Welcome to the Springtacular Blog Hop

Welcome to the Springtacular Blog Hop
If you started at the beginning you should have just come from Jillian's blog ~ Princess and the Paper!

Coloring these daisies is SO MUCH FUN!  I am so thankful we connected with Lisa of Lisa Lara Originals!!! Her designs are adorable! This is from her Flutters & Flowers set.

For this card I wanted to try something new ~ so after coloring the flowers and grass with my Copic markers, I used the Ranger Embossing Pen, Sticky Embossing Powder then sprinkled on the Stickles Dry Glitter!  I love this soft look!  I also added it to the center of the 3D{ie} Bow.
The Banner {die}tails is stamped with Memento Angel Pink using the NEW Background Builder Vintage Floral stamp to give a tone on tone effect ~ I just LOVE that Vintage Floral Stamp too!!!
Layered it all together with AJVD Emerald Cut {die}mond die cuts!

These products were used to complete this card:

And for my next card . . . 
 Well the other day I had an EPIPHANY!  Our {die}luxe Jewelry Tags could make a Daisy!!!
So in to the craft room I went and how cute are these!!!
I started with our NEW Sunburst Swirls Background Builder Stamp, stamped in Versamark Dazzle ink to give it a tone on tone effect!  Then die cut 12 "petals" for the full flower and 6 "petals" each for the half flowers, connected them using a brad.  I embossed them with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder and then sanded. The Flower pot is from the Spellbinders™ Flower Pots die set.
I used Kraft paper and then went over it in Frayed Burlap Distress Stain.
The sentiment strip is from our Banner {die}tails set and sentiment from Flower Power!
