Share Sunshine Digital Download Quarantini style

As part of Stampin' Up!'s Making a Difference programme, they're offering a product giveback opportunity to support organisations that are helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to the pandemic.

The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both light-hearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing. 

You can use the download in your card making projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. 

The charities receiving the donations are The World Health Organisation's COVID-Solidarity Response Fund and United Way. They are the sole beneficiary of the $12US purchase price. Neither Stampin' Up! or any demonstrator receives a share.

I bought and downloaded the set a few nights ago and here are the results of my first play around with them. One card is for a beginner or casual stamper - or for someone, like me, who enjoys a clean and simple look. The second is more for the avid crafter as it requires more equipment - and patience - to make. 😀

I used the  'Quarantini' set of greetings. The one on the left is CAS and the other a bit more complex.

This card had a simple treatment. I fussy cut the martini glass and coloured the olives. I like the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the card front but if you don't have any, just cut a plain rectangle. I've added in a mat of silver glimmer paper, then popped up the sentiment on dimensionals. On the inside, I added in the sentiment about catching up once we're allowed to.

The martini glass brought to mind the recently retired Sip, Sip, Hooray. I stamped some glasses in Smoky Slate and Olives in .... Old Olive as a background. To make the central image and sentiment stand out more, I added in a layer of vellum and a frame cut using Stitched Rectangles. 

The tiny mat of Blushing Bride picks up the colour in the sentiment and in the centres of the coloured olives.

This is just a taste of what this digital stamp set has to offer. If you're interested in purchasing a set, you can do so by visiting here.

  1. Love this - these are fun images for our times for sure! Love the subtle silver border on the first card and the vellum layering and clever framing on the second one works really well.
