I love the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper – I think it’s one of my favourites in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. It’s not just for daisy projects! Check out this versatile designer series paper Sunflower Card! Since one of the patterns in this paper package has a leaf motif, it could be used with any botanical (or not) themed image.
The main image on this card is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and I added an accent with the Leaf Punch that coordinates with the leaf images in the set. You can get these two items together in a discounted bundle as well! These images have a softer, more watercoloured look, which I love. Two step stamping, combining more than one stamped image to make a single, more complex image, is what initially drew me to Stampin’ Up! products, and it’s still one of my favourite things! Here, the petals are two layers, as is the leaf. I love that I can get such an artistic, detailed look so easily.
The edges of the cardstock are sponged with some Early Espresso ink, and Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon finishes everything off. When we did this card in class, I did cut out the backing square for the flowers from the larger Early Espresso cardstock – because I don’t like to waste cardstock!
Stampers Club members have found that I’ve used this Designer Series Paper a number of times in different months for various projects.

I did try to stretch my wings and pick up some DIFFERENT Designer Series Papers to use…..but I think because I like the colours in the Delightful Daisy package, I keep going back to it. I will try to work on that though….LOL. In the meantime, please continue to enjoy this versatile Designer Series Paper Sunflower Card….until I can work up the creative mojo to use a different package of paper!
