Enjoy some sunshine!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is my last card for this week featuring the Sending Sunshine stamp set! I’ve had a lot of fun with this stamp set this week and I thought why not use one of Stampin’ Up! layering dies to show you another way to be creative? The scenery for this card is very easy to make and is a great way for you to start out with if this is a first for you with this kind of stamp set! You just need a few colors and a sponge dauber to complete this scenery!

For the scenery, use the largest Stitched Nested Labels Die to cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock:

Since I would run into a little bit of an issue lining up the two water stamps, I used a piece of craft tape as a guide to help with this and first inked the small water stamp in Just Jade ink, stamped off first before stamping on the die-cut cardstock, and inked the large water stamp in Soft Sea Foam ink, also stamping off first:

I then masked the water and used a sponge dauber to color the sky in Balmy Blue ink:

I stamped the clouds in Balmy Blue ink, used a sponge dauber with Sahara Sand ink for the ground area around the water, and used So Saffron ink for the sun, stamping off first:

I used the small speck stamp in Sahara sand ink, the small plant stamp in Just Jade ink, and stamp the large plant stamp in Pretty Peacock ink on Wisper White cardstock, fussing cutting out, and adhere to the die cut cardstock:

The card base is Just Jade cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is Vellum cardstock embossed with the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder. I placed a small amount of adhesive in the middle of the embossed Vellum cardstock to adhere to the card base:

The completed scenery is adhered with a couple of strips that I cut from the Foam Adhesive Sheets and the sentiment is heat embossed with White Embossing Powder, fussy cut out, and adhered with mini dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink, and stamp the large plant stamp in Pretty Peacock ink, three times:

Doesn’t this card remind you of a perfect beach or lake day? The temperature is just right, calm and peaceful weather that you really can just sit down to inhale, exhale, and enjoy!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
