Happy Easter, Happy Spring!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is quick and easy Easter Card featuring the Timeless Tulips stamp set, the Lovely You stamp set, and the (retired) Daffodil Afternoon DSP! The inspiration behind today’s card is for those of you that do not have the coordinating Daffodil Daydream Bundle but did earn the Daffodil Afternoon DSP during Sale-A-Bration. It is so easy to coordinate a stamp set or bundle with the designer series paper, so I wanted to pair the Daffodil Afternoon DSP with stamp sets that you may already have on hand. The best way to do this, is by simply pairing sentiments with a design that does the work for you! Then all you need to add is some ribbon, embellishments, and a little sparkle with Rose Gold Metallic Paper! This is a quick and easy way to not only make six cards, but also use up the designer series paper!

The base layer is this design from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. Since I made six of these cards, I cut the 12” x 12” sheet of DSP into six 4” x 5 ¼” base layers and six ¾” x 4” strips for the inside of the card:

For the card front, you will need:

1. On Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Polished Pink ink and used the small flower stamp from Lovely You to stamp in Pale Papaya ink, stamping off once first. This is die-cut out with the smallest circle die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

2. Use the larger circle die from the Tasteful Labels Dies to die-cut out of the Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.

3. Cut about a 6” piece of the Petal Pink ribbon from the Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack.

4. You will need three of the 4mm Very Vanilla Polished Dots, not pictured.

I adhered the two circle layers together and folded the ribbon into a loop, adhering this to the back of the layered die-cut circles. I used dimensionals to adhere the ribbon/die-cut circles piece to the DSP base layer, placed the Polished Dots in the center of the flowers as shown (I pointed them out since they didn’t show up very well in the picture), and then adhered this completed piece to an Evening Evergreen cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Polished Pink ink, stamp the small flower stamp from Lovely You in Pale Papaya ink (stamping off once first), and adhere the opposite side design from the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

For the coordinating Very Vanilla envelope, I kept is simple and stamped the flower stamp from Lovely You in the corner in Pale Papaya ink three times (without reinking):

A great way to make a “simple” card for Easter! If you are wondering why I chose to use Polished Pink and Petal Pink when these are not listed as the colors for the DSP, that is to me the small flowers didn’t really look like Flirty Flamingo or Pale Papaya but closer to Polished Pink and Petal Pink. I also used the small flower from Lovely You as an accent stamped image because it was a pretty close in comparison!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
