Cheery Cards Using the Shasta Daisy Strip!

Hi everyone, it's me Gabrielle here today sharing with you my final projects as guest designer this month for Cheery Lynn Designs.  It's been such an enjoyable month creating with all these beautiful die cuts!  For my final projects I thought I would play a little more with the Shasta Daisy Flower strip!  I thought I would change things up a bit and use the strip on two types of paper, regular card stock and some vellum, so that I could make a bloom with layers that you could see through. 

To make this flower I cut 2 of the largest blooms on the strip out of pink vellum, and 2 of the same size from a soft pink card stock.  I used a good white gel pen (my favourite is the Signo Unibal pen, it works very well on vellum) to make little dots fading out from the center of the bloom (you only need to add the dots on the top 2 sheer layers).  And finally added an adhesive pearl center to finish the bloom.  I used a couple of cuts from the Tropical Flourish coming out from behind the bloom cluster to add a little dramatic flourish to the finished card.

For my second card I again used the Shasta Daisy Strip and combined it with Manon's Wedding Garland die cut.  This die cut has a pretty lacy oval design and a couple of pretty floral cuts in it as well.....here is what the die cut looks like...
I love that you don't end up wasting paper when you use this die cut, ...you get the lacy oval design and you get the extra floral bloom accents as well!
 
To make the daisy's above I just cut out 2 large and 2 of the next size down....I tinted the centers of the medium size blooms with some green chalk ink and finished with a gem accent.  For the smallest daisy I used 3 of the smallest cuts layered.

It's been such a pleasure being guest designer for the month of September, I hope you've enjoyed my projects as much as I've enjoyed creating them!  I want to thank BJ for her kind generosity and thank Lori Williams for her patient help in getting me organized for the month! xo
