Sunshiney Days



Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS.

This challenge is being run by the very talented Shana Gaff (Stress Free Stamping with Shana), and she chose this "brilliant" word :)  ...



I hardly ever think to add glitter to cards except at Christmas time ... so thank you Shana!!!  I had to much fun making this glittery, summer card!




Prize:  4 digital images from Delicious Doodles
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)



Stamps:  Beach Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Champagne Glimmer (SU!); Turquoise Glitter ($1 store)
Ink:  Tangerine Tango
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Sunflower die (C.C. Designs), Wave die (MTF), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Orange glitter glue ($1 Store), Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue, sticky strips, and dimensionals



I die-cut three sunflowers (one yellow and two white), layered them to create a thick die and then painted them with orange glitter glue.  I did the same for the small orange circle in the center of the sun.  I die-cut two waves (one in turquoise glitter and one in white), and glued them together, off-setting slightly so that the white shows at the top of the waves.  I tore a piece of champagne glimmer paper and glued it to the wave.  All the dies are popped up on the card front to add lots of dimension.

I also added a small wave and sand to the inside of the card.


Here's a close-up:




I hope I have inspired you to join in our fun challenge ...  Addicted to CAS - Glitter. Come check out all the wonderful creations by the other Design Team members.
