Summer Greetings

Hi Friends! Today I have a card to share with you that I created with the new Summer Wreath Stamp Set and Dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I love the PPP Wreath Collection and the summer theme is a fun addition to the collection. 


I started by stamping the wreath in black ink and coloring the images with Copic Markers. I die cut the wreath with the Coordinating Summer Wreath Die. 


The stamp set includes additional images besides the wreath. I chose some of the images to stamp, color, and die cut to add to my card. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in the middle of the wreath and added the sunglasses below the sentiment. In the left corner I added the sun. 


I added additional images at the bottom of the card, attaching some of the images with foam tape to add dimension. 



To create the card front I cut a piece of white cardstock and blended Speckled Egg Distress Ink on the white background. Next I cut the wave with the new Stitched Waves Die Set. I cut the wave from white cardstock and blended Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I splattered a little bit of white paint on the wave. Next I cut a strip of Kraft cardstock and tore the edges to add to the look of sand. I blended Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink on the edges. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to create some summer projects.

Plus, we have an exciting product to make glitter application even easier… it’s called Glitter Grab and it’s a paste designed to apply through a stencil, sprinkle glitter over the top, and the grab keeps it in place!

How cute are these glittered sunglasses! I die cut the sun glasses from Sugar Cube Cardstock, covered each die cut with TE Glitter Grab, and sprinkles on Peapod, Cookie Monster, and Oreo Glitter. Then I stamped the lens for the sunglasses with the new Shades of Summer Stamp Set, each one in the different pattern. 


The background is stenciled with the Here Comes the Sun Stencil in Potato Chip and Pineapple Ink.I the framed the the card with the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1. The sentiment is from the Shades of Summer Stamp Set. 


There are new ice cream cones and popsicle themed products for summer. Here is a look at the new Sweet Scoops Stencil and Clear Stamp Combo and the Sweet Scoop Dies. I went with a Mini Slim size card and die cut the card front with the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets from Mint Julep Cardstock and then stenciled the front panel with Cookie Monster Ink and the On the Dot Mini Slim Stencil. 



I used the fourth stencil in the Sweet Scoops Stencil and Clear Stamp Combo with the TE Glitter Grab and then sparkled the new Pearl Ink. I add the cherries on top by coloring a few Bits & Pieces - Iridescent Rhinestones with a Copic Marker. The sentiments are from the new Mini Strips - Hello Summer and die cut with the Mini Strips Die.

First up is a look at the new Better at the Beach Stamp Set and Dies. Personally the beach definitely feeds my soul and the sentiments in the stamp set are perfect! First I cut a piece of Stamper's Select White Cardstock to fit the card front. I stamped the water in Blueberry and Enchanted Evening Ins and the sun. To create the the evening sunset I masked off the sun and blended Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Blueberry, and Enchanted Evening Inks.

I splattered the sand with a brown water color paint. This card is framed with thee Border Bling: Skinny Stitched Frame Die.


My next card features the Feather Friends 12 Dies and the Border Bling: Flower Frame Dies. I die cut the flamingo from white Cardstock and blended Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet Inks. Behind the flamingo I stenciled a sun and stamp the water from the Better at the Beach Stamp Set. 


I die cut the  Border Bling: Flower Frame Dies from Stamper's Select White Cardstock and then  added Sweet Blush Cardstock behind the frame. I used the frame die again to cut the the leaves from Simple Chartreuse Cardstock, inlaying the leaves back into the frame. . The sentiment if from the Just Sentiments: Summer Mini Stamp Set
