Stamping Around the World Tutorial Blog Hop for July Daisy Lane

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World Tutorial Blog Hop for July.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe.  Together we make up a tutorial with 12 great projects.  We also have this hop using the same stamp sets we used in our part of the tutorial group.  That gives you even more projects!  You might have just come from Margriet's blog.  She has such great projects.

I used this Daisy Lane stamp set for my project for the tutorial.  Today I'm using the Daisy Lane stamp set and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I have a gift box and a matching card.  Here is my card.

SATW July Hop Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is 4 1/2 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and folded.  Use your Bone Folder to burnish.

The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  I used the Mossy Meadow paper with the leaves.

Use the Stitched Nested Label Dies for the focal point of the card.  Cut the Mossy Meadow stripe paper for this.  Now cut the next size up in Whisper White to make a frame look.  I didn't like the look of the two nested together.  I felt the white was a little too long, so I trimmed it a little.  Here's how.  Line up the die back on the label but just a little below the original cut on the end.  You can feel when the die fits into the original cuts on the side.  You might want to secure with a little washi tape.  Just run through your die cutting machine.  The other end extends beyond the die, so you don't really need to worry about it.  I probably only cut off about an 1/8 of an inch, but it did make a difference.  

For the flower, punch out 3 flowers from Whisper White using the Medium Daisy Punch.  Use your Bone Folder to carefully curl the petals up.  I used a glue dot to adhere the layers making sure to offset each layer from the others.  Add a Gold Faceted Gem to the center.  Punch 2 leaves using the Leaf Punch.  Pinch up the leaves to give a little texture.  Secure to the flower with glue dots.  Add the flower to the top left of the label.

For the tag, stamp the fern in Old Olive on a scrap of Whisper White.  I did stamp off.  Add the saying in Mossy Meadow.  Use the Perfect Parcels to cut out the tag.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add a bow of Linen Thread to the tag with a glue dot.

I also made a box to match the card using the Perfect Parcels Dies.  This box is not that easy to put together.  I have a video to show how I did it.


The belly band measured 3 x 7 3/4.  Score at 1 1/2, 2 7/8, 5, 6 3/8.  Use snail to secure.  

Add a length of the Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around the box.

The flower is made the same as the one on the card.  The tag in this picture uses the Parcels & Petals bundle.  I did change the tag using the Daisy Lane stamp set using the fern stamp and the word Smile.  The box below uses the Braided Linen Thread.
