Two friends came over today to make the daisy framed art piece pictured in the catalog. They each made 2 of them. Even though I had already made 3 myself I had fun helping them get all of the pieces punched an die cut.
Make note of the difference when talking about the flowers and the daisies. The flowers refer to the finished stack of daisies.
To make one of these you need 4 large flowers and 4 small flowers in your choice of colors. Flowers are made using stamped and punched daisies in addition to punched daisies that are not stamped. The colors I used are Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather (stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink), Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Grapefruit Grove. I used Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow for the leaves.
Large Daisies: Stamp and punch 2 large daisies. Additionally punch out 1 that you don’t stamp. Do this for each color flower you want.
Small Daisies: Stamp and punch 2 small daisies. Additionally punch out 1 that you don’t stamp. Do this for each color flower you want.
Using a bone folder curl the petals upward on all daisies.
The centers are punched 1-1/8″ scalloped circles that have been cut part way towards the middle in between the scallops. Curl with bone folder.
Small brown centers are the large daisy stamp center punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch adhered using a dimensional.
Each large daisy stack consists of a total of 3 large daisies and 3 small daisies with the non stamped daisies on the bottom of the stamped ones. Each small daisy stack consists of a total of 3 small daisies with the non stamped one on the bottom.
Glue daisies together rotating the petals.
Large Flower: Use glue or a dimensional to adhere the small daisy stack to the large daisy stack. These are all the same color. The scallop circle center is a different color.
Leaves are a combination of punched and die cut leaves and punched sprigs.
Here is the close up again of the one I made so you can see the layering.
I hope this all makes sense.
It’s been a long day since I woke up at 4 AM and have been busy ever since so I’m headed to bed.
