Daisy Garden: Spotlighting Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Tired of the cold? I’ve got the perfect card to warm you up … bright and colorful highlighting the Daisy Garden Stamp set and the Spotlight Technique! This little cutie will make you yearn for Spring!

*** I love this technique – It’s a great way to add a pop of color to images that one would think needs the entire image to be colored, so it’s quick and easy and still beautiful.


  • Parakeet Party:  5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼” 
  • Polished Pink: 4” x 5 ¼”  
  • 2 pieces of Shimmery White: 3 ¾” x 5”


  • Stamp the Daisy Garden Stamp on 2 separate pieces of Shimmery White cardstock. (Use the Stamparatus to ensure that you have a nicely stamped dark image. If a part of the image is not stamped nicely on the cardstock, you can re-ink and stamp it again.)
  • Use the 3 smallest sizes of the circle dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies cut out pieces from the 2nd stamped Shimmery White cardstock.
  • Colour the flowers and leaves that are in the cut-out circles using Stampin’ Blends. (Tip: I used the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to fill all the “white space” on the circles.)
  • Use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shimmer to the flower petals.
  • Add a piece of ribbon to the fully stamped Shimmery White cardstock. Take a smaller piece of ribbon and tie a knot on the right hand side of the card.
  • Add the Stitched Circles on top of the cardstock using Dimensionals.
  • Adhere the Shimmery White cardstock to the Parakeet Party cardstock.
  • Add the layers to the card using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.
  • Stamp the greeting from Sweet Songbirds stamp set on a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock using the Polished Pink ink. (I cut the cardstock to the correct size after stamping it)

I hope this card inspires you to try out this technique … it really is quite simple, and can really add a pop of color! What a great way to warm someones day when it’s so cold outside (at least it is where I am) lol

Thanks for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.
