Summer Mini - some great new stamps!

Good morning, everyone! :) How are y'all today?? If you're in Tennessee, PLEASE let me know you're OK! Allison, are you stuck on your mountain??

The new SUMMER MINI has gone live! As soon as I can get it, I'll put the link to it in the sidebar. :) But for now, you'll have to settle for this card I made, JUST for you!

(My camera is beginning to give out. It was our first professional-grade camera, and I love it because it's QUIET. )

Card stocks: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum (ALL going to be in the new IB&C, in the SUBTLES group!), Whisper White

Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, and Perfect Plum Stampin' Write markers

Stamp set: Watercolor Trio

Accessories: Big Shot (:D), SU! Backgrounds 1 plates, large oval punch, dimensionals, standard texturz silicone pad, standard texturz impressions pad

How to: Using assorted markers, color in stamp. (This is a clear-mount set - I sure do have fun using them! :D LOVE our blocks!) Breathe on stamp, to make sure ink is moist; stamp on Whisper White card stock.

(This piece is cut at 1-5/8"x31/2".)

Color word stamp with Perfect Plum Stampin' Write Marker; stamp on scrap Whisper White. Punch out with large oval punch.

Mount flower stamped image on Perfect Plum card stock (1-3/4"x3-5/8"), then onto Certainly Celery (1-7/8"x3-3/4").

Run Pretty in Pink card stock through Big Shot with Texturz plate. Adhere matted flower image to Pretty in Pink card stock; if interior stamping is to be done, do so. :D

Using two dimensionals, adhere oval punched saying to front of card.

Easy, and SO pretty! If you like this set, I'd order it and any colors that are retiring SOON, so you'll be sure to get everything you want~! :)

Have a WONDERFUL day! Be sure to STAMP something!

the card is gorgeous... this technique and heat embossing were my first exposure to rubber stamping over 20+ years ago, and I still love it!!

Only thing we got on my mountain was lots and lots of wind -- didn't even get many branches down because the past few weeks have been so windy that we don't have a lot left to come down! What matters is that nothing came down on our house, Chuck's truck or the railroad!!
