To Brighten Your Day


Going a little bright here today!

All of this was completed with the latest Simon Says Stamp kit.  The yellow for the light bulb was stamped in Momento Lux Dandelion and the the outline image stamped over it in black.  As far as lining up those boogers....NOPE, it ain't gonna happen with me!  LOL!  That's pretty well normal though.  I'm really thinking the solid image is larger than the outline one so that's what I'm going with!  I cut a piece of patterned paper that came in the kit, added the sentiment and heart, and then added a few enamel dots.  I covered the heart and light bulb with the Wink of Stella pen.  Fun and bright and maybe it'll even brighten someone's day!

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

I love, love this card Lynn! It is so bright and cheery, loving those fun stripes too. It certainly brightened my ugly dreary day. I wish I could sent the rain we are to get today, Saturday and Sunday to you. But I have no power-anywhere, lol, sorry. Hugs

This is sooo bright and happy, Lynn....the little light bulb is adorable and what a fun design with the striped paper and enamel dots....love it!!!!!

Love the paper on the diagonal. And personally, if something comes out perfectly, then I must have done something wrong. I think you're right about the lightbulb. It has a natural border along the outside of the line :-)

Love your bright, cheery colours!

I'm with Benzi's comment on lighting up the day. It's drizzly rain & gray around Upstate SC. I love your card. I have the same problem with these dies & stamps (even the clear ones!). Actually it looked really cute the way you did this, so until you 'said', I didn't even noticed the solid & outline didn't behave nicely. Love that eyepopping color. I've only used the white luxe (not happy with my results). I did get some more of the luxe colors, but not used as yet. Your bright stripes were perfect with the bright yellow bulb, and the tiny trims were great to draw the eye right on up from the stripes. Great card. TFS it today, and Happy wkend.

Lynn, this is a fun bright card. I have looked at these two stamping and the outline is smaller than the "light" so it's not you. Love that paper and your heart and dots. I wish this card could have brighten out day up here. It has not yet started to rain, but it is very dreary out here. Enjoy your weekend.

Tammy said...

Absolutely fantastic card Lynn. The diagonal stripped paper really sets off the fun image and sentiment

Shelly Schmidt said...

What a fun card Lynn- the image looks fine to me- but I know what you mean about centering! Hehehe If you did not mention it, I would never look at it and think it is off kilter at all.... Sweet Stamps just started carrying Wink of Stella- I have mine ordered- cannot wait to use it!

Rose said...

Maxine D said...

Wonderful card Lynn - and here was me thinking you have stamped the lines perfectly, and I read on to be disappointed as it's paper!!
Blessings

Your light bulb and sentiment are so cute and the DP, colors, and the dots and heart are wonderful with them.

Laura said...

I love how you did the light bulb even if you think it's crooked, Lynn. :-D Fantastic striped paper and having it on the diagonal is even better! I really like the enamel dots. Are those self stick or did you have to glue them on?

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

I love that light bulb. It is just ever so slightly whimsical. You add the little doo dads in all the right places! Wonderful creation, Lynn.

Kristie W. said...

How bright and fun! Before I read your card description, I was thinking the stripes were stamped. The paper really blends well with the white background.

Becky said...

What an wonderful CAS card.

Margaret said...

Vivienne Holden said...

Well Lynn, this card certainly brightened MY day! It's so fresh and fun. xx

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

Totally love! The splash of colour from the stripes is fab. What a great layout. I so love your layouts x

scrappymo! said...

Great card. The image is fab...yes, I also think the yellow is larger than the bulb...I think it is to mimic that look you get if you look up at a light bulb...the bulb gets sort of a halo around it!

Great CAS card. Love the stripey paper with this image.

Linda Simpson said...

This is gorgeous! I love the beautiful colours and the light bulb looks fabulous!

Cute image, and it brightened up my day too.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, my gosh, will this ever brighten someone's day, Lynn! It definitely brightened mine!! And I agree with you about the lightbulb image being bigger than the outline. Totally! But even this OCD person loves it that way! Sorry I've been a bad bloggie friend with my lack of visits. Hugs, Darnell

Marilyn said...

Wowee... another fabulous card!

Jessi Fogan said...

THis couldn;'t help but brighten someone's day, Lynn! I love that fun lightbulb, and the perfect scatter of dots/hearts/glittery bits :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Wow! This is a bright card. I love it! I recognized it as the latest Simon Says kit. I used to get them but stopped because I have so many that are barely touched lying around. I do miss them and enjoy seeing what others make with them. This definitely brightens my day!!!
