Sunnies Times Three

Hello everyone! It’s LauraJane sharing three fun cards using the new SUNNIES stamp set and coordinating dies.  How Cute are these?! Surely you can understand how I got carried away with ideas for this set. I checked out a Board on Pinterest and then began creating.

Starting with the first pair of SUNNIES at the top of the set, I stamped a rainbow background using Soft Garnet, Peach Blossom, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Soft Garden, Cali Blue, and Soft Amethyst Couture inks. Then I embossed each one with Clear EP and trimmed the panel down with the 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″ die from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small) I then quickly used Copic N1 to add a hint of shadowing.IMG_9391bNext I heat embossed the sentiment onto black CS with White EP . Created a nest of DMC Metallic Thread – Light Silver and popped it into place with Foam tape. I think this kind of card  is perfect for anyone needing encouragement in our lives. IMG_9394

This next pair is my FAVORITE!IMG_9425

These SWEET SUNNIES embellished with pretty blooms, is Embossed with the gorgeous Rose Gold Embossing Powder and cut with matching the coordinating die.  Flesh color, Blush and Light Pink Zigs are what I used to color in the flowers. Olive green for the leaves. Then I shaded in the lens with Flesh color ZIG and added Glossy Accents for a bit of shine!

Layered the YOU panel onto a piece of CS stamped with Sunflower Garden Cling Background  with only the leaves colored in. This panel was trimmed with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The BG was stamped with Rose Gold Bangle Pigment Ink Set

In order to make that FUN sentiment work , I carefully cut the word you from the stamp in the SUNNIES set and inked it with Caviar onto white CS. Then colored it with the Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. Cut it down to make a small banner and glued it into place. Finished the card by embellishing with SUMMER SOIREE Couture mix which is the incentive mix from the SUMMER RELEASE. IMG_9410

I couldn’t leave the SUNNIES without playing with the Third pair!

So I quickly heat embossed them with Black Sparkle EP. I just love that kiss of glitter in this powder! The Coordinating Die made easy trimming out. Then I colored the open spaces and lens with Copic B000 and B02.IMG_9402

Going for a cool summer poolside look, I Heat embossed Haute Stripes with White EP and drew a shadow of color with Copic B000 under each stripe. Trimmed the panel with 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″ die from Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large).  I stamped the sentiment with Noir. Layered that onto a panel inked with the Rose Terrace Cling Background and  Couture Color – Blue Minis.IMG_9407

There you go! Three very different Sunnies. Hope you enjoyed seeing how I created with this set.
