Hi creative peeps!! Today it’s Ellen, writing this blog post. Here I will show you two super vibrant cards. So if you need some sunshine in between these clouds, well you’re in the right place!

In Belgium (where I live), it’s raining a lot. Spring really makes us waiting on the good weather this year. That’s why I want to send out some sunshines to my friends.

Below I will explain how I created the cards. Both cards are mainly made with Gina K. products made for ThermOWeb.

I started out with creating a background. For this I used masking paper (Masking Magic Sheets) with a circle that was as big as the circle on my stencil (Gina K. Designs for Therm O Web Stencil, Tropical Sunshine). When the background had a purple color I removed my masking paper and inked a sun with the help of the stencil. Afterwards I did stamped some of the elements from the Tropical Sunshine stamp set.

Next I did add the beach, palmtrees and the word sunshine (Gina K. Designs for Therm O Web Die Set, Tropical Sunshine). For the word sunshine I used the Solid black Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts and the Wild Lilac Fancy Transfer Foil. If you run both through a hot laminator you have a pretty foiled piece of paper. You can simply cut it as other paper in your diecutting machine.

As you could see on the first picture, I also made a second card.

On this card I used a lot of the same techniques, so I’m not going to repeat it in the blog post. The only thing I want to mention is that I also used some pretty White Glitz Glitter Gel. You can simply apply the gel by using a stencil and a the Stencil Pal.

Both cards make me so happy, so I hope these cards bring you some good vibes too!!
