You are my Sunshine: Sunburst Thinlets make my day

You are my sunshine starburst diecut framelis rays sunny Stampin Up card

Oh, friends, I've had my eye on this Sunburst Thinlet die since it came out last year, and it never quite made it onto an order until last week. I am SO glad I got this! It makes me SO happy! I mean seriously, who could see a card like this and not smile? It's the tail-end of winter here in Wisconsin and I need all the sunshine I can get, whether it's a cheery color of cardstock, the result of a color-based personality quiz, or a "folded hug" in my mailbox.

If you'd like to make this at home, here's what I used:

I got just such a folded hug from my Australian demonstrator friend Linda Dalke in the mail this week. I was teasing her in a chat forum about not liking So Saffron. I told her it was one of my very favorite colors, and I was going to make her a card that would change her mind!

So she asked me what MY least-loved color is right now, and then she sent me this gorgeous Flirty Flamingo sample to change my mind.


I just love how she used the Delicate Lace Doily in two different ways–once as a stencil, for the background, and once pressed into Versamark, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. It's so glamorous! Lovely card, Linda!


I think we got each other to look at these colors in a new light! It's fun to send and receive cards. Don't ever underestimate the simple pleasure of opening the mailbox and discovering there is a little personal bit of love in there, just for you.

Who needs a card from you today?
