Stamp With Us on a Sunday!

I missed doing the Stamp with Us Challenge last week – did you? I really enjoyed this weeks challenge – I think the colour challenges are probably my favourites. In fact I enjoyed this one so much I have made several cards using this colour combination – but more of that tomorrow!
Here is the picture we were given for inspiration – a much needed reminder that it is in fact summer – we have had lots of rain here this week so I for one needed reminding. I do love the seaside and this picture puts a big smile on my face! I love the soft sandy look of the picture too so decided to base my card on the Natural Ivory Card which has a lovely soft almost canvas like texture to it. Looking around my garden at the moment I have some lovely big daisy like flowers that also feel very summery so I decided to incorporate something like them into my design

Here is what I came up with
The stamp sets I have used are Live Your Dreams and the hostess set Happiness Always. The colours I have used are Real Red, Yo-Yo Yellow, Ballet Blue and Mellow Moss. The red butterfly was stamped onto Vellum card and attached with a glue dot.

I would love to see what the picture inspires you to create, so please do post a link over at Stamp With Us – don’t forget you have the chance to win a place on the summer on line courses if you enter!

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Crafting

What a lovely summery card Bekka, really captures the essence of the photo! Love the way you've stamped the flowers, and the butterfly is fab too! Hugs, Kate x
