You can choose the colors or anything that reminds you of summer! Last week here in Pennsylvania, it was almost 90 degrees, so it wasn’t hard to imagine summer at all…..yesterday when I did my card, it was decidedly chillier! But as I was clearing shelves of retired stamps to make way for new ones, I came across a cute retired set and it was perfect for my summer-time card! Isn’t that always the way when new things are on their way---you find old ones that are just as appealing! Do you remember Crab & Company? It was a great reminder of summers spent at the Delaware shore:
I watercolored my little images with some of the inspiration colors, added some glitter and punched them out in different sized squares, then mounted them on a piece of Comfort Cafe DP:
The smaller ones were popped up with dimensionals, too. It’s difficult to see in the photo, but the card base has been embossed with the Stripes embossing folder to replicate the beaded boards of the photo, but it’s not hard to see that cute little sandcastle punched border:
I can smell the salt air right now! I stamped a sentiment from Heard from the Heart and added a linen thread embellishment, and my card is done! I hope that you are inspired to create a summery project…how about a scrapbook page or a 3D item? It doesn’t have to be a card! Share it with us over at the Paper Players blog and check out what the other designers created as well! Thanks for visiting today!
And here’s a fun little photo, just to nail home the fact that my little angelic granddaughter loves to play in the water….no matter where it happens to be:
Yes, her hand is wet……very wet!!! Sometimes she is just too fast for grammy!
