Silver Lining

Welcome back!

Today's card is a sneak peek of some of the stamps in the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the matching Tree Builder punch, both of which will be available when the new Stampin' Up! catalogue goes live June 2.  It also uses a couple of products from the Hooray It's Your Day Simply Created kit that is still available in the Occasions catalogue also until June 2.

I started with a 3 3/4" square of Whisper White paper, using a stencil from the card kit to create the rays of sun with a sponge dauber inked up in Daffodil Delight ink.  A circle of card stock was then punched and also inked up to increase the intensity of color.

The clouds were stamped in Smoky Slate on the same color card stock, then punched out with the Tree Builder punch. Are they not cute?  You can also use them as mounds of ice cream on top of a cone stamp also included in the stamp set.  Lots of fun to be had with this set!

The "silver lining" was created with Encore Silver pigment ink and a blender pen.  I had to go over it a couple of times to get the appropriate intensity, as the pigment ink seemed to fade as it dried.

I used this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers as the basis for my layout.  I had to flip the little flags to accommodate the rays of sun.

Thanks for the visit today!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  Do use the link above and check out all the amazing creativity using this sketch at SCS.
