Man, I am beat! I am so tired - its been a long couple of days (I am writing this on Thursday night and scheduling it for Friday morning - what I do with most of my posts!). On the plus side my craft room is looking amazing! I think its the tidiest its EVER been - and we've only lived here for a year and 8 months - whoops! Ive still got bits to do and tidy and organise my storage systems and stuff but its getting there!

Now onto a card to share with you! Today's is another of the March card club series. Definitely very springtime - 

Easter Daffodils

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Peach Parfait
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz
Punches: 5 Petal Flower, Boho Blossoms, Decorative Label
Extras: Sponge, Embossing Stylus, Mat Pack

First we sponged the flowers with a little bit of Peach Parfait ink and then laying the punched flowers down on the mat pack we used the embossing stylus in the centre of the flowers to give a bit of shape to the flowers. Three strips of cardstock were laid down for the stalks and then the flowers added to the top (we put dimensionals under the yellow flowers to help it keep its shape! For the grass its just a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock that I snipped in to every couple of millimetres - after the entire thing was snipped in to I cut in at an angle to give it some varying height and a little more texture. I guess its similar to what a hair dresser does when they cut layers in your hair? The final thing to do was to stamp the sentiment, punch it out wit the decorative label punch and sponge. I just slipped it in under the grass and there you have it, one quick and simple Easter card!  

I hope you liked today's quick post. Come back tomorrow for another Simply Stampin' Challenge! 

Have a great day!

  1. LOVE how you made the daffodils! My girls are always picking these and making bouquets to decorate the house! Now I'll be able to make some paper ones for their scrapbooks! Adorable spring card!!

  2. Aw that's lovely - daffs always look so pretty around the house! I used to make bouquets to decorate the house all the time as a kid - we don't have any at our new house now. These will make super cute scrapbook decorations! x
