Everything is Sweeter in Summer

Marc and I just got back from a long weekend trip in Kentucky with his motorcycle group, see the happy before photo. I can tell you that the amount of heat and rain has made our garden grow like crazy while we were gone! Of course after the mountain of laundry (it is a DIRTY world out there) we harvested nearly a dozen large cucumbers and half a collander of french green beans. Which made me think about the subject of today’s post. So here it is, a garden fresh bundle that is a summer staple of sweetness, is everyone ready for some strawberry short cake?

Check out the recipes below to see what was used to make each of these samples.

Elegantly Said and Evening Evergreen IN Color Anniversay Card

Another card that is going out almost as soon as it is made are my anniversary ones. I really like the Simply Elegant Suite, especially the paper, but when it is paired with Evening Evergreen… WOW! This combination is really eye catching in person.

This card is more complex then normal simply because of the need to line up the stamp so that it fits neatly on the Basic White cardstock. There used to be a tool by Stampin’ Up! called a Stamp-a-ma-jig (if i remember correctly) that was a positioning tool, an absolute must if you are a wooden block puriest. That would have worked well for this situation. As it was this card was eye-balled next time my stamp-a-ratus will definately come out to make a mass stamping.

Simple stamping is the name of the game on this card but if you look closely there is a hand cut decorative edge that allows a peak of IN Color designer series paper. It may be hard to see but there is serious bling here on each of the main swirls.

Fine Art Floral IN Color Birthday Card

Sorry I haven’t posted cards in a while! It seems that they are going in the mail as fast as I make them and that is a good thing. The next few posts all feature IN colors.

This one is a snap and could be made in multiple different colors (like one in each IN color) as a gift set or to just have on hand. Birthdays are always right around the corner.

Start with the card base of Polished Pink, cut at the 4 1/2 inch mark of the short side of the cardstock. Dry emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. Sponge with Polish Pink. The flower is made is Polished Pink the lighter is stamped off **TECHNIQUE ALERT** then full strength for the accent. Then add a bit of Wink of Stella on the darkest portions. Use full strength Garden green for the leaves. Adhere the flower to the base with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere with Stampin’ Seal.
