Pocketful of Sunshine

When I made this card, Harvey has not yet landed in Texas bringing the devastation to that area and now also to Louisiana.  Watching the coverage of the devastation in that area only puts me in awe of the force of nature and resiliency and kindness of one person to another.  My thoughts are with you.

This week we have have a great inspiration for you – Dapper Denim, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede.

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 7/8 x 3, run through the Sparkle Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Pear Pizzazz stripe (Coffee Break dsp) – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Soft Suede – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Pear Pizzazz – stamp money 3 times using Memento Black, cut out
  • Dapper Denim – stamp pocket and stitching using Memento Black, cut out, add money behind the pocket and add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp “a little pocket” in Soft Suede and “money” in Pear Pizzazz, punch out with the Everyday Label punch, sponge using the Soft Suede add to card front
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish out.

Pocketful of Sunshine

For all of my friends in the U.S.  Happy Independence Day!  I hope where you are the sun is shining and you are having a fun and safe gathering of friends and family!

The theme this time for the SUO challenge is Summer Fun – anything that reminds you of summer!  I’ve been playing with the Pocketful of Sunshine for my Create with Connie and Mary July Mini edition and I had these ‘cool’ sunglasses leftover and just sitting on top of my desk looking VERY lonely!  So I had this idea to make it into a really ‘CooL’ card!

Here’s the details…

  • Daffodil Delight – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 x 5 1/2, layer two strips of Foil Frenzy Specialty paper 5/8 x 5 1/2 behind the panel then add to card front
  • Daffodil Delight – cut out the C and L from the Large Alphabet and use journaling pen to add ‘doodling’; stamp sunglasses using Memento Black, cut out with matching framelit and all all three piece to the card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Tangerine Tango
  • Tangerine Tango – stamp smiley face word bubble using Memento Black, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Tangerine Tango – two pieces 1/8 x 5 1/2, add to top and bottom
  • Add small rhinestones to to glasses to finish off
