Daffodil Daydream

Today I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of some of the items in the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I’ve chosen the Daffodil Daydream bundle for my card.

Inspiration

One question I am frequently asked is where I find inspiration. CASEing is a good way to get inspired. There are many definitions for CASE, including Copy and Steal Everything, Copy and Share Everything, and my favorite, Copy and Selectively Edit.

Our catalog is a great place to find inspiration, and I will frequently CASE a project from the current Annual Catalog or Mini. But, CASEing your own projects will work just as well.

For this project, I decided to CASE one of my own cards. I made a Christmas card that a lot of people seemed to like, so I decided to use that as my inspiration for today’s project. You can find that Christmas card here.

Amazing Daffodil Daydream

I used The Daffodil Daydream Bundle from the upcoming mini catalog. I also used the Daffodil Afternoon 12×12 DSP and Special Moments stamp set from the upcoming Sale-a-bration brochure. You can get both of these items FREE with a qualifying order next month.

The Special Moments stamp set has TWENTY-ONE greetings! There’s something for almost any occasion.

For this card, I used a Pear Pizzazz card base (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″). The layer is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Mossy Meadow, with a 2″ x 4″ piece of DSP adhered to the bottom. Then, I attached a piece of the Fine Art Ribbon across the “seam”, and adhered the panel to the card base.

I stamped the daffodil in Memento Tuxedo Black on Vanilla, colored with Blends, and cut it out using the coordinating die from the Daffodil Daydream bundle. I also cut a scalloped panel from Vanilla using one of the dies from the Scalloped Contours Dies.

I cut a hole into a piece of scrap computer paper using a die from the Hippo & Friends Dies to create a “mask”. Then, I used temporary adhesive to hold this in place on the scalloped panel, while using a Blending Brush to add a little Pear Pizzazz ink.

Once the mask was removed, the greeting was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink and the panel was popped up on the Mossy Meadow/DSP panel.

The daffodil is also popped up with dimensionals, and I added Wink of Stella to the flower for a little sparkle. Of course, no project is really complete without a little bling, so I added a few metallic pearls to finish it off.
