Stamp Focus: Spring Daisy + MISTI Giveaway

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi everyone!

Svitlana is here today sharing several ways of using new amazing stamps set – Spring Daisy. This set is incredible, one of my favorite in this release. The flowers are so versatile and exceptionally beautiful.


I have four cards to share today.


The first one was very simple to make. I stamped a floral cluster in on a white panel using Moon RockEvening GrayMorning Frost inks. And I did all stamping with the help of my mini-MISTI. When it comes to layered stamping this tool especially comes handy. I masked the bigger flower when started stamping the smaller one, so they don't overlap. And then masked the smaller flower as well when started stamping leaves.

Additionally I stamped aside the biggest flower, die-cut it using corresponding Spring Daisy die and adhered it to the panel over the stamped flower using foam squares. Next I stamped the sentiment from set using Moon Rock ink.


I adhered the panel to a white card base adding using dimensional adhesive and added several clear droplets, some of which colored with COPICs to make them blue.


For the next card I first stamped flowers, stems and leaves on white panel. Masking was used here as well to prevent overlapping of images that are positioned on different visual layers. I used Ocean Waves and Dusk inks for flowers and  Evergreen for stems and leaves. As the white space wasn't the part of the design I planner I inked flowers with Ocean Waves ink using sponge dauber. Did the same for leaves and stems using Forest Glades ink. I didn't care about staying inside borders at this point. Just tried not to overlap inking in the spot where blue flowers and greenery meet.

Next I colored the whole background with black marker. At this point I realized that hadn't thought through where the sentiment would have to be. This happens to me ALL THE TIME haha. I think more then a half sentiments on my cards I made in the mode “damn! forgot about the sentiment! have to squeeze it somewhere now”. Usually I do a sentiment on a banner, which also can be a way to hide some boo-boos if there are any (another way to hide them are sequins). Sometimes I use a die-cut sentiment. But here I decided just to stamp it onto a flower. The sentiment I choose from Beautiful Lady set and stamped it using Jet Black ink.


Next I die cut the biggest flower from the panel using coordinating die. Adhered the panel to a card base made of Robin's Egg cardstock and adhered due cut flower in its negative space using black foam squares, so it raises a bit above the panel. Added clear droplets and sequins.


My third card is combination of my cardmaking and scrapbooking past: love to vintage (when I bought several pounds of vintage cardstock) and plans to start making mixed media projects (which caused buying the whole collection of Distress Paints). Sounds familiar?;)

I should say that I still love vintage. Especially in home decor (but lighter vintage, Pottery Barn-like). Speaking of cardmaking I don't make vintage cards any more and not sure if ever will. But from time to time I enjoy making “vintage clean and simple” cards ;)

For this card I first cut a panel from some vintagy patterned paper. This paper was one of my first scrapbooking purchases about 7 years ago, back when I was living in Ukraine. When I moved to US, I brought literally two pieces of closing and two huge suitcases full of cardmaking and scrapbooking supplies. And now, 7 years later, finally found the use for it. So was totally worth it dragging this paper over the Atlantic Ocean:) Well, at least this paper not only has some vintage design but also has its history.

I stamped a sentiment from Oriental Orchid set using Jet Black ink. Masked it and stamped flowers, stems and leaves also using Jet Black ink. Then stamped the second layer of flowers with Evening Gray ink to make a guide for me of where should I color. Colored flowers with Distress Picket Fence Paint covering areas stamped using the second later of the flowers. Next I colored flowers centers using Mustard Seed Distress Paint, and stems and leaves using Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress Paint.


I added some droplets of the same paint I used for coloring and adhered the panel to white card base.


For the last card I first cut a panel from white cardstock and stamped the bigger Daisy using Evening Gray ink. I made petals of this flower colored in rainbow colors stamping the second layer 7 times, each time using different inks. For each color I inked only part of the stamp, dabbed off some ink leaving only several petals inked and stamped. Then I moved to the next color. And of course I used my mini-MISTI to stamp exactly at the same spot every time.  The inks I used to create this rainbow are following: Ruby RedCaramel ToffeeWarm SunshineForest GladesOcean WavesDesert NightMidnight Violet.

Next I masked my rainbow flower and stamped several flowers, leaves and stems using Moon RockEvening GrayMorning Frost inks. And inked the whole panel using the same inks. Starting with the lightest, Morning Frost, applying it around the flower, and the two darkest, Moon Rock and Evening Gray, applying them towards the edges of the panel.


I adhered the panel to a gray card base, using a piece of black sticky-back foam as dimensional adhesive. Stamped a sentiment from Label Love set on white cardstock, cut it out and adhered to the panel. To finish my card I added several clear droplets.


I made a video-tutorial for this card, where I show how it was created

So much I want to say about your cards, but I’ll try to keep it short… 1) Flowers in gray tones on white can be so elegant!, 2) Bold blue flowers on black jump off the page and are stunning (still shaking my head that you colored the background with marker), 3) I love your clean and simple vintage card (recently made one for a friend). Some papers are timeless. 4) The card is a piece of happy art with an I-never-would-have-thought-of rainbow flower encircled by a halo to make it pop. Thank you for showcasing this lovely new stamp set, and thank you for the opportunity to win a Mini MISTI.

Jane McGill May 22, 2016 - 3:35 PM
