Summer Scenes, Summer Treats or Summer Colors
Choose one theme or combine the themes as you wish! I can't wait to see your Summer creations!
If you are regular reader of my blog, then you will have seen this card I recently shared using the stamp set Summer by the Sea. As mentioned then, I made another card with the same stamp set and created another scene. This is a retired stamp set, but it's usually found on ebay.
I paired it again with the Hero Arts stamp sets Color Layering Waves and Color Layering Sea and Sky. Such great sets to create scenes with! Speaking of Hero Arts, did you see the Hero Arts - June My Monthy Hero kit that was just released on Monday? It's a fun Jungle themed set perfect for Summer themed cards! You can click the snippet below to see what the kit looks like.
I started by stamping the beautiful girl using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink on watercolor paper and colored her with Zig Clean Color markers. I stamped her again on a post it note, fussy cut to use as a mask. As on my previous card with these sets, I placed a strip of painters tape to mask off the sky portion, then inked the sea with Hero Arts Blue Water Reative ink from one of their previous Monthly Hero stamp kits. Waves were done with a stamp from the Color Layering Waves set usingthe same ink. Silhouette boat, clouds, birds and sentiment are both from the set Color Layering Sea and Sky and the sandy texure is an oldie from Stampin Up - Itty Bitty Backgrounds. Sky was inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. The clouds were stamped with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide and the birds were stamped with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide.
Zig Clean Color Markers // Pumice Stone Distress Oxide // Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide // Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink
Stampin Up Summer By the Sea // Stampin Up Itty Bitty Backgrounds (both retired - but most likely availabe on ebay or etsy)
Below is a picture of both card I made with these sets.
You can read more about the boy card here. I do love how these turned out and had soooo much fun creating them both!
