When I was designing cards for the Essex stamping group, I decided that I would use the same stamp sets that I used with the South Burlington group. Both sets feel perfect for early-Summer stamping, and it made my life easy in terms of figuring out what to do. For this card I wanted to show the gals how to easily convert the punched daisy flower into a black-eyed Susan. You could easily change up the color to a purple flower, and you’d have a lovely Echinacea plant. I’m not a horticulturalist, but I bet that there are other pretty flowers that you can create in this same fashion. All you have to do is cut a punched daisy in half and off-set the petals to create this pretty flower. We punched a stamped Early Espresso center and there you have it! Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

I used this sketch as the inspiration for my card design. I thought the vertical panel was just perfect for the flower and stem images, and I’m happy with how this card came out. I was also happy to use some of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP for the larger horizontal panel. All of the OnStage attendees received a pack of this lovely paper, and I was happy to cut some up for this project. I think the group enjoyed making the card, too.
