I sure am getting a lot out of my daisy punch!

This blossom has three layers of petals.  The top 2  layers are sponged with yellow ink and streaked with gold WOS.  In the center is a gem from my stash which I've had for literally years.

The birthday greeting was embossed with gold ep, and the leaves were stamped and fussy cut.

The rainbow dsp was a scrap from a previous card.and is a nice backdrop for the flower.

...well, six of us anyway... 

This is the card I'm bringing for everyone to make.  The kits are all made up and ready to go for our get-together next week..  
Pop-up cards are always a lot of fun!

Talk about easy...

This was done with a few peg stamps and a hand drawn vine wreath for a late September birthday card.

The greeting is from an old wooden stamp set.

Before mounting this peach panel, I punched out the daisy and glued a piece of dsp behind it.  For some glimmer, I added a flower gem from my stash.  Then I used dimensionals to attach it to the card front.

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!


 Even though I enjoy using my dies, punches can be so handy.  This was done with 3 layers of sponged flowers with a smaller size in vellum on top.  The silver strip on the side is actually a border of washi tape.

After stamping the greeting, I splattered the front with purple ink and added the three green accents.

This was a quick card to make!

This card could not have been easier!

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...
