Paper Daisies

It seems that paper flowers are all the rage right now. I just had to try some myself. They are so easy using the Big Shot and the Bigz Flower Daisies #2 Die.

I cut the daisies with Whisper White and Daffodil Delight Cardstock, alternated the layers and added an Antique Brad for the center to create this one. The patterned paper is one of the prints from the Paisley Petals DSP from the Spring is Blossoming promotion that will be ending in just a couple of days. That and the Four Frames Stamp Set will be available in the new 2011/2012 Idea Book & Catalog when it releases in July, but as a sneak preview, you can get them now! Order both of these exciting new products with a $20 purchase, or get them Free when you host a qualifying workshop. After April 30, both of these products won't be available again until July 1. Get yours today!

It's hard to see in the picture, but I've added a bit of Frost White Shimmer Paint to the bird and the daisy. For the bird, I used my Aqua Painter to paint his belly. To add it to the daisy, I mixed a few drops to a mister bottle half full of alcohol. Then just spritz the flower. This adds a fun sheen to any project!

The word Enjoy is from the You're a Gem Stamp Set and is stamped in Marina Mist Classic Ink.

Paisley Petals

Here's the card I promised using the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper and Four Frames Stamp Set. I absolutely Love both of these items, and am thrilled that they will be available in the new 2011/2012 Idea Book & Catalog!

If you love them too, you don't have to wait until July to get them. During the month of April, just place a small $20 order and you can order these too! Do you Love Free? Just Host a qualifying workshop in April, and both of these items can be yours for Free!

For this card, I've used the coordinating Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Seam Binding Ribbon. The Four Frames Stamp Set coordinates with the Designer Label Punch. There are four different designs that are all just adorable! To mat the frame, I punched out a Cherry Cobbler Designer Label, cut it in half, and then just layered it on the top & bottom half of the frame. I pulled a single thread to gather up the ribbon, adhered it with Sticky Strip, and added some Basic Pearls for the finishing touch.

I have another card just like this but in another color combination for tomorrow. Contact me to place an order or book your Workshop, or place your order online anytime from the comfort and convenience of your own home!
