Hello crafty friends. I’ve had a quick play today with a brand new set of stamps from the fabulous Julie Hickey – the ‘daisy buttons’ set. I’ve only just got them, but I think you’ll be seeing a lot more of them over the next few weeks. This one is sat firmly in my CAS comfort zone – I took inspiration from the photo at Just Add Ink, together with the right hand diagonal of green/colouring/button from TicTacToe‘s grid. I know there isn’t an actual button on this card, but given the name of the stamp set I’m hoping that will count!
I started by stamping the larger ‘button’ from the set onto a square of white card in ‘rustic wilderness’ Distress Oxide and then heat embossed it with clear powder.
I then coloured in the leaves and the centres of the flowers with a green pencil. I cut a mask using one of Julie’s circle dies, covered the image and brushed ‘rustic wilderness’ around it.
I finished by stamping one fo the sentiments from the set, again in ‘rustic wilderness’ and heat embossed it with the clear powder. I added a few of the little triplet dots, ran a black Sharpie around the edge of the card and attached it to a 5×5 card blank.
Thanks for dropping in. I’ve been at the funeral of a friend’s mum this afternoon – there seem to have been too many of these lately, but I suspect that probably reflects my age!
