Summer hugs from afar

Hi folks,

Back today to share another summer card for one of my nieces.




When The Greeting Farm announced the pre-order for the little Bean characters in rubber, I didn't waste any time placing my order. The stamps arrived a while back and I have already managed to ink this one up. I'm notorious for taking a very long time to getting around to using some of my stamps. But I thought this one was perfect for a card to celebrate summer for my niece.


card details:
  • finished size: 5x5 inches, white card stock base
  • patterned papers: Echo Park "Splash"
  • stamped image: The Greeting Farm "Magical" Bean Kit, coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E11, E01, E00, R21, E30, E37, E39, E47, E33, Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, YR23, YR21, BG45)
  • sentiment: Verve "Borderline" stamped in CTMH Crystal Blue
  • ribbon and adhesive sparkly stars from my stash
  • Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle dies

You're a star

Hi folks

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my nephew. I usually make him either an end of school year, summer or beginning of school year card. This year....well, it's kind of a combo end of school/summer card.




As usual, he had a fantastic report card and, even though he isn't really into summer sports (he's more a computer geek like me), I thought this would be a fun image to use so I could use this sentiment. He really is a star in my books!

I've actually had Baseball Oliver (Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps very own boy of summer) for ages but it's my first time using it. I actually had to put it on EZ-mount because I hadn't done that yet. Yay for using a stamp that hasn't been used yet!


card details:

  • finished size: 5x5 inches, white card stock base
  • patterned papers: Echo Park "A Boy's Life"
  • stamped image: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps "Baseball Oliver", coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E11, E01, E02, E00, R21, E13, E15, E17, E53, E55, E57, E59, T0, T1, T2, T3, T5, T4, BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02)
  • sentiment: PaperworksCo Zach & Zoe Sports Series 1
  • Spellbinders Petite Ovals, Verve Ribbon Banner Die
  • layout: one of my own!
