You Are My Sunshine

Welcome…I’m so happy you’re here!  I’ve been a bit MIA…but life is CRAZY here…and I haven’t been able to get into the studio much.  But…YAY…I snuck in there last night to have some fun with one of the new bundles that I’ve been super excited about…Stitched All Around.

 

 

Seriously…isn’t it amazing?  The details are exquisite…with something for everyone to love!  As for me…the you are my sunshine sentiment caught eye right away…so I inked it up first…for this card.

 

 

Again…the details in this bundle are exquisite…including the dies.  So…I began by using the stitched texture piece to set the stage for the larger focal element.

 

 

To create the focal element I started by stamping the sentiment on white cardstock using Lovely Lipstick ink…cutting it out with the coordinated die.  I also die cut the leaves in Basic Gray and the doily-like piece in Pineapple Punch…and then punched a bit of Lovely Lipstick cardstock with the 2″ Circle Punch..  Finally…I layered the various pieces…and included ribbon and sequin.

 

To finish…I placed the element on the card base…and added a bit of sparkle with clear rhinestones.

 

 

If you’ve visited before…you know I LOVE color!  I was thrilled with the bright and fun 2018-2020 In Colors…and so EXCITED about the Color Revamp!  So…be prepared to see new, different, outside-of-my-comfort-zone combinations here…like the one I used today.
