Pure Sunshine

Hi everyone.  Today's card is honoring Cindy (frienziedstamper at SCS).  She is this week's Queen for the Day (QFTD181).  Congrats Cindy!!

I CASE'd (copy and share everything) this card from Cindy's fabulous gallery.  I sponged the background using different shades of the colors she used, and added two stencils:  Tile Texture from Crafter's Workshop; and a stencil I made using my Little Leaves die from Sizzix.  I placed the sponged and stenciled panel on my card base and added a card front with the circle die-cut.  A simple sentiment finishes the card.

Here's a close-up:

Stamps:  Sunny Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Tile Texture stencil (Crafter's Workshop), Little Leaves die (Sizzix), sponges, adhesives, and dimensionals

  1. Gorgeous card Loll , love the colors, and your stencils are wonderful.
    Thanks much for the Candy, I will really enjoy using it!!
    Have a great rest of the week!!

  2. Congratulations to Donna, she is in for some lovely candy I can assure her! And this is a wonderful card. It does invoke the sunshine feel- summer grass, ice tea's just beautiful. Love your die stencil. Did you use mylar to cut it, or just negatives from c/stock? I've tried with the mylar and didn't get a good 'stencil' look when done. Guess I didn't have down tightly seeped under. This is perfect.TFS & Hugs

  3. Featuring such gorgeous colours through a die cut window is magic Loll.
    Love the stenciling.Happy creating.
