I’ve another very busy day today holding a 3 hour Daisy Lane Class. By the end of the class everyone will have completed 6 different projects using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, and I’ll be exhausted. For those who can’t attend in person I’ve prepared a Daisy Lane Project Pack. This contains a written tutorial and all the prepared pieces for them to make the 6 projects at home. All they have to do is order the Daisy Lane Stamp Set through me before July 22nd and I’ll send it to them for free.
So while I get on with the preparations for my class, here’s one of the 4 pretty cards we’ll be making.
BIG DAISIES LITTLE DAISIES
That sounds like a tongue twister we used to say as children. But the Daisy Lane Stamp Set does include two sizes of daisy images.
For my background I decided to use both daisies and the delicate Soft Sea Foam ink. I simply stamped a random design onto some Whisper White Card, fitting the daisies close together without overlapping them. Then I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to mount the stamped layer onto some Grapefruit Grove Card.
Next I wrapped two pieces of Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the layers and secured them on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Then using more liquid glue I attached the completed layers to the front of a Thick Whisper White Card base.
For the focal point I used Grapefruit Grove ink to stamp the smaller daisy onto a piece of Whisper White Card. Next I cleaned off the stamp and placed a 1/4″ round sticker over the centre of the daisy before reinking the stamp. Then I took the sticker off the stamp to reveal the clean area in the middle. Finally I stamped the daisy onto the card, fitting the petals between the petals of the first image.
Below the daisy I then used Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the “Friend” sentiment from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.
As before, I chose Grapefruit Grove Card for the mat and attached the sentiment to it using liquid glue. With that done I added the layered piece to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
All that was left was a few finishing touches, and for this I went back to the Soft Sea Foam ink pad.
On another layer of Whisper White Card I stamped the two daisies coming in around the bottom left and top right corners. Then I fixed the layer inside the card base with liquid glue.
Finally I stamped more daisies around the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope and my project was complete.
I’m really pleased with how this card turned out. Even though the background is covered in daisies it still has a really clean and fresh feel to it. The layout also allows plenty of room to substitute a different sentiment if needed. What do you think?

THERE’S STILL TIME
Although my in-person class is today, you still have time to get my free Daisy Lane Project Pack. Simply order the Daisy Lane Stamp Set (or Daisy Lane bundle) though me before July 22nd. Just make sure you allow Stampin’ Up! to share your contact details with me so I’ll know where to mail your Project Pack.
BUNDLE BONUS – I purchased the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in a bundle with the coordinating Medium Daisy Punch. This meant that I saved 10% off the cost of buying the two items separately. Although I didn’t use the punch today, I’ve included a link to the bundle so you can explore this option if you wish. Also coordinating with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set is the larger Daisy Punch. This second Daisy Punch also coordinates with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set too!
