Show Me the Sunshine

Hello and welcome. Here in Australia we are still waiting for relief from our sweltering hot Summer sun and the our cooler Autumn (Fall) weather to kick in. So I found the theme for Global Design Project #GDP135 'Show me the Sunshine' a bit amusing.

The suggestion of a sunny day to me conjures up visions of sitting on the beach in deck chairs soaking up the sun's warmth, so I have stamped out a row of deck chairs in our new 2018-2020 'In Colours'.

I thought the new 2018-2020 'In Colors' were so bright and vibrant they were well suited to a 'Show Me the Sunshine' theme. To get the chairs perfectly aligned I have used my fabulous Stamparatis. A new tool I was lucky enough to purchase when preorder was offered, but will be available to everybody in the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
The Stamparatus is a must have tool for serious stampers. You can not only position your stamps in the perfect position but you can reapply the ink over the top of the image without the image moving to achieve perfect ink coverage. The feature I love the most is the hinged plates, meaning you can unhinge the stamping plate and move it to the next hinge position and the next and the next to achieve perfectly spaced stamped images.

For my submission to the Global Design Project I left the deck chairs as stand alone on my card front omitting a sentiment. I thought a suitable sentiment could be added to the inside of the card for a Birthday, Retirement or even cheery message to brighten someone's day.

For the above card I did add a Birthday greeting.

Then added a set of individual gift cards in each new 'In Color' to bundle together to give as a gift.

Thank you for visiting me today.
