Seize the Daisies!


Hello all... it's a Free for All Friday with a summer-like feel that's just as fresh as a daisy! Gerber Daisies that is! Just as the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers and at Flourishes -- we are watching the daisies sprout! Just take a trip to see all of our designers today and you're sure to be inspired as they show off their creations using our set Gerber Daisies! And, if you like what you see on their blogs, you should know that today and tomorrow only - you can add this set to your collection for 20% off! Just use the code DAISY at the time of check out!  

On to my creation... (I have a couple for you!) First one is one that actually was a mom's day creation that my dear mother got this year for her special day!


I used scraps frommy scrap bin for this creation and so I am so sorry, I can't tell you what these decorative papers are. I did stamp the Gerber Daisy on the blue decorative paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and using Copic Markers, colored them up slightly. I used these collections....


As for the doodads on the card, I used THIS fun May Arts green gingham ruffle, white cotton ribbon and THESE fun rhinestones from Prima. The sentiment is from the Motherly Love stamp set and was stamped on a piece of Flourishes Classic White that was die cut thanks to a Spellbinders Classic Circle die and matted on a shape cut and embossed thanks to a Beaded Circle Nestabilities Die.

For my second creation, I wanted to share a mom's day card that I did last year and was actually published as an online extra for Paper Creations Magazine. Here's a peek....

And for the instructions, all you need to do is click HERE for a full instruction sheet!

  Thanks for stopping by! We hope you have a fun-filled, relaxing and crafty weekend ahead!

Both so beautifully unique Julie! I love how dreamy and soft the blues are...and I like how you used the sentiment in the layout as the focal point.

And the pub card looks like an antique photo...gorgeous!

Both are amazing, Julie! I love the more spring look of the first and a little more vintage on the second. I need to take the time to start submitting to magazines. I am so bad. :)

Julie these are both beautiful. Your first one is so country and sweet, I bet your mom loved it. The second one has a vintage or antique feel to it. Beautiful cards.
