Last weekend we spent an extended weekend at our cabin. It was nice and peaceful, which gave me time to stamp for fun.
One of the stamp sets I brought with me as the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set. Also available in a Bundle & Save 10% with the NEW Medium Daisy Punch. This was one of the projects I came up with...
For this card, I kinda went "old school" and reached for my Stamping Sponges, which I haven't done in a long time. It actually brought back memories from when I first began stamping. Sponging was all the rage!

How'd She DO That? tips:
Direct to Paper Technique:
- On Whisper White panel, swipe Sahara Sand ink using Direct to Paper technique. Drag ink pad across cardstock.
- I did the top half in one direction and the bottom half in the other direction
- TIP: depending on how firmly you press on to the cardstock will determine how dark the ink will transfer. I prefer a light to medium "press" (you can always add more if you want).
Three Ways to Sponge:
- For the "swiped" panel, first stamp multiple leaves with Old Olive ink, stamp a couple times before re-inking again. Then sponge the edges using a "circular" motion. Start off the cardstock (on scratch paper), moving onto the edges of the panel. Repeat on all four sides. Repeat again for a darker edge (the photo shows a darker edge)
- For the Old Olive Rectangle, I used a "flicking motion". Hold the cardstock in one hand and the sponge in the other. Press sponge onto ink pad, then "flick" the sponge against the edges of the cardstock.
- For the Daisy pieces:
- Cut 4 flowers using the Medium Daisy Punch (you'll need 2 flowers for each full flower)
- The flowers I pounced ink in the center, carefully moving outwards a little bit. Then "flick" the tip of the petals. NOTE: you'll need to flower punch outs for each flower.
- The flower center is stamped stamped tone-on-tone (Sahara Sand) using the large daisy image. Sponge the center, then fussy cut out (or use 1/2" circle punch. Then "flicked" the edges.
Transform Timeless Label punch out into a tag by trimming off one end. I see myself using this "trick" a lot in the future!
I have to admit, this was not the card I started out to create. But as I only brought limited supplies with me, it forced me to go in a different direction. In the end, I was more than pleased with the finished card. What do you think?
So...you may have noticed over the past few weeks, I seem to have a new "favorite" stamp set each week.
This week, my favorite is the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118 - save 10%)
- It's easy to show your friends & family how much you love and support them with a stunning daisy card, like today's card.
- And...the Medium Daisy Punch is a fun way to add daisies to your projects (size is approximately 1-5/8")
