Bring on the Sunshine - Kelly Bates

Hello friends! Well Spring has definitely sprung here in Brisbane, and so I thought it would be time to bring on some florals! Today I’m sharing a set of cards created using the Doodle Flowers stamp set, and bringing some sparkle in by using a shimmer spray.

To recreate these cards you’ll need the following goodies:

Card One:

  • Take the first of the Neenah panels and ink blend Bee Sting into Traffic Cone, and then Traffic Cone into Over The Moon and set aside to dry for a minute, then give it a few spritzes of gold shimmer spray and set aside to dry completely.
  • Once dried, use the leaf stamp and stamp all over the coloured panel in Versafine Onyx Black, allow to dry, then die cut using the coordinating die.
  • Using the Sunshine Words sentiment stamp set I’ve stamped “sunshine” first in Over The Moon, followed by the “you fill my heart with” in Bee Sting onto another piece of Neenah, then have cut it down.
  • I’ve then glued my leaves directly to my card base overlapping each other, then mounted my sentiment with foam tape, popping a little silver thread behind it to give it a bit more sparkle.

Card Two:

  • I’ve used the next Neenah panel and blended 3 circles of ink directly onto the paper, being slightly bigger than the daisy flower – two in Rosy Cheeks and one in Triple Berry.
  • After allowing the circles to dry for a minute I’ve spritzed again with my shimmer spray and set aside to dry.
  • I've then stamped each circle with a daisy and allowed to dry completely before using the coordinating die to cut them out.
  • Stamp the sentiment directly onto the card base using the same ink colours, glue the pink flowers down and foam mount the purple one.

Card Three:

  • I’ve used my last panel of Neenah and blended Overzealous into Clear Skies, then Clear Skies into Remember Me on the left hand side of the card.
  • I’ve then gathered several of the doodle flower and leaves stamps and have stamped each of the images, masking some off as I go to give me differing layers. I’ve then stamped the “to brighten your day” from the Sunshine Words sentiment stamp set, and the “just a little note” from the Bird Day stamp set.
  • To finish this card I’ve splattered the card with the gold shimmer spritz, as well as a little Overzealous and Clear Skies which I added a little water to.
  • Once the card was dried I used my Faber Castell PITT artist pen (black 199) to add a few black dots near the two larger leaves.
