Today I’m sharing a bunch of cards I made with the Share Sunshine PDF download. Last week, Sara Douglas, CEO of Stampin’ Up! hosted a Facebook Live session as part of SU’s Virtual Day of Service. All employees were given a kit and an instruction sheet to make cards to send to family, friends and those on the frontline in the pandemic. Demonstrators and customers were able to join Sara from her home as she and her family made their cards. The instruction sheet includes a template for cutting a piece of 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper and some suggested card layouts. You can use any DSP in your collection for this project. I chose to use two sheets from the Peaceful Poppies DSP, which will be retiring next week. I made ten cards that I will be sending out. They were quick and easy to put together and I had fun making them.
I printed out the pages I chose to use on Whisper White cardstock and in my printer settings I used one of the premium settings because the cardstock is heavier than a regular sheet of paper. All of the greetings on front and insides of the cards are cut from the PDF download using a variety of punches and dies. I also added some bakers twine and some of the Peaceful Poppies Elements. NO stamping is required!

The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both lighthearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing–including many ideas that came from demonstrators and customers! You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards! I hope you will consider supporting this great cause. For further information and to purchase the download, click here.
The PDF is 15 pages long and the first two pages provide a list of coordinating colors, stamp sets and dies or punches that you can use with the images. There are multiples of the images, some in black ink and some in a variety of colors – no stamping necessary!!
