Nothing says Spring like daffodils. This fun and bright “spring” design features the Basket Bunch Bundle. It is another design from my April Card Class. I just love it’s bright and sunny color palette [Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky]. I was perusing Pinterest and came across my inspiration for this CASE’d design. Yes, I was inspired to “copy and selectively edit” this spring-y design by Michelle Gomez. The Basket Bunch Bundle is great because it covers all manner of spring flings……Easter, Spring and chicks man, chicks. Lol!
BASE: First it starts with a Pear Pizzazz base. Next I added the Flirty Flamingo layer, this adds a nice frame effect. Then I topped it with (vintage) Textured Blushing Bride for a subtle bit of texture. Fortunately I had just enough for my class stampers. Woohoo!
SENTIMENT: I also added a Flirty Flamingo layer behind the Whisper White for that nice framing effect and an extra punch of color. The Whisper White rectangle is sponged with Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz to become a soft background for the “Daffodils” and “Thanks of Bunch” both from the Basket Bunch stamp set. There is also a “Grass” stamp that I stamped several time along the bottom to ground everything.
FLOWERS: I had to put my big girl pant on to do the coloring on the flowers and leaves. (smile) The “Stem” was stamped onto the sponged rectangle three times to create the stems. Then I stamped the “Daffodil” three times and the “Leaf” four times onto Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black Ink. The leaves are colored with Pear Pizzazz and the daffodils with Flirty Flamingo and a touch of So Saffron for the centers. The coolest part is the Flower and Leaf were die cut with shapes from the Basket Builder Framelits Die Set. Woohoo…no cutting (unless you REALLY want to!) “More height” number two is popping the “Daffodils” with Dimensionals. Ooh…..I almost forgot, I added a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the Daffodils to add my all important sparkle. (smile)
Finally, to give the feel of “a bunch of flowers” I wrapped the rectangle with 3/8″ Taffeta Flirty Flamingo Ribbon before popping with Dimensionals.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a great Memorial Day Holiday weekend and get to relax and stamp too.
