June Stamp of the Month: I Heart Summer


Is it wrong of me that I DON'T (Heart) Summer??? I'm a fall girl. Give me cool days, chilly nights, and colored leaves any day! But I do have some lovely summer traditions and memories - as well as a best friend who LOVES summer - so this adorable stamp set went in my cart as soon as possible. Besides, I can see myself using these images for so much more than just summer. Travel. Coffee. Sailing. Reading...just to name a few.

For this card, I stamped the border images then cut them out individually to create a shaker card.

I did glue down the beach ball and basket so they were always in place but left everything else to shake. It's a fun way to dress up your shaker cards so they aren't always just glitter, sequins, or beads. I decided that I will most often use the sentiments individually, so I cut them apart with my Microtip Scissors. I can put them back together again if I want, which is the beauty of clear stamps. I could even rearrange the order or mix and match. So many possibilities.

Until next time,
