Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun alternative way to use that FREE Daffodil Afternoon DSP from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog! While the Daffodil Afternoon DSP coordinates beautifully with the Daffodil Daydream Bundle, it’s always a plus to find alternative ways to use up your designer series paper! I chose one of the designs from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP that did not have daffodils on it and paired it with the large Daisy Garden stamp with sentiments from the Daisy Lane stamp set. Not only is this card easy to make, but it also makes two cards with just one Daisy Garden stamped image! Want to use up the whole 12” x 12” sheet of DSP? No problem! Just stamp the Daisy Garden image on three different pieces of cardstock!
For the card front base layer, I used this design from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 6” x 5 ½” and use your Stamparatus to stamp the Daisy Garden stamp in Mossy Meadow ink. *Tip-I find it much easier to use my Stamparatus for large stamps like this and background stamps. This way you can ensure that you have a nice and evenly stamped image. I used Light Calypso Coral and Dark Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends for the center of the daisies and then used the second largest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut out as shown:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. The die-cut Daisy Garden stamped image.
2. Use the largest layering Stitched So Sweetly Die to die-cut out of Pale Papaya cardstock, which will be layered under the above die-cut piece.
3. One Bumblebee Trinket.
4. Stamp the sentiment from Daisy Lane in Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and use the Double Oval Punch to punch out of the cardstock.
5. Use the scalloped Double Oval Punch to punch out of Mossy Meadow cardstock, which will be layered under the above punched out sentiment.
6. Use enough Gold Shimmer Ribbon to tie around the DSP base layer into a knot.
First tie the ribbon into a knot around the DSP base layer, adhere the layered stamped image with dimensionals, adhere the layered sentiment to the layered stamped image, and use a glue dot to adhere the Bumblebee Trinket. This completed piece is adhered to a Very Vanilla cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of the same DSP along the side as shown:
For the coordinating Very Vanilla medium envelope, use the single daisy stamp from Daisy Lane to stamp twice in Mossy Meadow ink:
Here is the second card using the second die-cut Daisy Garden piece:
Such an easy way to use up your DSP with products from the Annual Catalog! While I kept this card simple by only coloring in the daisy centers with Stampin’ Blends, you can easily color in everything. I did experiment with coloring in the daisies, stems, and leaves, but it just seemed a little too dark for me. But hey, that doesn’t mean you can’t try it! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! lol
