Sunshine & Bee Designs release week!

If you don’t follow me over on Instagram and Facebook you might not have known I have joined a new design team for Sunshine & Bee Designs – a fairly new UK stamp company. They create cute little floral and critter stamps and they’ve just released their second set of stamps. So as it is the Sunshine & Bee designs release week, I have a card up on the blog here today using one of the 8 new stamp sets.

Emboss resist ink blending!

To start off, take the floral wreath from the ‘Because…’ stamp set and place this in your Misti with a piece of white cardstock. Next, using clear embossing ink, stamp the design onto your cardstock and then cover with Opaque Bright White embossing powder. Now, use a heat gun to heat set the powder. 

For the colour, ink blend Something Borrowed Catherine Pooler Ink with blending brushes over one area of the wreath. Next, apply Lime Rickey Catherine Pooler Ink and blend this onto the wreath next to the blue colour, overlapping slightly to create a colour in between.  Repeating ink blending Limoncello, Samba, and Grape Crush Catherine Pooler Inks with blending brushes around the wreath until fully covered and to create a rainbow. Make sure you buff any excess ink over the heat embossing away with a dry cloth. 

Adding texture to the background!

For the background, score a piece of white card panel trimmed to 5.25″x 4″ at every 1/4″ horizontally down the card panel. Foam mount this card panel onto a card base created out of Soft Stone Gina K cardstock. When ready, fussy cut the wreath out and foam mount this onto the card front. 

For the sentiment, heat emboss the ‘Thank You So Much’ sentiment from the ‘Because…’ stamp set onto black card in Opaque White embossing powder. Trim this down into a stip and adhere over the top of the wreath. Lastly, add a few White Nuvo Crystal drops for embellishment to finish the card off.
