Delighted with Daisies

Happy Monday and Happy Daylight Savings Time.  I love when the clocks change this time of year.  That extra hour of daylight really cheers me up.  I hope this card will do the same for you!

Stampin Up Daisy Delight Thinking of You Card Ideas - Rosanne Mulhern

For today’s card, I pulled out the once popular but slightly forgotten Daisy punch.  This punch was the hit of the Annual Catalog back in June when it debuted but like a lot of really great products got pushed aside for newer sets.  I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to use most of the sets I’ve purchased and not get stuck using just the latest and the greatest!

You can click on the link in the Product List below to order any of the products I used on today’s card.  I think it’s a pretty straightforward card and just made me smile.

The daisies were punched from Very Vanilla card stock and sponged with So Saffron ink.  I punched the centers and embossed them for a little texture.

The leaves were stamped in Old Olive ink using an image from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, which is another under-used set in my collection.  They were hand cut.  Each flower is popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Best Birds stamp set, is stamped in Early Espresso ink and cropped with the Layering Ovals framelit.  The two additional layers are also cut from these framelits.  The Layering Ovals, Circles and Squares are such a staple to have and really earn their keep!

I added the sweet little bees from the Touches of Texture stamp set because the daisies I have in my flowerbeds always seem to have bees buzzing around them and I think these are just so cute.

The wood grain and gingham paper are non-SU but were so perfect for this card.  I have quite a collection of paper (like most card makers) and love it when I can find just what I need to create the look I envision.  I stamped the sweet little trio of daisies from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and used a Stampin’ Write marker to color the center.  I left the inside blank for a personal note.

Daisies are one of my favorite flowers. There’s a line from the movie You’ve Got Mail (which is one of my favorite movies) where Meg Ryan refers to daisies as such happy flowers and I agree!  So I hope today’s card made you smile!

HERE are two more cards I made using the Daisy punch…

  2. This is such a pretty card! But I think I like the pastel colored ones more – they are just beautiful with the green leaf die cuts in the background.

  5. Love your card and You’ve Got Mail is one of my faves too! Thanks for sharing your creative work.


  6. I LOVE your cards and recently started following you on Pintrest.

  7. Just found “thoughts for you” on pinterest – I LOVE it! I really appreciate that when one saves a photo from your blog, your name automatically is in the title. It’s so much easier than having to remember the name and how to spell it (because I can’t see it) while saving. Your card has sparked my imagination again! Thank you.

  8. The barn wood…. is that a stamp? I’d love it
