CTMH Consultant Blog Hop

~My Sunshine~

Welcome to our April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "My Sunshine" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from April 1 - 30, 2013.  You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create If you came from Darla of  Caution: Crafting is Contagious  then you are in the right place!

When I saw the name of this stamp set, it immediately took me back to being a little girl.  My dad would wake me up by singing "You are My Sunshine" and I remember it fondly.  My project is a simple card using only one small piece of cardstock .  The supplies used are:

Honey ink pad
Sunset ink pad
White Daisy cardstock
My Sunshine stamp set
Artiste cartridge

This card was very easy.  I started with a standard sized card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  I then used the circular subway art stamp to randomly stamp in both honey and sunset inks.  I then used my Artiste cartridge to cut out the coordinating image with the sun stamp.  I first stamped the sun in honey and then brushed the tips with the sunset pad.  I then used the cloud image with honey ink and randomly stamped the center to give it some background.   The final step was to use the Artiste cartridge again to cut out the small center shape that coordinates with the sentiment stamp.  That was done in sunset ink.
