Hello Sunshine


Just a few cards that I have made using stencils - they are pretty bright....do you have your sunglasses on?!

Here I have just inked through a journaling card to create a bold greeting.  I have used picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, scattered straw and squeezed lemonade distress inks.  Love this summer colour combo!  It was inspired by Jocelyn Olson's card in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I have used my new (to me) Uniko Studio Flower Power stamps on this card.  The background is stencilled using a Simon Says Stamp stencil - this will get lots of use!  The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love. 
As the Uniko stamps are new I will join up with Darnell's fab Never Before Used Schtuff Challenge:
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)
along with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to use stencils and Time Out Challenge with a summer theme and optional twist of flowers.
I hope you are having a good week - see you again soon!

  1. Wonderful bright and summery cards, Sarah. The second one is perfect for the TIME OUT challenge. Thanks for joining us.

  2. You give new meaning to the word "stunning," Sarah!! These are very stunning! This whole post just screams summer!! I love that first one in how it makes me think of a California vanity license plate and the second one is a layout and floral pattern that I love!! You have a great eye for design!! It will be a pleasure to watch you in the coming months as I see a future in which you are asked to serve on many challenge Design Teams!! Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge again! Hugs, Darnell
