A Bright Daisy Card For You

Happy Monday! We had rain overnight and the sun came out in the afternoon - a beautiful day in Canberra! 

After watching Emma Goddard's Facebook Live this morning I was inspired to case her design with some tweaks. This is my card for today:

I'm really loving the daisy punches! I've used both punches to create the daisy, with a clear faceted gem in the centre coloured with the Daffodil Delight marker. 

There are three of each daisy, joined together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I've used the Seaside Spray marker to add a little colour to the daisy's centre and tips of the flower at the back. 

I've added some Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon instead of leaves and a pearlised doily.

The background is watercoloured in Melon Mambo, Daffodil delight, Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron on watercolour paper. Tip: let the ink dry (or use a heat gun to dry it) before adhering the background to the card. The card base is Mint Macaron cardstock.

The sentiment is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set. I've used Melon Mambo and clear embossing powder to make it bright. The sentiment is on thick whisper white cardstock and is cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

Both the daisy and the sentiment are attached using Stampin' Dimensionals to give them more of a 3D effect.

Until next time, happy crafting!


More Daisies

I have another daisy card to share with you today:

The daisies are much shinier in real life. I've stamped them in Versamark and then heat embossed them using white embossing powder, giving them texture and shine. The centres are coloured with a Mango Melody marker. I used the daisy punch to cut the flowers out. 

Tip: using thick whisper white cardstock makes it easier to curl the petals a little with your fingers or a bone folder without creasing them. 

The background is from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (DSP) which had small white daisies in it.

The ribbon and bow is Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon - I've cut the ribbon so I could use the edge only. If you cut it carefully it won't fray. I'll use the other side another time.

The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss to match the DSP on thick whisper white cardstock. I've shortened the Classic Label punch die cut to fit the sentiment using scissors. 

Stampin' Dimensionals lift the sentiment and two of the daisies.

The stamp set and punch below were used to make this card:
