Hello Sunshine!

Hello and good morning!! Angel here with my very first blog post as a FIT design team member and I could not be more excited!!! I have been on a mini vacation with my mom, boys, sisters, nieces and nephew for the past few days. It was a blast but now it's back to reality and being crafty! 

I am sharing a bright and cheerful card today with a set that is older to Lawn Fawn but newer to me. 


I started out with white card stock cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 to make a top folding card. I stamped the small heart using Versafine black onyx ink around the outer edges. Next I used a large rectangle stackable die to cut a piece of vellum the exact side of the card a place over the hearts to mute them a little. I used a different sized rectangle stackable to die cut a sunflower notecard and then an even smaller rectangle stackable to die cut a piece of white card stock. 


The white piece is popped up on the card using fun foam for some added dimension. I stamped the sun using Sunflower ink pad to match the yellow notecard. I just love how it ties in well with each other. I used the hello die cut to cut out the word four times and glue together to give lots of dimension. 


I stamped the word 'sunshine' in Versafine black onyx ink and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder to give it a glossy look. I stamped the bird on a scrap piece of the yellow notecard and fussy cut it out. Next I stamped the bird on the white piece (while holding my breath not to mess it up) and then glued the bird on top to make it look like it was standing on the word die. 


I finished off the card by using my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the sun and the hello word die for a little bling. I then added some sparkling clear sequins for even more bling. I just don't know when to stop sometimes but empty space tends to freak me out at times. 


I hope that you have enjoyed my first post for today and that it inspired you to pull out an older set or one you haven't used in a while and put it to good use!! 

Have a great day!

  1. I love this! I think it's so cool when I see people using the older Lawn Fawn sets, because I love everything Lawn Fawn and as far as I'm concerned, all of it will always be good! :) Your card is so adorable and bright, this would put a smile on anyone's face! And I am like you, I freak out over white space too, LOL! Thanks for sharing and congrats on your place on the DT! How exciting! Hugs!
