COVID-19 Sharing Sunshine in my Jammies

During these uncertain times, it’s always nice to remind someone that they are loved and missed…and to #sharesunshine with them. Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up CEO posted this:

COVID-19 Jammies

These cards feature one of the sentiments from the Share Sunshine PDF. I tried making it look like a jammie top with the small gingham. For the buttons, I decided to go with some very old Corduroy Buttons that haven’t been available for over a decade. They are brads, so I just used my jewelry wire cutters to cut off the prongs and adhered them with glue dots. Easy peasy and so stinkin’ cute! The card above has already been received by a special someone and the one below will find its way to its recipient tomorrow!

I haven’t participated in any stamping challenges lately, so I looked through some of my favorite blogs and decided to enter a card in the Watercooler Wednesday Blog challenge. This week’s challenge is:

I was looking though my Pinterest folder Cards – Folds and found the Triangle Fun Fold Card by Jackie Bolhuis at klompenstampers.com.

#JOSTTT006 June Challenge – Perennial Beauty

Time for a new monthly challenge over at The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe challenge blog (check it out here)! I was super excited to be named one of their top 3 for last month’s May challenge. (You can see my entry here.)JOSTTT Top 3Here’s the #JOSTTT006 June Challenge:#JOSTTT006I did the second row: Pattern Paper – Banner – Floral

I am featuring items from the Perennial Essence Suite on pages 106-107 of the new Annual Catalog. This Designer Series Paper…Oh My! It is beyond beautiful! I kept the card simple to highlight this gorgeous paper. The Vellum cardstock is soft and pretty and the Floral Centers are amazing! Just like it’s from a real flower! Wrap it all up with the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch and you have a quick and easy card.

I first stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry and I really liked it since it’s the same color as the Floral Center. However, when I showed it to Queen Hunter, she said she would prefer it stamped in Blackberry Bliss. Hence, two cards showing both options.
