It always feels hard for me to say goodbye to summer.
So here I share another summery card I made a while ago.
For this card I used my Cricut machine, Life is a beach cartridge and watercolor paper to cut. All shades are colored with Distress Inks. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp. And it is heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
Recently I made a card using the Garden Silhouette Stampset by Altenew. Love the delicate style of these flowers. They do think of the flowers I see along the dike while going with my bike for a bike ride. Made it a panel with a die and adhered it on a soft blue plaid patern paper. The sentiment goes so well with the feel of the card.
Cactusses are a bit prickly mostly. Thats why a chose this image with this sentiment wich says "Sterkte", wich is something like "stay strong", in english. I really Love tags on cards. Big ones, and small ones. I cut them with my Cricut in every size I like.
The name of the paper I used is "Florals&Basics" by Craft Sensations.
Summer is half way. Summer vacation started two weeks ago for me. More time for crafting I thought. But we got some very hot days last week. Much too warm to do anything. This week is cooler, so finally got some cards finished. And this is one of them. The flower is made with a die-set by Altenew "Fantasy Floral Die". Two layers are colored with Distress Inks. And one layer is cut from glitter paper.
The background is a Hero Arts stamp "Old Letter", wich is stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Wet Cement, a favorite color of me. Added a gold strip for some extra interest.
Here is a card I made with the Beautiful stampset by Hero Arts: " Beautiful Day Agapanthus". I really Love this stampset. I think because I love these flowers. Colored the stamped image with Copic Color Markers.
