Best Summer Ever

photo by Lindsey

Hello ! I hope you all had a wonderful July!
I am the host for the month of July and chose this Echo Park Paper 
called : Best Summer Ever. 

 The card above was very simple to make , the sentiment is from Concord & 9th

I love this striped paper and thought it was a pretty backdrop for this Concord  & 9th  Florals Stamp set.

I used the TE ink blending brushes and some oxide inks to change the color of this popsicle then used a shimmer pen to try and make it look cold.

This one above is probably my favorite and more my style. I fussy cut the Altenew : Golden Garden stamp set, watercolored it with Zig pens. The jar is from the Greetery. Love that three step jar.

 Please stop by the 12 Kits of Occasions blog HERE to see the rest of the designers and the list of supplies in the upper tab.
I hope you have a wonderful August...fall is around the corner !!!!(kinda)

  9. I had a wonderful time working with your kit and just finally found the time to share what I made. Thank you so much for all the happiness you included! I love how you fancied up the popsicle and I was blown a way with how you watercolored the flowers for the jar. I would have never thought to do that. Brilliant, my friend!

  10. Marybeth, thank you so much for the pretty summer kit! I loved all of the elements and the papers were so much fun.
