ICS Blog Hop...Punch Me Out

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Cerate, & Share Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on Punches!  One of my favorite new punches is the Medium Daisy Punch.  This new punch is a must have.  It coordinates with the Daisy punch and the Daisy Lane stamp set.


The Medium Daisy punch can be purchased as part of a bundle with the Daisy Lane stamp set or byitself.  The daisies were stamped in Melon Mambo ink and punched out using the Medium Daisy punch.  I stamped and punched it twice for each flower.  The Leaf punch was used to create the Granny Apple Green leaves. 


The background was created using the new Birch background stamp inked with Crumb Cake ink.  The Birch background stamp is beautiful and one of the first things I ordered from the new catalog.


The centers of the daisies were created by inking Granny Apple Green card stock with VersaMark and embossing it with a mix of Clear Embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  A layer of Fine-Tip glue was applied over the centers to create a slightly dimensional and glossy finish.

Now it is time for you to check out what Cynthia has created for you.
