Popped Up Daisies & Encouraging Messages
With all that is going on, I hope you are staying safe … and like me, crafting as much as possible!
Because of the difficult situation we are all facing with COVID-19, I feel like making cards with encouraging themes and sentiments are most-appropriate right now. I’ve been trying to send cards to friends and family lately and I need more uplifting cards in my stash.
So… let’s talk about the card I’m sharing today!
This GORGEOUS Crazy for Daisies stamp set from LDRS Creative is so much fun to color. Off camera, I spent time working on the no-line watercoloring, which is a great way to relax and de-stress. The watercolors I chose to use are Prima Marketing’s Watercolor Confections.
The coordinating die for this set is really cool! It only partially cuts certain petals and leaves from the stamp. When you add some foam tape behind those areas, you get AWESOME dimension!
I have a set of the Simon Says Stamp All Things Happy sentiment strip set, which I’ve been making great use of lately. This set is filled with happy and uplifting greetings that are perfect for encouraging cards. I loved how the “sending happy thoughts” paired with the card design.
Now I cannot wait to get this pretty card out in the mail to someone special! Are you sending cards to people you know right now? We all have a lot going on right now and spreading some love with a handmade card is a great way to brighten someone’s day!
