Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Hello sunshine…
Today I have a bright and cheerful card to share with you, guaranteed to chase away the cloudy skies – in my dreams anyway 😉 I used the Sunshine Wishes Framelits and that lovely sunburst image from Amazing You in cheerful yellows to create the focal image on my card and you might need to break out your sunnies before you take a look 😉
The design inspiration is from this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #262 challenge. I find it really difficult to use lots of white space on my projects, so am feeling quite pleased that I managed to do it on this one.
To create my sunny background I sponged Daffodil Delight ink onto my card front with a Sponge Dauber to make a rough ombre circle. I did have a practice first on my Grid Paper to get the look that I wanted and to work out how big to make the circle before I committed to cardstock, this really is an essential piece of kit for any paper crafter, especially those of us who need a some practice runs 🙂
I stamped the sunburst image from Amazing You (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Crushed Curry ink twice to create the sun that finished off my simple background.
The word “sunshine” was die cut using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits from both Crushed Curry and Basic Grey cardstock. I didn’t want my word to disappear into the background and offset the grey slightly to create a shadow effect which helped my Crushed Curry one stand out.
I’m fortunate to have lots of native birds where I live and there’s always a commotion in the early morning when they wake up – who needs alarms, right 🙂 so a cheeky little individual from Bird Banter greeting the morning seemed the perfect choice to add a little pop of contrasting colour.
I coloured my budgie with Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut him out close to the outline, he needed something to sit on though and after a bit of searching I found these leafy branches in the Magical Mates Framelits which were the perfect size 🙂
I added a “hello” sentiment from Thoughtful Banners in Basic Grey ink and a few of the clear shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes added a finishing touch.
I hope you liked my sunny project today, yellow is such a cheerful colour to work with and making this card really lifted my spirits. I’ll be back tomorrow with the 5th Bunny Hop project, see you then.
