Hello Sunshine

Hi everyone,

The sun has had us waiting for a long time here in Holland, but the last few weeks he has made up for it. As a special treat we have had a heat wave. The last one was in 2006. All this talk about the weather has something to do with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week's challenge is Ode to Sunshine. Whether you use a stamp or sun like colors. As long as it is something sunny!


I made ​​a card for my best friends birthday. She uses the phrase "Hello Sunshine" a lot and thought it was perfect for this challenge and for her.

When I thought of sunshine, I immediately thought of the Rays Embossing Folder by Tim Holtz. I really love that embossing folder, and I wanted to use it as a stamp but also do embossing with it. Because I wanted a Kraft background, I needed something that was opaque. So there came the Distress Paints into play.


I applied the Distress Paints from dark to light onto the raised areas of the embossing folder.


Then stamped with it by hand.


After I cleaned the embossing folder I aligned it and passed it through the vagabond.


If you look closely you can see that the sun's rays are debossed, but to make it look like that they are embossed, I carefully stamped with the She Art Print stamp on top op de raised areas.


Before I die cut the "hello" I covered the cardboard with Washi tape. Simple way to make your own patterns.
