Aloha Sunshine.....

Hello everyone: This week at CASology the Cue Card is SUNSHINE and over at Addicted to CAS the Code Word is ALOHA so, I'm combining this two challenges and created this card.


Ok, have you ever been looking for something and, in the process, find something else that has nothing to do with what you were looking for in the first place? Well, this happened to me yesterday afternoon, when I was looking for the glue gun and glue sticks and found, at the very bottom of this drawer, under some super old SU Bigz dies (remember those?), the glue gun and the bag of glue sticks, this pretty Lily flower die, also from Sizzix, how did this got there? I will never know but I created this card with it for this two fun challenges.
The die cuts the flower and the stigma, I sponged the flower with Barn Red distress ink and the stigma was placed on top of the Squeeze Lemonade distress ink pad and I push it with the scoring tool to saturate it with the ink and then, placed it on the container of the clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.


I punched a small circle for the sun and used both, the negative and the positive parts to sponge the sun with Daffodil Delight. The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Sunny Harvest stamp set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the same set, the sprig of flowers on the corner is from a retired SU set called "Nature Walk".
Here are the banners that inspired my card.




Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Patti, I was so surprised about this die, I don't remember buying it, let alone, loosing it. It' was lucky that I needed the glue gun to put some small hooks for my kitchen towels inside the cabinet doors. The sun is super easy, my friend.....after sponging inside the punched circle, I use the outside of it for the "rays" I put the punched out circle on top of the "sun" and go around it, flicking the sponge douber then, using the edge of the dauber, I flick it to form the rays, hope this helps.

  4. That sponging on the petals adds such a velvety feel to the petals of that exotic bloom - it looks beautifully bathed in the sunlight! A lovely example of how well three elements work on a CAS card. Just gorgeous, Maria! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!
