Signs of spring are all over the place now and today’s card shows just which flowers I’m eagerly awaiting!

The You’re Inspiring stamp set was the perfect choice for my yearning for spring as well as completing the sketch from The Paper Players.

I used our Stampin’ Write Markers (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie) and an Aqua Painter for colour the daffodils.  TIP:  It’s best to used Thick Whisper White cardstock as it doesn’t pill while you are painting.

The greeting was stamped with Old Olive ink and then overstamped (using the retiring Stamp-a-ma-jig) with Versamark.  Then it was just a matter of adding a sprinkle of Clear Emboss powder and heat setting it.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  NOTE:  The Delightful Daisy designer series paper is not longer available.

Happy Stamping!
