Making Daisies Pop on Kraft Paper using White Craft Ink

  • Welcome Inn June 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit has add-on dies
I'm again using the Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies Bundle from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.  Today I'm using a Kraft background and White Kraft Ink with one of the daisy images from the Cheerful Daisies Bundle.  I added Early Expresso, Pecan Pie, and Old Olive Cardstock to my card along with stamping on Kraft Sheets.  The tip I would pass on is that I found that stamping each Daisy twice with Craft White Ink helps the ink "pop".  I die cut the circle before I stamped so I could position my daisies better.  After stamping the daisies, I added the die cut accents to each daisy, and then stamped the center of each daisy in Early Espresso ink.  I also stamped and die cut the leaves in this set and die cut branches from Pecan Pie Cardstock using the Cheerful Daisies Dies.  I stamped the stems in Old Olive ink, and matted the smaller Kraft layer in Old Olive Cardstock.  I popped the circle up on Dimensionals to add interest, and added several Glossy Dots to brighten up the card.  I stamped one of the sentiments in the Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set in Versamark Ink, covered it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with my Heat Tool.  I think this card works for several occasions, including as a Thank You card.  How would you use this card?

Floral Greeting Card using Stampin' Up! Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set

The basecard for today's card is Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then I used a 5-14 X 4-1/4" piece of Kraft paper to cover the Thick Basic White Cardstock.  I used a smaller piece of Kraft paper as my image area, and matted it in Old Olive Cardstock.  Before I began stamping, I die cut the circle from my image later of Kraft paper i wanted to use up from the recently retired annual catalog.  While our Kraft paper has retired, we do carry Kraft Notecards and Envelopes, which you could use to CASE this card.  Order item #159247 | $10.00 USD.

Next, I stamped all of the daisies in White Craft Ink using one stamp from the Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set.  As the ink dried, I realized that these daisies tended to fade into the Kraft paper.  Since this is a clear photopolymer stamp set, I was easily able to stamp over each daisy image a second time, which resulted in a brighter white.  Then I used the coordinating dies in the Cheerful Daisies Dies to die cut the accent pieces for the daisies.  White I added them on these cards, I also created a sample where I didn't use the die cut overlays on the daisies, and I prefer the more plain version.  You'll want to try this both ways to see which you prefer.  I stamped the stems of the daisies and leaves in Old Oliver, and die cut the leaves before adding them to the card.  And I die cut additional foliage from Pecan Pie Cardstock and tucked it under the circle area.   

Greeting card with white Daisies on Kraft Background

To finish the card, I used one of the  sentiments from the Cheerful Daisies Stamp Set, and stamped it in Versamark onto a 1/2" wide strip of Early Espresso Cardstock.  I covered the stamped sentiment in White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I added several Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots to the card front, and cut a flag end into one end of the sentiment before mounting it on Dimensionals and adding it to the card.
