Using a scrap of coordinating cs, I die cut "birthday" and coated it with clear WOS. The "happy" was stamped on a scrap of vellum, cut to size and glued to the card with Glossy Accents. It was then coated with WOS to keep the glue from showing.
Another easy card!

This card was "built" on a foundation of embossed white cardstock, lightly sponged with green ink and mounted on a white card base.
After punching two daisies and coloring the top one with yellow ink, I added white gel pen lines from the center outward. I then layered it over another daisy punched in white cs and lightly sponged with the same yellow ink as the top one. After stamping the center, I used a glue dot to hold them together. Then I added the gold sequin in the center and mounted the daisy on the card front with a dimensional.
The greeting with stamped on a scrap of white cs and mounted over the "birthday" die cut (2 layers) which is coated with clear WOS. The leaves were stamped, fussy cut, and slipped under the flower with liquid glue.
After adding a few more sequins for embellishment, the card was done. I can see why this daisy punch has been selling out--it surely is delightful to use!
After stamping the greeting, I splattered the front with purple ink and added the three green accents.
This was a quick card to make!

First, I used the Daisy punch on the card front as shown. After choosing a simple design of dsp, I trimmed it to 4x5 1/4 and mounted it behind the cut outs. Next, I added the two little white daisies with rhinestones in the center of each.
Using a tiny scrap from the dsp leftovers, I stamped "Happy" and mounted it above the first daisy. Then I die cut the larger word from a scrap of green cardstock. After mounting it and adding the inside greeting, the card was done.
This punch will definitely see a lot of use!

For the first 3 weeks of July the heat and humidity kept me out of the Stamping Tower with its western exposure to the afternoon sun. The last week was spent on the Outer Banks for our family vacation (and then the recovery from the long ride home.) So just for the record, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!
I hope to be posting soon...

Also on my desk was "Flowering Fields," a Stampin' Up Sale-a-bration stamp set.
For the first card, I chose a confetti card base. After attaching the panel with Fast Fuse, I stamped the circle with one of the flowers from the stamp set. Then I used colored pencils to color in the flowers and leaves, which covered up the underlying design. I then chose a bold sentiment which is stamped on the dsp strip.
The second card started with a textured white card base and the gray panel. After adding the strip of dsp on the left, I stamped and colored the flowers on a white rectangle. I used a pale yellow for the flowers, matching it to the yellow in the dsp. After tying some bakers twine around the bottom, I added the greeting on the other strip using Versafine Warm Gray to keep it soft.
This was a fun self-challenge!.
