CCMC197 – Daisies

Today it is time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have a color challenge for you today.  Grab your stamps and play along!

 

Of course, I only used one little stamp on mine!  Otherwise, I pulled out my dusty Daisy #2 Die.  For some reason I hadn't played with it for a while and it was needing some love!  And, I love blue daisies…I think they are so happy!

 

 

 

My card has a base of Whisper White.  I layered on Certainly Celery cardstock along the bottom, but can you see how I used the Simply Scored Tool to make the lines under the flowers?  I thought they resembled the stems, don't you?  Of course, I needed a few leaves.  I fudged a little with the ribbon color…Pear Pizzazz Scallop Dot Ribbon wrapped with Lucky Limeade Bakers' Twine to gather the centers.  Then I adhered them with mini glue dots.

 

I made two sets of the smallest Daisy die out of Marina Mist cardstock.  I punched 1/2" Circles of Whisper White, then added the Concord Crush Glimmer Brads inside.  Those are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and placed on the front.  Finally, I added the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Concord Crush ink along the top.

 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Play along for a chance to be featured in our Top 3 for the week!  We love to see what you do using Stampin' Up!'s wonderful products!
