Sunny Wishes!


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

Today is Thursday so that means it is challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month, Shirley Quarry has given us another fun challenge.

Being that it is summer time in the Northern Hemisphere right now, Shirley challenged us to create a Summer Card with flowers or floral ribbon (or both if you like)

Well summer time for me reminds me of the beach so I decided to use that theme for my card and used one of the new beached themed stamps I received recently from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

The cloud background was created using MFT Stamps Die-namics cloud die. I die cut a few cloud shapes using masking paper and then placed them randomly over my white card and then use my copic airbrush to add the blue over them … once I removed my masks I had my sky complete with clouds.

The sun at the top left hand corner is another of MFT Stamps Die-namics Dies, this time the Sun Die which comes as two pieces. I used the pointy part for my sun and added a button over the top.

The layout of my card uses a recent The Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS58)
