Friends and Flowers

I have a card to share this morning . . . I may have been inspired by how glorious it is outside today!  I hope the weather is gorgeous where ever you are today.  The image I picked for my card is an Impression-Obsession stamp from called Daffodil in the Sun.  How I love daffodils!!  This one colored up quickly with Tombow Markers and I popped up the heads of the daffodils and some of the leaves to give it some dimension.

I stacked the image on top of two sets of Spellbinders™ Labels Eight.  On the top set I also cut with Spellbinders™ Classic Rectangles LG and Spellbinders™ Classic Rectangles SM to create the matted frame.  I finished off with one my favorite tags for the sentiment – Spellbinders™ Tags Five – it always seems to fit just the right sized sentiment. I used some rub ons that fit the theme of the stamp for the sentiment.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Impression-Obsession from Stamper’s Dream – Daffodil in the Sun
Paper:  The Paper Company – Blonde Columns, K & Company
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder
Accessories: Spellbinders™ Labels Eight, Spellbinders™ Classic Rectangles LG, Spellbinders™ Classic Rectangles SM, Spellbinders™ Tags Five

Big hugs!!  I’ll be back tomorrow with something ;-)

    Love the “springy” card and the blue/yellow combination of colors. It’s raining here today, but we really need it. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful cards, Becca.ReplyCancel

    Those daffodils look like they are reaching for the warmth of the sun!

    It was sunny this morning here in northern Indiana, but the clouds have moved in – anticipating the needed rain soon.

    Thank you for sharing, Becca!ReplyCancel

    Becca, The daffodils are beautiful. This is such a lovely card as are all your creations. I always look forward to your posts.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca-
    Great card. I noticed you used your Tombow Markers instead of the Copic……………Was there a particular reason? The colors don’t seem as clear and springy as the copics would have. You always inspire me and I strive to figure out how you do what you do………I have become a better crafter thanks to you.

    Have a great weekend……….Belated wish to your hubby. You are a great couple……….

    Hi Becca, Very nice. I like that the daffodil comes over the frame a bit. Love all the layers too.
    Thanks for all the inspiration, both artful and spiritual, PattyC.ReplyCancel

    So beautiful, Becca! I love daffodils too and I so miss them since I moved to Arizona from Washington state. I loved visiting the fields in Skagit Valley in April where you saw acres and acres of blooming daffodils and tulips…a beautiful treat for the eyes!ReplyCancel

    LOVE this card! LOve the patterned paper (the blue is such a pretty shade). The daffodils are beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • DesireeApril 23, 2010 - 9:55 pm

    I have a question for you. I have been studying your picture and I can’t figure out how you nested the Labels 8 stacks so that the blue paper was (only slightly) bigger then the pattern paper. When I look at that set I don’t see how the labels would nest so closely. Could you explain that for me? I am feeling kind of confused. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • SandraApril 23, 2010 - 9:58 pm

    oh my, beautiful!
