Daisy Delight with Polished Stone in Handmade Card

Here’s a handmade card that combines the Daisy Delight Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! with the Polished Stone technique.

I had put this technique on the back burner since Stampin’ Up! stopped carrying Glossy White Cardstock a few years ago.  But they brought it back in the 2017 Annual Catalog, and I’m thrilled!  There are techniques you can only do with Glossy White Cardstock, and this one could end up being one of your favorites!

When you stamp on Glossy Cardstock, you need to remember it’s very slick, and your inked stamp can shift position so it ends up blurring.  Maybe you can see areas that blurred, like the bee image.  But what the heck!  The card is pretty awesome, and the blurring reminds me of a windy day in the garden, so I went with it!

I’ve used Daisy Delight in several cards.  In case you’ve missed them, check out these blog posts:  Daisy Delight with In Colors, and Daisy Delight on Sponged Background (with technique video).

You may be aware that this Bundle has been so popular that the Daisy Punch was out of stock and not orderable until this week.  So if you’ve been waiting to order it, now’s the time!

You may already know, but I’m on a Foil Sheet kick.  I love how it frames the artwork in a way that really draws the attention to it.  The top card has a Gold Foil Sheet layer, and the bottom card has a Copper Foil Sheet mat.  The camera makes them look the same.  🙁  But in person you can really see the difference.  The Gold enhances the warm background of the first card, and Copper complements the neutral background in this next version.

Which version do you like best?  They create very different moods, and I wouldn’t want to have to choose!

    Sage, you know I want the video. I like the first card best. Question> Can we use our rectangles for the top layer and maybe scrunch the top corners upward? I don’t know , but this was my first thought. then I thought , maybe stiches would look good.

      Of course I know you want the video, Bernice! I’m not sure I know what you’re asking me about. Give me a call, and maybe you can straighten me out. 🙂
