Guest Designer for June - Penny Ward

Hi friends…Penny Ward here and so honored to be a Guest Designer at The Rubber Cafe!. 

Today I have a set of one layer note cards I colored with gelatos. How adorable is this Daisy Bouquet stamp?!?  Who said you have to stay inside the lines while coloring?

I also die cut a 1 inch curved border away from the card front to stamp the sentiments from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set. And because I never think a card is finished, I dry embossed a few lines down the front of the note card.

I diecut the box using my Silhouette Cameo, and stamping the Daisy image on top of designer paper really ties the note set together.  I stamped and fussy cut the Small Swirled Butterfly for the top of box. 

Because I just love that Daisy stamp I had to make another card. This little cutie is super easy to make. The circles cut from the front panel were done again using my Silhouette Cameo, but you could easily achieve this with a circle punch.

I stamped the flower image 3 times across a wide strip of white card stock and attached it to the back of the front panel with foam adhesive, leaving those sweet daisy's peaking out of my circle windows!  A white gel pen along with white Enamel Accents on the flower centers and you are finished.

beautiful cards Penny! Love that daisy stamp - the whimsy of your first card "color outside the lines" has me in awe. I'm trying that!

And thanks for showing off an "Express Edges - Enjoy" die. It's perfect to use as a sentiment on a card front like this.

Great job my friend {super Guest Designer pick Melissa!!}
