You’re going to love this creative way to use the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! This stamp set is so versatile and here I used it to make a gorgeous sunny card, perfect for anyone you need to send a card to!

Creative Way to Use the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! in Daffodil Yellow

Don’t laugh but I designed this entire card around the sentiment! It’s part of the Sunny Sentiments Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! and I just love how this sentiment-only stamp set is for card making. It includes greetings for birthday, friendship, sympathy, thank you, get well soon, and thinking of you cards.

For this card, I wanted to use the “sunny thoughts” sentiment but I didn’t have a “sun” image so I decided to make my own! I pulled out the fun Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set and got to work creating a sun – it was soooo easy! (This could also be a Sunflower depending on your perspective – and that would work too!)

I really do love the mutlitalented Watercolor Shapes stamp set – you can see other ways I’ve used this stamp set here.
