Watercolour Sneak Peak Daisies for JAI#359 and SUO#174

I am loving the new Daisy Delights stamp set which will be available June 1. As well as the large daisy image there are some sweet smaller images which make a nice posy. The challenge at Stampin' Up! Only this week is to use watercolouring, and the inspiration picture from Just Add Ink is a striking flower so I have used both as my inspiration for this card. I stamped the daisies onto scrap paper and cut them out, for the top daisy in each stem I have cut between the petals and curled them a little to make the flower fuller.

I also fussy cut a few little leaves ! There are a couple of other new products on these cards- the gorgeous mini chevron ribbon and the glitter enamel dots

Of course you don;t have to do any fussy cutting- simple stamping is perfect with this 2 step image- and being photopolymer it is very easy to line up the two images.

I'll have a few more posy cards to show you soon,

Thanks for looking,  I also have lots more watercolouring cards which you can find using the search bar at the right side of the page, as well as Watercolour paper I love the Watercolour look from clear block stamping (or smooshing!) on Shimmery White, you might like the ones here. and here.

and remember

"don't just post online, 
post something pretty!"



  1. Both of your cards are gorgeous, Liz! I love the soft and flowing background on your first card and your fussy cut flowers are a gorgeous centrepiece. And the way vibrant colours of your second card highlight your rich blooms on the second is just as lovely. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

Envelope Dies perfect for an Acetate Tent card and some new DSP

After creating yesterday's cards I was on a roll and created this one using the beautiful Gilded Autumn DSP and the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  I really love the sentiments in this set.  It is such a simple design and easy to create. You can find all the directions on yesterday's post for Just Add Ink (JAI#518)  I watercoloured the white leaf after I had adhered the gold veins just to soften it, and I added a strip of mint DSP to the front of one of the tent stands as the white was a bit stark. That's the cool thing about this design, you can change it up plenty of ways. I'm sure we can all send these type of cards at the moment. I hope you are safe and well, and staying connected, wherever you are. I hope you have a creative week and remember,  "don't just post online,  post something pretty!" cheers, Liz Product List Ornamental Envelopes Bundle [ 155168 ] $83.50 Envelopes  Dies [ 153531 ] $63.00 Shimmery White A4 Car
