Sunshine on Circle Chicks!

When I first opened the Ray of Sunshine Stamp Set, I couldn’t see the sun, instead all I could see where chickens! Sadly though when I attempted to create what I saw in my mind, it simply didn’t happen. That was until I remembered the Circle Thinlets.

This was my “Ah-Ha” Moment. Once I had my base-card the rest fell into place quickly. I even used some of the Lullaby DSP (which is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous) rather than a DSP stack I’ve fallen into the habit of grabbing.

Ray of Sunshine - New Ray of Sunshine - Closed - JIFGold Foil Paper has been used on the beaks, wings and post of the “Woo Hoo” banner from the Big News Stamp Set. I stamped the curved “sun-ray/shark-fin” onto the back of a scrap of Gold Foil Paper then cut it out to use as a wing on my Mama Bird and Baby Bird. Obviously both the wing and beak have been cut down CONSIDERABLY for Baby Bird.

It’s only now that I realize that I didn’t sponge ANY of the circles, oops, next time! Inside the card looks like this. The tiny-tiny heart is from the Owl Builder Punch.

Hello Honey Bee!!!

After my “first” attempt of the Hexagon Hive Die-cut being ripped in two, oops, as much as I love it I tend to shy away from using it but today I decided to work through my pain barrier. And as I was working through my pain barrier in this horrid heat, I challenged myself to use GREEN! Here’s my card…

It’s not that green and I aren’t on speaking terms, it’s simply a case of mixing in different circles, our paths seldom crossing. That was until today. Today I’m into Wild Wasabi, even buying some Wasabi Peas to assist my process! I’ve used Wild Wasabi Cardstock as a thin border behind the Hexagon Hive Die-Cut and Wild Wasabi 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon.

The Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set only JUST arrived yesterday so I was itching to use it with the Hexagon Die-Cut. How cute is this bee and the matching sentiment? There is also a heart stamp that coordinates with the Heart Punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack but I opted for a simple Silver Foil punched heart.
