Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies bundle is a beautiful floral set that will be available next week when the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog launches. I paired it with the retiring Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ designer series paper for a note card. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a sketch challenge for our Blog Hop this week:
I adhered a panel of retiring Layering Designs vellum to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a Basic White panel with the Fern 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I adhered a Balmy Blue panel of Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ designer series paper on top of the embossed panel and there’s the card sketch for the challenge!
I cut all the dies for the three layered daisy flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies dies from Basic White. I used Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color the flower centers on the large multi-flower die cut and cut the leaves off with my paper snips. I adhered the back die cut layers to each flower with liquid glue and recolored the centers with the light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. I adhered the top detailed die cut layers to each flower and adhered the flowers to the card with dimensionals.
I stamped six leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I adhered them to the card front with a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set in Garden Green ink on Balmy Blue. I adhered it to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the card with glue dots. I finished the card with a Balmy Blue and white bow and gold sequins.
For the inside of the card, I trimmed the side of a Basic White panel with a strip of Country Garden DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal. This leaves plenty of room for a personal note.
Here’s the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies bundle – the photopolymer stamp set and coordinating dies. It will be available on Tuesday, May 2 when the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog opens for orders!
I love the fresh look of white daisies against a blue background and the retiring Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP is the perfect backdrop for the beautiful die cut daisies from the new Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Daisies bundle.
