It's summer and "Here Comes The Sun" is our theme today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary but first....have you seen the Sneak Peek yet for our August Mini? It's time to sign up to receive some new projects:


We are using stamp sets from the 2016-17 catalog on our projects! PLUS...

get a HOLIDAY SURPRISE card set tutorial using Star of Light from the
Holiday Catalog to get you started on your Christmas cards ideas!

* Each session includes FIVE step-by-step tutorials for projects...THREE card sets,
each with 4 cards and TWO 3D items...perfect for your club or stamp camp!

* All FIVE projects are available once the monthly mini collection opens so
you immediately have all projects (and tutorials)

*Mini Sessions open on the 11th of each month

Now back to business, here's my "Here Comes The Sun" card for today's blog hop:

This is a pretty simple 3-layered card with the addition of some bling using the Metallics Sequins Assortment. Just the perfect amount of sparkle & glam for my card:

Card Recipe:

  • Card Base: Daffodil Delight Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 4-1/4" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 5". Set aside.
  • Layer #3: Daffodil Delight Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies, use the circle the measures 2-1/8" and cut a hole about 1" from the left and 1-1/2" from the top. Stamp the splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set diagonally starting at the top right corner down to the left bottom corner using Daffodil Delight Ink. Stamp the sentiment from the Tin Of Cards stamp set using Memento Black Ink at the bottom right-hand corner.
  • Stamped image: Place the white layer under Layer #3. Using a pencil, place a dot in the center of the hole. Stamp the sun image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set using Daffodil Delight Ink by center over the pencil dot. Once dry, erase the pencil dot. Glue the white layer behind Layer #3. Glue to card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Glue some of the Metallic Sequins Assortment over the splatter images.
