introducing daffodil

This month’s Paint-a-Flower is a lovely daffodil set. There’s a few sentiments included with not one but two floral arrangements featuring daffodils. Of course, you can purchase this 4×6 stamp set on its own, or sign up for the monthly subscription at a discount!


border layout revisited

A few weeks ago, I did this project for a stamp & die release. It was a real big hit! Everyone commented how they liked that I turned the Blossom Wreath into a border. Well… you can do the same thing with the PAF Daffodil! I took the floral spray image and stamped it sideways in the center, then stamped parts of the same spray on the top and the bottom to make a complete border. I added in the same watercolor blob to help the cut sentiment stand out.

For a real casual look, I started with some messy watercolor over the heat embossed border. Then, I came back with some extra detail to help give some dimension.

detailed messy watercolor

The watercolor technique I used to create this card is something I call detailed messy watercolor. It’s an interesting look that will keep you stress-free as you can paint outside the lines!

  1. Love this stress free style of watercolor and you card is beautiful showcasing this daffodil design so well!

  2. I like your idea of turning different configurations of florals into borders. I also like your detailed messy watercoloring! Thank you for the ideas.

  3. Thank you so much for the tutorial. The first thing I thought when I saw your card was “How exactly did she do that?” I love the look, but am fairly new to watercolor, especially no-line! Beautiful card. Love how you did the border, as well!

  4. Such a blissful palette of summer – absolutely perfect for your sentiment. Love being able to stretch stamps into creating more than originally intended. A lovely card indeed.

  5. Love the water coloring lesson you have given. It makes it so much easier to see it done. Now I think I can try it! Love how it turned out!

  6. Your use of this stamp as a vertical border is wonderful. I enjoyed the video and you presentation of how you colored the project. Colors are “happy colors” and put a smile on my face and I loved your nail polish that complements your color vision.

  7. Thanks for showing this technique. I love loose looking watercolour & I like the patch of green watercolour under the sentiment. Such a pretty card!

  8. Beautiful card and awesome looking technique. I do better with the watercolor brush pens so I think I’ll try that.

  9. Gorgeous colors on your card. I really like how you emphasized the sentiment with adding the background swirl just underneath the sentiment only, it really made it stand out. I will have to try that idea on one of my cards. Thank you for sharing your ideas and talent with us. I really look forward to these blogs!

  10. Now that’s really pretty. The daffodils are such a whimsical flower, I have them in my garden and love the way they dance in the wind, exactly perfect for this border. Love the messy part, now you’re talking what I do unintentionally. Then the blob. .. I am one with this card, Love that daffodil stamp!

  11. Hi Nicole 🙂 Love the watercolor…thanks for the encouragement to get mine out again! Stunning!!! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
