Gelli Gerbera ...

To say that it has been raining today would be an understatement ... so no gardening and no garage sorting!  It is such a shame I had no option but to craft all day!  I've started lots of different things but only managed to finish one card.  I really must learn to concentrate on one thing at a time but today I've flitted between three different projects - some I may share later either on my blog or with the recycling bin!

Anyway less chat on to my card:

This card started with a piece of a gelli print left behind from another card which I stamped with the gerbera stamp before die cutting with the new matching die (thanks to Bev at Uniko, I'm not a fan of fussy cutting!!).  I cut a small panel and spread some molding paste to add texture before sticking a few die cut bricks.  The thread is from some hessian.

I used:
Uniko Pure Florals: Gerbera
Golden Light Molding Paste
Crafters  Workshop Mini Rustic Paint Stencil
Marianne Design Brick wall die
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Galaxy Gold Ink

I am entering the following challenges:

Uniko Challenge #24 Summer with the optional twist of using this photograph for inspiration

Addicted to Stamps #159 Clean and Simple



  1. What a fabulous card...I so like the brick wall effect and clever use of left overs for your Gerbera.......which reminds me that mine might like to see the light of day!

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! I like everything about your card: the CAS design with lots of white space, the rounded edges, the great wall design, the cool pattern in your flower and the matching twine! Thank you very much for playing along with us at ATSM this week. Sunny regards from stempelfrida

  3. WOW! Just fantastic Elaine!
    Great use of the gerbera set and love how you've created such brilliant dimension yet retained the CAS style too. Simply brilliant.
    thanks for playing along at Uniko. Sarah x

  4. I love the gerbera daisy - the patterned paper is so pretty. Love the textured background too. Thanks so much for playing along with Uniko Challenge this month! x

  5. This is one schweeet design, Elaine! The rustic colors of the daisy against the twine and the brick wall ... perfection in a CASlicious card!! Thank you for linking to the Uniko Summer Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
