Social Stamping - Brights!

The Social Stamping with Kelly Kent blog hop is back for 2021. Our theme this month is Brights! 

I can't wait to see everyone's take on this. I've known about the hop for so long and been tossing ideas around only to find myself making the card today. When will I learn?? There are so many ways to use the theme, but today I've gone with colouring and believe it or not I actually used every one of the Brights colours.

I've stamped the wild flower image from Dragonfly Garden onto Whisper White (because I still have some) using Granny Apple Green ink. Then I've used all but 3 of the colours in my Stampin' Markers for the flowers and leaves while not being too fussy so little bits of white still showed. I've added the greeting from A Touch of Ink in Pacific Point, then I've embossed this piece with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. This was matted onto Gorgeous Grape cardstock and attached to my base card of Thick Whisper White with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The dragonfly was stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Dragonflies Punch. I've used my Wink of Stella pen and coloured the wings with Bermuda Bay ink and added it to the front using a Stampin' Dimensional.

See if you can work out what Bright colour went where:

Actually I CASEd myself for this card. I made the card below at a recent class and it was a favourite of a few attendees, it was so easy to create - stamps, ink and paper (maybe a punch to help out). A bit off topic as it was Very Vanilla card and Early Espresso ink.

Next up we have the lovely Mandy and a less colourful palette choice I believe:
