Stampin' Dreams - Florals Blog Hop

Time for the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the world who participate each month to share projects we are working on. Our theme this month is "Florals".  I had to use the amazing new Hello, Irresistible Suite from the March Online Exclusives.  

I had fun making this card on a recent Free Online Class that I host every Monday night at 7pm Pacific. Come join us - I share a card or a technique and you craft along using your own supplies.  Check Facebook or Instagram for the Zoom details!

Isn't this pretty in Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo!  It's a Window card that opens up to fun fold.


  1. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and Score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline with Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Lay on card base (do not adhere) and use 2nd largest circle from Stylish Shapes to cut circle through both layers.  Save circle that you cut out!
  4. Adhere Designer Series Paper to front of card aligning edges of opening.
  5. Cut "bracelet of pearls" from Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Cut out of cardstock using Paper Snips.
  6. Adhere around opening.
  7. Stamp flower on Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight using Versamark.

  20. Fold in half at 4" scoreline and burnish with Bone Folder
  21. Fold on 2 1/8" scoreline back towards the 4" scoreline.  Burnish with Bone Folder
  22. Adhere to the inside of the card so that the side with the flap faces the right side.  The inside of the card will fold out towards the right.
  23. Adhere the Designer Series Paper circle to the Daffodil Delight circle with the opposite side of the DSP facing out
  24. Fit the circle into the opening and adhere half of the circle to the Basic White flap.
