Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the middle of the month already? January usually drags for me, but it seems to be flying by. Does anyone have plans? Other than working my only plan is to try to stay warm, it’s supposed to be a cold one here.
Today’s card we made at our team lounge this past Tuesday. My upline Jaimie has a small meeting and then we do some mystery stamping. I really do enjoy it, even if she makes me go out of my comfort zone. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Bundle along with the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper for my card today.
My colors are from Global Design Project Color Challenge #325.
I started by embossing a Pool Party card front using the Gingham Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the butterfly and 2 daffodil images from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using my Daffodil Dies. I colored the images using my Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to a Very Vanilla mat and then to the card front on an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the daffodil and butterfly images to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I tied a bow with my Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it next to the daffodils using a Glue Dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love & Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon and daffodils using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love & Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the butterfly and smaller daffodil images from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I colored the images in using my Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the single daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it using my Pale Papaya and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
