Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop!!
I'm sure you've enjoyed seeing Debra's Soft and pretty designs with the On the Grow Set on her blog, Heartfelt Inkspiration. When you've seen the hop (or if you need to reorient yourself), continue on over to the Stampin' Addicts website...We're having a Stamp Jam this weekend with some fun challenges and chat, and of course you're welcome to join us for the fun.
I'm showing off the Sunny Fun set! I love this set's variety!
I used the flip flop stamps for a Lilly Pulitzer inspired card in pinks and greens....I would use this to invite friends for an evening of grilling out, or possibly even for a girls day out.
I have a confession....I cut the floral flip flops off the rest of the stamp. I imagine using them more by themselves than with the entire stamp, and I can still use it by placing it back in its spot on the clear block and fitting the cut edges back together.
The riotous color of the Beyond the Garden designer series paper has a tropical feel too I think. I love the littlest flip flops, stamped and punched with the one inch circle punch, layered onto the new 3 step doily punch! I now wish I'd used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the On Your Birthday set instead, but what's done is done.
There are so many great ideas (Scratch N Sniff, Dazzling Diamond Dust) to spice up the popsicle stamp in this set. I used the Orchid and Turquoise glitters from Stampin' Up! to give the snowcones an icey Blue Raspberry and Grape look. Dazzling Diamonds looks cute applied with the 2 way glue pen randomly on the true popsicles for frostiness. (I didn't put any on the fudge bar or chocolate coated ice cream bar.)
I'd used the swimming children stamp already (post below), so I didn't create another for the hop.
Lastly, nail polish makes a fun gift for a variety of ages, and this little box makes a sweet bit of packaging! I'll have a tutorial for you on Monday, but it is very easy. Sorry it is difficult to see the pearls and bling on the flip flops.
Now just click on to see Sara's blog....Lily's Inkpad and have fun seeing her fabulous fishy creations with Summer Splash!
