I stamped this image, colored it, matted it, etc. and then I wasn't sure what to do with it. So, I just happened to glance at a card that Harriet sent me using the Fall-To Layout #96 and that helped me decide how to finish it. I love all of Natasha's sketches. You can find her blog, Clean & SImple Stamping, here. My image (and sentiment, too) are from Repeat Impressions. I stamped the image on white cardstock with Stampin' Up! Going Gray. I colored the sun and sunbeams with Barely Banana and cut the entire image out. I stamped the image again on white and cut out the cloud. I mounted the cloud on Dimensionals. I glued the entire thing to a light blue oval and matted the oval with a white scalloped oval. I also added Crystal Stickles to the sun and sunbeams. The background paper is from a Die Cuts With a View Citrus matstack. It sparkles in real life, too - I wish you could see all the shimmering:)
Here is another card using the same stamps and layout. I colored the sun and sunbeams this time with Yo-Yo Yellow, and didn't cut it out. I embossed the bottom of the image panel with a Cuttlebug embossing border folder. I added glitter to the entire image. It really sparkles, too! I mounted it on Yo-Yo Yellow cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
