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?

For today’s card I used my favorite new stamp set, Summer Fun, along with a timeless favorite, Vintage Postcards.

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

    When I was young, I wanted summer to last forever. Now I am glad for the cooler weather of autumn. These cards capture the nostalgic feel of endless summer!
