Sweet 'n Sassy Sunshine

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Friday Feature and Challenge, featuring the new stamp set, Sunshine and Flowers.  The doodled flowers in Sunshine & Flowers is a sweet set perfect for creating whimsical cards for that special someone!

For my first card, I stamped the floral image on Crumb Cake cs and then colored in with Prismacolor Pencils.  The sun is from the Happy Happy Stamp Set and was stamped on white cs and colored with Copics, then cut out with its matching die.  I used the Scallop Border Die to for my white scalloped edge.  

I wanted to try some masking for my second card and used the single daisy image in the Sunshine and Flowers Stamp Set.

I masked off the strip of cs where my sentiment would go and then stamped a flower on masking paper and cut it out.  I started stamping my flower image, and used the mask as I went along to give the spilling flowers some depth.  I also added an image from the Grunge Elements Stamp Set, stamping it in Smokey Slate.  I stamped off once before stamping on my card front, using the floral mask for this stamp as well.   Black lines were added with a Micron marker along the sentiment strip and then the sentiment from the Thankful Innies Stamp Set was stamped.  A few silver sequins and baker's twine finish it off!
I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Botanicals, as well a CASology 96, Flower.
