Shimmer Daisy

Although I am busy getting some cards ready for the two releases this week, I managed to squeeze in a quick card using two sets by illustrator Asela Hopkins (for Gina K Designs)-Botanical Dreams, Flowers for Daisy.

I used my Shimmerz Paints to add some incredible shine to the daisy. It is hard to see in the photo above--but hopefully this close up gives you an idea of the shimmer!




Check out the flower center! I used pumpkin Shimmerz Paints on the flower center and sunflower on the edge of the circle and all along the card border....resulting in some amazing sparkle....love it!


Materials used: Flowers for Daisy, Botanical Dreams (Gina K Designs); Brilliance Black ink; old olive ink, ruby red ink (Stampin' Up!); cardstock-vanilla, ruby red, barely bannana (Stampin' Up!); Copic markers; Shimmerz Paints-pumpkin, sunflower; Oval nestability dies (Spellbinders); Tag dies (Provocraft); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); raffia; dimensionals (SU!).
Stay tuned for some sneak peeks from the newest releases from My Favorite Things (release on Wednesday, September 3) and Gina K Designs (release on Friday, September 5). I have a new set that will be released through Gina K on Friday so I am very excited to share my projects with you! Stay tuned for your chance to win it!

ohh this is a pretty card! I love those scallop oval nestie! Silly me I got the rectangles! Don't get me wrong I like those too, but I might have to beg for the ovals for my birthday!

Can't wait to see your new set!!!

This is totally gorgeous Cammie - I just love those images and the leaves in the background!! Thanks for your sweet comments on my Cards for the Troops - I sure remember how lonely Iraq was when I was there so I want to make sure I do something to make it a little brighter for someone while they are away from their family! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Beautiful, Cammie! Love your cards, love your blog. In fact, I have given you the "I Love Your Blog" award, even though I know you've already gotten it:)

Lovely card. I'm laughing now because I just used this same stamp image on some ATCs I made last week that I just posted on my blog yesterday. And, I used an oval shape too, lol. Guess we were on the same wavelength last week, lol.
