Crafty Daisy

I've been busy in the garden for a few days as it's been better than the forecast, and after a visit to the garden centre I've made up a basket and a couple of planters to fix to the new fence now that it's had a final coat of paint .. .. a bit of a saga from blue to white and now to stone but at least I can say that the first few attempts using up the old odds and ends were undercoat ... and now it looks nice and crisp.  Today it's a bit breezy and with rain on the way I'm hoping things will survive, so no more gardening today, instead I might just get back to crafting again.

To my card - this is Daisy crafting, one of the new stamps from Marianne Design and I coloured her with my Copics.  I did enjoy making this one with the stitching and layers.

The base is cut with a Go Create Frilly #10 die from red card, then I cut a slightly smaller layer from the pretty French Roses paper pack.  I cut out my stamped and coloured Daisy image with one of the fancy stitch dies and then backstitched around with red floss, and had fun stitching the leaves and flowers too.  The embellishment die cuts are all by Marianne Design with little pearls and tiny red hearts added from my stash.

Here's the list of Marianne Design things I used:
that gorgeous paper from the French Roses pack PK9106
white tulle JU0924
Daisy crafting stamp DDS3340
Text from COL1324 and label from COL1325
B.F.F. stamp on balloon from COL1307
balloon die PP1401
tiny butterflies from LR0261
scissors LR0195
red swirl snips from LR0112
Daisy cut out with CR1248
flowers and leaves from CR1248 & CR1249
die cut ribbon CR1269
