Cool Blues - Stampin' Up! Good Feelings

   Sometimes little dies in a set can get overlooked as far as being a focal point on a card.  I decided to use the cute little sunglasses from the Sale-a-Bration reward die set, Hippo Dies and use it as the main image on a card.

  The current layout at Freshly Made Sketches was just right for this purpose because it has a smaller rectangle that can be used to highlight a smaller image.

  I chose a blue based color palette to show off my cool shades.  The base is Starry Sky and is stamped with 'hooray' from the Good Feelings set also in Starry Sky ink.

  Next I added a wide band of 2022-2024 In Color DSP in Tahitian tide.  The sentiment from Sweet Songbird is stamped in Starry Sky and cut apart.  I popped the words up on narrow strips of dimensionals.

  The sunglasses were die cut in the various colors and Basic Black for the lenses then adhered to a Basic White Stitched Rectangle which has a Coastal Cabana rectangle behind it.  Each of the lenses are colored with clear Wink of Stella for a subtle sparkle.

  A few adhesive backed sequins (found in the July-Dec. mini catalog pg. 19) are added to embellish.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
