I have three cards for your inspiration today.  I thought it would be fun to show three different techniques and ways to use the Daisy Frame die.

Card 1:  You Make Me Smile 
IO stamp/die links below:
Daisy Frame DIE854-Y
Smile DIE378-E
Smile Clear Stamp Set MC665

I layered a green A2 card with a white panel.  I die cut the Daisy Frame  die from yellow and from white card stock.  I layered the white pieces inside the petals of the yellow die cut.  I watercolored the white petals with a Tombow marker and Dove blender pen.  I attached the piece to the card front. 
I die cut the Smile word from yellow, and adhered it to a white rectangle scrap.  

I added that to the card with foam tape, and added the You Make Me verse from the Smile Clear Stamp Set.  I attached that, and added a yellow and white twine bow.

I added the white die cut Daisy Frame to yellow card stock, trimmed it close, and adhered it inside the card.

Card 2:  Hello Friend

Daisy Frame DIE854-Y
Hello DIE809-G
You're The Best C21211
Hello Clear Set MC663

I started by die cutting the Daisy Frame from white card stock.  I removed the petal centers.  I water colored onto a scrap panel of white card stock, cut to fit the frame.  When that dried, I adhered the die cut Daisy Frame to it.
I attached it to a white A2 card front.

I die cut the Hello from white, and used my blending brushes to add ink to it in ombre fashion.  I attached it to the card.  I stamped the Friend from the Hello Clear Set.

Some Studio Katia 3mm crystal clear sequins add embellishment.

I brushed color through the negative of the die cut, then stamped the You're The Best verse.
Card 3:  Thank You Daisy

Daisy Frame DIE854-Y
Fred Said Stamp Set WP915
Pencil Favor Box 

I die cut the Daisy Frame from white card stock, and watercolored it with distress inks in fall colors.  When dry, I attached it to a slightly larger black card stock panel.

I created a background panel onto matte finish card stock.  I used an acrylic brayer, and distress inks.  I rolled the brayer into the ink pad, then onto the panel, spritzing with water as I went.  I repeated it with three or four colors.  I added some gold perfect pearls to it.  When it was dry, I attached the panel to a white A2 card front.  I added the Daisy Frame panel to the card front.

I embossed the Thank you from the Fred Said stamp set with Adirondack Butterscotch embossing powder, onto some black card stock, the die cut it with a die from the Pencil Favor Box.  I used the front panel extra piece form the box set.  It was too long for the verse, so I die cut the full panel, then inserted the die cut back into the die, only moved it down until it was the length I wanted, then ran it through again, cutting it off shorter.  I love doing this and getting extra miles from my dies!  I attached this panel to the card with foam tape.

I hope you like my three different cards and techniques using the same basic die.  For more inspiration, be sure to visit Susan Wymer's blog for her amazing projects.  Here are links to the other designer's blogs:
