She's a Pocketful of Sunshine

Pocketful of Sunshine Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Thirteen, do you remember turning 13?  It's the nebulous stage between little girl and woman.  Today's Pocketful of Sunshine Birthday Card is for my niece, Tori, who turns 13 this month.  The Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set is a fun choice for that in between stage.  It's cute, it's playful and it's just a little bit grown up.

Design Tips

Who doesn't love Polka Dots and checks?  I added a splash of checks by only inking a small portion of my Buffalo Check background stamp.  The polka dots were introduced with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

For texture, I heat embossed in White my stitched pocket stamps from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Then, I embossed the whole pocket with the Subtle Embossing Folder to make it look like fabric.

Every 13 year old girl needs a little bling, so I added Silver Pool Party Baker's Twine and a sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins.

Cutting the pocket with the Pocket Framelit dies creates a nifty pocket for inserting a little cash or gift.  The fold over tabs make a perfect pocket.

A complete list of supplies for today's card are listed at the bottom of this post along with clickable links for your shopping convenience.

Pocketful of Sunshine Stampin' Up!

I borrowed the bright and cheerful color combination of aqua, red and silver from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  I used Coastal Cabana and Real Red Ink and added a splash of silver with my silver pool party baker's twine.

Add a little sunshine to someone's life.  Make a card with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamps.

Have a fabulous day,

Wishing You Well Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you new to stamping and Card Making?  Or have you been around the block a few times, but still prefer the quick and simple, Back to Basics type cards?  You like to stamp, but your time is limited.  Simply seeing what happens when you combine stamps, ink and paper brings you joy.  If that's you, stop back every Tuesday for a Simple Stamping project here at Stamping Country.

One of my very favorite stamp sets for Simple Stamping is the Wishing You Well stamp set.  I especially like to stamp the bow.  Tap, tap, tap your stamp to your ink pad, apply to your paper and watch the magic.  The Wishing You Well bow almost looks 3-D.
