The card I have to share with you today is one that reminds me of an Irish Blessing.  This is the Covered In Sunshine stamp set.  There is a mix of retiring, carryover, and New products.

Stamp set

Yesterday we were in Scotland with the Thistle and today we have (maybe) an Irish Blessing.  I am ready to travel!!!  It seems I always fall for items as they are being retired!  This stamp set, the Covered In Sunshine, is retiring and I believe I have only used it one time.  After making this card, I can think of so many uses for it.

The sentiment is the star of the card.  It is actually written at a slant.  After reading the words, I knew I wanted the daisies from the Rain or Shine paper.  And that created my colors for the card.  I stamped the image using Parakeet Party Ink.  Then the sun using Crushed Curry.  The inside of the sun is colored using the new Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends.

Papers and Dies

To complete the Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper daisies, I added a fun polka dot piece of Parakeet Party.  This is from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper.  The card base of Crushed Curry was pulled from the daisies as well.

To cut the sentiment, I turned to a new Die Set.  It is the Countryside Corners Dies.  There are seven or eight of this shape in graduating sizes.  The one I used is the 4th largest.  And it fit perfectly with the angle of the writing.  The sun was cut using the Layering Circles Dies, it was one of the smallest.


To tie in the Parakeet Party color, I added a double ribbon and bow using the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine.  I love bakers twine because it is so very easy to work with.  Plus it does not add much thickness to the card.

As a finishing touch I  turned to 2021-2023 In Color Rounds.  The Pale Papaya ones were close enough for the daisies centers.  A few scattered around was just enough to say I have some bling!
