Daisy Delight - a Bundle that is just Delightful!

The name of this bundle says it all - Daisy Delight - it belongs to the Delightful Daisy Suite. The Suite has coordinating Designer Series Paper, Card Stock, Faceted Gems, Double Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight (even the colours sound like they fit right in), a Daisy punch and the beautiful Daisy Delight stamp set.

This Suite featured heavily at my launch last weekend and was very popular. Here are some of the items on display.


A bucket full of flowers just like the real ones. The little buckets can be purchased from Kmart in Australia - gold or black.

A close up of the flowers - the shape to the petals was from the bone folder. Oh and yes I am still engraving the Bone folders here in Australia you just need to pop me a message via my Facebook page HERE. Not on Facebook? I can be contaced through the 'Contact Me' button on my Stampin' Up! site.

My mum is one of my greatest cheer leaders and its not uncommon to be asked for a card for a friend - usually with a 'Oh I need to leave in 10 - can you do it?' So the bucket of loveabove went to our friend Joyce for her 80th birthday - I popped a 80 cake topper in there to add to the flowers. Below is the matching card with the sentiment from the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' stamp set.
Joyce and all the extended family mum was with loved it!

This card was one for my display with the sentiment from 'Just Add Text'.

So now about my Daisys - I am guessing you would like to know how I made them.
I purchased florists wire 28 and 18 gauge (because that's all they had) a small bucket and some fake greenery to pop in it, the other thing that's important is a ring of foam - I painted mine black to match the bucket.
Using the Daisy Delight Bundle and a few extra goodies the flower bucket is not difficult.

I punched 2 Whisper White flowers, a 1" circle that then has a small 1/16" hole punched in it, a Elegant Eggplant spot that's stamped (using the Daisy Delight Stamp set Daisy center) tone on tone then punched using the 1/2" circle. A piece of wire and a small pair of long nose pliers. I used Multi Purpose Glue and Glue dots.
Using the dauber I coloured the centers of the White flowers just a little.

The wire gets bent twice first to form a small hook then a second to lay that hook flat over the 1" circle.

If you look closely you can see where the Glue dots have landed. If you prefer you can use Multi Purpose Glue for added strength - I do on the 1" circle, the glue dots hold long enough for the glue to dry and between the 2 adhesives they haven't failed me yet.

So add the 3 layers of flower together - now you can add a little colour to the petal tips and shape your petals with your bone folder. You will note mine are not perfect or symmetrical.

I found turning the flower upside down on the work surface makes it easier to attach the 1" circle to the flower back.

The wire and foam makes positioning the flowers in the arrangement easy.
This photo below is where my inspiration comes from - I took a photo of some real Daisy's in my Physios garden  one day that were just so pretty.
So I couldn't help myself it was Daisy's everywhere - here is a coloured bucket. These ones were all stamped with the daisy stamp before punching them out as well. The centers in these ones have a dimensional under them - I am loving the small dimensionals for this small pop. The Pumpkin Pie flowers actually have 3 layers for a fuller flower.

To make the 3D Inspired Daisy's you will need these goodies - the Elegant Eggplant Cardstock you only need a scrap of though! In Australia you can click the pictures to be taken to the online store.
I hope you like my flowers - Till next time -
