Paper Smooches August 2015 Guest Designer

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

 
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!

  13. Congrats on your GD spot, thats fantastic!! I can tell you had fun with the new release goodies, the cards are gorgeous. Love the design of the first card with the way you doubled up on the shell and crab etc, very effective. And those jandals (thats what we call flip-flops in New Zealand) are so colourful and pop even more with the uncoloured stamp area. Looking forward to next Wednesday now!
