Tuesday is Terrific

Hello my crafty friends!   After a scorching hot week here in the Northeast, it has cooled off nicely.  FINALLY!  Whew.  Temperatures were feeling like 100 degrees outside.   Nothing to do but stay in and STAMP!    This Tuesday I’m back at it with the Tic Tac Toe Card Challenge!


Handmade greeting card -Stampin' Up! Daffodil Yellow card base, garden green mat, yellow daisy dsp layer. White embossed daisy sponged with daffodil yellow and faceted gem center.

Love Daisy Delight


Here is the graphic from Tic Tac Toe Challenge.   Can you guess which challenge I chose?  It’s the one on the right going down.

Daisy Details

Here’s a confession – I am not very good at using printed and patterned papers.  But the Delightful Daisy Suite from Stampin’ Up! is a winner and it’s so beautiful and easy to use.   This card really came together quickly.    The stitched shapes dies square watercolor paper has a light yellow wash then I stamped the splatter from Touches of Texture garden green right over the wash.   The daisy was stamped two times and embossed white; then I sponged yellow for some depth.  From the Sunshine Wishes thinlits dies, I cut the word love first in garden green.   It just wasn’t the punch I was hoping for so I cut it again in whisper white and sponged it yellow.   Next I used the fine tip glue and coated the whole word.   And that was the sunshine I was looking for!

The white embossing on the daisy with some light daffodil yellow sponging makes the flower really pop!
