Stampin Friends April 2022 Blog Hop - All About the Flowers!

Welcome to Stampin Friends Blog Hop! It is All about Flowers For Aprils Blog Hop!  We are getting ready here for the flower season are you?  After all, April showers bring May flowers!

 If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Barb’s blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Jo’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.


I just love this time of year....the drabby winter months are slowly going away, making the way for sunshine and mother nature waking everything up again.  The trees are filling their branches, the grass is growing and most importantly, the flowers are blooming! So, with this we decided to focus on flowers for this blog.  My projects consist of another "gift set" that can be given as a birthday gift for spring time. Of course there is a greeting card, along with a small jar of loose leaf tea. I had a really fun time putting my projects together and hope you enjoy them.

For my projects I used a very new suite that will be in the NEW Stampin' Up! catalog which should be in hands by now!  If it is not, don't worry it will be there very soon!  The suite I used is called Hues of Happiness.  I just love how Stampin' Up! makes sure some of their DSP images can be die cut out with the coordinating die set!  When you have a busy month like I did, it makes it easy to create a master piece in no time at all!

Products Used: 

  Happiness Abounds Bundle

  Hues of Happiness 12" x 12" DSP

  Daffodil Delight Card Stock

  Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots

Simple Card Instructions:

  1. The card base is made with daffodil delight card stock.  I then layered a piece of DSP from Hues of Happiness.
  2. For my next layer, I first die cut the velum with the texture die from the Blossoming Happiness Die Set.
  3. On top pf the velum I adhered two strips of DSP (this paper is so beautiful, I wanted to show of as much of it as possible).
  4. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in black on basic white card stock and die cut out one of the larger flowers from the DSP, along with some leaves. I added a rustic metallic adhesive-back dot to the center of the flower.

Simple Gift Instructions:

I used a simple spice jar to hold my loose leaf tea and prettied it up using more of the Hues of Happiness DSP.

  1.   The first thing I did is wrap a strip of DSP around the jar. Then I added a thin strip of daffodil delight card stock, which I die cut the top using the "note book" die from the Happiness Die Set. (Unfortunately, I just realized you can not see this in any of the pictures, but trust me it is so cute!)
  2. I added the same flower and leaves from the card to cover up the seams. 
  3. In the center of the flower I also added a rustic metallic adhesive-back dot. Just an FYI, just because the flower is cut off on the DSP, it can still be used.  The flower used here was on the edge of the DSP so no need to cut a whole flower in half to get the effect that I wanted!
  4. I then added a smaller flower from the DSP to the top of the lid, along with more leaves.

I hope you enjoyed my All About Flowers card and project!  Don’t forget, comments of any kind (well hopefully nice ones, lol) are greatly appreciated. 
When you are done here be sure to hop on over to Jo’s Blog.
