Sweet Vintage Sunshine


I recently got some stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop and wanted to have a play with them before they collected too much dust.  Is anyone else like that?  There's nothing like receiving new stamps to make me suddenly get interested in my old stock!  


Anyway, the Sweet Vintage set has a flourishy frame that looked to me like the sun so I used the colours from the Just Us Girls challenge and created a happy little sunrise with it.      


And it's Anything Goes time over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge again so get your cards in for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate!! 


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pacific Point, Pool Party, Crushed Curry) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Fram from Sweet Vintage) Sweet Stamp Shop, (Hello from Mat Stack 3, Friend from Mat Stack 2) PTI
Ink:  (Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Nesties Labels Small & Label Large) Spellbinders

omgosh, it's a perfect sun! Love that! And yep, somehow getting new stamps makes me think about digging out old ones. How does that even work?

Perfect CAS card. When I get new stamps, I seem suddenly lost as to what I ever wanted to do with them! :P

Another great CAS design, lovin' all that gorgeous white space! I try and picture what I can make with my new stamps before I buy them.. so when they arrive I usually already know what I'm going to do. (Otherwise I found that I would get overwhelmed and they can just sit there.)

What a fun and happy card. Love how you made a sun out of something else.

Such a beautiful card, Jen! Love the sun - makes up for the nasty storm that moved in and took away my sunset tonight. :( Hope you are doing well!
