Another new set from the new January-June Mini Catalog using Daffodil Daydream


  • Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set works great alone, but also has dies
  • New Birthday Kit from the Kit Collection - Light The Candles Kit 
  • Final Day to order Kisses & Hugs January Paper Pumpkin Kit
I couldn't wait to use the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set when I saw it in the the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog that recently launched.  It's part of a bundle with an enormous set of dies, but I wanted to highlight just the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set to show you it works wonderfully alone without the coordinating  Daffodil Dies.  You can find this on page 37 of the new catalog.   I'll show the coordinating dies in an upcoming post, but today I wanted to showcase the beautiful daffodils.  I also used the new Gingham Embossing Folder on one of the background layers.  And I added accent using the Painted Label Dies.  I used A color combination of Daffodil Delight (of course), and Basic Black and Basic White.  the Daffodils are easily colored using Blends markers.  The stamp set also includes these small butterflies, which I Hand cut, colored with Stampin' Blend alcohol-based markers and added them to my card front.  

Floral Handmade Easter card using Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set

The basecard for this card is Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic Black Cardstock , followed by another layer of Daffodil Delight dry embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder.

The image layer is Basic White with a thin border of Basic Black along the left edge of the Whisper White.  The bottom of the Whisper White image layer includes a die cut from the Painted Labels Dies.  The edges of the image layer include Doilies from the Heart and Home Doilies set.  One side of the doilies are either Basic Gray, Cinnamon Cider, or Misty Moonlight.  The reverse side of all three doily colors is white, which is what I used for this card. 
Cards for Mother's Day or Easter using the Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set

The daffodil image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored with light and dard Daffodil Delight Blends and light and Dark Granny Apple Green Blends.  I then stamped the sentiments onto a die cut Basic white label bordered with Basic Black.  I stamped the butterflies in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored them with Daffodil Delight Blends also before popping them up on Mini Dimensionals and adding them to the card.  In hindsight, I could have used a smaller sentiment shape to allow more of the Daffodil stems to show.  That's how we learn.

The Kisses & Hugs kit is not bound to just Valentine's Day.  It works for all love occasions year-round like anniversaires, weddings, birthdays, or those "just because" days.  Gold Foil accents, heart-shaped base cards, and this kit includes a Gray Granite Classic Stampin' Spot.

And, beginning 25 January, if you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can purchase coordinating treat boxes that include 20 mini treat boxes and 20 heart tags, plus gold cord.   If treat packaging isn't your jam this month, the components of this kit are extremely versatile, allowing you to explore other crafting opportunities of your own.

You're Inspiring stamp set is perfect for Easter cards

  • Easter card using You're Inspiring Stamp Set
  • March 18 Card Class still has seats
  • Select a free Sale-A-Bration gift with a $50 or $100 order 

You're Inspiring

I love shades of green.  Always have.  Always will.  Green sets off the yellow in the daffodils in the Stampin' Up! You're Inspiring set.  This year's catalog includes so many great shades of green, and I love how they all work together to create such beautiful projects.  

Today I pulled out one of the 6' X 6" sheets in the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stacks.  Looking at it I saw it worked with Old Olive and with Pear Pizzazz.  Adding a yellow element just worked with these colors.  For today's card, I used a basecard of Pear Pizzazz and then a layer of Old Olive, and then a layer of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper in shades of green.  

I then die cut a Lots of Labels shape and an Layering Ovals shape.  I stamped the daffodils in Tuxedo Black Memento, and used Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Blends markers to color the image. 

I love banner sentiments and found a banner outline in the Blooming Love stamp set.  I used a banner die from the Large Number set to die cut the banner. after stamping the Happy Easter sentiment from the You're Inspiring set.  

After I assembled the layers, I added a Pear Pizzazz ribbon and three different sizes of the Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dots.  I can't wait to make more of these cards.  I love how it turned out, and this is a card I know someone will be happy to receive.
