Today my hop project focuses on one of the optional Add-On sets, DC219 Daisy and Bugs Stamp & Cut.

This set is adorable and filled with fun images and sentiments.  I used the large daisy and the hello sentiment.  The bloom has been stamped with Intense Black Ink and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.  The hello has been heat embossed in white on black cardstock.  

The watercolor cardstock, from my stash, has a combo of Mustard Seed + Spiced Marmalade Distress ink that have been spritzed with water.  I used the smooshing technique and used my heat gun to dry it and a dry baby wipe to fix any large puddling.

The watercolored panel has been adhered to a 3.5 x 5.5 inch Foliage panel.  The washi and twine are from my stash.

My card was inspired by Sunday Stamps:

In case you missed it, I was up on the Hero Arts blog yesterday with a card that uses stamps from the Main Kit only:
Those sugar pea blooms!  LOVE them!  All the images were stamped with Intense Black Ink.  Each bouquet was colored different with Zig Color Markers and both the watering can and boot were colored with Spectrum Aquas.

That ‘sweet’ sentiment was heat embossed in white and cut with one of the Circle Infinity Dies.  I love the entire Infinity Collection.  You can’t go wrong with them, there is a size for any projects.  The rectangle panels are cut with the Rectangle Infinity Dies.

That’s if from me…next up is the amazing Michelle Short!  In case you get lost along the way, here’s the entire hop listing:

  31. Your cards are beautiful.. The Yellow card with the daisy has to be my fave, So sunny and cheerful! Great work as always <3

  32. I see we are going to be good friends because you used a lot of my favorite color, yellow, in both of your cards. Not enough people use yellow in their cards but you sure did!
    That flower with the yellow background is so pretty! I love flowers and I love flower stamps. I hope my flowers come up in my garden and the mutant ninja squirrels don't dig them up before they even have a chance to grow. Sometimes I make a green flower but usually I don't because the leaves are green but you don't have any leaves so the green flower works!
    I love the pretty flowers in the watering can and the 'yellow' boot! Everything is so colorful and ready for someone to love them once they get them.
    Thanks for letting us see your pretty, colorful cards and for giving us the chance to win this kit. I so want to win it! I hope that I do.

  33. I come here cause I see your lovely card on Sunday Stamps Amy
