Frantic Stamper Sunshine

I wanted to share a couple more cards I've made using the wonderful Frantic Stamper April release.  Both cards today feature the cute, Happy Stitch Sun (FRA-DIE-10958) and this first card also uses Be Proud Words (FRA-DIE-10967) from the newest release as well as Snow Capped Mountains (FRA-DIE-10334) from a previous release.  

A background was created with a white cardstock panel and distress oxide ink blending.  DOI colors used were Faded Jeans, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Scattered Straw.  Blending was done using blending brushes.  The sun, mountains and sentiment were die cut and adhered to the background as shown above.  The center of the sun was mounted with foam tape to give a little extra dimension.  The completed panel was mounted on a kraft cardstock card blank.

The second card also uses Happy Stitch Sun (FRA-DIE-10958) which I think pairs wonderfully with the Happy Stitch Rainbow (FRA-DIE-10957). Little clouds (FRA-DIE-09170) from a previous release  and Positive Vibes stamp set (FRA-CL-169) from this release were also used for this card.

This background was created by watercoloring Distress Inks on watercolor paper.  I used Twisted Citron and Broken China.  After the background was dry, I flicked it with a wet brush to add the water droplets.  The sun, rainbow and clouds were die cut and colored with distress ink using a blending brush. Colors used are as follows -

Sun - Scattered Straw

Clouds - Faded Jeans

Rainbow - Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, Salty Ocean

The clouds were adhered to the background.  On top of that, the rainbow was popped up using foam tape and then the sun was adhered to the rainbow as shown above.  The panel was mounted on a white cardstock card blank.

Finally, the sentiment was stamped, colored and mounted with more foam tape.

I hope these cards give you a little inspiration.  It's always nice to be able to send sunshine greetings to friends.  Check out Frantic Stamper, I think you will be very pleased with there stamps and dies and all the products you need for your crafting.
