Ray of Sunshine!

When I first saw this stamp set I couldn’t get my hands on it quick enough. Then it arrived. I circled it. I continued to circle it. I circled it some more. This week I finally stopped circling it.

My problem is that I cannot, and I mean CANNOT, associate the sun with any color other than yellow and as I’m not the most “yellow” of people, I find it difficult to work with this color (yellow and green should never be seen – is this an actual saying as it seems to apply to me, a LOT!).

Here is what I finally achieved. Note: all circles are YELLOW… ha!

Ray of Sunshine - Bloom of Hope - JIFTo be honest I actually like this card. The flower from Bloom with Hope Stamp Set has been colored with the new Melon Mambo Blendabilities which shall be available for purchase in TEN days (August 1st).

For this next card having chosen So Saffron and Tangelo Twist Cardstock, I then used those two colors in Classic Ink with a Gorgeous Grunge Stamp to create some depth to the Whisper White Cardstock background.

Ray of Sunshine - You ARE my sunshine - JIFThis third and final card has become a favorite of mine thanks to the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set. I’ve yet to decide if the image I’ve used as the background in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink is a feather or a leaf skeleton, whichever it is, I LIKE IT! 🙂

How much do YOU know?!

What I know is that I have spent an ENTIRE afternoon doing what should have been a very QUICK card using scraps, only to complete the card using NOTHING of which I began with.

It did however use the Friends Who Know Stamp which I’ve been meaning to use so that at least was something, lol! For the colored chalk effect I chose to use the Blendabilities so that when I went outside the lines, it wouldn’t leave a darker shade as markers can sometimes do. This is my card.
