Daffodil Daydream Abstract Beauty Card - Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Crafty Collaborations group and it's a Sketch Challenge, I love doing these, they are great to get your crafty mojo going if you don't know what to make. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of just jade card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", strip 1/2" x 5 7/8"
1 piece of dsp (Abstract Beauty) 1 1/2" x 5 7/8"
1 piece of contrasting dsp (Abstract Beauty) 2 1/2" x 5 1/2"
1 piece of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", a 2 1/2" circle for stamping
Daffodil Daydream stamp set
Celebrating You stamp set
Memento black ink
Daffodil Delight Stampin'Blends
Old Olive Stampin' Blends
Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends
Brass Butterflies
Adhesive Backed Hexagons
Layering Circle Dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose Adhesive


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

Adhere the top piece of dsp to the card front leaving an equal border at the top and sides.

Adhere the strip of dsp across the bottom of the card front covering the bottom of the top piece.

Stamp a sentiment in black ink on the strip of just jade and adhere to the card front covering the join between the two dsps.

Die cut a 2 1/2" circle from basic white and stamp the floral image in black and the colour with Stampin' Blends. Add dimensionals to the back and add to the card front.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining piece of basic white and add some butterflies and then clour them with Stampin' Blends and adhere to the inside of the card.

Add some of the brass butterflies to the sentiment strip on the card front and some of the hexagons at the top left and the card is finished. I hope that you like it.
