Sunny Smiles

I used the adorable new Simon Says Stamp Under the Weather stamp/die set from their newest release, Sunny Days Ahead, to make a couple cards with "sunny smiles"...
 The first one, simply done, stamped, die cut, colored(the rainbow and sun), and layered.  I stamped the raindrops with versamark and sentiment with black ink, both clear embossed,  from the same set, on a light gray piece of cardstock.  I die cut the gray with one of the Simon A7 Thin Frame dies.  I adhered all the pieces to the gray, and popped up over a yellow piece of cardstock(that wonderfully went with the yellow of the sun!).  The card is 4x6.  I just had to have some space for the layout of the elements that I chose, so a bit longer card was key!  Here's a close up...
 Then, there's my second card with a very simple outside and a simple little surprise on the inside when opened.  Here's the video first...
I got the idea for this card from a card I had purchased a dozen years ago, but never sent.  It got stuck in the drawer I had it in, so I saw it again, the first time in MANY years, when I pulled it out from where it was stuck.  THAT card had a simple tiny heart cut out on the front of the card that showed yellow from underneath the cover.   When opened, the inside had a cute little sun(which is why the heart was yellow).  I STILL thought it was so cute, even after all these many years, so I had the idea to make something like that with this card...
I used the same sentiment, and a smaller A7 frame die, the same rainbow/sky image for the inside, along with another of the sentiments from the set.  Here's a close up of the inside...
I hope these made you smile a little today...here's to bright sunny days ahead!  Stay safe!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
