May Your Day Be Filled with Sunshine

Using supplies in new and unexpected ways is one way to extend their usefulness and get a lot more bang for your buck.


Kimberly’s happy card demonstrates this technique with the Trendy Triangle stamp set and Triangles Die-namics. The card base, embossed with the Cloudy Day Stencil, provides a serene backdrop to the shiny, smile-inducing sun.

Mounting the circle sentiment and sun rays with foam adhesive adds dimension. Kimberly also created a slight shadow effect by stamping her sentiment twice, shifting the image ever-so-slightly before creating the second impression. Card making doesn’t have to be time-consuming or require a laundry list of supplies – with just a handful of versatile supplies and a single ink pad, she’s managed to create card anyone would be so pleased to receive.

    Love it! Made me smile – love the bright yellow. I would love to see a feature on ways to use stamps that are not the obvious intention – like what you did with your card.

    On a recent trip to Florida my husband and I had the honour of touring your facility. I was like a kid in a candy store… I want it all. Thank you for your hospitality. I look forward each month for the new releases to see the next item I can’t live without. Keep up the good work! Shirley
