Hey there! It's the 15th of the month, which means it's time for:
July's theme is "Hot, Hot, Hot!" and if you just arrived from Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar Stamps you saw her fabulous creations with the Ray of Sunshine stamp set! I love Stella's use of the diagonal "rays" of color for her background, very retro 60's/70's-ish!
My first project today also uses the Ray of Sunshine set:
I used one of the Starburst Framelit Dies to cut the center of the sun, then added 9 banner-punched "rays". I sponged all the Daffodil Delight cardstock with Tangerine Tango ink.
A new Project Life Journaling Pen worked perfect to hand-draw the sunny little face, and I used the White Chalk marker to faux-stitch around the Kraft cardstock base.
I rounded the corners with the corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board, and created the white copy-paper envelope with the punch board too!
The greeting and the inside sentimet, both from Ray of Sunshine, were stamped with the new Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and the tiny little heart from the Project LIfe Point & Click set was stamped with Melon Mambo ink.
What would Hot, Hot, Hot, be without a riot of yellow and orange blossoms? We made the Ray of Sunshine card and this one with the Flower Patch and Mixed Bunch sets at my Punch & Technique Class this month:
"Your in My Thoughts" from A Dozen Thoughts was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink BEFORE we embossed the Daffodil Delight layer with the Stylish Stripes folder.
The Flower Patch stamps are a breeze to stamp with the Stampin' Pierce Mat under the cardstock, and the Mixed Bunch blossom really added the Tangerine Tango "punch" needed to make this card really bright & happy!
We used the darkest Pumpkin Pie Blendability alcohol marker to color the Rhinestones before adding them to the flower centers.
Inside we stamped my FAVORITE phrase from Perfect Pennants with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
