there is no doubt....card #3 :)

Hi again!

I'll get straight to the card shall I?


I started with another section of that Mister Hueys-afied watercolour paper, and decided to diecut the GORGEOUS Fresh Daisies die from Simon Says Stamp. LOVE.

Then I decided to diecut it another 8 times from white cardstock, so I could make the image sit raised up from the cardbase :)

I CAAAAREFULLY adhered all the levels together, then added the original piece (with the colour on it) to the top. I added some stickles, 'cause I can't help myself.

shiny :)


see how raised up it is?! Looks like a store-bought embellishment :)

Next I heat embossed the sentiment from Ali Edwards' set Loving Words--one of my faves :)

I then added the piece to the cardbase, before adhering the (now 3-dimensional) daisies diecut. 

I think this card would work really well as a wedding card, sympathy card, or just about anything. I'm so in love with the colours!

OK that's it for me! I'm off to get some couch-time in before bed, I've spent the entire day cleaning and I'm pooped!

See you again soon!

I LOVE IT!! Wow, the colors are really so rich looking.
I have one based on one of Kristina MACM(I think) that I am working on that will use that die. I love the 'stacking' idea.
Thanks for sharing your creation.

You're on a roll chickadee! Love the colors and sparkle. No way in a million years would I have attempted to A) cut that flower out 9 times and B) adhere the stinkin' thing together!
