This month’s stamp of the month Sunny Thoughts is a great stamp set to have for Birthday’s or Just sending a special note to someone. Full of flowers & sayings this Stamp Of The Month set is very versatile.
You can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product. And seeing that February is a short month – you do not have as many days to get this one – so don’t delay & miss out.
This month I made a few different cards as I had a nice long weekend to sit down with this stamp set & play so that I could showcase how versatile this set is.
First Up is a simple card where the Chelsea Gardens paper is the hero of the story. I added the border stamp (which I love from the Sunny Thoughts Stamp set) on either side of the paper feature & double stamped in Glacier (I wanted the blue a darker shade) & fussy cut these out & glued over the flowers stamped in sweet leaf. I added a party banner for the flowers to adorn. All up it made for a very pretty card.
The next card is a Tri Fold Card Close with partial Die Cut as the closure. I played around with this card idea months ago but only decorated the card recently. The hardest part was what should I colour the butterfly with as I didn’t want to cut another one to place on top. In the end I went with watercolour pencils with no water. I might go over with a shimmer brush later. But I love how the Thank you card turned out.
This card is a modified design based on Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 4 patten 12. I was playing with mixing papers and before I knew it this card came about & was perfect to use the Birthday sentiment in the Sunny Thoughts stamp of the month set. Again I did some fussy cutting with the flowers to get the different colours for the flower petals & the leaves.
If you liked to play with Sunny Thoughts – February Stamp of the Month, all you need to do is add it to your cart at full retail price of $27 OR, with your qualifying order of $75, add it at checkout for the promotional price of $7.50. You only have until Feb 28th, to own it.
