Happy Spring Daisy
I was inspired by the temperatures we have been having here in Texas - they have been in the 70's! Spring is just around the corner so I decided to pull out my Looks Like Spring set. What better colors to use than So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral. I stamped the Linen Background using Chocolate Chip on the So Saffron Cardstock and on the Cameo Coral. The daisies were stamped using the rock'n'roll technique then handcut - wow, that was a chore - we definitely need a big punch for these flowers! lol I used a small circle punch and punched out some Cameo Coral cardstock for the center of the flowers (sponged a little chocolate chip on the edges). I also punched out some So Saffron circles and placed them on the flowers on the background - I think they look neat that way. All the layers are up on dimensionals. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Happy Everything. This was a fun card to make and definitely makes me wish for spring to get here. Well, I am off to do more stamping.......

All these 3D cards that you do are amazing. I sooooo want to try and make one myself. Hope it doesn't take me all day though. :) There's just so much detail and work in them I think.

Gorgeous card --I *love* LLS but never got it. Maybe because I knew I'd want to cut those darn flowers out!! LOL!! It was definitely worth it though --so beautiful!!

Hey Lady!!! What a gorgeous card. I love the color combo you used. To me, you're SUPERWOMAN!!! Great job as always. Hope you are having a great weekend. The hubby and I went out to dinner tonight (just the two of us, woo, hoo) and when we got out of the restaurant, it was snowing like crazy. We are on blizzard watch for tomorrow, YUCK! Hope you are enjoying your 70 degree weather...LOL! Talk to you soon.

beeeeeautiful! I love cutting out those flowers LOL... but a punch would be cool!

This is terrific...nice BG...I almost thought it was DP on my first glance!

This is just beautiful, Kendra! I can't believe you hand cut those daisies - I just don't have that kind of patience! LOL. Those saffron centers on the background flowers make this card ROCK!

Would you spare us in Michigan a few degrees? I hear ice hitting the house. At least I get to look at pretty flowers-these are gorgeous and my favorites anyways. WIsh it were June and they were peeking out near the deck.

What a gorgeous card! No wonder yours are so pretty - you put such a lot of great details into them. Yes those 70+ temps were nice, but that wind & dust yesterday were yuck! Hopefully the wind will quit today & we'll have a beautiful Sunday.

Another lovely card. Great colors, and I love the lay-out. TFS

Ohhhhh Awwwwww!!! I yike I yike!! Such purdy colors Kendra =)

I have a punch like this! Can't remember the name of the manufacturer, bit it's pink--if that helps. I'm wondering if I can cut a piece of fun foam with it and make my own co-ordinating stamp so that I can duplicate your card...keep up the good work!

Beautiful card! I love the color combo and the "shabby" look.

I also love your new blog banner. Did you design it yourself? And what about your cool logo? I would like to get a logo and a banner designed for my blog, but am photoshop illiterate. I need help! Any suggestions?

Oh super fabulous!!! Love it!
