Daisies and Paisleys

Hey there! I hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s been another super busy one for me, but I’ve been trying to get my craft on after work instead of relying solely on weekends (because we all know how fast they like to fly by). This past Friday I celebrated my 25th birthday! I went on a day trip to NYC and had an amazing time shopping and eating, eating, eating. “Yum” is really the only word I have to describe that day.

Anyhoo, I’ve got another Paper Smooches card to share with you! This one features the set Daisies & Paisleys:


I’m having a lot of fun with mist lately. For this card, I used a Tattered Angels mist to create a pink background and then heat embossed all the paisleys on top! Truth be told the orange paisleys were actually created using a very bright yellow embossing powder, but for some reason it turned out to be more transparent than opaque so they look orange. I was really annoyed at first, but then ended up kind of liking the effect so I went with it and used an orange patterned paper for the mat.

Do you ever make crafty mistakes that you turn into something better? A “make it work moment” as Tim Gunn would say. I make quite a few in the craft room whether it’s getting an ink smudge on a piece of white cardstock or cutting something to the wrong dimensions…I’ve done it all.

So if you’re a fan of this set (which, why wouldn’t you be? It’s adorable!), definitely check out Daisies and Paisleys at the Paper Smooches site and snatch one up!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you back here soon!
