Dreamweavers Daisies

I made a card this morning – yippee! It’s a very simple one, and I’m going to share it with you.

The dry embossed daisies are done with a
Dreamweavers stencil and my BIGkick, using the rubber mat that I got with my Big Impressions starter kit. I also misted my paper with water before embossing to give it the nice deep, distinct edges, and I left it in the stencil to dry. That keeps it from curling. I colored the flower centers and the stems and leaves with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I also used a clear Glaze pen on the flower petals and centers. I distressed three of the edges with a Stampin’ Up! distresser and mounted it on Wild Wasabi, which also has three distressed edges. Then I adhered the daisy layers on Summer Sun.

I stamped the Thank You with Versamark and embossed it with detail white embossing powder. I double scored the lines beside the daisies, and also above the Thank You. Then I embossed the diagonal lines – all with my

I get my Dreamweaver stencils from Vicki B. You can email her at, if you’re interested. Tell her Lynette sent you! She can get you LOTS of other things, too, like Hero Arts, Penny Black, Lasting Impressions, Nestabilities – to name just a few.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

This card ROCKS!!!! Distresing the edges of that beautiful stenciled flower was a super idea.
