BSS IDEA - A bunch of Daisies

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

I planted two pots of daisies in my gardens this summer,
and at the beginning, they bloomed over and over.  Since
it has been so hot for so many days on end despite keeping them
watered, they have kinda fizzled out. 

I bought this set of stamps with the daisy bunch awhile back, and
thought I would make this weeks card with it.

For some reason, yellow and daisies always seem to
brighten up your day.

Stamps - Stampendous Clear Stamps -Daisy Thanks
This set includes the sentiment, the butterfly and
the daisies, plus a couple little lady bugs and
a swirl stamp.

Yellow card stock (card base is 51/2 x 4 1/4)
Yellow embossed mat is 51/4 x 4
White embossed mat with daisies is 31 /4 x 4 3/4
Embossing folders - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
We  R memory Keepers Next Level, Quilted
Gingham ribbon
Yellow Stickles

I stamped the daisies with Versafine Onyx ink and heat
embossed with clear embossing powder, twice, once centered
on the white 3 1/4x4 3/4 inch mat (the very edges of the leaves
 on either side will stamp off the paper, that's the plan, so that
 when you add the fussy cut piece over top of it the leaves will hang
 over the edge of the mat.) and again on a scrap piece
of white card stock, along with the butterfly to fussy cut out.

I then colored with copics.  Then I cut out the pieces that
were stamped on the scrap piece. Then I ran a black marker
around the edges to finish them off.

I ran the mat with the daisies stamped on it through the
Swiss Embossing folder. Tie a bow across the bottom
of the mat.

I ran the yellow mat through the Quilted embossing folder.

I outlined each flower center and each leaf with a stylus
being careful not to puncture the paper. I then turned the
stamped ,colored, and cut out image over and rubbed
the centers and leaves with the stylus lightly in a circular motion
on a piece of thin foam.
This raises the centers and shapes the leaves.

Using pop dots in the center of the flowers, I attached the cut
out flowers over the one you stamped 
and ran through the swiss dot EF.  

Adhere the white mat to the Quilted mat.  Then attach  that
to the card base.  Add the butterfly and put some Stickles on her.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.  Until later.......
