Stampin' Up Daffodil Daydream Easter Blessing Card For The Paper Players Challenge

Who else is excited that it is time to prepare those Spring cards?? As the days get longer here in Mid-Missouri, I find my spirits lifting.  Which fits perfect with this weeks theme challenge at The Paper Players Challenge: Easter 
I started with a panel of Night of Navy patterned paper from Stampin' Up Regency Park DSP and adhered it to a So Saffron card base.

I die cut a piece of Balmy Blue card stock with Stampin' Up Radiating Stitches Dies, a new Online Exclusive product.  This new die set is a perfect staple for any card maker.

Next, I stamped flowers from Stampin' Up Daffodil Daydreams Stamp Set on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I colored the image with Stampin' Blends: Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green and Ol Olive.

I stamped the sentiment in the corner of the die cut with Night of Navy ink.  I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid adhesive.

I die cut the colored image with Stampin' Up Daffodil Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished the front off with a bow tied from Stampin' Up Orchid Oasis Woven Metallic Ribbon and Stampin' Up Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots.

The inside is a panel of Very Vanilla with a flower stamped at the bottom corner with Mementos Tuxedo Black Ink.  I colored it with Stampin' Blends.  I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Brushed Brass Butterflies.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up this week!

  1. Nothing says "spring" and "Easter" like daffodils! Just beautiful! I can't wait to get my dies, too!

  2. Just beautiful Tara! Love the die cut under your daffodils, perfect colors too! :)

  3. Beautiful, Tara! The Night of Navy paper is gorgeous with the Balmy Blue cardstock and yellow daffodils. I LOVE the new Radiating Stitches dies. I can't wait to get mine. Have a wonderful week!

  4. This is so beautiful Tara! I love the daffodils and the mix of blues! Such a pretty card to welcome Easter!

  5. Very pretty, Tara! I'm really not commenting anonymously - it's me, Fran. (For some reason my computer is playing tricks with me today. I think some settings got changed.) Anyway, your card both inside and outside is lovely. Xoxo, Fran

  6. So pretty Tara! I love how those daffodil's pop against the darker background. Wonderful inspiration to ink up this lovely stamp set. :)

  7. I love the yellow and navy combo Tara - that frame had so much impact. Great showcase of those mere dies too. A great Easter card - you can't go wrong with daffodils!

  8. Tara, I love the blue with the yellow. I also agree with Joanne, that frame really does add such impact. Love it
