Walking on Sunshine for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate Spring and Summer. With inspiration from Katrina & the Waves’ song “Walking on Sunshine,” we’ve created projects that share the joy and excitement that accompany warmer weather. We are excited to share our projects with you. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I couldn’t help but create a card with a sun and the word “sunshine” from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits!

For the sunshine, I cut a circle out of our Grid Paper using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits to create a mask. I used the negative of the circle I cut out to sponge Daffodil Delight onto the corner of the Whisper White layer using a sponge dauber.

I cut out the word “sunshine” from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits out of Multipurpose Adhesive-backed Basic Black, which basically turns your die-cut into a sticker! So easy to adhere to your project without the adhesive mess! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are a MUST HAVE!

The clouds come from the Up & Away Thinlits and I’ve popped them up on Dimensionals. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone that the clouds are hiding an oops! Remember – there are no mistakes in crafting, only opportunities for embellishment! LOL!

  1. I am going to case this happy card and send to my friend in Colorado. I miss her so much — she is sunshine. Will you share your facebook project on the blog? I don’t do any of the social media things but I love your projects. (There may even be some other old fogies who are like me)

  2. I LOVE the simplicity of your sweet card, Julie! You do clean and simple so well. <3 So glad you hopped with us today!
