Popped Daisy

For today's card, I've used materials that I've had around my craft room for quite a while. The Uppsy Daisy stamp has been retired from Stampin' Up for a few years but it's still a great stamp.

Materials needed:
Upsy Daisy stamp set (SU retired #111710)
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
Subtles Candy Dots (SU #130933)
Basic Pearls (SU #119247)
Gumball Green ink pad
Marina Mist Striped Organdy Ribbon (SU retired)
White card stock, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" & 2 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Glue Dots
Stampin' Dimensionals
Brilliant Blue Acrylic paint
Stipple brush or other stiff bristle brush
Word Window punch

1. Score and fold the 8 1/2" piece of white card stock at 4 1/4."
2. Open the card stock up to paint. Pour a small amount of acrylic paint onto a plate. Dab the brush into the paint and then dab it on to the card stock. Be sparring with the amount.

When the card stock is covered with paint, allow time to dry. The amount of time needed will depend on how thick you put on the paint.
3. On the other piece of card stock, stamp the daisy image in Gumball Green ink.

Stamp twice across the width of the card stock. Cut out the image along the top of it.
4. After the paint is dry, stamp the daisy image on top of the blue painted card stock with Gumball Green ink. Stamp two images next to each other across the bottom. Stamp a third image in the center, higher than the other two.
5. Add several pieces of dimensionals to the back of the cut out daisy piece. Be sure to put enough to support the card stock. Lay this carefully on top of the painted and stamped card stock, lining it up with the bottom.
6. Stamp a greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set with Gumball Green on white card stock. Punch this out with the Word Window punch. Rub Gumball Green ink on around the edges of the punched greeting and adhere to the top right corner of the card. Place Candy Dots on the outside edges of the punched greeting. This will give it the look of brads without having to have a brad go completely through the card.
7. Add 3 small pearls on to the flower image.
8. Tie a small bow out of the Marina Mist ribbon and adhere to the top left corner with glue dots.

Have fun using a different media other than just the stamped image.
