The Daisy Garden stamp was one I wanted right away when I saw it in the new catalog but when I opened it up and set it on my craft table to use – my mind kind of went blank.
This stamp set is probably great for those crafters that color – I like to color but am not the best at it (I continue to practice, though – maybe there’ll be improvement). So what would I do with this wonderfully detailed stamp?
I turned to the annual catalog for inspiration – there were some great samples but I didn’t want to recreate them. I thought and I thought – went and cooked dinner – and then came back and decided on the above project.
I picked some colors of card stock that I though would go together (Misty Moonlight, Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya, and Smoky Slate) and cut out a 4 x 5 piece of each. I then used my Stamparatus to help me stamp the image on each color in the same area of the card stock. I cut the pieces into 1 1/2 inch horizontal strips. I glued these pieces to a scrap of white cardstock and then trimmed off any uneven edges. I used a 15″ length of Black Baker’s Twine to tie a decorative bow around this.
I used a sentiment from the Through It Together set, punched that out with my Classic Label Punch (most useful punch ever), and adhered onto that daisy image with mini dimensionals over the twine. I added some Matte Black Dots to the sentiment (so happy these carried over form the mini catalog). I then used dimensionals to place that whole piece atop a Thick Basic White card base.
I love how they came out – and want to try it in different color combos. Which colors do you like to go together? Let me know in a comment.
