Summer sun

It doesn't seem right that summer should be ending... sigh... Here is a summery, sunny card to remember the warmth of summer. This is one of the cards from my 2nd month as a Dirty Dozen designer at Splitcoaststampers - our theme that month was "What a Wonderful World". This is Soaking Up the Joy – it’s a digital image from illustrator Maurie Manning (better make sure I give her proper credit, since I covered up her signature!!)… I love the expression on her face - it just says “What a wonderful world!” to me. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. The flowers are made with Spellbinders’ Daisy Head dies – each flower has 3 layers of diecuts and 2 small punchies, that I attached together then misted and ‘scrunched’. The focal image is layered on a Blossoms 2 diecut, then layered over the negative space left by die cutting (hope that makes sense!). The sentiment is from smARTworks.
Hope this brightens your day!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the way you used the diecut to create a sun or base for your image, very cool! I have also have loved seeing the flowers you are creating from punches and diecuts. Thank you for sharing what you used to make these beautiful flowers! Such a sunny card! Hope you are having a good week.
