It’s a fun day here on our blog! Lisa and myself are featuring the Summer Fun stamp set! Let’s begin with the fabulous Lisa!
Hi, Lisa here with a bright, fun, and nostalgic Summer card. Remember the days when we sent Post Cards during vacation?
My card is a standard 4¼ x 5½, and the ‘post card’ is 3 x 4. I started by stamping the post card image in black, then inked up the palm tree image in green, used a damp Q-tip to remove the ink from the stems, then colored the stems with a brown marker, and lastly I put both the Summer and Vacation sentiments on my block together and stamped them in yellow. The bright umbrella looks cute ‘shading’ the post card.
I can’t get enough of the adorable flip flops! Of course the ‘girlie’ pair needed bling!
I added the palm tree image to the inside as well.
That’s all for me today. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and are inspired to make a ‘post card’ card! How about making one to send during vacation?!?!?
Wasn’t that just a fabulous card by Lisa!?! Next up, is myself. It has been a great few days getting crafty! And today I grabbed the Summer Fun set also. Here’s my card.
This card was so much fun to create today. It is so bright and cheery and I hope that it will brighten the special someone’s birthday.
I started out creating three strips of cardstock and then stitching each row. I then cut out all my pieces using the Cameo from our Summer Fun Cut Files. I also cut out the umbrella using the pattern paper too.
Next was the fun part of putting it all together. I used two shades of blue for my waves. I then lightly watercolored the background in blue and sand color. Next, I pieced together all my little pieces onto my stitched frame.
Finally, I stamped “Birthday Wishes” from our Celebrating 2 years stamp set and cut it out using our Fancy Labels 3 Die.
We hope you enjoyed today’s summer cards! We will be back tomorrow with Nicole! She has a brand new video for us! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Big Hugs, Joanna & Lisa
