Cheerful Daisies Birthday Card - Stamping With Friends Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

The theme for this hop is the New Annual Catalogue which is full of exciting new things to play with. I've chosen to use the Cheerful Daisies bundle and teamed it with Subtles dsp stack in Bubble Bath which is one of the new Core Colours and is very pretty and combined it with an old favourite, Melon Mambo.


1 piece of Melon Mambo card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scraps for the flowers
2 pieces of basic white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", scraps for the flowers and sentiment
1 piece of Subtles dsp in Bubble Bath 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
Cheerful Daisies stamp set
Cheerful Daisies dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Basic Rhinestones
Melon Mambo ink
Bubble Bath ink
Nature's Prints stamp set
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose Adhesive


On the long side score the Melon Mambo at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere one piece of the basic white to the card front and then add the dsp layer to that.

Die cut the clump of three flowers in Basic White, then die cut the solid flowers and the intricate tops of those flowers in Melon Mambo to add some more depth and interest. You can cut all the layers in just one colour but I thought I would try two to see what it looked like and I have to say that I like it. Die cut two of the twiggy pieces.

Snips the white flowers apart carefully to make three separate flowers, then add the white layer to the solid melon mambo pieces and then add the intricate melon mambo pieces over the top. They are really easy to line up so that they match.

Add dimensionals to the back of the flowers and arrange them on the card front, make sure you leave enough space below them for your sentiment.  Tuck in the twiggy bits around them, split them apart to make smaller bunches if you like.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of white and then die cut using the label sentiment from this die set and add to the card front using dimensionals.

On the remaining piece of white, stamp a sentiment in the centre and add a flower to the bottom right corner. This is a two step stamp and I have used Bubble Bath as the solid layer and added Melon Mambo for the detail.  Adhere to the inside of the card.

Sprinkle some rhines stones on the card front and the card is complete.
