So it's your choice this month...2 cards using the same SUN stamp, die cut, or stencil, or 2 cards using the same MOON stamp, die cut, or stencil. Or maybe a card with a SUN and a card with a MOON that both use the same stamp, die cut, or stencil?? The choice is yours and we can't wait to see what YOU come up with!!
Figured I'd better show you this photo first so you understand what I did! I die cut a small circle out and used it as a mask for my MOON card, and used the piece with the circle opening as a stencil for my SUN card. Take a look:
Using that same circle I made a Christmas card with a MOON behind the tree's on the left, and that circle also worked as a SUN for my Hello Summer card.
I started this card with my mask (MOON) in place and then blended Bundled Sage, Speckled Egg, Stormy Sky, & Faded Jeans Distress Inks for my background. I also added some water droplets and some white splattered paint to mimic the look of snow. Once everything dried, I removed my mask and had a nice little MOON on my background! Next I added a couple die cut hills (PTI's In The Meadow dies) and 3 die cut tree's from Penny Black's Tall Tree's dies. My sentiment is from Penny Blacks Merry Delight stamp set.
For my Hello Summer card I started by blending some yellow and orange inks through the circle die cut for my SUN, and then used MFT's Cloud Stencil for some clouds at the top and then flipped the same stencil upside down to make some waves for the water. I added a torn strip of kraft cardstock to the bottom of the card for a sandy beach area. I don't know how well you can see it, but I added PTI's Sun & Surf Stencil Collection over the top of my card and inked it up with Versamark and then removed the stencil and heat set it with clear embossing powder. You can definitely see the rays at the bottom on the sandy beach area, but the rest of the card really shines IRL!!
Had to have this sweet little Pure Innocence girl (MFT - Sunny Days Ahead) because of the unicorn floaty ring...you may remember that my 5 year old granddaughter LOVES unicorns and I knew she would get a kick out of this image!! I cut a slit into my top wave so I was able to slide my little die cut girl in and make it look like she is jumping in and out of the waves!
This challenge is open till the 24th, and we can't wait to see what YOU come up with using the prompt SUN/MOON! Check out all the great inspiration from the DT and our Special GD's right HERE. Have fun and remember to make your cards different...2 different designs please! :0)
