Hello, Sunshine!


I like combining challenges with completely different tasks.

I was creating this card with two challenges in mind. First one is – Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer August challenge. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and wanted to use my HLS Whimsical Friends stamp set somehow…

And then I came across The Paper Players Theme Challenge #307 – “You light up my life”. And it was a really light-bulb moment, as there is sun in my stamp set.

I will be also linking to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #206 – “Anything goes”.

This is my first attempt to case the designer. This month the task at Happy Little Stampers is to case a beautiful card by Gloria Lee:

2016-06-23 10.21.21I created a heart-shaped mask out of paper using my Neat & Tangled die ‘Heart of Gold’ as a template.

Then I masked white area in the middle and stamped the sun from HLS Whimsical Friends stamp set around it.

Next step was to stamp a sentiment and a birdie from the same set in the middle.

I colored my card with watercolor pencils and finished it with some jewels.



This week’s task at The Paper Players is to include a source of light into project.

So using repeated stamping of the sun fits here just right.

I ‘framed’ my card with sunny orange designer paper and applied it to white card base.


Materials used:

  • Happy Little Stampers clear stamp set – Whimsical Friends
  • Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop ink pads – Beach Party set, Desert Sand
  • Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drop ink pad – Cosmic Copper
  • American Crafts smooth cardstock – Primaries
  • American Crafts textured cardstock – White
  • Colorbök Designer Paper – Joplin
  • BoBunny jewels
  • KOH-I-NOOR Hardtmuth Aquarell watercolor pencils – set of 36

Of course, I will be also linking it to Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with HLS stamps challenge. How could I have forgotten about it?
