The Queen at SCS this week is Stacy, aka twinshappy! Stacy has a wonderful gallery, full of inspiration. She's also very encouraging with her comments and has endeared herself to many, many of us at SCS. I chose this card as my inspiration. Here's my version....
Did you notice that I've jumped on that Washi wagon? LOL, I wasn't going to get caught in that. Then I was visiting Hobby Lobby and they had some on clearance. And it was yellow! So what was I to do? It jumped in my hands and rode home with me. Then I got the new Stampin' Up! catalog and saw that they have some. That jumped in my cart too. So I guess I'm going to be using Washi!
The daisy is inspired by my friend Loll. You may remember that I've used some of her beautiful, big daisies that she sent me. You can see one of those cards here and another here. Loll has also made some small daisies that fell in love with on her blog. So while I was at Hobby Lobby, a daisy punch landed in my bag too. LOL, I need to stay out of that place! I think I got it pretty close to Loll's. Thanks, my friend, for giving the details so I could make some candy!
I punched 2 daisies from some scraps of Whisper White and folded each petal by laying my bone folder along the center and pulling the sides up with my fingers. Does that make sense? Then I laid each on my piercing mat and used a large stylus to press the center. This brings the petals up. I punched a scrap of Daffodil Delight with the circle from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and added some Crystal Effects to the top of it. After it was good and dry I glued one punched daisy on top of the other and added the circle. And did a joyful dance! It looked like I wanted it to!
Loll has a tutorial for her large daisy. If my how to is clear as mud, check that out. She did pictures and a wonderful, step by step tutorial.
Addicted to CAS is going in Circles this week
The CAS challenge at SCS this week is Tool Time-Use Your Paper Piercer! The daisy is a circle with a circle in the middle and I've pierced a big circle all round.
Simon Says Challenge is still doing ANYTHING GOES so I'm taking this over there to join the nearly 1000 other cards in that gallery.
Pixies Playground is still in one piece despite the fact that Di is off celebrating elsewhere. So I'll take my snippet daisy over there to play.
Wow, that's a lot of challenges for this super CAS card!
