You're Dandy Day Three!

Thank you all for your sweet comments. I'm so glad you like what you've seen so far! I've got two more cards for you today! So let's get started...

When I use this set I just can't help but to think fun, bright and SPRING. I'm so ready for it!

Now my grass is black, but it would certainly look great green, and if you click on the image above, you'll see some sweet little white clouds floating up there! And of course there are those rays again.
I did want to show you that you can use this set for other things than bright cards, so I went the total opposite direction.

This time I used this little star as an accent, well actually that's a little tool I created to help you line up the rays! More on that tomorrow. And notice how the rays are embossed. I just love that look.

So fun! Again check back tomorrow for a video on how these rays work!

------
Don't forget I'll be giving away a stamp set to one commenter from all comments between yesterday and February 5th at 10 pm eastern. You're Dandy will be available on the 6th!

Courtney,
I love the bright spring card! It makes me think of warmer days! *sigh* I woke up this morning to it snowing and although pretty, it is wicked cold! How is TN? Cold? My family lives in Arkansas and they are having just as tough of time with the cold. Hope all is well and thanks for sharing!

Ok, so this set looks amazing! I'm so inspired that you are able to take your designs and apply them to something maybe not so traditional. I'm really loving the stamping on patterned paper with a color! Oh how cool. Love the little row of grass too, that doesn't have to look like a little row of grass.
