Create Your Own Sunshine: Scrapbook Adhesives Hop

Greetings! It's time for another fun hop with the Stampendous team. We are featuring fantastic products by Scrapbook Adhesives this week, and you are sure to fall in love with their products if you don't use and love them already.  And yes, there are of course prizes! Check them out in the banner below, and visit the Stampendous Blog for all of the details regarding them. 

So for my project today, I have a card. Sometimes, you see a stamp, and you just fall in love....right? That's no just me, I hope! Well, that's what happened with this stamp from Stampendous. It's called Create Sunshine. There's just some thing...or things...that I absolutely love on this image, so it was one of the first that I worked on for our April catalog. 

1. Stamp the image with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and color using the Tombow colors listed. Die cut the image using the smaller "P" Fitted Frame. Cut the corrugated turquoise cardstock with the larger "P" Fitted Frame. Use foam squares to pop the colored layer up off of the turquoise mat. 

2. Create the card base using Banana Pepper cardstock cut to 8" x 5 1/2" and fold in half. Sprinkle Chunky White Embossing Enamel around the edges of the card base and heat set from underneath. It's good to work with only 2 sides at a time so that the enamel doesn't spill before you heat set it. 

3. Cut cork sheet with Letter "B" and cut in half (on the short side). Affix to the card base with Zip Dry glue. Attach mat and top layer to card base with more foam squares.

Below you'll see a photo of one of my daughter's dress-up dresses. You may recognize it.... It's Anna's from Frozen Fever. I didn't realize how nicely it coordinated with the dress until I had finished the card. She had been wearing it for days before I made the card, so I guess I was subconsciously influenced by it. 

Below is the list of hoppers that have projects to share with you today. Please be sure to visit them all, ad leave them some love! You don't want to miss out on the chance to win prizes. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
