Spring Fling Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Team Stamp It Spring Fling Blog Hop!  I am happy to share with you my Spring creation using the You’re Inspiring Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog!

For my project, I created this card set complete with box and 4 cards and envelopes.

Cards, Spring, Easter, You're Inspiring, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the cards, I stamped the daffodils on a piece of 2 1/2″ x 3″ piece of Thick Whisper White using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   These were colored with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends markers.   The corners were rounded using the Corner Rounder on the Envelope Punch Board.  Black Baker’s Twine was tied around the bottom of the panel.

This was mounted on the leaf print pattern from the Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper pack that is 2 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ with the corners rounded.

The Base of the card is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and folded with a bone folder.   The sentiment is stamped in the lower right corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Cards, Spring, Easter, Birthday, You're Inspiring, Stamipin' Up!, SU!

I did 2 of each sentiment.  I think I prefer the longer bow on the birthday card.

Now the box.

To make the box top:

  1. Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White 7 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.
  2. Score at 1 1/4″ and 7 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  3. Rotate 90 degrees and score at 3 1/8″ and 4 3/8″ on the 7 1/2″ side.
  4. Cut on the 3 1/8″ and 4 3/8″ score lines on the 7 1/2″ side to form tabs.
  5. Stamp the front panel with the Daffodils in Memento Black Ink.
  6. Color with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
  7. Fold on all score lines.
  8. Adhere the tabs to the back panel using Tear & Tape.
  9. Place Tear & Tape on the front tabs and adhere to the back tabs to make lid.

For the Bottom:

  1. Cut a piece of Old Olive Card Stock 8 3/8″ x 9″.
  2. Score at 1 1/4″ and 7 1/8″ on the 8 3/8″ side.
  3. Rotate 90 degrees and score at 3 and 4 1/4″ on the 9″ side.
  4. Cut on the 3 and 4 1/4″ score lines to the score lines on both sides to form tabs.
  5. Use Tear & Tape to adhere tab to back (longer panel).
  6. Use Tear & Tape to adhere the front tabs (short panel) to the back tabs.
  7. Use Paper Snips to cut at an angle the side tabs from the front panel to the back panel.
  8. Place lid on top.

  1. #stampitcontest – when I see jonquils popping their heads out of the ground I know spring is near – Thanks for the reminder that with patience it will return again – Pretty card !!!

  2. Love your daffodils!! Your variety of beautiful cards with this stamp set is inspiring to use this set next!!!

  3. I agree with you, I like the longer bow on the card. I also love the added touch of the little butterfly.

  4. Love this card & the box. Daffodils always make me think of Spring, & since we have probably more than 2′ of snow in our yard still, it will probably be a long time before we get to see any sign of Spring. So, thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you! Yes, we just got hit with quite a bit of snow, too – so a little spring in crafting is a happy thought!
