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!
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!
Stamps: Flourishes Gerber Daisy
Cardstock: GinaK; Basic Grey Kioshi

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!
