Welcome to week 15 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Daffodil Delight, a bold yellow from the Brights colour collection.

I really wanted to make a daffodil card for our Daffodil Delight blog hop, however as we only use current Stampin’ Up! products in these blog hops and I didn’t have any daffodil stamps, punches or dies. It was time to get creative.

I’m not sure just how botanically correct my daffodils are, so please allow me some artistic licence!

For the embossed Whisper White layer of my card front, I’ve deliberately inked my embossed brick wall darker in some places than others, applying both Crumb Cake and Garden Green with a blending brush to give a more realistic effect.

There are two sizes of daffodils on this card. For the back layer of the larger daffodil I punched two leaves in Daffodil Delight from the Strawberry Builder Punch. I them removed the leaf stems and overlapped the dies when gluing them together.

The middle layer of the large daffodil is die cut in Daffodil Delight using the small double flower dies from the Cherry Blossom Dies. The Pumpkin Pie circle in the centre of the flower is punched with a standard sized hole punch for ring binders.

The two smaller daffodils use the flower die from Birds & More as the background layer and the triple flower die from Pierced Blooms for the middle layer, both cut from Daffodil Delight. The Pumpkin Pie flower centre is punched using the deer nose in the Deer builder punch.

Stems and leaves are die cut from Garden Green card stock using the stem die from Pierced Blooms dies and the offcuts from the circle wreath die in the Painted Labels dies. The cute little pot was stamped in Crumb Cake using a stamp from the Plentiful Plants stamp set and then die cut from Crumb Cake card stock using the coordinating Perfect Plants Dies.

I’ve recently acquired the Artistically Inked bundle and just couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous “hello” sentiment to the front of the card – isn’t this font so eye catching? I die cut it out with one of the Tasteful Labels dies.

My final touch was a Bumblebee trinket. I’ve been hoarding these – it’s time I started adding these adorable embellishments to my cards!

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Rachel Woollard – I can’t wait to see what she’s made this week!
