Daisies, daisies, daisies…

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a terrific Thursday!! Brenda, here with you today. It’s no secret that I LOVE daisies!! In fact, my kitchen and dining room are decorated with daisies. It’s such a happy flower, what’s not to love?

I have two daisy cards to share with you today. The first one uses the Large Florals: Daisy layering stamp.

Daisies,-Daisies,-Daisies-1I started by creating the background. I used watercolor paper to cut the 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate Die, then watercolored it in shades of green. I trimmed the outside away and cut a panel of blue cardstock to adhere it to. The sentiment, from Loose Roses, was stamped with Versamark ink and white heat embossed. The Large Florals: Daisy was stamped twice with Beach Blondie, Lemon Drop & Amber Citrine, using Found Topaz and Spiced Chai for the centers. Soft Garden & Deep Emerald were used for the leaves. The daisies were then cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to opposite corners of the panel with foam adhesive. After trimming away the parts that hung off the panel, it was adhered to a yellow panel that was cut slightly larger. Glass Slippers Sequins add a little sparkle.

My second card uses the Coming Up Daisies set…

Daisies,-Daisies,-Daisies-4

The Coming Up Daisies image was stamped onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink and colored with Copic markers, adding some additional details and depth with colored pencils. I cut the image with the Coordinating Dies, then started on the background. I watercolored a panel of watercolor paper with soft blues and greens, then set that aside to dry. I stamped the Buildable Woodgrain with Found Topaz and Dark Roast inks onto kraft cardstock. I trimmed it into strips, cut one end into a point, then ink blended Dark Roast onto the edges. I adhered the strips onto the watercolored panel to resemble a picket fence, trimming off the parts that hung off the panel. The daisy die-cut was adhered to the left with foam adhesive, also trimming the parts that hung off the edge. A butterly from Beautiful Butterflies 3 was also stamped with Caviar Ink and colored with Copics, before cutting with the Coordinating Die. The sentiment is also from the Coming Up Daisies set and was stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. A combination of Mint Sugar, Misty Mint and Summer Skies Couture Mixes was the perfect finishing touch.
