We begin today with Mynn’s fabulous project! Can’t wait to share! Here she is…
Hi, all! I’m here today with a fun project using some wonderfully summery stamps from the Inspired By Stamping online store. I decided that the one thing that most summers have in common is VACATION! So, I decided to make decorate a notebook cover, but this notebook could also become a mini album very easily, as well! Come and take a peek…
The first step for me was to stamp the island image from the Tropical Paradise stamp set. I watercolored portions of the image. I also added some Wink of Stella to the water for added shine. I then added a sentiment from the Summer Fun stamp set and a few enamel dots for more color.
I then stamped the umbrella image from the Summer Fun stamp set onto some yellow polka dotted patterned paper and fussy cut it out. This step would be easier if you had the Summer Fun cut files. This was added to the panel with dimensional foam to add a bit of interest.
All that I had to do to finish this project was layer the panel onto the notebook! I added a mat of pink glitter paper for more shine and color. I think this turned out super fun! The pages of the notebook are a bright blue, perfect for adding notes as you are on vacay, or for adding some photos, either way! What do you think? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
THANK YOU so much for stopping by, friends! I hope you take some time to get crafty today, and that you grab these goodies from the Inspired By Stamping online store, too! Don’t forget to join our current challenge, too! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! 🙂
Next up we have Leah with a beautiful summer card! Here’s Leah!
Hi there! I am very happy that the weather is starting to turn warmer where I live. Our warm season isn’t very long so I take advantage of as much outside time as possible when it finally does come. Today I have a summery card to share with you using a fun summer set called Summer Fun.
I love the fun umbrella and flip flops in this set! After stamping, coloring and trimming them out I added the fun “hello summer” sentiment. My little wave border at the bottom is also from this set.
A few sequins bring some simmer that summertime heat can have. My circle panel is mounted on foam tape to give it some dimension. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
We will be back tomorrow with a great tutorial by Nicole! Can’t wait to see what she’s creating! Don’t forget to stop by our IBSIC challenge too. Have a lovely day. With paper hugs and love, Joanna xxx
