Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are a group of international Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, product suite, holiday  or sometimes like this month an occasion.  The theme for this month is Birthdays.  I love this theme since it is so fun to send and receive birthday cards.  Enjoy the hop and I hope it inspires you to make some birthday cards!

I am also sharing a sneak peek of the Daffodil Daydream bundle from the 2022 J-J(January - June) Mini Catalog.  There are many special things about this bundle.  One very big thing is that it also coordinates with an offering in the 2022 J-F (January-February) Sale-A-Bration, the Daffodil Afternoon DSP (Designer Series Paper).

This is  currently one of my favorite folds.  I am terrible with remembering the names of folds-sorry.  Basically, you take an 8-1/2" x  11" piece of CS and score it at 4-1/4", turn and score at 5-1/2", and then cut the cardstock on the diagonal.  Now you have two card bases, simple and pretty cool.  For the DSP you cut  two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of DSP and cut both of them on the diagonal.   After that all you need to do is decorate.

The Daffodil Daydream stamp set doesn't have a birthday sentiment so I used one from the Blossoms in Bloom set and for the inside one from the Celebrate Sunflowers.  The Daffodil Daydream does have that cool border stamp and I think that is going to be a fun one to play around with.

Here's what I made with the 2ned card base and DSP.  This time I used the Daffodil Dies to create the flower.  It is hard to tell in the photo but I used the Pearlescent Paper to make the flower.  It has a lovely pearl finish and color wise falls between Basic White and Very Vanilla.
