Blue skies and Sunshine days

As we get ready to unveil a whole new ‘crop’ of stamps, we reflect on what we love about summer -- those bright blue skies and sunny days! Yep, this is a color challenge and to be in the running, all you need to do is use some combination of blue and yellow. It can be any shade! Play along and you could walk away with all four stamps in Flourishes’ June release! To enter and the rest of the details check out Flourishes Blog!


I pulled out the beautiful Gerber Daisies for my creation of blue skies and sunshine. I really love this vibrant lemon crochet trim, it really is perfect for summer. I angled the panel for something different, a scallop edge with some piercing tied off with silver cord. Then just for giggles I added some of these awesome BG Indigo square rhinestones in blue. Now I love the circle rhinestones but these squares are really starting to peek my interest. lol So you will probably see more of those here soon. :0) Hopefully you get a chance to play along with us. Check out the sunshine creations from the girls for some more inspiration:

This has to be one of my favorite Flourishes stamps and I love how you did a bouquet of yellow daisies with a pop of one blue! I always want to color my flowers blue even though it is an unusual color except for a few species. Beautiful card Stacy!
