Welcome to the Controlfreaks Spring Blog Tour! Robin wowed you with some fabulous projects. And now I'm excited to share a couple of fun Daisy projects with you today.
When I think of spring, I think of flowers. Especially Daisies! So, I decided to have some fun playing with Stampin' Up!'s Flower, Daisies Die #2 (for the Big Shot) and came up with a couple of outside-the-box ways for using the die cuts. One of the cool features about the Daisy die is you get THREE different sized Daisies from it! Gotta love that!
So, while I was playing with the Daisy Die, I was reminded of dry embossing with die cuts. I've seen a few samples of the dry embossing with punch-outs & die cuts, but I wanted something that would create an even deeper impression. So, using the smallest Daisy flower, I handmade my own Texturz Plate! Woohoo - so exciting.
Here's my custom made "Daisy Texturz Plate". A little worn from wear, but still works. Ain't it cool?
Here's my card...
Supplies: Picture This (Hostess Level One from Occassions Mini), Basic Black cardstock and ink, Crushed Curry cardstock and Ink, Whisper White Cardstock, Sponge Dauber, Big Shot, Flower-Daisies #2, Impressions Pad, Silicone Rubber Pad, Curly Label Punch, Black Gingham Ribbon, thin chipboard

For my next project, I used the middle sized Daisy. For durability, I die cut it with heavier cardstock - like Confetti Cream (which is a heavier weight than Stampin' Up's Whisper White). I used the Daisy cut-out as a "mask" to randomly sponge "daisy shapes" on my card. I LOVE the way this turned out! PLUS - SO easy!
Here are Dawn's Daisies!
Supplies: Big Shot, Flower-Daisies #2, Pumpkin Pie cardstock and ink, Crushed Curry cardstock and ink, Whisper White, Sponge Daubers, Whisper White Satin & 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbons, 5/16" Jumbo Brads
