Summer Sweetness

Ahh, summer sweetness! We are so ready for summer here in Wisconsin!

These pages use the Boom-Di-Ada Creative Basics Collection Papers. Colors are Hollyhock, Buttercup, Colonial White, White Daisy, Black, Olive and Sweet Leaf.

There are also a lot of stamps here too. The watermelons are from the Summer Sweetness set. And some of the watermelons that are on the sides of the phrases are put up on foam tape for a litte extra dimension.

The two large S stamps are from the Boutique Alphabet set. The "of" stamp is from the Precious Alphabet. It was stamped in Black on Buttercup cardstock and cut into a 1" circle and put into a Metal Rimmed Tag. The rest of the letters spelling "Summer Sweetness" are from the Whimsey Caps set.

The Hollyhock Ric Rac is from our new Ric Rac Collection Designer Ribbon Rounds. Both of those two ribbons are held on with White Daisy Brads. And the buttons are actually two clear buttons with Hollyhock cardstock on the back of them. The cardstock is held in place with the Colonial White Waxy Flax that was tied between the button and cardstock.

Hey there Shanon,
I'm coming over for a peek from the boards at CTMH. Thanks so much for your comment on my cards. :) What a great little blog you have here. I LOVE your watermelon pages, so summery and fun. I'll be back often for little sneak peeks. :)

Cute - love those watermelon stamps! Thanks to this month's special, I can finally justify getting this stamp set - since I still have one of the retired watermelon stamps ;-)
