a "30 Minute Quickie" card....

I don’t know about you....
but my life is HECTIC!!!
I ALWAYS seem to be on the go.

I’ve been spending every waking moment
creating CHA projects, designing and 
trying to kick a bad allergic attack.
(Yeah....I FINALLY have my voice back!!)

In all the hub~bub....I TOTALLY forgot I needed to 
make a creation for my Die~Namites Dies blog post.

So I “Whipped up a Quickie” card!!
It was created in under 30 minutes.

I began with a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Kraft paper,
cut to 8.5”x 5.5” and folded in half.
I used my Distrezz it All to tear up the edges.
I stamped on the front of the card with
my favorite Hero Arts verbage stamp....
(I call it “white noise”)

Then I cut a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Kraft E Flute
3.75” x 5”, distressed the edges, wrapped it
with some Jute and adhered it to the front of the card.

and a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Linen paper.
I diecut the Daisy Vine image
and painted it with a bit of
Sweet Alfalfa ~ Twinkling H2O’s
I love how the paper kinda curls
when you dry it with a Heat Tool.
I then adhered it to the face of the card.

Next, I found a package of 
Petaloo ~ CMC ~ Mini Pearl Daisies,
along some Coral Berry and Yellow Rose

Silks Acrylic Glaze.

I spritzed the flowers with water,
and painted each flower the Yellow Rose.
I slightly dried the flowers and 
then with a small paint brush,
I placed slightly watered down Coral Berry
in the center of the Mini Daisy.
(if the paint doesn’t wick up the petals,
spritz with a bit more water.)
Then I dried the flowers.

I adhered the flowers to the Daisy Vine diecut image.
(I added an extra flower as I got a bit
rough with my diecut, when it was wet,
and tore off a piece....oooops!!)

I then wrote my sentiment on some of the leftover
Kraft paper, edged them with a bit of the leftover
Coral Berry and adhered with pop dots.
I also edged the card with a bit of the Coral Berry.

And there you have it.....
a “30 Minute Quickie”!!!
