Buttercups and Daisies



We have plenty of these in our lawn - especially the buttercups. Not much in the way of dandelions though - the rabbits see to that!

This is one of the cards from my most recent class at my local craft shop. One of the ladies was a little worried when she saw all the flowers, but they are really simple to make - the trickiest part is getting them all to stay in place whilst you stick them to the card!

The daisies are just two layers of a Woodware 1" daisy punch stuck together, with a 1/4" circle of yellow crushed velvet card for the centre. After assembling the flower, we sponged a little hint of pink onto the tips of the petals with a sponge dauber.

The buttercups are an EK Success medium Retro Flower punch, with a very finely fringed and rolled strip of card for the centre. The leaves are a Woodware 1" Oak Leaf punch.

The background is stamped in Versamark with a flourish stamp.

I made a little matching tag as well.

Your blog is truly inspirational.
I use stampin up cardstock for a lot of my crafting, but could you recommend paper card for the finer punch work you carry out on your floral punch craft. As finding the correct weight in the correct colour is often a problem?
