My Cards and Tags: Card Using Sunshine Girl Stamp

Happy weekend everyone!  I had a bit of time on my hands and made a card using this fabulous Sunshine Girl stamp by Journal Girl (Samie).

I started with a page from an old science book.  I cut a panel of letters using Simon Says Stamps' Alphabet Blocks die.  It's a great die because you can use the letters individually or use the whole panel as an interesting background.  Once I glued the alphabet panel down, I smeared on white paint and magenta paint, both by Dina Wakley.  I added some Distress Ink smears.  I also stamped on some faux stitches and some circles using Simon Says Stamp's Scribble Flowers set.  

I stamped and cut my girl out of beige paper, then made her a fabric scrap dress and glued her to my card.  I found the "Good things happen" sentiment in an old book and thought it went along nicely with the image and the book page which chronicles achievements in science.

The snow is still piling up in my neck of the woods, so I appreciate this Sunshine Girl stamp even more!


  1. We are getting dumped on, also so the sunshine girl appeals to me as well! Especially on a science book page!!!

  2. Lots of rain here in Phoenix this year (which is a good thing). Love the styling of this one, wouldn't be the same without the fabric and bright pops of color in your signature style. Nuclear physics? Perhaps only a good thing in the right hands.

  3. We are gray and rainy here in Victoria,BC so this little ray of sunshine really made me smile today. I never really thought of putting dresses on the stamped images! thanks for the inspiration there. I do hope you get out from under the white stuff soon. I do enjoy snow but it's the muck afterwards that sucks. Oh and the ice.

  4. Andrea, snow and rain and gray here, so I totally get reaching for the bright colors! What a juxtaposition from nuclear physics to your adorable sunshine girl! Love the bits like the fabric and sewing! Very cool!!
