Sunny Smiles

I found some bright yellow embossing powder and have been having a lot of fun with it. I am really hoping for yellow embossing powder from Stampin' Up! as it is much better, but until then I will use this :) I made three versions of this card which were inspired by Jessica Witty here.

This one uses Hello, Doily and is fine and delicate.
  • Stamps: Hello, Doily and Petite Pairs
  • Ink: Illuminate, Pool Party marker, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
  • Other: Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, non-SU yellow embossing powder, Pool Party embossing powder, 1¾" and 1" Circle punches, Signo white gel pen, dimensionals

I made the Medallion on first, then the doily one. They both look like sunshine, but the Medallion one is much more bold.
  • Stamps: Medallion, non-SU sentiment
  • Ink: Illuminate, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
  • Other: Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, non-SU yellow embossing powder, Pool Party embossing powder, 2½" and 1¾" Circle punches, Signo white gel pen, dimensionals
 As I was typing this post up, I was struck with the idea to make this card with this set too. Then I had to dig around for a sentiment to use that fit the scale of the other images and the feeling of the card. Can you guess which set the sentiment is from?
  • Stamps: Daydream Medallions, Best Dad Ever
  • Ink: Illuminate, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
  • Other: Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, non-SU yellow embossing powder, Pool Party embossing powder, Big Shot with Floral Frames framelits, Signo white gel pen, dimensional, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat
So, which one do you like best? I can't decide myself!

Great cards - they are so bright and sunny! I love the yellow with the Pool Party. It would be fabulous if Stampin' Up introduced some Daffodil Delight embossing powder.

The variations are really neat. Thanks for showing the different ideas. Very pretty.

I like them all. Maybe the last one the most, but it is only by a hair.
