Crafting wise, I was a bit stumped on Summer fun at first. So I decided to keep it simple with a few cards. Then I thought of the bike rides we would be doing next week, and I was like, "we have a stamp for that!" This stamp is in a really cool hostess set called Life's Adventure, that you can purchase for $10 with a $150 purchase. I love all the stamps in the set, so you'll probably be seeing more from it in the future.
This card features some summery colors, Costal Cabana and Crushed Curry, and the bike is colored in with one of SU's new Blendabilities pens in Pumpkin Pie. I made a mask with two sizes of punches for the big dots, the zig zag comes from the Work of Art stamp set and it's all topped off with a bit of Washi Tape!
Card number two features the cute little sea birds from the Wetlands stamp set. Nothing says "beach" quite like those little guys!
This card started with the birds and was inspired by two new rolls of ribbon that were sitting on my craft table. The seam binding ribbon is so versatile. Night of Navy and Calypso Coral are the colors. I wanted to fill things up a bit, so I experimented with the new Polymer stamp set called Dotty Angles. It is pretty nice, yes? I stamped the color off once to lighten it a bit. I sewed the ribbons across the sponge daubered (that might be a word!) doily and added bits of ribbons and strips of sequins to the back of the greeting (see the dots there too?) Our new fast fuse adhesive made that all possible! Sahara Sand is the stamping base card stock. I think this is a bit more vintage for me, it's nice to change up your style every once and a while.
Let me know what you like and if I inspired you. For further inspiration keep clicking!
