Today I have 2 additional cards from the beautiful Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper. These are two of the smaller 3″ x 2″ designs that I cut from this sheet of designer paper.
My first card today highlights the “NEW” Moody Mauve… it’s prettier in person, not the best lighting on this photo and I appologize. I am also using the NEW Layering Leaves stamp set on both cards today.
The designer paper piece cuts to 3″ x 2″ and has a Basic White mat that measures 3-1/8″ x 2-1/8″ … The card front has a strip of Moody Mauve that I stamped the floral images in the coordinating Moody Mauve ink. This piece measures 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ then matted with Basic White measuring 5-1/2″ x 1-5/8″.
Using a piece of scrap, I stamped my greeting in Moody Mauve and die cut it using the Stylish Shapes. Dies. I’m thinking I should have added some bling to this card! What do you think?
My second card for today highlights the NEW Pebbled Path and another design from our Fresh as a Daisy Designer paper.
The “green” designer paper designer paper piece cuts to 3″ x 2″ and has a Pebbled Path mat that measures 3-1/8″ x 2-1/8″. The three strips of designer paper are cut to 4″ x 1-1/2″ and are leftovers from my stamping retreat … I can’t let that pretty paper go to waste!
I stamped my greeting and daisy in Pebbled Path and die cut both … the greeting dies come from the Stylish Shapes. I use them a lot! Super simple cards to make, but that is the point right!? I want to inspire you to use up these little pieces from this sheet of designer paper.
I would like to invite you to join me tonight for my Facebook LIVE … I will be sharing how to cut this sheet of the Fresh as a Daisy designer paper that I’ve been sharing samples with you the past few days! Plus … I’ll also be sharing MORE cards.
I hope you are enjoying all the samples of cards created from the pieces cut from that 12″ x 12″ sheet of Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series paper. Hope to see you tonight … Here’s the link to my Facebook page / CLICK HERE!!
Today I have 2 additional cards from the beautiful Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper. I have more of the NEW Colors share with you today too.
Let me start with the Designer paper as a reminder of how I’m getting all of these cute patterns …
My first card today highlights the “returning” Pretty Peacock and the New Wild Wheat. I am also highlighting the NEW Layering Leaves stamp set (I LOVE this set!!) on both cards today, yesterday I used the greetings from the Cheerful Daisy stamp set.
The designer paper piece cuts to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and has a Wild Wheat mat that measures 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ … The card front was then layered onto the returning color; Pretty Peacock that measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″.
Using a piece of scrap, I stamped my greeting in Pretty Peacock and die cut it using the NEW Nested Essentials Dies, then I used the small banner die from the same set and cut two Wild Wheat and two Pretty Peacock banners to create the layering behind the greeting … it creates and nice focal point to the card. I then embellished the card with the Wild Wheat dots from the 2023-25 In Color Dots.
My last card for the day highlights the NEW Bubble Bath and Pebbled Path … I love pink and grey together and this card turned out stunning!
The designer paper that looks like it was painted in Pebbled Path measures 3″ x 4″ and is not matted, instead I used 3 Bubble Bath squares that were die cut from Stylish Shapes and were just “left overs” from my retreat. I also stamped my greeting in Pebbled Path directly onto one of the blocks.
The Pebbled Path base measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″ was stamped with the Daisy image in Pebbled Path to create dimension and a cute background. I really like using the “Color on Color” technique! My daisy and center was stamped in Moody Mauve and then highlighted with a hint of Bubble Bath in the center by using the Sponge Dauber … both were die cut along with extra leaves and they layered onto the front of the card. I then embellished the card with the Pebbled Path dots from the 2023-25 In Color Dots.
I hope you are enjoying all the samples of cards created from the pieces cut from that 12″ x 12″ sheet of Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series paper. I have more in store!!
Today I have 3 cards I’d like to share with you from the beautiful Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper. The sheet that I am using was designed for you to create many different cards!! You’ll see how easy it is to create the pretty cards in no time at all … plus you’ll be introduced to some of the NEW colors.
Let me start with the new Bubble Bath (pink) …
The daisies cut to 4″ x 4″ from the sheet and was adhered to a piece of 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ Basic White. Our base is 11″ x 4-1/4″ then scored and folded at 5-1/2″. I used a piece of Garden Green scrap for a pop of color and tied a pretty little bow from White Bakers twine. I then stamped my greeting in Crushed Curry to pull that color from the flowers, and added 3 Tinsel Gems (4 pack) that are “Berry Burst” color but looked great on my card. I finished it off with some Wink of Stella on the White daisy petals.
My second card highlights the new Wild Wheat ….
The flower piece cuts to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and has an Early Espresso mat that measures 3-7/8″ x 5-3/8″ … I then added a strip of Wild Wheat to each side so it stretched out to 4-1/8″ inch. The card front was then layered onto the Basic White base that measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″. Using a piece of scrap, I stamped my greeting in Early Espresso and snipped the ends off at an angle to create a different look.
My third and last card for the day highlights the NEW Copper Clay and Boho Blue…
The daisies cut from our designer paper measure 4″ x 5-1/4″ and matted with Basic White measuring 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ … this is secured to the Copper Clay base that measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″. I used the Stylish Shapes to cut out my circle for the greeting (stamped in Copper Clay) and the Copper Clay cardstock to die cut the banner. I embellised with the Adhesive Backed Solid Gems in Boho Blue.
Tomorrow I will be back with the other pieces cut from that 12″ x 12″ sheet of Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series paper.

I learned something new today ….
What is the Centre of a daisy called?
A single stem arises carrying the flower head – this is not just one flower, but a composite of a number of tiny flowers which make up the yellow disc in the middle (‘disc florets‘) and the surrounding white ‘ray florets’ (which look just like petals).
