You can't be sad with Daisies around, turning their faces towards the path of the sun


  • Stampin' Pretty Nature's Harvest & Daisy Gardens
  • Coordinating Harvest Dies, together with these stamps sets lets you create a card filled with Daisies 
  • Peaceful Christmas Paper Pumpkin October Kit

Today I found a bag with some precut papers, including the Crumb Cake and a print from the In Good taste Designer Series Paper.  As I looked at it, all I could think of was daisies next to a fence.  So I grabbed the Daisy Garden Stamp set and the Nature's Harvest Stamp Set and created a monochromatic card using as many Daisies as I could find.  I found that the Nature's Harvest Bundle included both the sentiments and the dies I needed to finish my cards.  A quick reminder:  We've begun the final month of Sale-a-Bration.  Until 30 September, for each $50 or $100 order you place (less tax and shipping), you'll earn FREE Sale-A-Bration selections.

Handmade daisy-themed Thank you card using Nature's Harvest Bundle and Daisy Garden Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

The photo below shows the details of this card the best.  I used a basecard of Crumb Cake.  Then a layer of Basic White Cardstock.  And finally a print from the In Good taste Designer Series Paper pack.  

Floral Thank-You Card using Daisy Garden Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

I stamped the Daisy Garden Stamp Set onto the In Good taste Designer Series Paper using Crumb Cake Ink.  It created the perfect background for the daisies from Nature's Harvest.  I first tried the three daisies in Crumb Cake Cardstock, but it seemed to fade into the background of the images behind it.  Then I tried the Soft Suede Cardstock stamped with Soft Sued Ink, and I loved that it gave two different looks.  From a distance, it appears as a silhouette of Daisies.  However, close up, you see the details of the stamped daisies on the Soft Suede cardstock. Combined with the subtle background images of the Daisy Garden, it created exactly the look I was going for.

The sentiment label also came from the Harvest Dies.  I die cut it form Basic White Cardstock, and stamped the sentiment from Nature's Harvest Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I tried several different embellishments, thinking that a pop of color would add to the card.  However, I settled on some Petal Pink gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems package.  They faded into the color scheme of the card and blended perfectly with the neutral background of the card.  To finish the card, I added a bow of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, and stamped a corner of my envelope with some of the Daisy Garden images.
