Hello fellow crafters! Today I have a couple of summer cards that will be given to kids from their teacher. One goes to a boy and one to a girl. I pulled out my summer supplies and had lots of fun! Hope you have fun too by reading this post!

 

Card #1

For the first card I started by coloring the octopus image from the MFT Ocean Pals stamp set with my copics. I used YR07-YR04-Y17. I die cut the image with the matching die and started working on the background.

 

 

On a piece of white Neenah Solar White card stock I blended Broken China Distress Oxide with a blending brush. Then I placed the Simon Says Stamp Waves stencil over it and blended Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. Sprinkled some water and dubbed with a paper towel.

I continued by white heat embossing the big YAY from the MFT Yay for you stamp set and die cutting the Simon Says Stamp Painted Summer four times out of white card stock. All four pieces were glued together to create one dimensional word.

I foam mounted the octopus and adhered the summer die before adding some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets here and there. The whole panel was finaly adhered onto a standard A2 white card base.

 

 

Card #2

For the second card I colored the pretty mermaid from the Honey Bee Swimming By stamp set using again my copics (only this time didn’t write down the numbers). I die cut it with the matching die added lots of clear Wink of Stella shimmer and started working on the background.

 

 

Searching through my stash I found a patterned paper that looked like water. This particular paper is from the Sizzix Watercolors Paper Pad. I trimmed it to be the size of a standard card and stamped a few shadow fishes (I used the Hero Arts Puffer For You stamp set for that).

I also stamped the word happy before foam mounting the mermaid and adhering the word summer. A few Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins here and there and done!

 

 

So here they are side by side. I’d love to know which one you like best.

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration. Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you soon!
