Little More Summer

Photo by Lindsey!

Hello and welcome to the July 12 Kits of Occasions!

 I am the host for the month of July. I wanted the kit to be 
 easy to create, with fresh bright colors and
 images of summer. 

Something about this fresh lemon and lime stamp that I just love!
I bought it with , Linda, Colleen and Darnell at Impress Cards and Crafts
Keeping this card simple , I added the new "Best Wishes " die from Poppy Stamps

 For the card above I used : Carta Bella : Summer Splash, along with Papertrey Ink 
Bitty Big and On the Wagon for the surfboard and palm trees. 
I added Glossy accents to the boat, pink bush, surfboard and palm tree.  

Card above I used Purple Onion Design Stacey Yacula  : 
Floral Wreath and Sleeping Mouse.

This card I colored in with Zig brush pens . Stamp used : 
Pretty Pink Posh Flourishing Fuchsias. It's layered on top
of the Poppystamps : Delicate Branch Collage

 This one was so fun! I used another scene form Carta Bella paper. 
The Bus is from Purple onion along with the snail . Palm
tree from Papertrey Ink : On the wagon. 

Thanks so much for the visit today. 
Don't forget to see the rest of the teams creations!

Turtle Awesome

Hi there! back from vacation! Hope you are all happy and well!
I ordered the non stand alone dies for the seaweed, so I had to compromise with out the stamps .

I have to admit this is so out of my comfort zone with all these layers but I went for it anyway.

Thanks for taking a look!

Enjoying the old pool today with this warm weather!
It was so hot a few weeks ago it burned all the new palm leaves, first time I remember that happening.

Shadow Backgrounds

Hi there!  Happy to play along with Papertrey Ink
 Make it Monday
  I made this card on Monday but just getting around to
posting it today.

This is my second attempt as the first one was stamped in a dark gray,
 I thought it was too dark and busy so I remade it with Soft Stone Ink.
After I saw I pressed down too hard when I stamped the sentiment 
I ran out of time to remake a third time, so don't see the thick "on"

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for stopping by today!
