Bobbi Lemanski provides us this cheerful, sunny card by water coloring the background in the window and adding the blue birdie from the Raccoon Rascals stamp set and a white window frame. She then stamps the small flower image from the Dainty Daisies stamp set repeatedly on the blue card stock. She adds a yellow flower box and hand draws a wood grain pattern. In that flower box, she adds beautifully shaded daises from the Dainty Daisies stamp and die set. A black gingham bow is the perfect finishing touch.
Ready for some autumn fun? Debbie Owens shows us that we are never too old to play in the leaves! She begins her card by creating a bark-like background using the Hardwood stencil. She then creates a cloudy background using the Clouds stencil and die cuts using the Frames & Flags die set. She adds the kitty hanging from the branch from the Newton Hangs Out stamp set adding foam tape to the kitty's bottom to make him look like he is swinging out to land on the pile of leaves from the Wagon of Wishes stamp set. She finds the perfect sentiment for her scene from Newton Unwinds stamp set.
Diane Morales combines stamps set to create this fabulous summer card. She creates an orange/yellow distressed background on which she stamps a sentiment from the Cat-itude stamp set. She tucks several palm fronds from the Toucan Party stamp and die set behind this panel. These fronds go perfectly with the surfboard her kitty is holding from the Newton's Perfect Wave and die set which Diane colors wonderfully!
Sue T. designs a tranquil ocean card that any friend would be thrilled to receive. Using the Frames & Flags scalloped edged die, she creates a frame from a blue polka dotted pattern paper. For her center panel, she uses the Sea Borders die set and the Sunscape stencil to create a peaceful place for the seagulls from the Gull Friends stamp and die set to hang out. Sue adds a speech bubble from the Speech Bubbles die set to capture the sentiment.
She customizes her background by repeatedly stamping & embossing lemon slices. For her center panel, she uses a white-dotted vellum piece with a white bottom on which she adds the sentiment. Her focal point is a lemon and lemon slice from the same Lemon Twist stamp set. With a twine bow as the final embellishment, Becky shows us the power of using just one stamp set!
