Red Gingham and Yellow Daisies!

Lawn Fawn stamps and die cuts work so well together. I used patterned paper for the flowers, leaves and accent paper for the front of the card.  I used three different die cut circles for the background and added a  word banner.  The last touch was a small glossy accent heart.  A simple card sketch layout that can be used for many different cards.

Playful Poppies!

This is a new die cut I just got from Penny Black.  I used water color paper to die cut the flowers and then painted them with Ranger Ink dye inks in shades of red and green.  I then applied glossy accents to the flowers and stems and the extra buds. This was a card sketch for this week.  I added a word banner as the final touch.
