April Sunshine

Hi everyone. My card today showcases a stamp from the new Elizabeth Bell Cottage Cutie Collection by Whimsy called ‘April Sunshine’ – it’s such a cute, versatile image and really lovely to colour! The sentiment on the front of the card is from the ‘With Love’ set of stamps designed by Tina Wenke for Stampavie – there’s a lovely range of sentiments stamps in this set that can be used for so many different occasions, so good value for money…and, of course, being Stampavie, they stamp beautifully.

The papers are Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love Cloudy Turquoise Hearts and Vintage Turquoise – such lovely soft shades…and the good news is, we have a weekend special on the Cloudy Hearts papers at The Stamp Basket this weekend!

The doily behind the image has been made using the Memory Box ‘Quinn Flourish’ – this is a lovely delicate die which would also look great as a focal point for a project. The border has been created using the Martha Stewart Edger ‘Doily lace’ punch and the dragonfly is the smaller baby ‘Willow Dragonfly’ from Memory Box. I’ve decorated the inside of the card to compliment the front, using a corner die from the Whimsy Corner die set, along with the Memory Box ‘Petite Umbrella’ die (optimistically, mine is a parasol!) and the Memory Box ‘Fancy Blossoms’ die set. The sentiments inside the card have been computer generated.

All products used are available at The Stamp Basket.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
