Pocketful of Sunshine

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  We attended a potluck dinner at the clubhouse of our new home and met lots of new neighbors!


I participated in WAY too many New Catalog swaps last month.  I committed to them before our move…not realizing how out-of-sorts the move would make me…not to mention that I wouldn’t be able to find my stamping supplies easily!  But, I felt that I would need some samples for my stamp clubs to see…and I wouldn’t be able to make them up myself!  So…good news is that I have a lot of new card samples…but they are wanting me to BUY more new stuff!  Of course…that’s the purpose, right?


Here’s one swap card I made using the new Pocketful of Sunshine.   I had to make 21 of them!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those sunglasses!  I’ve been wanting something like them for a long time!  Paired them with the new Starburst punch that looks like a sun…and the yummy new Lemon Lime Twist bright cardstock!  Perfect!  This is actually the second version of the card…will show you the first one in a few days!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Paper was placed along the right edge of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Lucky Lime Twist Ribbon hides the seam and wraps to the back to adhere.
  • You Dazzle Me from Pocketful of Sunshine was stamped on Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched with the Starburst Punch then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sunglasses were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Lucky Lime Twist cardstock, then cut with the Pocket Framelits.  It was placed on the sun with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the sunglasses in the corners and then on the top of the Whisper White cardstock for a little bling.
