Stampin' Up! Sending Sunshine to Brighten Your Day

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a clean and simple card using the Sending Smiles Bundle paired with the Splendid Day Speciality Designer Series Paper. I started off the card by attaching a piece of the Splendid Day Speciality Designer Series Paper to the card base made from Basic White Thick Cardstock.

Next I added a stitched circle die cut from Basic White Cardstock that I used the Stitched Shapes Dies. For the stamping I used Flirty Flamingo Ink for the center of the flowers and Poppy Parade Ink for the petals of the flowers. The stems where stamped with Old Olive Ink.

For the sentiment I took a piece of Basic White Cardstock and attached a piece of the the Adhesive Sheets to the back. I then used my Blending Brushes to ink blend Flirty Flamingo Ink on one side and Poppy Parade Ink on the other. I blended the two colors together in the center. I then cut out the thin sending die from the this Cardstock. After die cutting the then sending I added it to the shadow sending die (that was cut from Basic White Cardstock).

I finished off the card by adding the sub sentiment stamped in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock. I then covered the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders. I used one of the sentiment strip dies from the Sending Dies to cut out the sub sentiment.

I finished off the card by adding a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card that I colored with the Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends. If you need any of the supplies that I used today, you can find all the supplies listed below in the Shopping List below.
