Daffodil Daydream is another stamp set that is retiring at the end of this month. I always loved this set because I love daffodils. They are usually one of the first flowers to pop up in the spring when we lived in Northern New York, giving me hope that the winter would be over soon. Usually, the only flower that beat them was the crocus which would sometimes be buried in snow so I don’t count it as a sign of spring flower.
I decided to pair the Daffodil Daydream stamp set and the Daffodil Dies with the Framed Florets dies. Framed Florets is another stamp set with dies that will be retiring at the end of April. It is too bad because I love the dies in this set. You can still purchase it until May 1st or when their inventory gets depleted (whichever comes first).
I first decided to stamp the daffodils in Memento Black Ink and color them with Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight Blends. Then I cut it out using the coordinating Daffodil Dies. Next, I cut out the two frames in Basic White and Granny Apple Green card stock. I layered them onto a piece of Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper (which is also retiring) and a Basic White card base. Then I layered the daffodils on top using Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Altenew. Lastly, I added some Glossy Dots (which are being carried over).
Have you noticed lately that I am using lots of embellishments? I don’t know why but I just forget about them. I moved them to a place I can see them now which reminds me to use them. It is a good trick if you have the same problem.
This is beautiful, Susan! I love the DSP and the frame with the daffodils. So fun! And thanks for the tip for remembering embellishments. I have that problem too. So sad to see the frames go, though.
