The new Sunshine Daisy Stems can create the look of patient paper-piecing or "coloring inside the lines."  This is a lot easier!   Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a vellum back-painting technique - instead of attaching many tiny petals or trying to stay inside the lines.  MemoryBoxSunshineDaisyStems, MemoryBoxAutumnFairyJewels, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxWatercolorPaper, MemoryBoxPoshHelloFoilPlateAndDie, FlowerDiecuts, HotFoiling, FoiledCards, HotFoilAndDiecut, HandmadeCards, DIYCards, VellumCards, InkBlendedBackgrounds, JeanOkimoto, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Attach a large piece of doublestick tape to white cardstock - Couture Creations tape was used here.  The taped side is the backside and the cardstock is the front.  Cut the 'open' Sunshine Daisy Stems die (shown on the left) three times from the front.  Remove the offcuts and save just the delicate outlines.

Cut heavy white vellum with the 3-¾" x 2-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach the three cardstock Daisy Stems to the vellum - the double-stick tape makes it quick and easy. Press Distress Oxides onto an acrylic block and paint the petals from the backside of the vellum - don't add any water.   Ink colors used here are dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, abandoned coral and kitsch flamingo.

Blend abandoned coral, kitsch flamingo and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxides on the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Spray it with a light spritz of water, then let it dry. Trim it with the 3-¼" x 2" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach narrow strips of double-stick tape to the backside of the several painted vellum petals  and attach the vellum to the watercolor paper.  The tape won't show through the painted petals.

Foil black cardstock with gold foil and the Posh Hello Hot Foil Plate.  Diecut it.

Attach the diecuts to a pink A-2 card.  Add the orange Autumn Fairy Jewels.  

Sunshine Daisy Stems is very versatile - diecut stencils or pressure-emboss with it too. Or simply diecut and layer the blossoms for spring or summer cards.

Thanks for visiting  - hope you're enjoying the May Collection ideas from our Design Team!
