Spring has sprung ..

Today is the first day of Spring in the UK but it is hard to believe as there has been no sign of the sun and it really is quite chilly.  I have done some gardening this morning but once my hands get cold I have to stop!  So in I came and returned to my craft room to get creative (and warm!).

Inspired by the challenge at UNIKO with the theme of 'Signs of Spring' nothing says Spring more than the arrival of daffodils.  I've created a couple of cards with the same stamp set but just plan on sharing one with you today.  This card is another card that is not in my usual CAS style as you will see the whole of the card front has something on it - no white space whatsoever!  Unlike the mixed media card I made earlier this week I have only used one technique - heat embossing.

I cut a panel of yellow card (it does look brighter in real life!) and then stamped just the flower head of the daffodil with watermark ink and heat embossed each image with white embossing powder.  I did the same for the sentiment and then it was just a case of adhering it to the card base, I used foam adhesive for the sentiment just to add a little dimension.

I used:
UNIKO Spring Botanicals: Daffodils
UNIKO Big and Bold Hello
Spectrum Noir Watermark Ink
Wow White Embossing Powder

Stay Safe and Keep Crafting!


  1. You're totally right, Elaine, nothing says Spring more than daffodils so does your card too ! Love how these daffodils shines over the bright yellow card...they just say that better days are coming ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Uniko.

  2. Love how bright and cheerful this card is. The daffodil background is wonderful and the BIG & BOLD Hello is an awesome choice. Thank you for sharing and joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Crafty Hugs Bev x
