More with ..... Pocketful Of Sunshine!

This was the second card I designed using the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle for my Team Training make and take this month.

This time I used the pocket as it was meant to be - for the last card it was glued flat. I slotted the map inside and added the sunglasses so that it looked like they were hooked into the top of the pocket.

I love the little pocket tab that comes with this set ... and all the cute sentiments that fit inside it!

The large sentiment is one of those in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Carols Of Christmas - No.6

Good Morning! I have another beautiful Carols of Christmas card to share today!

I love this one! Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler is a lovely traditional Christmas colour combination.

This is my favourite of the two sentiments in this set - not because of the wording but because of the white highlights in each letter - it looks like they are all shining :o) I used the largest of our Layering Oval framelits to create the sentiment panel.

The corner cut out framelits are gorgeous! You get two of them so you only have to run them through the Big Shot twice to complete the panel. AND ... one of them will also cut out the flowers perfectly - you may want to make a mark on the one that does this, so it's easy to find when needed :o)

I used Stampin' Markers to ink up the little Holly stamp before cutting it out with another of the coordinating thinlit dies.

You may notice that the glitter in the centre of the flowers is not very neat :o) I had a few problems :o) ..... mainly with remembering that I had put it on there! I kept putting other cards on top of it before it dried .... so I added more glue .... and more glitter ..... then made the same mistake again! It's been a while since I used glitter ... especially now that we have the Wink of Stella ... so that's my excuse! Hopefully I'll get the hang of it again soon! :o)

Pocketful Of Sunshine

The Pocketful of Sunshine bundle was not one that immediately called to me from the new Annual Catalogue. BUT ... I bought it because I like a challenge and like to do something different from time to time :o)

I know many love this bundle .... and I can now see why :o) It's a really fun set .... and like I said, different to the normal floral or cutesy sets that I like.

I decided to design a couple of cards using the bundle for my Team Training make and takes this month. I knew none of my ladies had this set yet, so it gave them an opportunity to play .... and fall in love with it :o)
