Daffodil Daydream and Sunny Sentiments by Stampin’ Up

Today, I am featuring both the Daffodil Daydream and Sunny Sentiments stamp sets. Both sets are by Stampin’ Up. I was challenged to make a card using the colors Calypso Coral, Shaded Spruce, and Just Jade.

Color challenges can be hard! Most of the time there is no Designer Series Paper that will meet the requirements. This was the case for me this month. I decided to make my own paper! Enjoy watching the video to learn how I made my card.

I love the scroll-type stamp from the Daffodil Dream stamp set. Additionally, the stamp allowed me to use any color I wanted to create a fun background! Together with the Sunny Sentiments stamp set, I was able to add my greeting easily. The bold, chunky fonts in the set were exactly what I needed to go with my dainty scrollwork.

Finally, I was able to add the adhesive-backed hexagons to compliment the modern design of my card. I love how funky and crisp my card turned out!

Two Daffodil Daydream and Sunny Sentiments Cards

This photo shows both my original card and the one that we made together on the video. My original photo shows the scroll stamping further apart. I can’t say I like one better than the other. Do you have a favorite?

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Daffodil Daydream by Stampin’ Up

You will find the Daffodil Daydream Bundle by Stampin’ Up in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog. This is a very large bundle! There are 24 pieces in the die set alone.

I like the stamp set but I LOVE the die set! The dies allow you to mix up colors and shapes to fit the style of your cards. For today’s card, I used a Very Vanilla card base along with a Flirty Flamingo layer. Next, I added some Designer Series Paper from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper Pack. Last but not least I added the daffodils I made from just a little bit of cardstock. Wow!

More Daffodil Daydream Cards

These cards were made using the Daffodil Afternoon DSP that was offered during Sale-A-Bration. I don’t usually use retired products for my video projects, but I thought I would go ahead and show you how you might use the paper.

This is a fun fold card that I made using the Daffodil Daydream Bundle as well. And I also used the Daffodil Afternoon DSP here as well. I decided to use one of the large stamped images to decorate my design. Additionally, I colored the flower using my Stampin’ Blend Markers.

I hope that you enjoyed the layout of today’s card. It is so easy and can be used with any paper, stamps, or dies. Please take it and see what other cards you are inspired to make. As always remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
