You are my Sunshine

Hello!!  It's Wanda here today and I'm so glad you've stopped by!!!  

My project today uses one of the stamps from the Always Be My Friend set of 3, You are my Sunshine.   

Going from the bottom up, I have a layer of orange cardstock, then a layer of pink with the edges distressed, a white layer and then a layer of Shimmer Sheetz.  I used a little bit of alcohol ink on the shimmer sheetz, embossed it and then sanded the high spots lightly.  You are my Sunshine is stamped with Archival Ink jet black and then die cut with a stitched oval die.  The flowers are created using the Susan's Garden Notes Cosmos die set.  I die cut 2 stands from white cardstock, glued them together, embossed it doing half at a time as it is wider then the folder, inked the edges and folded.

  2. The shimmer sheet did a great job on the background! Looks so real! Your flowers are so pretty and the overall effect is just beautiful. I always forget that I have an easel die and it would be so nice to send with a card going to the hospital. People get cards and they can never see them when they are laying flat in bed. Thanks for making me think outside the box . . . .again!
