Sneak Peek #1 - Delightful Daisy

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!
