Welcome back to my blog 😊

Today I am participating in a blog hop with the Crazy Crafters.
We are all showcasing new products from the new 2017-2018 annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue...
Not long to go now - only 3 days!!!
And we can all get out hands on more of these stunning items!
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver, I have a list of all other participants towards the end of my blog to enable you to keep seeing more wonderfully crafty ideas.

Today I am sharing with you a project I have made using the gorgeous Colour Theory Designer Series Paper stack.
 This card design is another one for #Loveitchopit! And I am planning a class around these papers and the Daisy suite 😍
I now have 2 of my samples ready to show my class come Monday morning.

Here it is!

You Look Gorgeous Daisy!

For my card today I have chosen to work with a couple of new in colours for 2017-2019.
 Berry Burst from the wonderful NEW 6 x 6 Color Theory Designer Series Paper stack..
I have paired that with the stunningly delicious Lemon Lime Twist which is the second NEW in colour.

To make my card front using crackled DSP, I first glued thick Whisper White to the back of it. 
I then trimmed it to size. I used my Stitched Shapes Framleits to cut out my side focal window onto the edge, but making sure I had the Whisper White side facing up. 
This way the stitches were visible on the white side where needed 😉
I then nested a layering Oval with the Stiched shape oval and cut a Berry Burst frame for my focal area. I glued this into place and then trimmed off the excess.

I punched two daisies using thick whisper white. I then daubed my colour onto the flowers. I have made a little video showing the flower colouring technique HERE
I stamped the leaves onto the white side of the oval in Lemon Lime Twist and added my daisy.
I adhered my card front onto the card base using dimensionals. 
I then glued the oval stamped images and the flower into place straight onto the card base.
