Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper for the Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is “Celebrate Spring”.  Have fun hopping around and seeing how everyone interpreted this theme.

Here is the card I created:

The Delightful Daisy DSP really shouts "SPRING" to me and all of my northern friends are sure wanting to celebrate spring's arrival!

My card base is Daffodil Delight. On top of that is a Tranquil Tide mat. I cut a panel of Whisper White and adhered a square of DSP to it. To hide the seam, I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon and used Scotch Tape to secure it to the back. Then I stamped "celebrate" from the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Daffodil Delight. I stamped the bee from Dragonfly Dreams using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Daffodil Delight. I then cut it out with the bee die from Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. I adhered it to the ribbon using a Mini Dimensional. 

On the inside, I stamped the bee and colored it in with my Daffodil Delight watercolor pencil. I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide. That, too, is from the Dragonfly Dreams set. Measurements and product used are listed below. (I used a lot of 16th's to exercise my brain! Use normal measurements if you want.

If you leave a question, I will try to answer as soon as possible. However, you will need to leave an email address as this blog apparently does not notify you that I have replied. If anyone knows how to remedy that, I'd appreciate knowing!
