    I have five cards to share today! 

My first three cards use the new

For my first card, I stamped the image with Simon's Intense Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  


I used a sentiment from Hello Sunshine stamp set. I finished the card with clear sequins.
For my second card, I  heat embossed the Drawn Daisies cling background stamp.  I used my Zig Clean Brush Markers.  
 For the sentiment, I used Beautiful Butterfly stamp set. I finished the card with clear sequins.
For my third card, I again used the Drawn Daisies cling background stamp.  I stamped the image with Simon's Intense Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  
For the sentiment, I used Beautiful Butterfly stamp set. I finished the card with clear sequins.

For my fourth card, I used the Poppy Stem wafer die.   I created a watercolor background and added splatters. I colored the poppies using watercolors and the smooshing technique.  I added cosmic shimmer to the flowers for some added shine.  

 
I used a sentiment from Hello Sunshine stamp set. I finished the card with clear sequins.


For my last card, I used the  Poppy Stem wafer die. 
I chose to leave the flower white and use some of the pattern papers from August Card Kit. 

I used a sentiment from Hello Sunshine stamp set which is included in the  August Card KitI finished the card with clear sequins.

I am also sharing a Card Sharing stamp set that includes many sentiments to include inside of your card for the recipient to use your card to mail to someone else. I cut  1/4" to 1/2" strips of card stock or pattern paper that coordinated with my card.  I used score tape on the ends of each strip to adhere them across the bottom of the card.  I inserted a white card stock panel that was stamp with one of the sentiments from the Card Sharing stamp set.  
This allows me to write my note to the recipient.  All the recipient has to do,  is remove the card insert and send the card.  

I hope you have enjoyed the cards I created for today. 
Which card is your favorite?

As always thanks so much for hopping by!

  76. I absolutely LOVE this background stamp and haven't seen anyone use it yet! I was so delighted to see your unique use of the daisies with such a variety of colors and designs! I commend you on your use of such a variety of techniques. I often get stuck with one technique and stay with it when I have all these other supplies to use. Your use of copic markers, watercolor backgrounds (complete with smooshing technique) and even using a variety of patterned paper in a great layout-- all worked fabulous and amazing! And I admire you for making the pay it forward card inserts. I think these are such a great idea, and have started making some myself. Thank you for the reminder to use all of my options, and for your continued inspiration!!!!!
