The Sun is Shining!

Wow!  What is that bright, shiny thing in the sky?

It’s a gorgeous day in Indiana and I hope you are enjoying it as well.

Today’s card is bright & cheerful.  It is based on a sketch from CAS(E) this sketch.

I knew the Sunburst die would be perfect to use and I was inspired by the guest designer to also do some watercoloring.  I started by using an Aquapainter to create a wash of Daffodil Delight ink on the upper portion of the card.  Next, I die cut the Sunburst die using the Brights Designer Series Paper.  I cut the Sunburst a second time using a Circles thinlits die.

I also did a watercolor wash of Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock before punching out the cloud shape with the Tree Builder punch.  The Black polka dot strip of Neutrals Designer Series Paper was punched with the Banner Triple punch.  I also punched a small heart from Real Red card stock.

The sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, which coordinates with the Sunburst die.  You can purchase them both in a bundle to save 15%.  I punched out the sentiment with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.

All the elements were adhered to the front of the card, mostly with Dimensionals. I used a TON on this card!  You’ll also see that I added one of the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker over the heart to give it some dimension.

There is a complete list of all the products used on this card at the end of this post.  Don’t forget that you can select a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with every $50 purchase!  It’s a great time to get some fun stamping products like the Sunburst bundle.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This card is just as cute as can be. I am loving the happy sun and the dotted banner. I saw your card on Splitcoast and had to come to see the details. Thank you for sharing.
