Darling Daisies

Hello friends

Bright, fun, quick and easy!
This was one of my samples on display in the Platinum Show on The Craft Channel recently,
it features that rather spoiled pooch of mine - Bella.
I used one of the new Contour steel rule dies - Darling Daisies 
and an assortment of fun foam.  Adhered them to a frame (99p store) and done!

I ran the die through the Platinum multiple times and because it is designed to cut 
an assortment of sized flowers it wasn't long before I had quite a lot of them.
In fact, so many I arrived at the studio with a bag full so we were putting them everywhere -
 I do get carried away sometimes!
These also look fun taped to wooden sticks/skewers for party decorations.
There is something strangely satisfying about cutting fun foam...or is that just me?

So I'm peeking through the curtains and no rain...yet!
I thought about clearing the garden today but... 
thinking craft may be top of the agenda instead.

Take care friends.

  6. Great idea for decorating a frame Christine! I love fun foam!
    Just spent a lovely day at Ally Pally, came home a little lighter in my purse and saw some good demo's.
