Sunshine Sayings One Sheet Wonder!

Hello Friends!

I wanted to use the Sunshine Sayings Bundle (#142339) to make a set of cards using the One Sheet Wonder method.  The Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set is so versatile with 20 sentiments and 4 images.  If you count the words separately (thinking combinations here), there are 37 (if I've counted correctly). The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits also have words:  hope, love, congrats and sunshine, in addition to 3 great embelishment dies.  Oh the possibilities!

I stamped a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White Cardstock (#100730) and cut it using a template I found online by Kimberley Morris @procrastistamper:

Here are my 10 cards:

 Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by!  Please leave me a comment and if you'd like to purchase the Sunshine Sayings bundle and any other Stampin' Up! goodies, please visit my online store at:

ICS Blog Hop Introducing 2016-2018 In Colors

Hello and welcome to the July Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month our theme is the new set of Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2016-2018. 

Here they are!  Meet Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum:

I wanted to use the combination of Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum, but I thought it needed a third In Color.  I picked my trusty friend Mint Macaron as the accent color and I think it works:

I used the following Stampin' Up! products for these projects:

Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron and Whisper White Cardstock
2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack

Combining a Color and Sketch Challenge!


This card is a first for me in a couple of different ways.  It's my first card submission to the Global Design Project, for Global Design Project #042/Sketch Challenge, and my first time posting as a challenger at for the CYCI#127 Color Challenge. 

First, here is the #GDP042 sketch inspiration:

 At CYCI, the Color Challenge is Blue, Turquoise, and Lime (along with neutrals):

I really enjoyed putting all the details on this card, and using the sketch and colors to create.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
