Daffodil Delight

Hi everyone!  I'm really getting excited for our new house - just two more sleeps :)  In the meantime, I haven't packed up my Stampin' Up! stuff...I still need to make cards!  After all, it's my aunt's birthday tomorrow plus I would also like to make thank you cards for our super realtor and our dedicated banker! 

Here is something I made today - I haven't added a sentiment yet because I haven't decided who will get this one!  {Those are my favorite kind of cards to make!  You just design the outside, make it generic & when you need a special card for something, you pull it out & add a quick stamped sentiment to the inside! Custom cards - always in stock!}

This card uses the new colour Daffodil Delight as a background, Greenhouse Gala patterned paper and Daffodil ribbon.  The stamp is a single stamp called Ornate Blossom which coordinates with the Greenhouse Gala paper.  It's a really fun bold image to use with one ink colour (as I've done here) or colour pieces of it separately with markers to make a multi-coloured blossom.

My favorite little detail of this card is courtesy of the *NEW* Basic Pearls!  They come in a large sheet, with many pearls in 3 different sizes, as well as 3 strips of attached pearls.

I am also getting excited for my first Stampin' Up! party in my new house - for which my good friend Danica will be the hostess!  She's cashing in on a sweet August promotion from Stampin' Up - host a qualifying party this month and get extra $35 in free products! That's EXTRA, as in, over and above all the other free stuff hostesses always get!  

Contact me if you want to cash in on this promo too!
