HSS Good Day Sunshine Challenge #75

Good Morning! I am writing this as I sit in the airport ready to take off for Salt Lake City, for CONVENTION! YEE HAW!! First, let's take a peek at the newest challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I was so excited at how this card turned out. I had a vision for the sun and wasn't sure how it would turn out. My friend Kim, who is UBER talented, made a sun with yellow tulle coming out of it. So I immediately thought of the Daffodil Delight Ribbon.

I saw a card by Elaine Uhl and loved how she had the Sunny Fun images peeking through.
I started with a Whisper White base and sponged the top half using paper cut in a scalloped shape to create the cloud illusion. I used Pool Party and Island Indigo to do this.  I added a strip of Pool Party Designer Series Paper Pack to the bottom and punched a strip of Island Indigo with my Scalloped Edge Border Punch to add to the top. Next I used my 1-3/4" circle punch to create the "window". And the final touch was to layer Whisper White Satin Ribbon with Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon and tie it around the front.

I then used my Stampin' Write Markers to color in the images I stamped on the inside. 

The sun was created by punching a piece of textured Daffodil Delight with the 1-3/8" circle punch and after running sticky strip on the back, I looped the Daffodil Delight Ribbon around the circle. I placed another 1-3/8" circle punch on the back to keep it in place and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I hope you enjoyed this new idea of creating a sun. Stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments and join us this week:) And stayed tuned for info from convention coming soon!
