Oh Hello, Sunshine! With Stampin’ Up!

By | 02/15/2013

After all the snow, rain and dreary weather of the last week, I’ve been craving sunshine.  I created a card that screams sunshine!  Stampin’ Up!s beautiful variety of Designer Series Paper is a fabulous starting point!

oh hello sunshineThis is a great way to use your paper scraps.  If you are anything like me, you save every strip you trim off a piece of paper because you just know you’ll find a use for it.  Well, here is a great use!

This is a very simple card and you could make a variety of color combinations for this card.  I used the Oh, Hello stamp set (#130733) and concentrated on my yellow and orange papers.  I used Pumpkin Pie Ink to stamp the sentiment.  I also used the 2-3/8″ scallop circle punch (#118874) and the 1-3/4 circle punch (#119850) to create my focal point with my sentiment.  You can see that I used the white gel pen(#105021) to add interest to my scallop circle with dots in the scallops.

I embellished it with one of the small soda pop tops (#129388) and a scrap of Pumpkin Pie card stock punched with the Boho Blossoms punch (#119858) with a large pearl (#125577) in the center.  The bottle cap has been crushed using the Big Shot (#113439).  Put the cap between the cutting plates and use the platform with no tabs.  Works like a charm!

I’m loving the Soda Pop Tops as a fun embellishments for my cards.  I will be ordering more of those first thing tomorrow!!!  You get two different sizes.  I used the small one today and the large one on several cards earlier in the week.  You get 8 of each size for a total of 16 caps for only $3.95.  I love how shiny silver they are as well.  I really is a fun element to add interest to your card!
