Gerber Daisy Flower Tags

Good evening!

I hope you had a blessed Easter weekend.  It really is one of my favorite holidays because of the meaning of the holiday ... Hope.  Could there be a better word in the dictionary?  Well, maybe Love.  Both words describe the day perfectly to me.  Someone Who loved mankind enough to give us Hope.  Thank you, Jesus.

Tonight, I have a couple of tags that I made recently with this GORGEOUS Flourishes stamp set called Gerber Daisies.  Oh how I LOVE Gerber daisies... they are some of the most cheerful flowers to me!

Here's a close up of the tag - can you see that I used orange Distress stickles on the flower centers and butterflies?  LOVE that stuff too!

Tag Details
Stamps: Flourishes Gerber Daisy; SU twill background
Cardstock: GinaK; Basic Grey Kioshia
Ink: Versafine black; Memento and Vivid
Other: Nestability Curvy rectangle, copics, distress stickles, embossing powder, ribbons, pearls, nailheads

Next, up is another tag made with the same stamp set.  This time, I paper pieced the flowers, shaded with Copics, and then stamped some extra ones to pop up for some added dimension.  Honestly, when I was in the middle of this one, I thought to myself that I might be crazy cutting those flower heads out!  lol!

Tag Details
Cardstock: GinaK; Basic Grey Kioshi
Ink: Versafine black
Other: Copics, ribbons, Labels 10 nestability dies, rhinestone brad, piercer, white gel pen, glitter, glue pen; Family Treasures scallop oval punch

I think it's hard to see the dimension on my flowers - but hopefully you can see it a bit...

I've added these two tags as well as other recent cards to my Etsy shop.  Check it out, if you're interested!

Thanks so much for checking in on me ~ and have a wonderful evening!
