A Daisy (Punch) in the Negative

Do you see art in things that others would consider to be trash?  I absolutely do.  I have always held on to my tiny scraps of card stock and designer series paper, including the “negative” pieces from punches and die cuts – you just never know when the need for that perfect size or shape will come around.

If you have been following my posts for the last few days, then you know I have been using the Daisy Delight bundle.  When I was punching my daisies for yesterday’s project combo, I fished out scraps of card stock from my Very Vanilla stash and most of the pieces were squares perfectly sized to fit nicely into the punch.  I set the negative pieces aside and they caught my attention when I was mentally creating my next card design.

I cut a piece of Delightful Daisy designer series paper slightly smaller than the Very Vanilla negative piece and attached them together with dimensionals.  I created the border of designer series paper by weaving 1/2″ strips of the same designer series paper (flipped to the opposite side for contrast).  The daisy block is attached to the front of the card with more dimensionals.  The most time consuming part of this card was the weaving; otherwise, this was a quick and simple card.

Below are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card, all of which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

This one did not make it onto my pre-order, but I highly anticipate that it will end up in my collection sooner rather than later.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
