Bring Me Sunshine using products from Stampin’ Up!
I’m joining in last minute with CASology Week 201, where the theme is SUNSHINE. I thought it was about time I got more organised and played along with them again as it’s been a while and I have missed taking part. I’m using products from Stampin’ Up! of course for my sunshine card. The stamp set I used for the stamped part of the sentiment is aptly named Sunshine Sayings and the thinlits I used for the flower and rest of the sentiment are Sunshine Wishes.
We could do with some sunshine again – it’s been raining here on and off since Saturday evening! I think that’s why the song Bring Me Sunshine popped into my head as I started writing this post and now I can’t shake it! Lol! Typical British Summer – mind you gives me a great excuse to play with my new umbrella stamps too!
This card was really easy. I had the water coloured background sitting in my unfinished products basket. I think it’s Mint Macaron! I splattered some Melon Mambo over the top to break it up a bit.
I cut out the flower and sunshine sentiment from watercolour paper using the thinlits dies. I simply spritzed them with water and then spritzed the flower with Melon Mambo and then Daffodil Delight over the top which gave that lovely orangey colour. The sunshine I spritzed with Daffodil Delight and then swiped it through the orangey ink that was left over on my mat from the flower. Once they were dry I mounted them onto the card front and then I stamped the sentiment in black.
I love the little rhinestone as the dot of the ‘i’ in sunshine!
Well I hope you like it! I had great fun playing around with this one. I think it still qualifies as CAS – well fingers crossed it does! 🙂
