Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi there and welcome to my stop on the Altenew Craft-A-Flower Daisy release blog hop! I’m so glad you’re here.

Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set

The Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set can be used with cardstock to make clean and simple designs — there’s even a bundle where you can pick up Altenew’s gradient cardstock and save 5%!

But if you know me, then you’ll know I just couldn’t resist using watercolors on these! :)

I got a little carried away with my cards — once I started playing I just couldn’t stop! So I have two versions of the same card to share with you: a sophisticated version using metallic watercolors and a bright and cheery version too!

Let’s hop to it!

Cheerful Daisies

First off, meet the cheerful version! I don’t know about you but I can use some cheer about now.

I started off by splashing on some color on watercolor paper, then I die cut the flowers and leaves.

Then I added some simple shading and details with another layer of the same color — so easy!

I curled the leaves a bit to add a little dimension — I think it almost looks 3D!

Sophisticated Daisies

For this next version I just had to play with the metallic watercolors — oh yes, HAD to be done!

I did the same steps as the cheerful version, only this time I cut the centers of the flowers out of black cardstock — I think it really makes them pop.

I wish you could see that metallic shimmer — it’s almost impossible to photo — but trust me, it’s there!

I can’t wait to get these in the mail for my stepmom and mother-in-law. Their birthdays are only 3 days apart so I usually end up making them similar cards while I have my supplies out.

I’d love to hear which version you like best — sophisticated or cheery!
