A bright Thanks…

Hello

Thank you for comments and likes recently.

Glad to see I’m not the only one who relies so much on my phone! The happy news it is all sorted and I didn’t need to get a new one just yet.  A small repair sees things all good again.

Anyway enough waffle.

You stop to see the pictures.

Today I have a “thanks” card for a co worker of my eldest daughter.

I am linking up to Darnell’s NBUS #7 here

my NBUS is the stamplorations die.

I hate to admit I’m pretty sure some of these flower images have never seen ink either.  I can’t be alone in admitting to having loads of images that have never seen inky love. Image result for embarrassed emoji

I will also link up to

As per Ms E’s usual requests there were specific instructions – this time bright with purple and sparkle and to include flowers.  Well I set Ms E the task of finding the flower stamps – um no small feet!  After she narrowed to about 8 sets I then picked from those and allocated each image an ink colour from those she had selected.  I’ve discovered even though I have lots of purple inks I don’t really have a bright purple.  Maybe someone can suggest one for me to add to my crafty wishlist.

Here is the result

This card is larger than normal – an A4 piece scored in half.

Which stamp sets did I use to make the background? Images from SU Crazy about you, PTI Beautiful Blooms II, Uniko Flower Power #4 (Ms E was very specific that this image had to be used) and ABS Stemmed Flowers (a few images from that set). I started stamping with the largest images on to white cardstock and then worked down to the smallest.  Each flower had their own colour ink.  As I mentioned earlier I lined everything up before starting to stamp.  The smallest flower was inked in 2 colours to fill in the gaps.  The ink colours used are SU Pumpkin pie, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Cre8tive purple.  This one of a kind paper was attached to some purple cardstock.  I used a NBUS stamplorations “thanks” die cut in the same purple cs and also from foam to add dimension.  All this finished with some clear sequins and glossy accents on the die cut to cover the sparkle request.

  1. I’m glad you got your phone sorted out, Vicki! You and your stamp adviser (Ms E) did a brilliant job of making this pretty floral patterned paper!! Your colors are cheerful and vibrant and I love how you used GA on your foam sediment!! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Fantastic, mind you I think I can see where you could have fit another itty bitty bloom or two… nah joking. Looks fantastic and what a great way to make use of all those little ones we never use.
