Delightful Daisy!!

Here is a simple , yet lovely little project we recently made at my Annual Spring Stamp Camp Event.  I was inspired by a project  made by  Ronda Wade using the frame and scriptures.

I added the bouquet of Daisies!
20180504_125409
Using the Daisy Punch…. punch out 10 Daisies and sponge each one with the same colored ink.  I used Pink Pirouette (sadly retiring….). with So Saffron centers.  I gave the choice to my customers different colors to choose from.  Many made black eyed susans using Crushed Curry, with Basic Black centers, Blue Daisies using Soft Sky (retiring) or Whisper White Daises with Saffron centers.  I wish I would have taken pictures of the other ones created…they were AWESOME!!  Anyway…..Adhere 2 daises together , add the center and adhere to floral wire on the back of the flower with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Place on the Wooden Clip Frame….found at Michael’s , with dimensionals…..add several Leaf Punches in Pear Pizazz.  I popped in bits of real baby’s breath for a touch of softness.

Tie it together with our New Dotted Swiss Ribbon found in the upcoming New Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Catalog.  Add the inspirational scripture and of course …a bee from Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets.

Every year with the New In Colors….I like to make a single , monochromatic card…showcasing each New In Color…and here we go….using the New Springtime Impressions Dies, I used the butterfly on each card spotlighted by a 1 1/4 inch circle punch of Copper Foil.
