Criss Crossing the Miles

Hello Again!

Today is my final day as Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Guest Designer.  May just flew right by!

This card features the Across the Miles set.  I stamped the arrows in a pattern and added the plane.  The color scheme comes from the Design Seeds website.  It is a great place to get color inspiration if you are stuck in a rut!  The sentiment is stamped in black and then again in Blushing Bride, just slightly offsetting it to give it a shadow effect. 

This card uses the Head in the Clouds set and the matching dies-
I stamped the cloud images in craft white ink, heat embossed with white ep and then die cut them out.  This sketch is from Retrosketches-another great place to get inspired if you are stuck in a rut! I haven't participated in a challenge in a while, so it was fun to play along!

I do not have a sun die, so I diecut two stars and layered them to create the sun rays.  The sun itself is made with a circle punch.   I added a yellow felt bow, sponging it with ink to brighten it up a bit to match the cs.  The bow and the stitching mimic the kite tails in the dp.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Lee Ann  :)
