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!

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!

Sunny Sentiments

I love the Sunny Sentiments Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! It features large, bold sentiments that are useful and fun. The fonts are chunky and they stand out. The sentiments are words that you would actually say to someone.

If you are a beginning stamper trying to build your supplies, this is a set you should purchase. It is easy to stamp and the greetings will cover most of the cards you will make.

Did you like today’s card layout? It is so easy and fun! I like that you can make it just like it is or build on that by adding layers and embellishments. Additionally, I do enjoy a black and white card on occasion. They are sleek.

More Sunny Sentiments Cards

Look what flipping over the same paper does! It’s an entirely different look and vibe. And all from a small piece of paper. Remember this layout when you need to make multiple cards at one time. This layout would be a lifesaver. It would be great to use when making your holiday cards.

Look at that stunning black sentiment! Your eyes can’t help but be drawn to it. The recipient of this card will not miss the message that you intend to relay.

Here is another great layout! It is also easy. You can change to look easily by adding a layer or changing the color of your card base. You could use any paper that you have in your stash.

I hope that you found today’s card layouts useful. My goal is to produce a wide variety of ideas for all levels of crafters. As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative.
