Embossed Daisies

What a beautiful day here in North Delta.  The sun is shining and it's a warm, breezy day.  I met my friend Tammy for lunch at the Earl's restaurant in Burnaby.  We hadn't seen each other since January, so had such a great time catching up.  Lots of laughs!!  We decided to share our dishes so that we could get a taste of a few things.  Delicious Grilled Prawn Tacos, Chicken and Brie Panini with fries and for dessert ... Chocolate and Toffee Sticky pudding --- yu-um!!  What a great start to the week!

Once back at home, I headed into the art studio for about an hour.  I saw a card on SCS that had flowers stamped and then it was run through an embossing folder.  I loved the look of it so used that idea today (sorry, can't remember who's card it was to give them a shout out).  I love the Upsy Daisy stamp set ... so pretty and cheerful with the yellow and orange.  Hope you like.

"Embossed Daisies"
Stamps:  Upsy Daisy (SU!)
Ink:  Stampin' Write markers:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive (SU!)

I inked the daisy stamp with the Stampin' Write markers, making the flowers Daffodil Delight and "thumping" Pumpkin Pie around the edges.  I stamped the image and then stamped again (without re-inking) a little higher up and to the right (second generation stamping), which gives the illusion there are daisies in the background.  I ran the stamped cardstock through my Big Shot with the embossing folder.  I then ripped the top edge on an angle and mounted it on a frame of Old Olive cardstock.

I adhered the ribbon onto the yellow polka-dot background paper and tied a knot on one side.  I used sticky strips to mount it onto the card base of Old Olive.  I then used sticky strips to mount the main image on top of the yellow polka-dot paper.  Done!
