Daffodil Daydream - Sunshine and Rainbows - Gingham Card

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have made a card using the beautiful new Daffodil Daydream stamp set for the Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop where we are showing off some of the lovely new products coming in the Mini Catalogue which goes live on 4th January 2022.  Let me show you what I did.


1 piece of thick basic white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 /4"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for die cutting
1 piece of dsp (Sunshine & Rainbows) 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scalloped Contour dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Gingham Embossing Folder
Daffodil Daydream stamp set
Watercolour Pencils
Blender Pen
Celebrating You stamp set
Memento Black ink
Brushed Brass Butterflies
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder


On the long side score the thick basic white at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Run the dsp through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine in the Gingham Embossing Folder and adhere to the front of the card.

Stamp the daffodil image on a piece of scrap card and colour in with watercolour pencils and a blender pen or Stampin' Blends if you have them. I've used the pencils in daffodil delight, crushed curry and garden green.

Cut out the image using the 3rd smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour dies.  Cut out the smallest one too and then stamp the sentiment using memento black ink in the centre of it.

Add both rectangles to the card front so that they line up underneath each other.  Add some of the butterlies and then stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card.

I do hope that you like my first play with this stamp set, it comes with a set of dies as well but I haven't tried those yet, watch this space because I will be using them in a project very soon.
