Hello everyone..

I made a few backgrounds the other day for the sole purpose of using my new daisy die set..

I wanted to die cut them out and then I new I didn't want to use papers, so I made my own backgrounds, with paste, stencils, sprays, and stamping through the negative of the die cut..

First I had to cut out my new daisy and put the layers together, not hard,but fiddly..

I made three stenciled with modelling paste panels..

and sponged pale grey ink through the negative of my daisy..

Sprayed and grunged a couple of panels..

Added my Daisies and made 4 cards, sympathy cards,

I love this background and when the light hits it, it has such a lovely glimmer..

I enjoyed making this back ground with the negative die cut..

This was a relatively new stencil and sponged with yellow...

This one was done with my brick stencil the sort of grunged up a bit with my Grey ink, but still makes a lovely Sympathy card.

So there we go, the dies were from Altenew, they don't come with a stamp just the dies, and I LOVE it and going to make more like this as they sell really well..

So there we go, our clocks went forward this morning, not too worried this year as I do not have to go out to work, and slept on merrily and quite content to 8.30am..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you in a couple of days..

Love your new daisy die cuts Chrissy and the backgrounds are gorgeous- all individual and they make such a difference to each card although the design is the same- couldn't choose a favourite, they're all beautiful!
Oh it's great being retired- and not having to get up when the clocks change!!

I think daisies are such a happy flower! You've done an amazing job with your sympathy designs here and I love the dimension you've created with your flowers along with the coloring! The brick background is probably one of my faves! :)

Brenda said...

WOW, all beautiful cards. This is going on my wishlist for sure. I love your varied backgrounds and how they give the flowers completely different looks. I have one of the Altenew flower dies, you have inspired me to give it a go. Hope you are doing well, Chrissy!

These are so lovely, Chrissy - the daisies are really pretty, and I love the subtle variations with the sombre, but not too sombre, colour tones for the backgrounds. That first one with the textured squares is wonderful. Sadly, I've needed a couple of sympathy cards lately - these would have fitted the bill beautifully.

Who needs a matching stamp when they can do what you do Chrissy. They are so beautiful and each card is amazing!! Glad you are appreciating not having to get up for work any more. Nothing quite like it lol.

It’s really clever to make ca da in batches like this. They’re similar in layout, but not identical. I tend to forget about doing this, though I try. I like them all, but especially the one made with the negative die cut used as stencil. I like how the background and flowers match.
