When you want to send sunshine to someone to brighten their day, Stampin’ Up! has perfect products for making that happen. The Rays of Light Stamp Set is a large background stamp that covers the entire card front. I used the “ink to stamp” technique to achieve the color you see.

Sending Sunshine


First, I placed Basic White Cardstock on my Stamparatus, held in place by a magnet. Second, the stamp is adhered to the lid of the Stamparatus, which I colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red and Mango Melody, around the center. Third, I lowered the lid to the white paper, inking and stamping several times. Fourth, I cleaned the stamp, and  added Daffodil Delight with the ink pad, and stamped again, all over. Fifth, I cut the stamped piece, 5 1/4″ X 4″.

After stamping, I taped Real Red Ribbon to the back, and glued my stamped piece to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


“Sunshine to brighten your day” is one of the sentiments in the Sending Smiles Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Sending Die. I placed the sentiment on Mini Dimensionals, and attached it on top of the ribbon.


“Sending” was created with two, Sending Dies. I used Real Red Cardstock for the word, and Basic White Cardstock for the bubble behind it. Using the bubble provided room for the word to be lifted on Dimensionals.

This card is taking me back to my childhood, when I painted yellow suns with red, smiling faces, and the color combo still makes me smile.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
