Sunny Thoughts February Stamp of the Month

It is February and still cold here in the South! Sunny Thoughts (S1802) is a great 'SUNSHINE' stamp set with beautiful sunny images.

Mingled within the beautiful sentiments are some cute little flowers, sprigs and sprays. A big circle sentiment ready for a 2 1/2" circle making it perfect for either the basic shape Thin Cuts or the Cricut.

My card is a sunburst using 2" x 4 3/4" strips cut in half on the diagonal. I used three different patterns and one solid from the Make Waves paper collection. You will need 16 (4 of each pattern and cardstock) total wedges to complete the sunburst. 

The base of the starburst is a White Daisy piece of cardstock cut at 5 1/4" x 4". Next, I drew a line down the center vertically and about 2 inches down I drew a second line horizontally. This gives me the look of a cross with four sections, two small at the top and to longer at the bottom. 

I lined up the first piece with the pointed end in the intersection of the two lines I drew and even with the left side of the vertical line. Align the next piece right against the first piece. You should get all four pieces within the first section. Move to the next section and repeat all the way around.

I finished by matting a White Daisy piece (3 3/4" x 5") on to a Black mat (4" x 5 1/4") and stamped the 'have a sunny day' sentiment with the floral spray at the bottom and a blossom at the top. And don't forget to add a little something to the envelope.

During February, you can purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a qualifying $50 order. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying order.

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
