I recently took a look at the PaperPlay challenge blog after my fellow blogging friend, Heather Maria, became a design team member. I got the chance to make a card for this week's challenge... to make something that includes the sun. I had recently stepped a little outside my box and purchased the Hero Arts set: Kiss from the Sun. It is a really cute set and while a little outside my comfort zone, I'm glad that I got it! I actually made two cards with it. The card for the PaperPlay challenge (the 1st card) and a little extra (the 2nd card).
Both cards were also made using patterned papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop 8x8 pad. Love that paper! So cute and perfect for what I wanted to do. I kept things pretty simple for my first outing with this set. But did do some paper piecing. And I added a bit of eyelet lace to the dress of the second card. I love how it turned out! Now that I have gotten my "feet wet" with this set, I'm excited about all the possibilities the set holds!
Thanks for taking a peek!
