Daisy Delight Daisy

Hello, Crafters.

Do you agree that these two colours go together brilliantly - Lemon LIme Twist and Tranquil Tide?

I think it's a brilliant combo! 

Today's card is my first real play with the daisy in the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and the Daisy Punch.

I started my card with a base of Tranquil Tide Cardstock (CS), followed by a layer of Lemon Lime Twist CS and a top layer from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack. 

I stamped the daisy twice onto a piece of Whisper White CS, offsetting the petals with the second stamp. 

I layered this onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twst CS and then a layer of Tranquil Tide CS. 

Before I adhered the image to the card front with Dimensionals, I added a strip of of Fresh Florals DSP layered onto a strip of Tranquil Tide CS.

Using Tranquil Tide Ink, I stamped the Birthday GREETINGS sentiment, which is from the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set, onto a piece of Whisper White CS.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits, oval die no.2 to die cut the sentiment. 

I layered this onto a Lemon Lime Twist Scalloped Circle, die cut using the Layering Oval Framelits.

This was then layered onto a straight cut oval - from the same set of dies - of Tranquil Tide CS. 

This was also adhered to the card front with Dimensionals. 

To create the 3D daisy, I stamped it three times onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using Tranquil Tide Ink. 

Then I punched them out using the Daisy Punch. 

I curled all the petals around a pencil, and then adhered all three daisies on top of each other, offsetting each layer, by applying Tombow into the centre circle only. 

For the centre of the daisy, I stamped the outline stamp of the daisy centre, which is one of two, two-step stamping stamps, using Tranquil Tide Ink on Lemon Lime Twist CS.

I punched it out using a half inch Circle Punch, and adhered it in the centre of the daisy with Tombow.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the daisy, using Tranquil Tide Ink, in the bottom right-hand corner of a Whisper White CS layer. 

I created a centre for the daisy in the same way I created the one on the front of the card.

 I adhered this layer to a Lemon Lime Twist Layer and then into the centre of the card.

We really do have some fabulous produts in our new catalogue. 

I'm so looking forward to my delivery which is due on Wednesday!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. You're so right Jan, this combo of colours is a real winner, and I LOVE your card again this morning. Beautiful colours, stamps, and DSP ... a real winner!! TFS again ~

    1. Hi, Geraldine. I'm glad you like it, too! And to think I didn't like Lemon Lime Twist originally! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  2. What a stunning card, I think I will have to invite that daisy set to come live with me, seeing what you did makes it look so much better than in the book

    1. Hi, Kaye. I agree! I'm not really into daisies but this stamp and co-ordinating punch work so well together, it's brilliant. I hope you don't have to wait for your new lodger to arrive! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  3. Well i didn't like this color when i first saw it.you have done a wonderful job of teaming it up with the other color. It looks very pretty.

    1. Hi, Pearl. Just like me! I thought it was going to be very gaudy because I thought it was fluorescent! Although it's still a bright colour, it's somewhat muted. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
