PP544 Signs of Summer

Hi stampers!  It's Sunday and time for a new Paper Players challenge!  Ann is our hostess and here's her theme for us this week:


I was enamored by that cute little watermelon up in the corner, and the In Colors of Positively Pink and Just Jade seemed to fit perfectly!  So here we go with my CAS creation:

I simply cut the "watermelon" slice with dies from the Layering Circles dies, and stamped the "seeds" with the ice cream drip stamp from Sweet Ice Cream!  I layered it on a Basic White panel that I embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy dies.  I added a sentiment from Welcoming Window, then punched out the corners with the Detailed Trio punch and mounted it on a 4 1/4" square card base of Positively Pink:

I used the sketch from Fab Friday as my layout:
There are so many possibilities with Ann's challenge....summer will soon be upon us in the US and I am sure you can find some inspiration for your stamping!  Be sure to check the Paper Players blog to see what the DT created, and share yours with us as well!  Thanks for popping in today! 

Just two dogs checkin' out the neighborhood!

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

SO cute - all that's missing is the little guy that nibbled your sweet melon - I see the trail he's left!

Ann Schach said...

Absolutely adorable, and so clever, LeAnne! Polished Pink and Just Jade are the perfect watermelon colors. I love the whimsical stitching, too. A wonderful card for celebrating my Signs of Summer challenge! Have an awesome week!

Heather said...

Yum! Love it, Leanne! Watermelon is the perfect sign of summer, especially one as cute as this one, lol. What a great use for the Whimsy die, too! Brilliant! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

This is such a simple idea yet so perfectly executed LeAnne - and what a genius idea to use the DSP for your watermelon, the addition of the pattern really makes for an eye-catching slice! Watermelon is the perfect summer thirst-quencher, for sure - yummy!

I just cut up a big watermelon this morning! I ended up with a puddle of juice on the counter it was so ripe! Yours is definitely less messy and way cuter! I love the DSP and the use of the ice cream drip...both absolutely perfect! Have a great rest of the week!

Jaydee said...

LeAnne, such a sweet card. I love all that white space - it really allows that fabulous watermelon to shine. I also love the die you used... the dashes remind me of ants working their way to the watermelon! :-) I still remember participating in a game of baseball on a hot summer's afternoon and having cold watermelon at the end of it! Thank you for the memory!

Nothing shouts summer like a piece of watermelon! I love the patterned paper you used to create this juicy treat. Your little white panel is just perfect to showcase the summer treat! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, My Friend!
