Daisy Delight flowers in a wood crate

Welcome to my blog post today.  I am sharing a card we made recently using the ever so popular Daisy Delight stamp set and co-ordinating flower punch. The inspiration for the card came from Julia Quinn and you can find her website HERE.

The background was created by randomly stamping the large and small daisy flowers and the small three dashes stamp all over three pieces of whisper white card in Daffodil Delight ink and Old Olive ink. This was layered onto the Old Olive card stock to form the base of the Z-card.

The fun wood crate framelits and the wood textures designer series stack were used to create a flower box for the daisies.

10 Daisies were stamped in Daffodil Delight ink on co-ordinating card and punched out. Groups of Two daisies were glued together to form 5 flowers. We used the new Leaf punch from the Painted Harvest bundle to punch out some old olive cardstock leaves. 

The whole card folds flat and is easily placed in a standard C6 envelope for posting.

Embossing Paste Technique class

A few weeks ago I ran a class on a Saturday afternoon using the Embossing Paste.

We made the following 5 cards using a variety of different techniques.

Masking tape was fixed to top and bottom of a piece of white card.  The centre section was randomly sponged with Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink.  Embossing paste was then spread through one of the masks and the mask was removed carefully. Dazzling diamond glitter was sprinkled over the top and left to dry.

Embossing paste was spread through one of the masks, then carefully removed and cherry cobbler embossing powder sprinkled on top and heat embossed .

Embossing paste spread through the cloud mask and left to dry

Embossing paste spread through the mask, carefully remove the mask and leave to dry. Once dry place the mask back over the design in the correct place and sponge through in Peek-a-boo peach and sweetsugar plum inks

Embossing paste mixed with a couple of drops of Smoky slate ink and spread through the brick wall mask and leave to dry.

These are just a few ideas of using the embossing paste, I am sure there are lots of other techniques waiting to be discovered. It is a fabulous accent for using in projects.
