Hello stampers! I am just tickled with this month's new stamp releases! They are clever, sassy, and perfect for summer. Warning--once you start stamping umbrellas it's hard to stop!
The umbrella stamp from the Life's a Beach stamp set was just screaming to be stamped in red! I stamped the sentiment first and then stamped the umbrellas around the sentiment. The red, white, and blue color scheme makes for an extra festive summer card.
I couldn't resist the little owl in a bikini. I paper pieced the owl and adhered her over some cork sand. The beach balls cut out perfectly with a 3/4" circle punch. I used the clouds from the Sassy Chick stamp set to complete the scene.
I had fun with this card! The rocking chair from the You Rock mini stamp set looks just like grandma's favorite chair. I created a scene by choosing patterned paper that looks like bright, floral wall paper and adding a strip of white paper to act as a baseboard. I combined the you rock sentiment with grandma from A Mother's Love stamp set.
I stamped the chair on dark woodgrain paper, trimmed away the inside pieces with a craft knife, and then fussy cut the remainder of the chair. Trimming with a craft knife didn't take too long since most of the cuts were straight.
