Feel Good Cards, Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards

It Makes Me Happy To See You Smile


Hi there and happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is getting of to a lovely start.

After dipping my toes into the pool of fall colors yesterday, I quickly jumped back into  summer.  I can’t help it, I don’t want summer to end!

This card features the Friendly Florals stamp set from Neat and Tangled.  I’ve had my eye on this set for a while for it’s clean simple florals and sweet sentiments.

20180825_102313.jpgI started by stamping all of the floral images onto Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.  Then, I colored!  I used R81, R83, R85, and just a smidge of R89 for the flowers, Y17 for the little yellow things (I don’t know what they’re called, oops!) and G20, G21, G24, and a smidge of G28 for the leaves.  When I finished coloring, I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut out all of the images at once.

Using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, I stamped the sentiment in the center of an A2-sized card base.  I added a light green splatter by smooshing Shabby Shutters Distress Ink onto my glass work surface, adding a bit of water with a small paint brush, and then using the brush to flick the color onto the background.

Then, I laid down all of the florals around the sentiment and, using a bunch of Zots Bling adhesive dots, I began adhering them down.  I like using these small Zots when I have a lot of little pieces that I tuck into each other.  By putting down one dot in the center of the floral, I can twist it if I need to and tuck in other pieces around the edges before I add more dots to secure everything into their final positions.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
