Sunny Smiles ~ Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

Today is the first Saturday of the month so that means it is time for the monthly Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop! All of the designers have created projects using products found at Shop Pumpkin Spice.

If you have arrived here from Carissa's blog: Happily Ever Papercrafter then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning then head on over the Heather's Blog: Houses Built of Cards.

This week's Pumpkin Spice Challenge is "Sunshine."  Using that theme I created a shaped card for you today.

For my card, I used a paper-piecing file from Treasure Box Designs called Tiny Treasures (Sun). I opened the file in my Silhouette Designer's Edition software and grouped the images together, welded them, and created a shadow to create the base of my card. Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut the base of my card out of Bazzill Kraft cardstock.

Here you see the card from the side.

For the sun I used patterned paper from Carta Bella Traditions 6x6 paper pad. I inked the edges of the sun with Ranger Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade. I popped the top part of the sun on one thickness of foam tape and the nose is popped on one thickness of foam tape. I added Glossy Accents to the eyes and sunglasses. The smile is hand drawn and I chalked the cheeks.

My clouds were cut from My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side Two 6x6 paper pad. I inked the edges with baby blue pigment ink and ran them through the Cuttlebug with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.

I stamped a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Beach Bums" set.

I finished the card off with some faux stitching and it was complete!

You can find many great products from the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store and from the Pumpkin Spice Ebay Store. Check them out!

I hope you will join us in the challenge this week! You can find all the details on the Pumpkin Spice Blog!

Now it's time to head on over to Court's blog: Court's Crafts. She has something fabulous for you to see!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
