It doesn't seem possible that it is July already. Summer is flying by. I did a little stamping last night and here are the fruits of my labor.
This first card is a shadow box card. These are a lot of fun and not hard to make. You can let your imagination run wild with this. I used the Weathered background stamp in Always Artichoke ink on Always Artichoke cardstock. I cut the circle out with my Coluzzle circle cutter.
The images inside the shadow box are from the Happy Camper stamp set. I think the idea for the bear roasting the hotdog on a stick came from my downline Kelly. If I remember correctly she did a convention swap with this idea last year. Click here for a tutorial on shadow box cards.
The second card is using the Baroque motifs stamp set and the Brocade background paper. Both are in the new catalogue. I used the new River Rock ink as the swirl background on the main image. Then I stamped the flower in Chocolate chip. The smaller flower is stamped in Old olive with a little flower stamped in chocolate chip in the middle of the flower. I then put an brad from the Vintage brads and gave it some dimension with a Stampin' dimensional. The color scheme came from the background papers.
