Stampin' Up Daffodil Daydream Mother's Day Card for The Paper Players Challenge


Today's card features a clean and simple design for the weekly Paper Players Challenge.  This week we are all creating clean and simple cards with a Spring has Sprung theme.  I decided to pull out Stampin' Up Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set. 
I started by die cutting a piece of Stampin' Up Masking Paper with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle Dies.
I adhered the Masking Paper to a panel of Basic White.  I blended So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz ink onto the Basic White using Stampin' Up Blending Brush.  I carefully removed the Masking Paper  exposing a colorful rectangle.
I stamped the flower from Stampin' Up Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on the ink blended panel.  I stamped the sentiment with Pear Pizazz ink.  I adhered the Basic White to a So Saffron panel.

I dry embossed a panel of Basic White with Stampin' Up Basics Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a So Saffron card base folded in tent fashion.

I adhered the stamped layers to the card front with Stampin'  Dimensionals.

I adhered pieces from Stampin' Up For Everything Fancy Sequins to the card front.

I stamped another flower to a panel of Basic White card stock with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered the stamped panel to the inside of the card base.

I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with for this weeks Paper Players Challenges Clean and Simple Challenge!

  1. Such a pretty card Tara! The colors are perfect! :)

  2. Beautiful, Tara! The blended panel is a perfect backdrop for the daffodil. Such yummy texture, too. Thank you for making my challenge shine. Have a wonderful week!

  3. Tara, I love how elegant and simple your card is. I like the color block. Well done!

  4. This is one of my favourite spring stamp sets Tara and I'm always looking for different ways to use it - your card showcases a great one, that inked area is so effective with just the stamp outline offset. Very clever and CAS too!

  5. I love how you added the sponging for the background--great technique without adding another layer! Beautiful daffodils, inside and out!

  6. Tara, love that ombre background. I also love that you kept your daffodil with just the black outline - it really pops. Fabulous card

  7. Tara, your beautiful card got me thinking about my mother. She was a Master Gardner and her favorite flower was the daffodil and her favorite color yellow. If she was still with us for this Mother's Day she would be 101! Thank you for taking me down that lane with your beautiful card - the ink blending, the 3 little sequins, and of course (as always) the matching envelope. It's all CAS perfection!

  8. Tara, your card is CAS perfection! I love the beautiful daffodil and the texture from the embossing is perfect! YOur Mom will cherish this card! Have a great weekend!

  9. Gorgeous card, Tara! I love the blended layer which adds so much detail in keeping with the clean design. Just lovely!
