So, here’s an easy one for you to try. The assorted colors in the 2020-22 In-Color 6×6 pack of designer series paper that includes Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider is perfect to make multiple cards in the same design. I combined those papers with the Daisy Lane stamp set and large and medium daisy punches to create today’s cards. I had already used up the Misty Moonlight DSP, so I instead used some Boho Indigo 6×6 DSP which you can get as part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley and costs $70.00 (but comes with a long list of products that you would receive); or you can get the DSP as part of the Boho Indigo refill kit that costs only $23.00. I loved the repetitive theme of this card while at the same time each of them looks different because of the color of the paper. For the sentiments, I used different ones for each card that I took from different stamp sets. You can select sentiments from any stamp sets you have on hand.

Supplies

  • Daisy Lane stamp set
  • Large and Medium daisy punches
  • Basic White thick cardstock
  • In Color cardstock – Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight
  • In Color stamp pads – Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight
  • In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper
  • Boho Indigo 6×6 DSP and paper flowers from Medley or Refill kit
  • Layering squares dies

Measurements and Instructions

  • For the card base, cut colored cardstock at 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side
  • Turn paper to the 11″ side and cut 1 1/4″ off one end
  • Then score at 5 1/2″ (one side will be shorter than the other)
  • Cut the DSP (with the little circles) at 4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ and adhere to the short side of the card base
  • Using one of the larger scalloped dies from the Layering Dies, run the script DSP and die through your Stampin Cut & Emboss machine which will give you a 3″ x 3″ square.
    • Or you can cut it with your trimmer if you don’t mind just a plain edge all around
  • Cut the white square layer with a smaller plain die which will give you a square measuring 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″, or you can cut it with your trimmer.
  • Adhere each of those layers one on top of the other with multipurpose glue or Stampin’ Seal
  • Using one color stamp pad at a time, stamp two large daisies and one small one on a scrap of white cardstock in each of the colors: Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight
    • Make sure to clean your stamps before moving on to the next color
  • Punch out the images using the large and medium daisy punches and put each of the color sets together
  • Curl the flower petals slightly using your thumbnail or a pair of scissors. Just curl them slightly for dimension.
  • Adhere a large glue dot onto the back of a large daisy piece and set it on top of the other large image slightly offset so the flower petals are in between each other.
  • Adhere a couple of small glue dots to the back of the small daisy image and attach it to the top of the two larger ones – again so the petals are between the petals of the layer below. This will give it depth.
  • Now attach a large glue dot to the bottom of the image and adhere it to the white square on the card.
  • Take a large paper flower from the Boho Indigo flower pack for the center of the flower. To ensure good adhesion, use Stampin Seal+ and set the flower in place. I tried a glue dot and even liquid glue but neither gave me good adhesion. But Stampin Seal+ did.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a standard piece of white cardstock 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Stamp a sentiment on the bottom and adhere to the inside of the card. Because the card is shorter in the front, the sentiment can be seen without having to open the card, and the sender will have lots of room to write a message.

While you can use sentiments from any stamp set you have on hand, I will share what I used:

  • Happy Birthday from Posted for You
  • Happy Anniversary from Many Mates
  • Sorry you’re feeling blue from Boho Indigo
  • A little note from Butterfly Gala

This card is a good way to get the most from one stamp set and punches. While I used In Color and Boho Indigo DSP, you could just as easily use a combination of other DSP. The beauty of Stampin Up products is the color coordination. For every pack of DSP, there are several different designs in the same set of colors that can be used together as well as coordinating cardstock and ink. You could come up with all kinds of combinations. And if daisies aren’t your thing, you could use a butterfly stamp set and dies. Who doesn’t like butterflies? Or you could use the dragonfly stamp set and punch.

At the end of this post is a list of supplies I used to make these cards.

I hope I have given you something to think about, so now it’s your turn to get creative. Until next time, happy stamping.
