Daisy Delight

I love daisies!  They are so simple and beautiful.

For today's cards, I did two versions.  The first one I stamped the daisies with Pool Party, stamped off once, then punched them out and stamped the middle with Daffodil Delight.  Probably should have stamped them and then punched, but it really doesn't matter.  The stamps are Photopolymer, so easy to line them up.

Measurements for the layers:

Base Card - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Color Layer - 5 1/4" x 4" 
Top Layer - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a Happy Weekend!

  1. I always think of daisies as happy flowers. Not quite sure why. I am looking forward to getting this bundle. We can use lots of colors too for the daisy part. Mike planted something that is related to a daisy but it is a really bright red color. I hope they come up again this year. Last year the crab apple tree broke off a huge limb and landed on them destroying them. I love using punches too. A felt circle for the center will be fun to try for a bit of texture. Who knows I might get really industrious and take the center circle and embroider a bunch of little French knots on there for more texture! Anyway, the tulip festival is almost over. The last night time parade is at 8:30 and then basically that wraps it up! Poor Ted has been a nervous wreck with all the extra thousands of people and all the noise.

    1. OH yes, Happy Flowers for sure! Isn't that what Meg Ryan says about them in "You've Got Mail" when Tom Hanks brings them to her apartment? I think it was.

      I forgot about the Tulip Festival. That is another of my favorite flowers. I think I probably like a LOT of flowers actually, so I'm not picky! LOL Now if I could just get the hubbers to send me some. Funny how when you date a guy, he sends flowers or surprises, get married and you buy your own. LOL

      Tell Ted he can relax now. The flower friends are disbursing.

  2. Mike still buys me flowers. He likes to garden too. When we lived in Houston he had 84 rose plants at one time. Several beds and colors. We would give each other a rose bush for our birthdays etc. He grew them and I picked them! It worked for me!


    1. Oh my goodness! 84 rose plants. I have just a few and I love them. The heat kills them off sometimes, but I replace them and keep trying!


Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog and leave a comment. I always love hearing from you and I promise to comment back, so come back again!
