National Stamping Month - Hello Life! Card (with Design Space File)

Hello life and hello inspiration! For each Hello Life stamp set available this month for National Stamping Month, I'll be showing off artwork to help get you inspired!

This week is all about the Hello Life - Cardmaking stamp set:

Inspiration: I'm showing off the new Nevermore collection colors this month, though I toned them down a little by replacing Sunset with Goldrush and Pear with Fern. I also used the "Hello Sunshine" sentiments as my starting point. I knew I wanted the card to be bright and to have a sun (I like literal. :)

Technique: I used the Artfully Sent cartridge for my card base and the handy dandy "Contour" function to get rid of everything except the sun. From there, I added as many stamped images as I could, and to make it pop, I threw in the sunglasses and film strip using black Paper Fundamentals. Why sunglasses and film strip? Because I thought they'd look good in black. :)
