Rainbows & Sunshine Happy Birthday Card

 Hello Stampers!  

Well, I had so much fun last week doing the Atlantic Card Sketch Chellenge, I decided to do another one!  I made it using the really cute Rainbows & Sunshine DSP, which is a Sale-a-bration FREEBIE until the end of February.  I think it is just the prettiest paper!  I paired it with the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.

I used sketch 460 from Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge.  Here it is:

The card really was easy to pull together.  A little stamping, punching some cute clouds with the cloud punch, and some gluing and just like that, card done!
  • I stamped the sentiment on two clouds punched from Basic White CS, one in Melon Mambo and one in Bermuda Bay.
  • I punched some clouds from the Rainbow and Sunshine DSP as well as the rainbow and assembled them on top of another piece of  the DSP which was the background piece. 
  • I scattered some blue Waves basic jewels from the new Suite coming in the next Annual catalog. 
  • I added another sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set on the card inside in Melon Mambo ink and a corner of rainbow in the corner of the card inside.

On the envelope front, I stamped the heart full strength once, then twisted the stamp to just slightly overlap the hearts and stamped again without re-inking, and did that on both lower corners.

I sponged a cloud in Bermuda Bay ink using the negative space from the cloud punch out as a mask.  Some matching DSP on the envelope flap completed it!

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  If you want to recreate this card, the  measurements and supplies I used are below.  If you live in the USA and don't already have a demonstrator, I would love to assist you with your crafting needs.  If you would like a copy of the new catalog or a calendar of my class schedule, please let me know, and I will be glad to send you one.

Until next time...
Happy Stamping!
