Sunshine Sayings

As I’m packing up all my stuff (DANG…I have A LOT of stamping stuff) I’m trying to use some different things instead of just the things form the Occasions mini.  I saw my Sunshine Sayings sitting there and decided to do a quick card to share with you all.

I’ve been really having fun playing with the A Little Foxy ds paper stack!

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Smoky Slate print – 3 3/4 x 5 layer onto Whisper Whit e- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out heart and add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black
  • Flirty Flamingo – cut out hope and add using dimensionals
  • Had some heart silver metallic enamel shapes to finish off
