Sending Sunshine

Today is a dreary and rainy day which makes one feel tired and chilly! But in hopes it might help I decided to make a sunshiny card design with the colors of oranges and yellows. This card will be entered into the Mod Squad Blog Challenge, Scrapy Land Blog #49 Challenge and The Crop Stop Linky Party #20 Challenge.

The sunshine and the sentiment are from a set from Technique Tuesday which I was fortunate to win and it is called Hello Sunshine. I tried to make the sentiment the focal image by framing it with a die from Die-Namics. I cut the frame three times and popped up the pattern paper one on top to give it more dimension. The final popped up frame was added with small pieces of Scor-Tape. I also used Scor-Tape to add the center portion which contained the sentiment.

The inks used for my card were all Tim Holtz Distressed inks. For the sentiment and smiley face in the sun I used Black Soot. The sun was inked up with Dried Marigold and inside the sun I used a Distress Ink marker called Squeezed Lemonade.

The sun was then popped up over the top portion of the frame using some Scotch Double Stick Photo Tape. The last thing I added to the card was some yellow and orange rhinestone gems.

Here are supplies used:
Technique Tuesday Hello Sunshine Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Marker
Scor-Pal to fold card
Scotch Double Stick Photo Tape
Die-Namics MFT-948 Single Stitch Line Circle Frame
Rhinestone Gems-Unknown
Pattern Paper-Unknown
Card Stock from Gina K. Designs

Well, making a card with sunshine on it brightened my day. I hope you have a bright and cheery day going on as well. And, thanks for stopping by and for the wonderful comments.

God bless,
