Blue Flowers

>> Thursday, May 11, 2017


You ever have one of those stamping nights where you've made several elements to a card that individually all look great but when you put them all together you think "eh"?  Such was my life this past Monday.  I finally had to walk away till Tuesday and after another frustrating hour I figured it out - take all the pieces and make 2 cards!

My first card uses the yellow plaid I made using our Woven Plaid as well as a white frame and the Medium Daisy Bloom that I stamped in black ink and colored in blue.  I had to add the green Happy Birthday layer and attach it all to a folded green card.

For my 2nd card I used a background that I stamped with our Medium Daisy Bloom using blue ink and colored with blue and yellow markers.  I added the white brads and then the white circle that I stamped with our Happy Mother's Day greeting using blue ink.  I layered both on bright green and since it still needed something, I used my old, but never used paper bow die cut in bright yellow.

I still have a few bits and pieces that didn't work for either of these cards, but I'm sure they'll make an appearance on another card soon ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sue, great use of that daisy image (which is one of my fave). I have the days like you are talking about all the time!!! Both cards are fun, but that second one is my fave. Your coloring on it is fabulous and that yellow bg totally makes the flowers pop. Well done. Hugz
