Bright & Cheerful Summer Vibes Cards!
Today we'll look at a few of the fun cards I created using the delightful Summer Vibes Papers, Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts. This stamp set is also available on its own, without the Thin Cuts, if you prefer.
These are always beautifully designed and a great bang for your buck! An awesome way to celebrate YOUR relationships and memories!

Let's Create Sweet Hummingbird Cards!
to my delight, they are regular visitors! So, when I saw this Sweet Hummingbird stamp set, I purchased it right away!
This set's images and sentiments can be used for so many occasions! Not only are the images beautifully drawn, the sentiments are awesome! Just think -- birthdays, encouragement, anniversaries, get well, graduations, just because, etc.! Love this versatility!
Versa Mat over, and use the foam side as a cushion for your stamping. Also, our clear, multiple sized Acrylix Blocks are so easy to hold and maneuver, they make stamping a breeze!
Watercolor Pencils, I will use the Archival Black Ink. Along with it being a solvent based, acid-free permanent ink, it is waterproof, light-fast, fade-proof, archival, and nice, deep black ink. Truly a favorite! This way, if I decide to use either a Water or Shimmer Brush, with my pencils, the stamped image will not run. I often use my Clear Shimmer Brush for blending instead of a Water Brush. This creates just a little bit of sparkle!
I love that this Sweet Hummingbird set comes with two birds and multiple flowers. This makes it fun to create a variety of projects!
Shammy or the Spritz Cleaner and Scrubber. Easy peasy!
Why not create a handcrafted card and send to someone today? What joy you will bring to another!
Also, be sure to print your photos! These are YOUR memories! If YOU do not tell YOUR story, who will? These will surely be a treasure! Have you jotted down your thoughts and/or taken pics of this most unusual 2020?

Let's Make a Lady Bug Shaker Card!
Using my well loved (and over used) Sizzix Big Kick, the dies provide super clean cuts to the Candy Apple and Black Cardstock papers. Most die cutting machines will work. FYI -Close to My Heart now offers a wonderful Die Cutting & Embossing Machine!
Tip - the quick swipe across the card surface with the Anti Static Bag will help keep fly-away Embossing Powders from sticking to an area where they are not needed. 💖 I used this same process to stamp the sentiment, Ladybug kisses and birthday wishes, on my 3 inch round White Cardstock piece, as well as our little ladybug's spots.
