It's July 1st and that means it's time for a Papertrey Ink Sr Team challenge. Each month we dust off an older set and bring you some fresh inspiration. This month? Daydreamer. It's a pretty, classic floral set filled with possibilities.
I created a couple of new projects for you using the Daydreamer stamps and coordinating dies.
For my first card I combined some of the pretty blooms from the Daydreamer set along with the Shaker Shapes Circle die. I started by diecutting the Shaker Shapes: Circle from scrap paper and using it as a mask to sponge some Sweet Blush ink.
Then I added the diecut circle frame, popped up with some foam adhesive. I diecut and stamped several blooms and stems from Daydreamer using Berry Sorbet, Autumn Rose, and Sweet Blush inks, and clustered them around the circle. I double-stamped some of the larger blooms with the smaller coordinating blooms to add a bit of shading and interest. I stamped one of the sentiments from Daydreamer on the inside of the circle using Scarlet Jewel ink. The berries were stamped with Aqua Mist ink and I added a little dot of darker color to each using a Copic Marker.
Up next is a very flower-ful card that involves a simple masking technique using the Daydreamer dies. I started off by stamping the flowers in the foreground and worked my way backwards, masking off the blooms I had already stamped by covering them with diecuts cut from scrap paper. It was kind of fun to watch the field of flowers come to life!
I added a sentiment diecut using the Scripted Dies. I sponged some inks onto it for a rainbow effect and adhered it to a piece of tan foam which I cut using the same die.
I enjoyed breaking out this pretty floral set and just playing around. Want to see more fresh inspiration for the Daydreamer set? Be sure to hop around to the other girls...
