Sunshine and Stamp Ink Paper #50

Now more than ever I try so hard to make sure I am kind to everyone.  When I cross paths with someone I don’t know I always make sure to say hello and find something to compliment them on.  Whether it be their shoes, hair, blouse, shirt, even their smile.  I do this because the world is awful and one kind word will go a long way.  I’ve decided, I’m going to start handing out my cards to complete strangers.  Inside there will be a short note for them to pay it forward and give the card to someone who can use a smile.  What would you do if it was you I handed this card to?


When I give this card out, I’ll be sure to let you know about the whole experience.  I’m so excited to find someone too!  I’m not sure how I’m going to approach the person, I’m just gonna do it!

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The inspiration for my card game from this week’s SIP Card Challenge.


Maggie Made Tips:

  • Non-traditional Sun.  The challenge called for the sunset and my sun (burst is more like it) hasn’t set yet and that’s okay.  It’s all about what inspired me and the star-burst from Kinda Eclectic stamp set was the one for me.
  • Balance the Eye.  When I decide where and how to place an item on a card, whether it’s a stamped image or even an embellishment, I always try to eye-ball the card to see if it seems balanced.  I look at the card with one eye closed.  I’m not sure why I do that, but maybe it has something to do with my military training…LOL.  The eye-ball should have a focal point and to accomplish that goal I punched a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper with a 3/4″ Circle Punch.  Go on and close one eye and look at the card…doesn’t the gold glitter draw you in?
