  • A Rhinestone Basic Jewel dots the center of the lightbulb for a touch of bling.

  • Cool thing.  Stampin’ Up! Envelope Liners Framelits Dies come in three sizes which coordinate beautifully with Stampin’ Up! envelopes.  I used the middle size to line my note card envelope.

  • I stamped the lightbulb on Daffodil Delight card stock and used my Paper Snips to crop and layer it (with Stampin’ Dimensionals) over the same lightbulb stamped on Whisper White.
  • Hover and Pin it! Here’s a photo showing key products for today’s card that you can save or pin to Pinterest. See ALL my product photos in one spot on my How to Make Simple Cards board on Pinterest.

  1. This card brings back memories. I always told my students about “light bulb” moments, that instant when they understood a concept that had been giving them trouble. We even hung big card stock light bulbs from the ceiling as they understood a concept. Those light bulbs brightened my day and this card made me remember that. Thank you Mary

  2. Another classic Mary Fish design! You are my design idol, Mary. Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us.

    And, this cute card also caught my eye because of the black and yellow color scheme. We Hawkeye fans appreciate that!

  3. It was easy to snip the lightbulb and pop it up, Kadie. Thanks. An alternative to stamping the lightbulb in black on Daffodil Delight card stock would be to use the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers (Whisper White card stock) and give it a watercolor look!

    Hugs, M

  4. Hi Leslie: You Brighten My Day stamp set is exclusively available as a FREE Sale-A-Bration gift (a free gift for every $50 you spend). You can see a close up of all the images in the supplies list at the end of the post (before comments). M

  5. Thanks for the reminder about using the black and white sides of the Stacked with Love paper for everyday cards. I tend to put “seasonal” product away and forget about it. Charming card, too!

  6. Mary, love the background for this sweet little light bulb, it really shines bright against the awesome Chevron DSP. The coordinating seem binding bow just finishes this layout so beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. Mary . . . this card is very cute. I can’t wait to make one and . . . you know what? YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY.

  8. Where do I find you brighten my day stamp Set? I can’t find it in cattie.
    Cute, bright, sheer fun card!
