Effie has designed a new layering floral stamp set. This time it's Fresh Cut Daisies! A Coordinating Outlines set for the Fresh Cut Daisies is also available. There is a large version of one of the daisy images as a separate stamp set, Large Florals: Daisy. Coming Up Daisies is a cluster of some pretty daisies. For some wintery greetings we have the Winter Cardinal set. Using Buildable Woodgrain you can create your own woodgrain design. How unique is that?! Riotous Wildflowers is a background stamp filled with gorgeous floral image outlines. It's great for some relaxing coloring! Seriously Amazing is a sentiment set in a big and bold font.

I have five cards to share with you today! Lots to say and many pics:)! So let's get starated! 

The first card is featuring Riotous Wildflowers and Bold Amazing Greeting Word Plate Dies. 



I stamped Riotous Wildflowers on a Bristol smooth panel in a light ink and colored it using Arteza brush pens. I've been experimenting with various color combinations recently and here I tried purple and teal together. I added yellow on the flower centers and lightly on the background too. Once done with coloring I cut the sentiment using Bold Amazing Greeting Word Plate Dies from the colored panel and from some purple fun foam. I added thin teal glitter tape on the top and bottom of the cardbase and adheared the panel onto it. I then mounted the sentiment raised on top of the purple foam die cuts. 


To add some shine I covered the die cut sentiment with shimmer Pico embellisher and scattered fine glitter on it before it dried. Some clear Dew Drops were my finishing touch.


Next is a card made with Coming Up Daisies and Buildable Woodgrain.


To create my own woodgrain pattern I stamped the elements of the Buildable Woodgrain set in Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz. The daisies of  Coming Up Daisies were stamped in Caviar hybrid ink and colored using Copic markers. I coated the daisies with WOS clear glitter pen and added shine on the flower centers using clear glitter glaze pen and yellow glaze pen. I cut the right side of the panel along the outline of the image. 
I stamped the sentiment from Large Florals: Daisy in Noir on the woodgrain panel and clear heat embossed it. I then glued the panel on the cardbase and foam mounted the floral panel on it. 
To finish off I scattered some sequins from Pink Blossoms and Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix. These sparkling sequins are so pretty! 


My third card for today is featuring  Large Florals: Daisy set. It is actually a layering stamp but I used the third layer as my guide and watercolored the gorgeous daisy flower. 


To start off I stamped the third layer of the daisy in Soft Orchid and the second layer of the leaves in Soft Garden on a watercolor paper and watercolored the image. I added some golden dots on the flower center using gold Pico embellisher. The sentiment is from Peony Notes set, which is one of our gift with purchase items. Peony Notes bundle includes various sentiments in big scripty font and I love them! I trimmed down the panel and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The finishing touch on this card were some sequins from Pink Blossoms and Glass Slippers


As we're in the midway of the winter this Winter Cardinal set could be a great addition to create some winter greeting cards. 


This pretty cardinal is a design, Effie once hand carved. The delicate branch pattern in the cardinal image makes it so unique. To start off I stamped the bird in Lipstick Red and added some darker shade by dabbing Pink Derby on some area on the stamp using a finger dauber. I stamped the wing and tail partial stamp in Spiced Chai, the area between eye and beak in Noir.  I colored his legs using brown sharpie pen and the eye with a black glaze pen and a white gel pen. I then clear heat embossed the whole bird again. After I masked the cardinal I gold heat embossed the branch. I added watercolor wash on the background in payne's gray and gold. Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment from Winter Cardinal set in Noir and clear heat embossed it. I trimmed down the panel slightly and mounted it on a dark red cardbase on the border of which I adhered thin strip of Adhesive Foil Paper Gold. To finish off I added Medallion Gold sequins.



The last card for today is showing Riotous Wildflowers again, in red, navy and silver! I love this stamp. There is also coordinating dies for the floral clusters of this!!! How awesome is that! 



I started by heat embossing the image in silver on a Bristol smooth panel. I then colored the flowers using Color Burst powders. I quite saturated the flowers with the pigments to have the intense colors.
For the silver leaves I used pearl colors by Fine Tec.


The sentiment is from Peony Notes. I stamped it in True Navy on a white cardstock and clear heat embossed it. As I didn't want to cover the beautiful florals I fussy cut the sentiment. To add some more interest I added a silver strip made using Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Silver and a thin navy strip underneath the sentiment. I finished off the card by adding some clear Dew Drops.

I love the way you've just colored the tips of the daisies. With that woodgrain background it looks almost like they are growing up the side of a fence.

Wonderful job on all of your cards!
