Cup o' Sunshine


Hi there!  Happily, I got a little time in the Craft Cave this morning and managed to make a card for two challenges. I started off playing along with the Runway Inspired challenge.  I wanted to have a dominant yellow feature on the card. Initially I wasn't sure exactly what that feature would be but I started playing around with the Here Comes the Sun background stamp by Market Street Stamps.  I was dithering on where to go with it and thought morning sun = tea or coffee and the Paper Players challenge this week is to use a cup or cups.  So I grabbed the MSS Daily Grind set and paper pieced the mug.  The steam is from Paper Smooches' Hot Concoctions and the sentiment is Lawn Fawn's Sunny Skies set.  It's a totally different card than I thought I was going to make but I really like it!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Mug from Daily Grind, Here Comes the Sun) Market Street Stamps, (Steam from Hot Concoctions) Paper Smooches, (Sentiment from Sunny Skies) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko, (Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie) Stampin' Up

I'm loving the yellow! Isn't it fun when we end up going in a totally different direction than we planned? In card making. Not in the car. I hate it when that happens in the car.
