You are the sunshine to light my day card made using the Artiste cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card for you that is made using the April Stamp of the Month. I wanted to show you guys one more time what this stamp set that coordinates with the Artiste cartridge can do. I do not think I have ever done a project with this color scheme. Orange is not usually one of my go to's but I really like it on this card.

Now if you want to get your paws on this stamp set you have just 4 days to get it. You can get it for $5 if you spend $50 or regular price is $17.95.  You can even get this stamp set for free, along with 3 other stamp sets of the month, if you sign up as a consultant this month. Email me if you have ANY questions.

I get a lot of emails on how to download my files. Here are 2 great videos that my bestie made. Check it out if you need a little assistance. Click here and here for the helpful videos!

I used Echo Park paper.
I cut out the sun rays, circle, and shape in the center using the Artiste cartridge. Then stamped onto the shapes using the stamp of the month.

The Artiste has sun rays and suns too?!! - oh boy, I so want that cartridge but can't afford it. I love rays and the oranges - I just bought the yellow pack of Spectrum Noirs for this reason. I must get round to using them :-)
