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.

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,

Country Livin' Stampin' Up!

Here's a close up.  Can you spot the Cajun Craze and the Blackberry Bliss?  While we're talking about Farmhouse, did you notice the new Chicken Wire?  You' also find that in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.

Besides Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze, I also used Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends to color today's Card.  Hint:  When Coloring with Alcohol Markers remember to use a water based ink such as Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so that your line art doesn't run.


Country Home Stampin' Up!

The plaid paper from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper Pack is actually meant to be Christmas Paper.  But as you can see by today's card it stretches well beyond Christmas.  To pull everything together I splattered a bit of Pool Party ink across my image.

Hope you enjoyed today's Sneak Peek.  Remember to use your Bonus Codes that you earned this month when you are shopping from the Holiday Catalog next month.
