Welcome everyone to my blog and the final stop of the Simon Says Stamp "Among the Stars" blog hop! i've been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a fun and exciting release for Summer.
I've made a few cards to give you some inspiration from our release; starting off with "Stan in his swim trunks. Stan is a favorite of mine... so I couldn't resist to dress him up for warm weather in the Summertime Animals stamp set. I placed him over an arrangement of die cut Basic Banners that I've inked using a blending tool and Duckling, Apricot, Green Apple and Scuba inks from Simon Says Stamp. Yeah... he's cute and he knows it!
Next up is a mini card that I created using elements to go with the greeting. I've used Duckling, Apricot, and Scuba inks with the Sun from the Summertime Animals, Moon and Stars from the Shine On stamp set. I also used the Basic Rectangle dies to cut my panels and white embossed my greeting on a strip of Slate cardstock.
Ahhh yes... flowers! These Hydrangea Petals dies are really versatile. I've created mine by die cutting watercolor cardstock then painting them with Abandoned Coral distress ink. I've die cut the leaves by using the same flowers dies from pattern paper and cut them up as needed to place behind the flowers. I also added stamens from my stash to the center of each blossom.
Are you into the felting craze? This delicious Ice Cream cone die is a fun one for summer. I've used felts that represent Mint and Chocolate ice cream... and of course red for the cherry on top!
