Sunshine Stenciling (New release from Simon Says Stamp)

Hello, all! Today’s Live Chat was postponed (stay tuned for a new time!), so instead I’m sharing the cards I had planned to share tomorrow. These cards feature stamps, dies, and a stencil from Simon’s latest release. You can see the ENTIRE release here.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

This set of cards started with the idea for the only the first card, but when I had leftover ink on the Solar Burst stencil, I decided create a second card.

All of the blending was done using Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, and Candied Apple.

As for a greeting on the first card, I used the Four Seasons Sayings stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. And for the second card, I die cut the You Are My Sunshine die four times out of black cardstock and stacked the diecuts to create a dimensional greeting.

Both cards were finished off with a random scattering of sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the entire Sending Sunshine release. :)
