Sunny Lovin'

One of my lovely on-line friends, Shirley McAvoy, has been asked to be a guest on the Design Team for Sunny Challenges & Creations blog, so for her first challenge I decided I definitely had to play along.  Pop over to her blog as well as the challenge site, I just love her creations she has a bright fun style, which really matches her personality!  One of my highlights in going to Stampin' Up!  Convention last year was that I got to meet some of my on-line friends, and Shirley was one of those ladies.  Any-hoo on with the challenge!  This week was to create a card filled with Love - I guess with Valentine's Day not too far away it is a great time to make a card for someone you love.

I decided to use one of the stamps from up-coming Sale-A-Bration called Outlined Occasions.  I just love the fun feel of this set so you will be seeing more cards featuring it over the next weeks and months.  I kept the card fairly simple as I am trying to do more Clean and Simple cards.  I have raised all the hearts up on Dimensionals to give some added depth and spritzed them with a mix of rubbing alcohol and Champaign Shimmer Paint.  Usually this doesn't photograph well but I think this picture managed to capture some of the sparkle.  The line of stamping along the bottom of the card is a stamp in another Sale-A-Bration set called Fresh Vintage, again expect to see a fair bit of this set on my blog as well!  

Happy Stamping
