You Make Me Smile with Stampin’ Up!’s Medium Daisy Punch

Two years ago I created a fun, layered card with the Daisy Punch that would soon become one of my most Pinned cards on Pinterest. I played around with the layers on the card with this punch. It has been so popular that I decided I should recreate the card with new colors and the new Medium Daisy Punch. Here’s my new card with the Medium Daisy Punch:

The card I created with the Medium Daisy Punch is a notecard size (3-1/2″ x 10″, scored at 5″). I lined the envelope flap with a fun design from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. Here’s the original card I shared two years ago with the larger Daisy Punch (a standard card size):

Daisy Punch, Ready to Pop, Birthday Delivery, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingNot only did I want to recreate this fun layering with the new punch, but I wanted to create a completely different feeling with new colors and stamps. It was simple, easy and fun – and I love the updated look of this fun favorite.

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Daisy Lane. How fun is this sweet, new bundle? The Daisy Lane Bundle includes the Daisy Lane stamp set (a mix of beautiful flowers and great sentiments) and the Medium Daisy Punch (a smaller version of the oh-so-popular Daisy Punch). The styling of this set works beautifully with the Daisy Delight stamp set (#143669), and the large flower in the Daisy Lane stamp set coordinates with the Daisy Punch (#143743). Here’s a look at this bundle: Daisy Lane Bundle, Stampin' Up! 151118
  • Building the Daisy. There’s something so happy about a daisy – you can’t ever go wrong with this flower. Here’s a look at the flower on my card before I added the sentiment: Layering the Medium Daisy Punch, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingHere’s how I built this flower:
    • I used the punch to crop a daisy from Thick Whisper White.
    • I cropped the negative space left on the Thick Whisper White with Layering Square Dies.
    • I glued that cropped square to a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock that measures 1/8″ longer and wider than the cropped square.
    • I used the punch to crop a daisy from Rococo Rose.
    • I glued the Rococo Rose to the Rococo Rose base. It might not show well in the picture of the card, but it’s more visible in person.
  • Sweet Color Combination. The colors I used on this card are very dusty and sweet. This mix of pink and green reminds me of sherbet ice cream, and the tan reminds me of a cone. Maybe I’m just jonesing for some sugar? If you like this combination of Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake, please save this: Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake
