Stampin’ Up Daffodil Afternoon Pattern Paper

Hello Everyone – my focus this week is the Stampin’ Up Daffodil Afternoon Pattern Paper you can get for Sale-a-bration.

I hope you are staying warm and dry on this chilly rainy/snowy day depending on where you are. On this rainy/snowy day how would you like some inspiration for a card? I like to work with bright flowers on dreary days to cheer me up. I chose a piece of pattern paper from one of the papers you can get for free with a qualifying order. Look at how I used it with a die cut for a pretty card.

The Stampin' Up Daffodil Afternoon pattern paper has some great flower images.  I love the fact that you can use dies you already have to create with this bright, fun paper.

I saw a card by Tina Wardell on Pinterest that used the same paper I used with the Tulips dies and I loved the layout. I do not have the dies they use so I decided to check out my dies and see if I had something I could use instead. The Meadows dies has several flower dies cuts that are fun to play with.

I thought one of the dies reminded me of the daisy flower in the paper so chose to use it. I cut it out and then blended on some color. I love how the colors have varying hues from the way I blended on the color.

When you cut the die from your card stock, the outline that is left makes the perfect stencil. I used it to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope.

I am always looking for what I already own to use with new products.  The Stampin' Up Daffodil Afternoon pattern paper has some great flower images.  I found the perfect die to use with is in the Meadows dies collection.

This is one of my favorite dies to design with. I used it with some other pattern paper for this fun card. These dies are also perfect for creating a cluster of flowers for your card front.
