With the upcoming summer season, I foresee a lot of cotton candy being eaten. Fairs, amusement parks, the zoo….There’s something so iconic about the paper cone with swirled pink, blue or yellow cottony goodness piled on top. I was so excited to see that Avery Elle had a cute stamp set called Cotton Candy with lots of fun greetings—perfect for a summertime birthday!
Wedding season is just around the corner and having a stash of cards for the occasion can come in handy. For today’s project, I’m using a stamp set from Ranger called Letter It Wedding along with an embossing folder called Confetti Hearts to create an easy shaker greeting.
Stamping backgrounds can sometimes be difficult especially when trying to keep your images even and lined up straight. For today’s project, I got some help lining up a rainbow background using the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced Pattern Block.
Sometimes you just want to say “hi” and tell someone they make you happy. Today’s card is bright and cheerful with a hint of summer thrown in. All with the help of Fiskars’ Life is Sweet stamp set and some Summer Splash paper from Carta Bella.
Teeny miniature hanging plants. Is there anything better than that? This die from Sizzix called Hanging Planter is so cute, I couldn’t wait to turn it into a card.
I recently had a delicious frozen limeade. It was a beautiful green color and of course, it immediately inspired my color palette for today’s project.
One clean and simple card technique I really enjoy is the look of tone on tone white. When you have a die cut with some intricate designs, it looks very elegant with just a few small color additions.
