Tips for Making Pretty Flowers with the Pansy Punch

Remember how I told you on Monday that the Daisy Punch was now available? Well it’s sold out again!! Apparently this is the most popular punch Stampin’ Up! has had in the last 5 years and demand has greatly exceeded supply.

If you missed out on the Daisy punch again, don’t worry, it will be back as soon as they can get more made. In the meantime, there’s lots you can do with other flower punches!

Here’s a card I made with the new Delightful Daisy paper and the Pansy Punch

Pansy Card with Delightful Daisy Designer Series PaperCalypso Coral card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Floral Paper: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White: 1″ x 4″

To give your punched flowers more “POP”, sponge lightly over the entire flower and a little heavier over the edges. I usually use the same color ink as the card stock I used to punch out my flower.

There are so many different ways to add an interesting center to your flower! These faceted gems are fun but they do make the card a bit bulky and more difficult to mail. You could also punch out a card stock circle or use a flatter enamel shape in the middle. I bet you can come up with lots of other creative ideas too!!

If you’ve got a flower punch, grab it and see what you can make. Of course you can do the same thing with your flower dies as well.

Happy Stamping!

    I’m one of those who’s waiting for the Daisy Punch to be restocked. I checked on Pinterest for flowers made with punches to take up the slack for now, and will be using some of those techniques. I love it when DSP can do so much of the work for me. I have some pre-cut pieces and pre-folded cards in the same color way on hand for those last minute cards I need. By the way, I’m wondering what the other popular punch was from 5 years ago. Inquiring minds want to know…. 😉
