Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share Day 2: Kraft-y Bits of Sunshine

Hey folks! Welcome to Day 2 of the Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share celebrating Close To My Heart's April Stamp of the Month: My Sunshine.

Today's card project was inspired by a clean and simple challenge from the folks over at The Kraft Journal.

And here it is....

The base is Kraft cardstock (obviously!) on which I randomly stamped clouds in White Daisy Exclusive Ink. (I stamped the back with clouds, too.) The cloud stamp is from the CTMH Chantilly Workshop On The Go. (Love that set!) The pennant banner is made from Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon layered with a strip of patterned paper from Dream Pop. The sentiment is from the April Stamp Of The Month: My Sunshine, and is stamped in Honey Exclusive Ink on White Daisy cardstock. The hot air balloon is cut from White Daisy cardstock using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge. (I love how our stamps coordinate with our Cricut cartridges, don't you?) I stamped the balloon (also from My Sunshine) in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink, and sponged the basket with a little Honey Exclusive Ink, which I covered with yellow stickles for added sparkle. I used glitter gel for the flag pole and added a bit of Dream Pop to cover the flag.

Here's a couple of close-ups:

And here it is, once again:

I hope you enjoyed my little bit of hot air and sunshine. Remember, My Sunshine can be yours for $5 with any qualifying order of $50 or more, or you can purchase it on its own for $17.95. It is available through 30 April. Now hop on over and see what bit of Sunshine Kraft-y Queen Lynn Darda has for you at From My Bungalow!

We'll see you tomorrow for Day 3 of the Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share and a little more fun with My Sunshine.
