A Blue Daisy


I have been loving the current trend of spotlighting with an inlaid die cut, and was inspired to make this card using a sketch challenge as my starting point.

The daisy stamp is from a Stampin' Up set, Infinite Goodness, and I coloured the images in the spotlight with Prismacolor pencils

My circle dies are not stitched, so I added faux stitching.

The sentiment is from Rubbadubbadoo Stamps (a New Zealand Company),
and silver embossed.

I love how this card turned out, and am linking it to:


  1. Beautiful colours used on this gorgeous card, loving this one

  2. This is beautiful Maxine! I just love how you only coloured the one flower, and then highlighted it with the stitched circle! Very creative and so lovely! hugs :)

  3. Your card is so CAS and pretty! Love the spotlighting! :)

  10. I really like this version of the inlaid die cut to spotlight something. This is way nifty!

    About my always tidy workdesk--I pick things up all the time because I have these CATS who try to craft when I'm not looking. They aren't so gentle with supplies.

  11. Oh this is a gorgeous card and so clever! very well thought!
