Happy Summer Stampers!!!
I really love summer, however, I don't do heat very well. It's the humidity her in PA that bothers me most. But, that's why they invented Air Conditioning and swimming pools.
So, here is my 1st day of summer card using the newly released Digi Stamp called Birds and Roses for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Isn't this juts the prettiest image. The image was colored in with Copic Markers.
For this card, I was inspired by the sketch at Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Blog and by a cup cake. See link below
I also had this great find at Michael's last week. I only went in for some embroidery floss that I was out of to do my hand stitching and I some paper pads from K and Company called out to me. I bought three 12 x 12 pads for only $7.00 each. I love the papers from that company.
The paper flowers and leaves were made using punches. And again this week, I'm finally using my stash of buttons that I've neglected and have been hoarding for years.
The Hand stitching was done using matching embroidery floss.
