So many things come to mind when I see daisies. Of course, songs and plucking daisy petals off one at a time saying, "he loves me, he loves me not" and trying to make it land just right. And I always think of Doris Day for some reason! Do daisies bring different things to your mind? Another of the cards we made at class last week is this one, featuring the Daisy Delight bundle.
We used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this one in the background. Can you see it? Theres a piece that serves as the foundation for the card in the very back, kind of like a tabletop. The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (officially all gone as of today) was added over the Wood Textures DSP with dimensionals to raise it up a bit. We stamped the jar onto a Window Sheet with Staz On ink and also the Hello sentiment and set it aside to let it dry. We didn't want any smearing when die cutting it out with the medium sized jar in Everyday Jars Framelits. Beforehand, I had cut all the stems for the jar from Garden Green card stock to which some Adhesive Sheet had been added so that they could be attached to the card easily. We used touches of Multi-Purpose Glue along the edge of the jar in strategic places behind those stamped lines and it was attached across the raised layers. The daisies are so easy to make with the daisy punch. We layered two Daffodil Delight card stock daisies and two that had been stamped with Daffodil Delight ink first. Of course, any cute arrangement needs a cute bow! All the Night of Navy Gingham bows were pre-tied by me for easy attachment to the jar with a glue dot. I'm not pulling the petals off these daisies!
Inside the card we used more stamps from Daisy Delight.
I'm happy this set is not retiring, aren't you? It's just so delightful! I'm hoping to get back out on the road today and I'm talking about walking! I'm going to have to check the wind out first because it's been blowing about 20 mph the past two days and all that pollen is all over. One thing or another, like pollen, has kept me inside. I feel bad for my dog, who always walked with me, as he has developed a hip issue and I can't take him along. I have to sneak out of the house because when he sees my tennis shoes come out of the closet he is ready to go. :( I have been exercising but I miss being out pounding the pavement and seeing what's going on from another perspective. I hope all of you have a great day! - Dawn
