Summer Note Cards

With summer being around the corner in Australia (well, we don’t really have winter where I am), I thought I would share with you a small sneak peek at one of the cute sets from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalogue.  It is one of my favourite perks about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, being able to see and order new product before it’s released!  AND believe me, the new Holiday Catalogue will not disappoint.

The little Cards are about 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ in size.  Enough to write a small note to accompany the new Catalogues.

I sponged Crumb Cake onto a piece of Whisper White Card for the sand & then Soft Sky for the Sky.  I wanted the sponging to be very light so that I could still write on the card.

For all my little cards, I stamped the Umbrella from the “Day by the Beach” Stamp Set directly onto the card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped it again onto scrap Whisper White Card before colouring  with my Blender Pen, Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight & Marina Mist Inks.  The top of the umbrella was fussy cut prior to layering onto the Sponged Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the Starfish, Bucket & Spade, Thongs (love that we now have a pair of thongs in our collection) & Hat Images onto scrap Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & coloured with Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight & Watermelon Wonder Inks along with my Blender Pen.

The images were fussy cut & adhered to the Card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cards were then layered onto a piece of Soft Sky Card.

I think they represent our Australian summer to a “T”, but would love to hear what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

  1. Vicky, I absolutely love these. They are so very “Aussie”. I might have to case these for one of my classes. Thanks for sharing.
