Daffodil Sentiments - Stampin' Up! Sentimental Park

   While I was (not so) patiently waiting for my mini catalog preorder to arrive I distracted myself from refreshing the tracking information constantly by playing along with the Just Us Girls color challenge.  It's blue, green and yellow this time and there is really sooooo much you can do with these colors.  Since I didn't have any Christmas stuff yet I went in the opposite direction and did a floral card with the Sentimental Park set.

  The Stampin' Up! colors I chose to use are Azure Afternoon, Daffodil Delight and Shaded Spruce.  My card front is first covered with a piece of Bright & Beautiful DSP in a pretty Azure Afternoon color wash pattern.

  Then I embossed a piece of Basic White with the Cane Weave embossing folder.  I edged the one side with a strip of Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer paper.  This paper carried over into the Annual Catalog from the spring mini so definitely check it out if you missed it the first time around.  You get a white, Balmy Blue and Shaded Spruce sheet in each pack and they are 12x12 so a lot of bang for the buck.  And it's so pretty for some subtle detail!

  Next I stamped the stem/leaves and die cut it and backed it with a Shaded Spruce scalloped circle.  The flower out lines are all stamped in Daffodil Delight and then filled in with the 2 step stamp with Daffodil Delight ink but stamped-off once.  They are all the die cut.  The small flowers are from the coordinating Petal Park stamp set.

  Some Azure Afternoon Sheer ribbon is added to the back of the circle and then the whole thing is popped on dimensionals.  The flowers are added to the circle also with dimensionals and the rest are sprinkled down the card on a diagonal.

  The sentiment from Sentimental Park is stamped in Azure Afternoon and die cut with the detailed rectangle die in the Timeless Arrangements die set.  And there you have a cheerful, floral birthday card ready to be mailed out!

  All of the current products used to make this card can be order in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
