Cheerful Daisies Birthday

Hey all! Look - a card!! We are always crazy busy, but we stayed home this weekend and got some things done. We started on outside clean-up work last weekend and it is mostly done - yeah! Even a big extra project done! There is always more to do, but it got super windy yesterday so inside seemed a much better choice!! I am working on an overall purge of the stamp room and progress was made there as well. So, last night I decided to give the one new stamp set I ordered a try!

Oh, and in addition to purging in general, I've sorted out the old colors and added all the new that I have to my markers, ink pads, blends and cardstock. Always feels better when I can just reach and know that all is current!

The new set is Cheerful Daisies-page 111 in the new catalog! You all know I'm a sucker for flowers! I only preordered this one set, and I have very few remaining after the retired list hit, but that is OK! I'm sure I'll pick out a few more, but I'm really trying to keep it simple until I get a handle on this room! Here is the card!

The card is quite simple as well. New color for the base, Pecan Pie. I like this brown, it is softer than Soft Suede. Accent of Daffodil Delight, Basic White background. I stamped three large daisies in Basic Gray. I then grabbed blending brushes. It is a little spotty as I haven't done this for a while, but Pecan Pie across the top, Basic Gray across the bottom, Daffodil Delight across the center, and Lemon Lolly over the flowers. The center of the flowers was stamped in Daffodil Delight. Over the flowers and centers, I used Stella (Wink of Stella glitter brush). The saying is from this set a, stamped in Pecan Pie and then cut with a die in the coordinating set as well. I bought the bundle!

My inspiration for this is a picture on the wall in my stamp room. As I sat there last night with this set on my desk it caught my eye! And I of course saw it in Stampin' up! colors! I have another idea as well, we'll see if I can get there today. I hear wind again outside, so will likely be upstairs once I get past bills and laundry! Here is the picture!

I should have gotten a more straight-on shot but I didn't! Keep an eye out - inspiration is always right there!! Have a GREAT Sunday all! Hope to be back soon!

Product details that I can are linked below. New colors and sets I can't do yet! As I said the Cheerful Daisies bundle is on page 111. New colors are detailed on 122 and 123!
