Well as you may know, goodies from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue will be available from June 1st. As a demonstrator you get chance to order some of the new products before they go on sale. I've resisted sharing any sneak peeks until now, as it always feels a bit mean to show things you cannot buy yet - but today I had a bit of a play with some items in the Delightful Daisy Suite and just had to share these cards with you. There is a stamp set, Designer Series Paper (DSP), a daisy punch, as well as some embellishments and ribbon that co-ordinate perfectly!
For this card I used a piece of DSP, the punch and a sentiment from the stamp set, along with some markers and also a die from a current set to make the center of the flower.
I have to admit that this card did not turn out how I first planned it - I started off with stamped daisies in Daffodil Delight (they will be used on another card) plus the strip of DSP. Then I was drawn to the colour of the daisies on the paper and decided to try to make my punched daisies look the same. I used Soft Sky on one set (which you will see in the card below), Smoky Slate on another, and then finally Night of Navy applied with the blender pen which I used on the card.
Time to make the centre of the flower - I discovered that all my circle punches and dies were either too small, or mostly too big! Thinking there must be something I can use instead of having to try to hand cut a circle, as I knew that would not go well... so I had a look through my die collection and chose one of the squify circles from the Swirly Scribbles set. I used the Daffodil Delight marker to colour it - making small dots on the die cut, then colouring all over and then adding another layer of colour in a semi-circle fashion on one side.
Then I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy, added the DSP and the flowers and there you have it!
Here is the other version I made using the daisies I made using the Soft Sky marker, Peekaboo Peach ink for the centre and a different piece of the DSP.
I hope you have enjoyed this peek at some of the new goodies that will soon be available - make sure you pop back on June 1st to see the new catalogue!
