It has been a week! Good news is that I am still posting every day (day 19)! It has been challenging coming up with something new to share especially since I have not been feeling especially creative. I continue to try new things to jump start my creativity. Yesterday I went through my bin and folder of samples and templates and pulled out some fun folds. Today's card is a result of that activity.
When you saw the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP, did this design with the daisy remind you of either the Daisy Lane set or the Daisy Delight set? Here I paired it with the Daisy Lane set. I punched out 2 daisies using the Medium Daisy punch, stamped the stem image in Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock and yes, fussy cut it out.
Are you wondering what color I used for the center of the daisy? Doesn't it look like the center of the daisy on the DSP? I inked up a scrap piece of So Saffron cardstock with So Saffron ink, inked it with VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with a mix of Clear Embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and then heat embossed it. Kind of fun and I was happy with how close it looked to the DSP.
This card is one I will be sending as part of my Host Code Thank you gift. When you use the host code (HVP2CMS2) in April and place a $40 online order, I will send you 2 completed cards and a card kit to make each of those cards. Since I cannot send out stamped images, the card kit will contain the cardstock, DSP, embellishments, punched elements, and you will need to use your own stamps for the sentiment. The second card is a surprise.
Let me know if you have any questions about how to shop online with me. Thanks for stopping by and see ya tomorrow!
