Dainty Delight Parakeet Party Card

Happy Spring, friends! Aren't you glad it's finally here?

To celebrate the beginning of the new season, I have a simple card for you, using a spring-y palette of Parakeet Party green and white. I'll include a clickable photo list of all the supplies at the end of this post.


Parakeet Party usually looks very vibrant, but I find that combining it with white and a floral stamp set gives it a delicate touch that evokes the first green tendrils of spring. I combined it with the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, to show that a detailed floral stamp set can create a completely different look when it is stamped in a single ink, without any need to colour it in. Here's the Dainty Delight set:

To make this card, I started by using Something Fancy Dies to cut a Basic White Cardstock label and a slightly larger one from Parakeet Party Cardstock. Then I stamped my sentiment from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set in Parakeet Party Ink onto the Basic White label. (Ce jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français.) Next, I stamped the largest floral stamp from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set repeatedly across a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Basic White Cardstock panel in Parakeet Party Ink. 

I then adhered the Basic White label to the matching Parakeet Party one. I also adhered my stamped Basic White panel to a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of 2022-2024 In Color DSP in Parakeet Party. With Stampin' Dimensionals, I added the labels to the panels, then adhered the panels to a 4 1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base. 

To finish the card, I added some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels and a bow made from White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. This is one of my very favourite ribbons, it's so beautiful:
