HSS Summer Fun Theme Challenge #76

Good Morning Stampers!! I love Summer- seriously, but I hate humidity and smoldering heat- confusing, huh?! Well let me explain… I love the things you think of when you think of summer, like swimming, beaches, and sun bathing!  If you know me well at all you know how I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sun.  but we are in a drought here in San Antonio and man would I give anything for a substantial amount of rain and a slight relief in this heat… I digress :) But today is ALL about Summer Fun over at Hand Stamped Sentiments-
This week I created a card that spotlights everything I love about summer.  The SUN, the SAND, the WATER, and the FUN that comes with it all! This has always been my favorite stamp set, although it is retired I miss it terribly- OH, SUN FUN how I miss thee!
I used some retired colors in this card as well- creamy caramel, ballet blue, whisper White, and more mustard.  I used these brads to create the center part of the flip flop, and NO I don’t call these thongs… we all know what those are- yes they have a strap that goes in between something but it ain’t your toes. 😉

I love to lift things up, I think it just adds such a cool effect on a card- so everything is raised up on this card for the most part. I made this card with these 2 pieces of card stock (ballet blue and more mustard) which come out and are blank at the bottom for a separate note.  This card would be a super cool invite to a beach party too!!  And yes, I threw the fishies in for good measure.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my project for this weeks challenge over at HSS– head on over to take a peek at the rest of the Design Teams creations.  Show us what inspires you about summer fun.  I have some new Convention updates too coming up later this week… man was that amazing and fun and I would love for you to join me there next year!  Wait till you see some of what we got to see and do- AMAZING!!!  Thanks for stopping by and until next time~ TTFN


  1. You know, Creamy Caramel never looked so good! Love this sunny card and all the great details you added! This is a set I will never part with because it is perfect for summer cards. Love it! :)

  2. I love that you only used two colors and the images are so cute. Great idea for how you used the brads on the flip flops. I can’t wait to talk to you about your convention experience.
