You Are My Sunshine ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays cards are some of the samples I will be showing you next week on Create and Craft.

It is one of the new die from the Simply Said Collection from Spellbinders.

There are several in the collection that all say different things and  this one is You Are My Sunshine 

These dies are designed to create a full card front for you in one easy pass.

I have chosen to do mine in black card and add it to a Brusho Background for a dramatic look.
The pink one is with Centura pearl card and I have inked through the die before removing the card

Very plain very simple ... no flowers no ribbons and no pearls on either of these

I hope you will join me for the 4 Day Deal  next week from the 19 th October on Create and Craft

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Good Morning Christina :) When the page first loaded and I saw the black card before I even read anything, I thought... Ohhhh she's made a Halloween card today. I always enjoy seeing what you will do with a new die. Thank you so much for sharing. Enjoy a lovely day. Big Hugs.

  9. Hi Christina...I LOVE this! What a brilliant way to make a quick card and it looks great using one of your Brusho backgrounds :). I think I'm going to have to save up for this collection as they are going to be so useful :)

  10. Good morning Christina, looking forward to these new dies. I'll have them all taped. I have to say though I prefer cards when once cut you finish your cards with, pearls, ribbon, flowers ect X Ros

  11. Lovely ideas Christina, will you let us know days and times of shows please....luv Ursula xx

  12. At first when I look at this card far away it looked like a scary face with 2 eyes a nose and a big mouth. Taking a closer look its such a beautiful card very simple and yet attractive. Thanks christina


  13. Great looking cards, they turned out really nice...
    There is a song of You are my Sunshine...it was my Dad's favorite song and he sang it all the time....now my grand-daughter and I sing it too and we gave a plague to each other with the saying "You are my Sunshine"...this had a special meaning to me.
    well done Christina

  14. Hi Christina
    Loving the Brusho background, but , my honest opinion is i am not too struck on the Die ,
    Take Care

  15. Love the look of the Brusho background in the black one but I love the look of the pink one best. I love more colour in my cards. It would also depend who is receiving the card which colours I would use. Hope to catch you on Create and Craft. Dianne Crowe

  16. Hi Christina. These are lovely and oh so different.
    Looking forward to your shows next week.

    Love Val in Spain x

  17. Hi Christina another two beautiful cards, as Terrie said those words have a lot of meaning You Are My Sunshine was my husbands dads song and he always sang it to our children when he had them on his knee, brings back lovely memories.
    Kind regards
    Anne Owens

  18. Hi Christina, my preference is the pink card but not sure about the die, look forward to seeing you next week.
    Regards Liz.

  19. Great cards. Will watch next week.

  20. Hi Christina, looks so different when you change it to a lighter colour I think I would pick the black is it was a choice but they are both lovely. Take Care Melody xXx

  21. Hi Christina
    Love the cards, they are both beautiful, one looks like it is flying in the sunset or sunrise and the other a daytime trip, love them.

  22. It's amazing that the same die can have two different looks with the change of cardstock color. Both cards are so pretty and I really like the ease in creating a card.
