Expressions & Daffodils Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Woo Hooo … the weekend is finally here and so is another fab card share from the Daffodil Daydream bundle. Are you enjoying it so far? Today’s card highlights our daffodils and I teamed it up with the stunning Expressions in Ink Designer paper. I am really excited to share this card with you today ….

The daffodil look so pretty against this designer paper. I have a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Gold Foil mat behind the designer paper and the daffodils to make the “golds” pop on this card. I die cut the daffodil mat from the center of my main mat … paper saving!

Now let’s get down to the flowers… they are stamped with VersaMark on Basic White cardstock and heat embossed with gold. Once embossed, I knew I wanted to leave the outer petals white and the trumpet yellow. I used the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to lay the base of color, then I added some of the Dark Daffodil Delight.

To give more depth to the trumpet I added just a hint of Light Pumpkin Pie … then blended it again with the Light Daffodil Delight. I used Stampin’ Blends to color so it had that “watercolor” look that is highlighted in the Expressions in Ink Designer Paper. The stems and leaves were blended the same way using the Old Olive Combo pack, and the Light Soft Succulent. The Soft Succulent added the “bluish-green” tints you see in the designer paper.

To finish off my flowers I added Wink of Stella to the white petals … you can see it in the photos but it is even more stunning to they eye!

My greeting is stamped in Old Olive and comes from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I tied my bouquet and greeting together with the beautiful Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon…. another reason I added the Soft Succulent to the greenery on this card. I finished it off with the Gilded Gems, wow … that really ties the entire card together and adds even more dimension and texture. Love it!
