Hope everyone is having a great week. I’ve been a bit delayed because I’m settling on my first condo soon and I’m beginning to pack things up. I’m really excited not to be a renter anymore, but I don’t know how I’ve accumulated so much stuff over the last 6 years! The paper (and just-craft-things-in-general) addiction is real my friends.
Well, yesterday I finally sat down to edit the film using the SSS July Card Kit and have part 1 to share with you today. As I mentioned in the video I struggled a bit with this kit. It was filled with lots of goodies but I didn’t feel like everything went together (and if you’ve been watching me for even a small amount of time – you know how I love when things match!) So this will be part 1 of 3 because what I ended up doing was creating 5 cards with the stamps, 5 with the papers, and 5 with the stickers and I mixed things together a bit where possible.
Without further ado:
Here are your close-ups:
This is the card that started all the stripes (well for this round – I did a card like this with the last kit too.) I’m just obsessed with the look of them.
For the inside, I added that leftover strip and stamped the watermelon in black to echo the black from the sentiment on the front.
Prismacolors: 929, 922, 1030, 989, 912
I thought this stamp set was so much fun, I just loved all the images and the punny sentiments. I did a lot of paper piecing with the images and thought it gave a nice crisp look to match with stripes.
I used my Cricut to write out the inside sentiment – the font style is called Rumors. If you don’t have a Cricut, Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABCs stamp set is really similar.
I love using those mini wobblers – they are such fun cards to open and don’t get me started on those sunglasses. So cute! I paper pieced the pineapple again and added that lighter green popped up and slightly askew to give some added dimension.
I still kept the inside really simple and just stamped that pineapple across the bottom.
I wanted to try something different with the stripes on this one and went diagonally. I like how it created the space for the sentiment.
I finished off the inside with another fish and a few bubbles.
The flamingo is my favorite of this set. I love that die cut! I paper pieced it together like the cactus and pineapple. My flamingo colors might not be quite accurate but I thought that orange and pink were summery and go together so well.
Again I finished off the inside by stamping and added a leftover yellow stripe with some thin washi over top.
As always, thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards! xoxo, Sarah
