Sunny Studio Stamps: YOU COLOR ME HAPPY

Hello there! Amy here showcasing the Color Me Happy Stamps and Sun Ray Dies. Hopefully you've seen how wonderful and versatile the sun ray dies are from the previous post; today I'm going to show you how I made my own stencils with them and used it on the cards.
For the first card, I trimmed acetate to 6X6 and used just the rays from the Sun Ray Dies. I ran it through the die cut machine many times in the shape of the sun's rays (see picture below).
Using the stencil I made, I colored in the open areas with rainbow colored Distress Inks using the finger dauber. 
I added the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad. Then, I stamped and colored the adorable chick and paint brush from the A Good Egg stamp set and colored it with copics. I added foam adhesive behind the images and adhered it to the front panel.


For the second card, I made a stencil again- this time using the circles in the Sun Ray Dies
I used the stencil to add rainbow colored Distress Inks ( adding more colors than my previous card) again using the finger daubers. 
Once I was done adding all the colors, I used the Color Word Die and ran the paper through the die cut machine.  I also die cut white card stock using the same die four more times to add dimension to the card. To achieve this, I adhered them together one on top of the other. Before gluing down the down the word "color," I stamped the rest of the sentiment with a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad. Lastly, I added glossy accents to the die cut word "color" and the small circles on the sides.  
Here are the two cards together:


I know that the stencils I made will come in handy for future cards and I can't wait to use them again. I hope your day is filled with colors. Thank you for stopping by!
