Daffodils, Springtime and Cards

You're Inspiring Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends!  Hello Spring!

It's official, the first of spring is Tuesday, March 20.  What do you think of when you think of spring?  For me daffodils kissed by the sun are a sure sign that spring has arrived, so when I saw the You're Inspired stamp set with its pretty daffodils I simply couldn't resist.

Daffodil Card Tips & Tricks

I watercolored my daffodils with Wild Wasabi and So Saffron inks and my blender pen.  I colored a few extra daffodils to make a fuller bouquet.  Then, I fussy cut them.

For the look of sunshine, I painted my daffodils with my Wink of Stella Pen and added a few Tutti-Frutti sequins.

My background was done with embossing paste and Pattern Party Decorative masks.  Then, I cut a Whisper White square with my Stitched Shapes dies for a white on white background.

What your favorite sign of spring?  Is it daffodils bobbing their heads in the warm spring sunshine?

You're Inspiring Stampin' Up!

It's easy to change up the sentiment with the Classic Label punch.  Simply stamp and punch.   The You're Inspiring stamp set offers 5 versatile sentiments.

This week's Splitcoast Stampers Challenge colors are So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist.  The dessert option is Spring or Easter.  Hope on over to Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge to join the fun.

Here in Ohio, the daffodils haven't started blooming quite yet, but they are peeking through the ground.  The snowdrops on the other hand are gaily bobbing their heads up through the snow.

You're Inspiring Stampin' Up!

Are you as ready for spring as I am?  To me patches of pretty yellow daffodil dancing in the wind is a sure sign that spring has arrived.  So when I saw the You're Inspiring stamp set with its pretty daffodil images, I knew that it was a must have stamp set.  They are quite therapeutic to color especially this time of year.  I can almost smell their sweet fragrance as I color.

Coloring on Glossy Designer Paper

Springtime Foil Paper's Glossy Surface is a dream to Color.  Here's a few Coloring Tips.

Flicking strokes yield much better results than a circular motions with the glossy surface.

I tried coloring with both Stampin' Blends (Alcohol Based Markers) and ink pads and was equally please with the results.

The Calypso Coral flowers were colored and blended with Stampin' Blends.  It's especially import to use flicking motions when blending on glossy paper.  The colors also look darker and richer on glossy paper.  The blends  dry very quickly, which is nice for adding multiple layers of color.

The leaves were colored with Emerald Envy Ink and a blender pen.  To add depth to my coloring, I went back and added a second and sometimes third layer of color leaving some spaces lighter than others.

Note: These vibrant colors looked especially good with the Rose Gold foil!
