Spring Flowers – Daisy

Hi there. A new challenge is beginning at Cardz 4 Galz and this time the theme is ‘Spring Flowers’. Here is my card:

I used the Altenew ‘Spring Daisy‘ stamp set and stamped the flowers in two shades of grey, and the leaves in a grey outline, and green inside layer.

I didn’t add a central colour to the flowers, as I liked the two colour combination here.

Once I had used the matching dies to cut them out, I played with the layout a little, adding and taking away several times, then adhered the flowers with 3D gel, the leaves with glue, and some of the buds with dimensionals.

I took a sentiment from a Stampin Up stamp set for the top right corner….. then went to my stash of Tonic Nuvo Crystals Drops – I think I need an intervention here – I just can’t stop using them………………..

And if they weren’t enough – I went and added some bling with some sequins:

Well – who doesn’t like a little bling? The sequins are actually greener than they appear in the pictures, and the drops a little less green than they appear in the pictures……….

I hope you can come and join us and show us your ‘spring flowers’ – I look forward to seeing what you create, and will hopefully see there in our gallery. xx

Hello there. I have another card to share, using the Altenew ‘Rosy Outlook’ stamp and die set:

I stamped the flowers using Altenew inks, but for the fourth layer of the large rose I heat embossed in gold. The leaves I stamped the first two layers in green, then heat embossed the third layer in gold too.

The sentiment is from a Stampin Up stamp set, again heat embossed in gold, then doing a little juggling and partial die-cutting, I managed to cut the length to size, adding a little ‘flag’ ending to it.

I used Altenew ‘Dotted Swirls Debossing cover die’ for the background, layered with some black card stock – and there we have it.
