Designer Clouds!

I am a sucker for just about anything that has a houndstooth pattern to it and so this cute set of stamps by My Stamp Box is right up my alley and I had to put it to use.

Kazan's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #57 was just the design idea that I needed. The cardstock for the card base is a newer Core Impressions piece from Core'dinations cardstock. It comes with that embossed design on it already, all it needed was a little bit of sanding. The patterned papers are by Little Yellow Bicycle.
Are these just the cutest little sun and clouds images you have ever seen? There are other designed clouds in the set too. I stamped the clouds with a Versafine black stamp pad and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. The sun is colored with Copic markers and the little bit of glitter that you see if Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip. I love this glitter because it is so easy to use, easy to find and it adds glitter and it still lets you see the color underneath. The white, embossed scallop is a sticker by Martha Stewart.
