Bring on the sunshine!

Hi everyone. Well it’s been such a miserable rainy day that I created this card to cheer up!☀️😊

I knew I wanted to use the Sunshine word from the Sunshine Wishes dies. So I cut this out of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Then I grabbed the bring on the sunshine stamp from  the A Good Day stamp set, and cut out just the ‘bring on the’ part. I also stamped the little bird from this set, coloured and cut out. I used the ice cream from the same set, and the word sunshine from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, to create a random background. Then I cut a 2″ circle from whisper white, and mounted this onto the starburst punch in Daffodil Delight.

I used a little gingham gala paper in the Dafodill Delight and to create the little ‘border’ between that and the main card, I cut a length from my silver and pool party bakers twine, and removed the pool party piece. Just grab this colour and pull it out, whilst pulling the other two pieces in the opposite direction. This gave me a lovely white and silver twine to use. This complemented my card perfectly.





Colour challenge! #GDP153

UPDATE!!….So, 🙈, guess what?? – I’m a winner!!!! Eeeek!!!😍😍😍 YAY so excited! Guest_Designer_Winner_Badge

Hey everyone! Today I’ve got a colour challenge (#GDP153) to use Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I must say it wasn’t my go to choice of colours, as you know I love blue! But, it was good to use colours I wouldn’t usually pick. I hope you like it!


I started with an emboss resist technique, which is such a fun technique! So I stamped my flowers (from Happy Birthday Gorgeous) in versamark onto shimmery white cardstock and then white heat embossed. I then created a watercolour wash over the top, using Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight. I then layered up my card with Flirty Flamingo cardstock, vellum and stamped flowers, which I did fussy cut!(but it didn’t take long and was quite relaxing!). For the sentiment, I used an oval from the stitched shape framelits, and again, I embossed and watercoloured exactly as I did before, so as to match the background. I kept the Soft Suede as an accent colour, and used it for the layer, and also picked up in the little ‘leaves’ (from Animal Outing framelits)

….and yes, I know I’ve used the twine from the Little Twinkle Suite again(!), and it’s technically not any of the colours from the challenge, BUT, I just feel it goes! Don’t you?!!



I really like the subtle background on the card, I think I will definitely be doing this again!

Hope I have inspired you to have a go with colours you wouldn’t usually choose….and don’t forget to head over to the Global Design Project to check out all the other fab cards!
