Upsy Daisy


I had been thinking about this color combinaton and this stamp all afternoon while I was out. I was wearing a shirt today with these colors and that was my inspiration...Pacific Point, black, and white. I also used this for another Featured Stamper challenge (see my Tilda card below this one for my first FS challenge today). As I was pulling this card together, I checked out Jessie's gallery again and chose this card to case. I had to change it a bit to fit my image. I don't know if you can see it, but the black band on the right is crimped...yes, crimped! (Click on the pic to get a better view of it.) Remember that tool that's gathering dust in the bottom of your drawer (at least that's where I found mine!)? Well, that's one of the things I liked about her card...the chance to use something I hadn't used in a while that gives the card texture. I started by embossing this stamp from SU's new Upsy Daisy in black ep. It was just screaming to be embossed in black! I paired it with the new Pacific Point dp and black and Pacific Point cardstock. The crystal brad in the center of the flowers is from SU's ice circles rhinestone brads and is a very good match for Pacific Point! Here's the inside of the card. I left it blank so I can use it for any occasion, however I did stamp one of the stamps from Pocket Silhouettes in the corner because it looked like it went with the image on the front. Thanks for stopping by and please take a look at my first Tilda in the previous post!
