sweet and cool summery card

There's a cool, summery stamp set from Concord and 9th that finally came to live at my house and wouldn't you know it, this inspiration photo shows up in my feed.


Know which stamp set I'm talking about? The one everyone has had for a year already ...



That popsicle image gets me every time. And there are some super sweet (and fabulously font-y) sentiments too. I had a play at coloring the solid image stamp with markers, my kids' old sets, spritzing with water and stamping. Multiple times to get some depth.


Didn't use three elements from the inspiration so I'm not in the running to win, but I'm hooking up at Daring Cardmakers anyway. That inspiration is so light and lovely, don't you agree? And I'm joining the lovely ladies at CAS Watercolor and Happy Little Stampers CAS this month too.

Fresh and pretty, a lovely CAS design! I guess we can forgive you ducking the three elements requirement ;) Thanks for joining us at Daring Cardmakers this week!

Yay! Sometimes you wait for good things to come along. Love the colours and I'm always impressed you use stuff that has been hanging around for a while to - reminds me of what we still have despite all the new releases. And your kids markers worked out really well - why do I spend so much on Copics? 😂 Xx
