Bright Daisy Frame

Hello friends! Today, I’m sharing a Bright Daisy Frame for a blog hop sponsored by Stampendous®! and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™! What fun! Favorite stamping products and favorite adhesives!
You can find all the details for Day 2 here. And there are prizes!  

For my Bright Daisy Frame, I used Stampendous! Cling Daisy Mix stamp set and matching Daisy Mix die set with Spring Micro Glitter and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Girlie Grunge Gauze, 3D Foam Squares and Dodz Mini.

To make this frame, I started with a wood craft frame and painted it soft yellow.  For some texture and a little bit of shabby chic look, I glued Girlie Grunge Gauze to it.  I used Dual Tip Glue Pen to spread a thin coat of glue over frame.  Then I pressed and smoothed a piece of Girlie Grunge Gauze over it.  I trimmed gauze along edges and opening.
Next, I created the flowers.  I used stamps from Stampendous® Cling Daisy Mix set with black ink on white card stock. I colored them with Distress Crayons and blended the colors with water.  Photo shows upper flower and leaf colored with crayons and bottom flower and leaf colored and blended with water. 
 It’s so easy to cut these out with matching Stampendous® Daisy Mix Die Cut Set!  Simply match the inner edges of die with stamped image, tape in place and pass through die cut machine.  Perfect cut!   I shaped the flower petals at this point while they were still a little damp.
Next, I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ Dual Tip Glue Pen to apply glue over pink areas and applied Pink glitter from Stampendous Spring Micro Glitter Set.  Then I added glue over the yellow areas and sprinkled with Sunflower glitter.  For leaves, I used Lime glitter along veins, then added glue along edges and sprinkled with Sunflower glitter.  Upper flower and leaf in photo have one color glitter; lower leaf and flower have 2 colors.

For the flower centers, I applied glue with Dual Tip Glue Pen (so easy to use!) and covered with Stampendous Chunky Metallic Seasonings Embossing Enamel.  I did not heat it. I simply used it as a nice textured flower center!
 After flowers dried completely, I applied Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares under center of each flower.  On leaves, I used a small 3D Foam Square near center of leaf and Dodz Mini at base end. 

 I left the backing on the adhesives while I arranged flowers on the frame.  It was easy then to remove adhesive backing and press each flower or leaf in place!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you’ve enjoyed this Bright Daisy Frame!
