Whimiscal Susan's Garden Mini Dasies

I think we all love daisies.  If you are like me, you like to be creative with your flower dies to create more than just one style flower. Today I thought I would show you another way to use your Susan's Garden Mini Daisy dies.   I had some polka dot embellishments I thought made cute stamens for these daisies.  These were purchased from  Michaels.  

I have a tutorial below, to show you how I created the daisies but first I'll give you info on the die cuts used to create this scene.  The fence is the Poppy Stamps Picket Fence, the stems for the daisies is the Impression Obsession tall grass, Clouds are the Memory Box Puffy Clouds, Memory Box Gold Finch,  and butterflies were cut from the Memory Box Butterfly vine.  The sentiment is from a Paper Smooches Scripty Sayings stamp set.

Here is a little tutorial on how I created the daisies.

 Use the calyx from the Susan's Garden Mini Daisy die set.  Use the leaf tool from the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit to score a line across the middle (on the leaf pad from the kit) leaving four legs on each side of the score line.

 Use the bone folder to crease the calyx in half.  You can see the open calyx on the left and the folded one in the middle.  I used eight daisy petals that were colored with Susan's Garden Pan Pastels at the base then shaped with the small loop tool on the thick shaping pad.

 This picture shows the daisy upside down with the bottom four petals glued to the four bottom calyx points.

 This picture shows the top petals added to the top calyx points.

 This is what the finished flower petal base will look like.  Press down on the fold of the calyx so it is just slightly open.  

You can then add whatever you want to create the center of the flower such as: pearls, rhinestones, Susan's Garden Pollen, etc.
