Hello Summer!

June 11, 2023 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Sunday!

 Sharing a fresh summer card today featuring the Slice of Summer Stamps. Summer is my favorite season and I just love making tropical cards!

This is an A2 size card and I’ve combined some beautiful tropical products on this one. I started by die-cutting a piece of white cardstock using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die and inked it with Kitsch Flamingo Distress ink. I then embossed it using the Moroccan Circles Embossing Folder. I matted it on black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using the largest Fancy Frames Oval Die. For the ocean background on this piece, I placed a post-it note across the oval 1 1/2″ from the bottom and inked the bottom of the oval with Antique Linen Distress ink. I left the post-it note in place and die-cut a piece of eclipse masking tape using the sand portion of the Tropical Trees Backdrop Die. I placed this across the very bottom of the oval and inked the ocean with Peacock Feathers Distress ink. I inked lighter in some areas to allow a little of the Antique Linen ink to show through as a reflection of the sky on the water. I removed the masks and placed the post-it note over the ocean/sand. I then inked the sky with Kitsch Flamingo, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. I heat embossed the HELLO sentiment from the Radiant Plumeria Stamps with black embossing powder 2” from the top of the oval and 1” from the left edge.

I die-cut the largest Fancy Frames Oval Die from black cardstock and adhered the frame to the ocean background on the card front. I die-cut the Tropical Trees Backdrop Die from black cardstock and adhered the largest palm tree and a seagull.

To finish, I stamped the limes from the Slice of Summer Stamps using Simon Says Stamp Celery, Limelicious and Pearfection inks and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I stamped the plumeria from the Radiant Plumeria Stamps using various pink and yellow inks from my stash and die-cut it using the coordinating dies. Finally, I heat embossed the “Summer” sentiment from the Radiant Plumeria Stamps on black cardstock with white embossing powder and fussy cut around the sentiment.


I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
