You Are My Sunshine


This is my second post for today, no more I promise. Really easy card that I had an idea for so decided to go with the flow. Card base masked off at the top fold then I blended my Tim Holtz Distress inks, Lemonade, Mustard and Fossil. Kept it very light at the bottom. once I was happy with the blending, I added an acetate top that already has all the white dots on it - easy peasy.


I then added the die cut sentiment 'Sunshine' in silver glossy card stock . Once it was dry and secure on the acetate I stamped 'you are my' in Stazon black ink. Boy that stuff has a strange odour!!! The stamping looks very light but is actually quite clear IRL.


I secured the acetate by folding at the top with a bone folder and then taping onto the back of the card. Its just a small overhang. A perfect card for another hot as Summers day,.

This is a really pretty and easy card and a great way to practice your blending if you don't feel you are getting it right. The acetate I bought came in a number of different colours and dots as well as stripes so could make a nice set.

Okay time to get this into a challenge or two:

definitely ombre  

This was left open to our interpretation so I see that as whatever we would like to 
add that is Clean and Simple. This card is my interpretation of OPEN.

Thats it for now so thank you for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

  1. What a great idea! I hadn't realised you'd used acetate over the top - it looks like some really fancy technique!

  3. WOW! Love the yellow ombre on the background. The polka dot acetate overlay mellows the colour down and makes the sentiment pop! Perfect sentiment! Love your card. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Ombre Challenge!
