The most awkward thing of a card with no stamping is the stamping but it gave me the chance to used the brilliant Good Luck die from CZ Design at Simon says Stamp.

And I also use perhaps my favourite dies from Simon says Stamps the Stitched Daisies, my first card a blending a bit of yellow ink on the tips of the flower and the mat I planned for my dies to sit on.

The daisy sits on the leaves from the Cluster Leaves and the Outline Cluster Leaves which I cut them from different green card.

Since I love the daisies so much I made another in white but this time I used the Simon says Stamps Falling Heart Stencil to emboss with but I recommend to cut with the Stitched Rectangle before embossing so you don't lose definition.

Finally I used the Painted Congrats! die and I cut it twice but now I have photo the card maybe I should have done it three times to help it pop.

I've had a pretty busy weekend which always leaves me a bit worn out and today I've woke with a sore throat fingers crossed it doesn't get any worse.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Two gorgeous cards Debby with two fairly similar designs but looking so different. I love the colours you have used on the daisies and the background to one side, a great design idea, and with the large leaf cluster and large sentiment to finish and wonderful colour combo, just perfect! The second is beautiful in the WOW and love the sweet little hearts embossed in the background elegant. x

Pretty cards! Isn't it funny, how when we're asked to do no stamping, it seems hard, yet there are plenty of times we actually make a no-stamping card of our own accord and think nothing of it? All-white cards always have an elegant flair, and yours is absolutely lovely.
