The Stamp Review Crew: Sunshine Sayings


Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  Today we stamp with another set from the main catalog, Sunshine Sayings and coordinating Sunshine Wishes dies.  If you are following the hop in order, you have just arrived from Mike Funke's blog.

I have used the sentiments from Sunshine Sayings many times to complement my other cards, but I have yet to break out the Sunshine Wishes dies.  Such a shame!

I had a photo of my daughter sitting on my desk from a previous project, and I thought it would be fun to combine Sunshine Sayings with Splitcoaststampers' Mix-Ability Challenge #209, Brr! Make It Frosty!, which is a mixed media challenge to add something sparkly.

I often make a half-page journal entry with these mixed media challenges in my retired This & That journal.  But, you know, any creativity journal will do!  Or you can incorporate ideas onto a scrapbook page.  To make it a true mixed media page, I added embossing paste through the Hearts Decorative Mask to create some fun texture.

Stamps: Sunshine Sayings; Paper: Basic Black, Neutrals DSP Pack, Watercolor Paper, Red Glimmer Paper; Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Real Red, Versamark; Accessories: Blushing Bride Sequin Trim, White Embossing Powder, This & That Journal, Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks, Embossing Powder, Sunshine Wishes Dies, Big Shot, Sewing Machine, Thread.

And along the same vein, a heart die-cut watercolor card.

I stacked three layers of "love" die-cuts to make the word thicker and pop out.

Stamps: Sunshine Sayings; Paper: Watermelon Wonder, Real Red, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Urban Underground DSP; Ink: Pink Pirouette, Watermelon Wonder, Versamark; Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, White Embossing Powder, Sunshine Wishes Dies, Big Shot, Sewing Machine, Thread, Dimensionals.

Hop on over to Mickey Roberts's blog to see what fun projects she has put together with this week's set.

Sweet pic of your daughters! Love what you did, shows lots of love but not just for "V" Day!

Forgot to say how wonderful your card is!

Mickey Roberts said...

Heidi, both of these projects are just terrific! The mixed media project is really special and doesn't overwhelm the beautiful photo. Your watercolor paper on the card makes me think of leather with the stitching along the edges. Gorgeous details!

Both of these projects are fab, but I must tell you how much I admire your watercolor background on the card -- wow!

Two fabulous creations, Heidi! The watercolour wash background is amazing and I'm loving the mix of the Urban Underground DSP with a 'pretty' card. Just have to say your sewing is super straight!! Looks fab! Thanks for sharing! Rochelle xo
