It's a Dandy!~

Kraftin' Kimmie did a new release recently and I totally fell in love with this cute stamp. I know that a dandelion is considered a weed to most but I love them. They are fun! My husband always tells me that "a weed is just a flower in the wrong place." So we do not have many weeds here..lol He often takes pics of the "weeds" or wildflowers as we like to call them. My mom's friend and a lady I love dearly, posted about loving dandelions the other day on her Facebook status. I knew right away I wanted to make her a card with this stamp as soon as I got it in the mail, so I did. I had a tougher time with her than I thought I would. She looked easy to color, since there is not much to color... but I trashed two before this one. I like to shade, so it is hard to do so in smaller spaces I guess. Anyway... I had fun with it, eventually..lol I love that I can add Sparkly Fluff to the dandelion parts and give it some cool texture. I went a little nuts with the embellies, which is not usual for me... but it was fun I must admit, it was cool stepping out of the norm. The funny thing is, I love flowers on peoples cards, especially this kind...but it never looks right when I try to use them. This time I just went with it and had to commit because I was using liquid glue..lol That is one way to do it I guess.

  2. You know I love this card! I know the lady you sent it to will love it as well! I have those flower issues, too. I have so many that I bought (on sale!) that hardly ever see the light of day!

  3. It turned out beautifully Tracy! I feel the same way...I see someone's card and think I can do that and I look at mine and think BLEH take some of it off! I ove all the embellies you used and it all works perfectly! HUGS

  4. This is beautifully and so well done. Love the striking blue and your coloring is fantastic. And the butterflies and flowers just make it over the top wonderful.


  5. Zowie! This is stunning and makes me smile! What a lovely card for your friend! Hugz, Cheryl

  6. This is awesome! Cute image and nice embellies... I LOVE the blue sprigs you used as fillers in your arrangement. I know what you mean about liking flowers etc on other peoples cards; I love the look but struggle to replicate it (mine always just look messy, lol) BTW I have Candy, if you're interestedDonna ☺

  7. Hey girl - just wanted to stop in and say hi - I've missed you and your creativity...this is one exceptional beauty! Love the striking color combo and her fluffy dandelion skirt you created - the tulle and charm are just perfect accents and I love the lacy heart border! The inking in the bg is inspired ! Hope you're doing well :)

  8. Very Nice Card. Great image! I love all the texture and that blue and gold color combo is stunning!
