There are over 60 Close To My Heart Independent Consultants on this month's hop featuring the My Sunshine stamp set. Don't forget, with any $50 order of Close To My Heart products in April, you can get this stamp set for just $5! Most of the images coordinate with the Artiste Cricut cartridge. The plastic sheet that each image rests on tells you the size of the image to cut on your Cricut!
I chose the Chantilly Paper Packet to use the bird and sun images from My Sunshine. I popped them up using some 3-D Foam Tape and added a Bitty Sparkle for the bird's eye.
I just had to use that hot air balloon image on my second card! I stamped the balloon twice, once on the Cricut cut hot air balloon image in Outdoor Denim ink and again in Sweet Leaf on a scrap piece of cardstock. I trimmed the Sweet Leaf balloon strips and popped them up with 3-D Foam Tape. I used the Tiny Type Epoxy Alphabet (a new favorite!) to write "lets take off" and "TOGETHER" on the inside of the card.
I was inspired to create the dimensional clouds from Amy Koenders. To create the clouds on the Twilight cardstock, I cut out several sizes of clouds from the Artist cartridge. I used a little adhesive to keep them in place and then used my Paper Piercer to poke holes around the clouds. When I flipped over my cardstock, voila, little cloud shapes!
Now, hop on over to Krista Hershberger's blog to see how she's used My Sunshine.
