I was so excited to have been chosen as the August Paper Smooches guest designer. Every Wednesday, this month, I will be sharing projects with you using some of the August 2015 release products. I had so much fun working with the new stamps and dies. My projects today both use a new stamp set called,
I started this card by creating my background. I made a circle mask so that I could create sand and sky using some distress inks. using the I die cut the same hole in the card base and card front to create a window to the inside of the card. I stamped, colored, and cut out all of my scene elements from Summer Lovin' several times so that I could create layers of images from the outside in. Similar to this card!
Once all of the elements were in place, I stamped one of the great sentiments from this set and it was done! Here's a peek at the inside of the card.
My next card uses the same Summer Lovin' stamp set along with the new Flip Flop Dies.
I started by die cutting the flip flops from white and black cardstock. On the white flip flops, I stamped the hibiscus flowers and leaves. I colored them and the background of the sandals with Copic markers. I used the black die cuts for the straps as well as to create a shadow.
I stamped the hibiscus stamp on the card front and lined up the flip flops to match. I adhered them there, stamped another great sentiment from the Summer Lovin' set, and added the tiny heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you love these new products as much as I do. I'll see you next Wednesday with more from the PS August Release!
