Punch It Out | Be Inspired Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome. Here we are again, getting towards the end of another month and time for the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. Is it just me, or is this year just flying along? This month the Be Inspired team are playing with punches and when it comes to punches my absolute favourite go-to is without a doubt the Medium Daisy punch.

Given the focus of this card was to use punches I wanted the daisies to be the focal point and kept the rest of the card fairly simple. The sentiment panel is actually a card from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More card pack. The teeny tiny daisies tie in with the larger flowers and I love the bright pop of Magenta Madness in the sentiment. I added some texture to the Misty Moonlight background by embossing it with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

One of the things I love about the Medium Daisy punch is that the daisies can easily be punch out of plain cardstock and still look great, however to add a little extra detail I chose to stamp and heat emboss the daisies in white with the Daisy Lane stamp set. I also added some Just Jade leaves from the Sunflower Dies.

Thanks for joining me today Next up in the hop is my lovely friend Janneke Dijkstra de Jong. I can wait to see what she has "punched out" for us.
