I really must try and remember to make sure my blog posts everyday! I was so disappointed yesterday afternoon when I realised my post for Monday, although scheduled, failed to post! Today I’m sharing the cards I made with the kits Natalie sent me so I could take part in the Sale-a-bration celebration. Natalie left it to each of us who took part to decide which stampset we used. I chose Daisy Lane which will be in the new catalogue, and goes with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.In the new set there is a stamp that fits the the Large Daisy Punch, and there’s also a smaller daisy stamp that fits the new Medium Daisy Punch. I wonder if this means that there is going to be a Small Daisy Punch? I doubt it but it would be nice! Can you imagine what a fabulously layered daisy we’d be able to make with three different sizes?In our kits, Natalie had supplied card bases and cardstock to make five cards. She had also included one sheet in each of the five colours of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP). I watched Natalie’s Facebook Live video which showed how she made four of the cards – she didn’t make one with the Lemon Lime Twist DSP. She left that for us to come upwith our own design……………..which I haven’t done yet! Today, I’m sharing the Daffodil Delight Card. I used the same flower on three out of the four cards, and used the same painting technique on them all. That is, I used the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and painted all over the flower. Next I took the Dark Stampin’ Blend and painted the top half of the petals, and the centre. Then I fussy cut the flower. I die cut a Whisper White CS circle using with a Stitched Shape Framelits Die. Next I adhered the flower in the centre of the circle using Dimensionals. I punched out a Daffodil Delight Cardstock (CS) circle using the Starburst Punch, and adhered the Whisper White CS circle on top. Next I fish-tailed a 1″ wide strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper, and adhered it onto the Gingham Gala DSP. Then I used Dimensionals to adhere the image (not quite) in the centre! The sentiment is two sentiments from the stamp set stamped together. I think they compliment each other beautifully. Inside the card I stamped and painted another image of the flower in the bottom right hand corner.
This is a simple design, but it makes a very attractive card! I finished it off by adding three large Basic Rhinestones between the two sentiments. That’s it from me today. I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.
