And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Sunshine for a Rainy Day

Hello friends!  It's a little cloudy and rainy here, so I thought I would brighten your day with a little sunshine!  I actually have two sunny cards to share with you made with some fabulous new products released at the beginning of the month from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Both cards are made with the happy, new Sunshine Blessings stamp set!

Creative Nugget:  Doesn't this just make you smile!  The happy sun from the Sunshine Blessings stamp set was stamped at the bottom of the tilted panel, colored with Copic Markers, and framed with Daffodil Delight card stock.  A few sunny splatters and sequins were added before mounting the whole panel to a piece of Neenah Solar Crest card stock embossed and lightly sponged with the Sunburst Background Die.  The little sunshine banner was hand cut from one of the larger sentiments in the set and the little "hello" from the Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set was stamped above the banner.

Creative Nugget:  Both panels were embossed, watercolored, and sponged with the Sunburst Background Die.  The smile from Sunshine Blessings was stamped inside the embossed sun on the top panel and cut with a circle nestie creating a frame for the shaker.  The smile was then mounted to the bottom panel to show through the opening.  "Hello" was also die cut from the top panel. Acetate was adhered to the back of the top panel.  Seed beads were colored with Copic refill ink to be placed inside the shaker. The top panel was popped up with foam tape.  The sunshine banner was again hand cut from a larger sentiment in the Sunshine Blessings stamp set.  A bow made with sheer ribbon and a few sparely rhinestones and sequins were added to finish the card.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Send someone a little sunshine today!
