Two cards this month have a summer theme (which would have went nicely with my outside idea). This one I cased from here. I changed it just a bit but the minute I saw it I loved it -- watermelon is one of my summertime favorites! The seeds were hand drawn and then we put Crystal Effects on them.
Stamps: Tiny Talk
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Green Galore & Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Basic Black marker, Scallop Circle punch & Crystal Effects
For the second card I used the "Life's a Breeze" stamp set which is retiring. I bought it over a year ago and I never used it. I figured why not use it quick before it's gone! I cased this card directly from Splitcoaststampers. I loved it so much that I made it exactly like the original.
Stamp Set: Life's a Breeze
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Yo Yo Yello, Real Red & Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Yo Yo Yello, Real Red & Whisper White
Accessories: Square punches, Real Red Striped Ribbon
My last card was made with a stamp set one of my customers wanted me to use "Bird on a Branch." I admit at first it was not a stamp I liked but after making the card and seeing what other demonstrators made with that set I think I have to buy it myself. I found my inspiration here but decided to treat them to the new In Colors and the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. I think it turned out really nice.
Stamp Set: Bird on a Branch
Paper: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White & Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Old Olive
Accessories: Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals, paper piercing tools
