Hey there! Today I have a card I created last month while on a stamping "binge". Do you ever do that? Have so many ideas in your head they just pour out? Once in a great while that happens for me. Inspired by a card I saw online, I've added personal touches to make it mine:
I started with an Early Espresso card base, adding a Whisper White layer embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder. I used a sponge dauber with Daffodil Delight ink to sponge directly on each large raised "dot". I wrapped with a piece of now-retiring Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon, tying in a knot before adhering to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
After cutting a Daffodil Delight bloom with the Botanical Builder Framelits, I sponged with Daffodil Delight ink. I added a Whisper White bloom punched with an Itty Bitty Accents Punch, and an It's My Party Enamel Dot. The whole bloom was added to the ribbon knot with glue dots, and the Mossy Meadow greenery, also cut with the Botanical Gardens framelits, were added with glue dots.
I stamped the Suite Sayings sentiment with Early Espresso on Daffodil Delight, punching each end with the Note Tag Punch, which is retiring. After sponging with Daffodil Delight I adhered over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I stamped the inside with another Suite Sayings Sentiment and sponged the edges of the Whisper White layer with Daffodil Delight.
Botanical Builders Framelits have four different sizes of blooms to choose from, so I cut a small one from Daffodil Delight, sponged with Daffodil Delight ink, then added with a glue dot. I cut the leaf with a Botanical Builders Framelit, adding it and the white center punched with the Tree Builder Punch, with glue dots. I finished the center with another It's My Party Enamel Dot.
