Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper is Big and Bold

Daisies and Big Bold Butterfly 

I'm so torn, today, that its hard to focus.  Rather than blog, I'm torn between being outside with my dog, Cookie, enjoying the wonderful weather, the blooming flowers, the soft breeze and the setting sun through the 60 to 70 foot pine tree forest across the street from our home.  But I'm also torn because I want to play in my craft room with the exciting new products that arrived yesterday.  Its all unpacked and organized, yet I keep pulling out the new paper packs and looking at new designs that I missed when I looked at the catalog  photos.  Then I'm torn because I want to finish this post showing you this dramatic, bold card I created with some of the pre-order products.   AHHHHHH!  

I know I really shouldn't complain, because I get to do some of each.  Ever want to split yourself into thirds so you can do everything as long as you want to.  (...wasn't there an old movie where someone cloned themselves so they could be everywhere they needed to be and get everything done that they needed or wanted to get done... I'll think of it later.)

The big, bold daisies on the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, a new DSP from the 2017-2i018 catalog coming June 1, begged for a big, bold butterfly.   This beautiful butterfly die from the Butterflies Thinlit set adds just the right drama to the new Delightful Daisy paper.

The colors in the Delightful Daisies Designer Series Paper are Daffodil Delight and Old Olive, so I chose a basecard is Old Olive.   

I used the largest die from the Butterflies Thinlit die set to cut a Daffodil Delight detailed butterfly to accent the face of this card. I rolled the wings lightly around a marker to give the butterfly a bit of dimension.  I also added dimensionals to the body of the butterfly to lift it off the page slightly.  


This card also showcases the new Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon, another sneak peek from the 2017-2018 catalog available June 1. 

I used a sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set--also new-- on a label created using the Rose Garden Thinlit and a border from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  The sentiment and border is stamped in Old Olive ink.

The body of the butterfly is accented with four basic pearls. 

This card really makes me smile.  There's something about Daffodil Delight that leaves me grinning with pleasure whenever I use it.   


Who wouldn't want to receive this card?  It just say, "Smile!" "Happy Spring!" or "Enjoy the Sunshine!"   You'll want to add the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers to your new catalog Wish List to order on June 1.  The wonderful designs below are all included in this paper pack.
