Welcome to the Summer Sunshine collection release blog hop and giveaway. I am super excited to be sharing five projects with you! Before we start, lets take care of a little housekeeping, You should have arrived here from Bridget Casey
, if not you can go back to the start of the hop by visiting the Altenew Blog
To put the card together I added a torn piece of black card for the leaves to sit on and then stamped a sentiment in black ink at the top of the card.
My next card was really fun to make. I used the Mosaic Diamonds Stamp Set
to create a background panel. I then used all of the sentiments from the Monstera and Quotes Stamp Set
to stamp over the top. This creates a really fun effect. i torn the right hand edge and matted it onto a black card base.
I added a white heat embossed sentiment on the black edge and then place a floral sprig from the Tropical Jungle Stamp Set
which I colored with my artist markers and die cut using the coordinating Die set
My next two cards feature the Mod Fruit Bowl Stamp Set
and Mod Fruit Bowl Die Set
. For this card I stamped and die cut some melons and melon wedges, I placed them in a pattern across the middle of a panel, I though it would be fun to nestle the sentiment among the melons.
I added a black mat below the decorated panel. I then added some Brushed Grid Wide Washi
to an A2 note card before adding the other layers.
I am so happy with my lemons on this card. I used the Mod Fruit Bowl Stamp Set
and Mod Fruit Bowl Die Set
. I added Fresh Lemon ink to the lemon stamp and stamped it once, while still in place on my Misti door I used a finger dauber to add some Honey Drizzle ink to the outer edges, the finger dauber allow you to diffuse the ink so that you achieve a soft blend. I used the same technique for the leaves, this time using Bamboo and Parrot ink.
I created a background using the Areca Palm 3D Embossing Folder
, I embossed some 110lb white card, added some Bamboo ink to my glass cutting mat and sprtized it water. I then swipped the embossed card through it, this gives a really fun effect. I added a white heat embossed sentiment on to a black die cut, which I cut using the Nesting Slim Labels
