Dreams of summer for TGIFc#050

Hi, Stampers!

As I have been tidying up my garden, I have been dreaming about Summer.  I especially was thinking about the flowers that will grow soon (hopefully). Then I remembered the Summer Silhouette stamp set sitting on my shelf looking lonely.  This one's been around awhile, but I just love it. I dusted it off and used for the TGIFc Challenge.  Here's my finished card:



Here's the Challenge Bibi Cameron made that inspired my card:

All those strips at the bottoms had me scratching my head.  Instead of finding papers or ribbons for them, I decided to ink strips instead.  I used Lost Lagoon, Pool Party and Soft Sky for my strips.  I repeated the Pool Party along with Sahara Sand when I stamped the flowers.  For embellishments, I used some White Metallic Tape I had leftover from Sale-A-Bration and some Pool Party ribbon.  The sentiment is from February's Paper Pumpkin. I embossed it in white.  Everything is on a Pool Party Cardstock base.  This card didn't come together easily, but I think it was worth the struggle.


If you have this set, dig it out and show me what you come up with!

Happy stamping!
Robin

  2. Thank you so much! I masked the strips every 3/4 inches with a 1/4 inch of white in between. It took me a couple of tries.
