Today I'm highlighting the Sunburst Thinlits Die and matching Sunburst Sayings stamp set – bundle them up and save 15%. I angled the "sun" and cut some of the rays shorter just to give it a different look. I punched out a "sun" from the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper. and popped it up with dimensionals.
The clouds are actually "tree tops" from the Build a Tree Punch. I added a few rhinestones for some bling and it's done!
Sometimes if I'm "stuck" trying to find my mojo I start by CASEing the cards right from the catalogues and then that gets me going and it's easier for me to come up with my own ideas. Here are my CASEd cards from the Occasions Catalogue using the featured stamps and thinlits.
This card uses the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack from the Sale-a-bration catalogue which is FREE with a $60 purchase. The Balloon Framelits is a great set of die and that's what was used for the Balloon, banner and silver tails.
If you don't have the Vellum paper here's an alternative way to make the card – I embossed the Pool Party card front with the Decorative Dots folder and used the Vellum Cardstock for the rays.
You create this card by using the Sunburst Thinlits Dies as a stencil – use sponges and ink to add colour.
