Excited to be guesting again this week over the Heart 2 Heart Challenges! This week it's all about Sunny Days! I created this one using the Little Acres Creations February release stamp set, Piles of Smiles! As soon as I saw this stamp set, this idea started formulating! And OF COURSE it has a coffee theme... I mean... are you new here??
I started this one using Distress Inks and a Tim Holtz Sunray stencil. I ink blended my background to look like a sunshiny morning and then added the sunrays using the stencil and some more of the same ink color where I would be putting my cup. You know... Sunny Days!
Then I die cut the ink blended background with a scalloped die and layered that on top of that beautiful Canary design paper from the CTMH Stargazer paper pack. And those pretty gold hearts are chipboard and are from the CTMH Springtime Complements pack.
I cut out two more of the same mat in Pear cardstock and then a few grassy layers using Lawn Fawn's grass border dies and layered them over each other at the bottom of the mat.
This stamp set is SO adorable! Love this pile of friends helping each other to reach the top of this huge coffee cup and get themselves a warm cuppa. That cute little bear.. he needs one badly.. that cute little teeny weeny cup was a gift from a crafty friend and it's perfect when my little critters want to indulge in some liquid gold! It's from Memory Box and I love it!
The huge cup is also from Memory box. I knew I wanted to use these beautiful sunflowers from the Little Acres Summer Blessings stamp set to decorate my cup. I like that they also fit the Sunny Days theme.. because they are SUNflowers! And that cute little foxy fox is also from the new Piles of Smiles set. He's waiting patiently to get his cup filled too.
And this sweet sentiment from the new set says it all I think. Love this one and the other sweet sentiments on this set. I think it's gonna be one of my fave sets!
