Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!
When I saw the color challenge, my brain screamed DAISY LANE! Like most of us, when my brain screams – I listen. So…Daisy Lane it was. Take a look-see:
Guess – no really! – guess what the color challenge is??!
I started with a piece of Old Olive card stock and stamped the pretty ferny leaf from Daisy Lane all over it in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone “DSP”. Then I embossed the panel in my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!
While I had the embossing folder handy, I embossed a piece of Whisper White and matted it on Daffodil Delight. I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I pulled out my Well Written Dies and cut “thanks” from some Pool Party card stock, then adhered it vertically on the embossed Whisper White panel. I made a bunch of ferny leaves with the new Lovely Leaves Die – cutting several from Old Olive card stock and Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock pack.
For the Daisy – which might not even be a daisy anymore….maybe a yellow dahlia?? – I stamped the large and small flowers from Daisy Lane twice each in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White. Using a Blender Pen, I pulled ink around in the petals to color them.
I punched out all the flowers – using the carry-over Daisy Punch for the large flowers, and the Medium Daisy Punch (bundled with Daisy Lane for a 10% savings) for the smaller ones.
I also punched some flowers from So Saffron vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum pack.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the card front in an ever-so-artisic way. I also adhered all the flowers in a stack to create my “daisy”.
I stuck a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my flower and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread in several loops. Then I stuck the flower onto the card front and “ruffled” the petals a little with my fingers to give it a little “boost”!
I added a new silver Designer Element to the middle of the flower and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used the smaller flower from Daisy Lane to add a Daffodil Delight flower in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I added some Old Olive leaves and a second Daisy Lane sentiment in Pool Party. And another Designer Element!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and leaves on the front…
…and more of the Old Olive ferny leaves on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I do so love the new Daisy Lane stamp set and the bundled Medium Daisy Punch is just the bomb-diggety. SUCH a perfect addition to our “stable” of punches. I hope you like!
