DeLovely Daffodil {MTSC75}


Hi everyone!  It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's sketches!!  I couldn't resist again this week and pulled out, well it actually sits front and center on my desk, Year of Flowers: Daffodils from Papertrey Ink.  Did I mention that I think this is one of the best sets I've ever ordered from Papertrey?  I did?  Well, I'm just reiterating it again!  I REALLY {heart} this set!



I paper pieced the daffodil using some new Cosmo Cricket DeLovely dp that I picked up the other day at my LSS.  This paper is really bright, but I think it's so pretty!  I paired it with what seems to be my new favorite Kraft cardstock.  I used to use Kraft every once in awhile, but I reach for it almost every time I make a card now!  I made the diamond pattern with my Scor-Pal, sponged the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper.  A ric rac border, some stitching and a button finished it off!

Don't forget to check out the other Muse's did with today's sketch!

This is a real stunner! Perfect choice of dp for the piecing. This PTI set has never worked its way onto my wish list, but your creations always make me think I need it!

OK Jackie.....I keep seeing your daffodils. After this card, you have made me put this set in my cart. The paper piecing is fantastic! Love how the flower hangs off the kraft cardstock! (I said something similar to the Blog Hop card too!)

Pam Varnell said...

There's that beautiful flower again girl. I freakin LOVE it. Gonna have to go check out the store now cause you keep being an enabler. STOP IT. LOL. Beautiful card sweetie.

Becky Carafa said...

Another beaut, Jackie! Love the piecing, and the colors are so springy! And yeah, I {heart} kraft too.

Kristina said...

Oooh, this is so gorgeous! I love how that daffodil is leaping off of the paper. Gorgeous paper piecing, as well. It may be bright, but that kraft and lemon tart calmed it right on down. I'm going to go back and stare at this one a little bit longer. :)
