#SimpleStamping Saturday – Sharing Sunshine. the summer seems to have finally arrived in the UK, so to celebrate I thought I would share some cards using the Sharing Sunshine stamp set. This is such a cute set and really affordable. Although it is a cute set, please don’t think it is only for children, surely Sharing Sunshine is something we should all be doing in these difficult times.
I chose Bumblebee ink, paired with a little touch of Cinnamon Cider for my #SimpleStamping version. Just 2 ink pads and some Basic White Note Cards and you can make this really joyful card to share with someone who may be feeling a little low at the moment.
I know someone who could do with a little extra sunshine in the form of a fun card like this, so will be popping one in the post later today, although I will change the sentiment to a more ‘thinking of you’ version.
Stepped Up Version 1
As always, my first stepped up version introduces some coloured card and a few extra products, this time the Layering Circle Dies, some ribbon and some gems. The idea for the background is CASEd from page 39 of the Annual Catalogue. If you are in the UK, let me know if you need a copy of the Catalogue by filling in the request form on the Catalogues page of this website.
You can see the products I used by scrolling further down the page. I also describe how I made this version in the YouTube video that partners with this post, link below.
Stepped Up Version 2
This version adds some more products and Heat Embossing. I decided to replace much of the Cinnamon Cider Ink with Gold Heat Embossing, for some added sparkle and fun.
I also cut a Gold Foil Mat (which I ‘gutted’ by cutting a rectangle from the centre so I can use that on a different project) and some Gold Twine. To find out how I made sure the twine stays in position, take a look at the video, it’s a really easy technique.
I have an ordering special for qualifying orders placed between 1st and 31st July that use the following Host Code:
Orders of AT LEAST £50 (before P&P) will receive a pack of Genial Gems, as a gift from me AND will be entered into a Draw to win a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine! This is in ADDITION to my usual Thank You Card, Gift and Reward Vouchers. EVERYONE using the Host Code (or placing an order of £150 or more) will receive the July Customer Card Kit. Please note that there is only one Gift Pack per customer per month.
Video Tutorial Time!
