Cheerful Daisies is one of those stamp sets that I honestly think I’ll never get tired of. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know I love daisies. They’re uncomplicated and come in a huge range of colours. Whether it’s the little wild ones that grow in the lawn or the much larger gerberas, they always make me smile. The projects I’ve made so far have all been spring and summer focused, so I decided to show the year-round versatility of this set with a more autumnal feel.
CHEERFUL ALL YEAR ROUND
I began my project like so many others, by experimenting. When I created this daisy I was simply trying out colour combinations.
From the Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set I took the largest daisy outline image and stamped it onto Basic White Card with Early Espresso ink. Next, using the coordinating solid stamp I added colour to the petals using Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I finished off the daisy using Crushed Curry ink and the larger of the two flower centre stamps. For the leaves I chose Shaded Spruce ink, stamping three in all.
With the stamping complete I pulled out the Cheerful Daisies Dies and found the ones designed to cut around the large daisy and leaf images.
Now I wanted a tag base and for that I chose the largest flat-topped die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies. Keeping with my autumnal feel I chose some of the new Pecan Pie Card.
Of course with a dark tag base I would need a lighter section to write on, so I cut a 1-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Basic White Card. Then with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I attached it to the back of the tag base.
To finish I fixed the three leaves to the front of the tag with liquid glue. Then I added the die-cut daisy using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I cut 6″ of Crumb Cake twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack. After folding it in half I passed the loop through the hole at the top of the tag. Then I threaded the cut ends through the loop and pulled gently to secure it in place. And just like that my latest daisy project was complete, and once again I was smiling.
BUNDLE BONUS – I bought the Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set and coordinating dies as the ‘Cheerful Daisies Bundle’. Using this single item number meant I saved 10% off the cost of buying the two products separately. I’ve included both options below so you can explore them further if you wish.
