The Daffodils are Up!! KSS

I hope that you will agree with me that good things are worth the wait! Today's card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps features two of their newest sets being released today. Spring Daffodils Multi Step Clear Stamps is a delightful set that includes the frog and the dragonfly along with the group of daffodils. The new sentiment set, Words 4 Celebrating Clear Stamps has an awesome blend of words that can be mixed and matched in so many creative ways!! And who doesn't love that gorgeous script font? 

In addition to these two new sets, I also used an old favorite: Basket Multi Step Clear StampsYou know I love putting things in baskets (like mistletoe) as seen here. And of course, my go to grass is from Honey Bunny Multi Step Clear Stamps.

I do use the MISTI which allows for perfect restamping with my layered stamps.

I am entering this card in The Paper Players PP396 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne  Animal Antics.


For my color recipes I list the layers in the order I stamped them along with the color.

Color Recipe for the Daffodils:

Layer 4 Stampin' Up More Mustard
Layer 3 Memento Dandelion (stamped 3 times)
Layer 2 PTI Lemon Tart
Layer 1 Stampin' Up Barely Banana

Color Recipe for the Leaves and Stems:

Layer 1 Stampin' Up Certainly Celery (stamped 2 times)
Layer 2 Memento Bamboo Leaves (stamped 2 times)
Layer 3 Memento Olive Grove (stamped 2 times)

Layer 2 Stampin' Up Creamy Caramel

The designer paper is Dots and Plaid by Echo Park.
The die cut hand is by Impression Obsession.
The die cut bracelet is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I added a tiny rhinestone for a ring and a couple of strips
of grosgrain ribbon to finish off the card.

Using the same papers and color recipes I created this card for today's 

Sketch Challenge 700 over on Splitcoaststampers.




In addition to these two wonderful sets, Kitchen Sink Stamps is also
releasing Multi Step Enchanted Dogwood today.

    1. Thanks, Jeanette! This design came to me in my dreams last week, and I was going to use it for a card. But then I thought, "No, this would fit the new daffodils beautifully," so I saved it for today!

  4. Lynn, both of your cards are so beautiful and creative! For the first card, I love the daffodils in the basket appearing to be handed to the lovely frog. The addition of the hands is fantastic! For the second card, I love your response to the sketch challenge. The row of daffodils are gorgeous. I need to find that on SCS! BTW, thank you immensely for stopping by and commenting on my card! I greatly appreciate it! Hugs!

  5. Lynn, Your cards are so inspiring! The 3 arched window filled with daffodils is fabulous! But, I just can't get over the details with your adorable card at the top! I have to ask about the lovely hand offering my frog the basket of daffodils ... I am assuming that is a die cut? Did you paint her nails and give her a ring? Brilliant!!!

    1. The hand is a die cut from Impression Obsession, and I used a Copic marker to add the fingernails. The ring is a tiny rhinestone.

      I can't tell you just how much I love the daffodils and the sentiment set! I created 10 church cards this afternoon using one arched window and the sentiment "With Love for my Friend."

      How lucky am I to have such an amazing and talented artist as yourself sharing her gifts with me and all the rest of the stamping world? Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  6. Love the daffodils Lynn. I have never used thr Kitchen Sink Stamps. I've been Leary to try multi stamping 1st because of the $$. I'm afraid I'll spend it and then find out I don't like it. But YOU do a fabulous job with these stamps. Beautiful cards. Maybe some day I'll splurge on a set and give it a try.

    1. Susan, do you have a MISTI or a stamping platform of some kind? If so, you will do very well. I would suggest starting out with an inexpensive set like the $8 bluebonnet to see what you think!

      Thank you so much for the kind things you have said about my multi layer stamping. It is my favorite type of stamping and probably why I don't care much for coloring. Multi layer stamping takes 1/4 the time and a "real" artist has decided where the shading needs to be.
