Gerber Daisy Easel Cards! Welcome to Blog Hop Week!
For those playing Blog Bingo, today's Call Space is.....Rue des Fleurs
Hi Everyone! Welcome to a week of Spring Blog Hopping! A group of us demos got together for a fun week of sharing our spring inspired creations. We hope you enjoy the hop and check back daily for a fresh dose of springtime inspiration!
Above is a bunch of Gerber Daisy Easel Cards :) The daisy's color pallet are from the Brights Color Collection (p. 177 in the catalog). Colors used are Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, and Tempting Turquoise.
The color collections are designed to work together in tones and color intensity. Yesterday's post talked about the Subtles Color Collection and today's features the Brights! I love working with the different color collections... Stampin' UP! makes it so easy for us!

Fold back top half of card base towards fold.
With Patterns Designer Paper, die cut a scallop circle. With 5x5 cardstock, die cut scallop.
With 1-3/8" circle punch, punch cardstock and run through Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. With Tombo, glue in center of flower. With scissors, cut inbetween scallops to form gerber blossoms. The center will serve as a guide of where to stop! Put dimensionals on the back of the gerber daily in the center under the flower's center, adhere flower onto card stock scallop. Fluff blossoms. Adhere to folded back card front. Stamp sentiment and punch with scallop oval. Adhere to card base. This will serve as a stopper for the gerber daisy!
