Week 201 - Sunshine

Today, we’re looking for a little sunshine over at CASology.  Not because we’re down in the dumps or experiencing gloomy weather, but because we all like a dose of the stuff as often as possible!  Over the years, I’ve liked the thought of creating my own sunshine when things around me aren’t so bright.  Granted, I am human and it doesn’t work 100% of the time…but I try.  This week, we have a brand new sponsor, Rubber Dance Stamps, and I used some of their wonderful stamps for my CAS design.  I am in love with this sentiment!

2016 June7 SUNSHINE

I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine spritzes to ink up the fun spiral circle from the Round in Circles set, stamping it first onto the card base.  I then stamped the lovely sentiment from the Think Again stamp set on top of the main image to preserve white space.  There is a subtle sparkle to the spiral sun and I tried to get a better photo to show you…

…but alas, it’s still not exactly noticeable in the photo.  Rest assured, the recipient of this card will see it clearly!

I hope you’ll take some time to visit the blogs of our sponsor, the design team and guest designer this week, leaving some blog love!  Then, don’t forget to link up your own SUNSHINE creation on the CASology blog for your chance to win the prize from Rubber Dance Stamps!

    Melissa, this card is just amazing! I do love that sentiment…I love the whole set, actually! Your spirals make a perfect sun, a very cool, graphic card. I’ll bet the sparkle is amazing in real life!

    Thank you, Melissa! I love your card and it’s fun to see how you’ve combined two of my stamps to make it. I never thought of using the sprial with the sun sentiment, but they’re a perfect match!! I’m so glad I got the opportunity to sponsor CASology. I wish you a sunny week 🙂
    Big hug! ♥
