Sweet Summer Days

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to the summer.  Even though I am not a big fan of the heat, I love spending the evenings outside, walking on the boardwalk, the outside entertainment, the musis…ahhh…and we can’t forget the BBQ’s!

I decided to get the summer theme going and created 2 cards using Impression Obsession stamps.


Now doesn’t this watermelon drink look delicious?  Yummm!  I used Copic Markers to colour the image, cut out a couple of the hearts, and popped them up on glue dots.  I used the Spica glitter pen on the umbrella, and added Basic Grey rhinestones for the little berries.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.


One of my favorite summer fruits is Strawberries.  I used a bigger stamp and cut out 3 strawberries.  Coloured them with Copic markers and then put Glossy Accents on them to make them look more real.  When that was dry I put more Glossy Accents on the bottoms of the strawberries and dipped them in glitter, trying to achieve the look of sugar, it looks better in person! lol  I can’t take any credit for the card though, as I saw it on Penny’s blog and pretty much cased it, of course with a few little changes.  Thank you for the inspiration Penny.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!
