Pushing Up Daisies

Happy Monday Morning! And how are you on this sunny, Monday morning? I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. I am up and at 'em bright and early. I wanted to go ahead and share with you what we are working on this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. This week we are creating projects with our favorite flower. I chose to work with daisies. To be perfectly honest though, my absolute favorite flower is the stargaizer lily, but I had no idea how I could scrap it. I do not have any svg's that are close to it or any pix. So I went to my next favorite...a daisy. I decided to make a little cookie container with ribbon lid. I found the pattern for this container at My Scrap Chick in a set called '30 Boxes & More.' I also cut these daisies out using a My Scrap Chick freebie Friday pattern. If anyone would like the flower svg, shoot me an email (aymee810@yahoo.com) and I'll forward it to ya since it was a freebie. I embossed each set of petals with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I cut out the bees using the Cricut Home Decor' cartridge. I cut the phrase 'pushing up daisies' out using my SCAL software. The grass is a Martha Stewart Icicle border punch turned upside down. I also added in some Stickles, rhinestones, and drew with a white gel pen. I used Helmar Scrap Dots to secure all but one of my daisies to the top of the lid. LOVE that stuff...so sturdy! For the center flower, I used Helmar Zap Dots to pop it up a bit for added dimension. Here is my project:
Up close of my daisies. There are 3 layers of petals to each flower. I added a yellow circle to the center of each and stickled that. I also chose to add a small bee to the center of the largest daisy.
I had to take these pix inside since it was dark outside. This next pic is a bit dark, but it shows the embossing better, so I thought I would share it.
See how the flowers pop up? I love these daisies! I also bent up the edges of my grass.
That is all from me today. If you can, do hop on over to The Cuttlebug Spot to check out the other floral creations my fellow DT sista's have created! :) I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend!!! Thanks for droppin' by my blog today! Happy Scrappin!
