July pocket letter swap with red white and blue patriotic theme. I used the We R Memory Keepers paper line and accessories titled Red White and Blue. My favorite is the red white and blue M&M’s I found for the middle square. HaHa.
These are a few of the extra packages of goodies I made for her also. They include ribbon, die cuts, treat bag kit, and some star stick pins.
The first card I made using this fun summer kit from Simon Says Stamp used the sun ray patterned paper from Echo Park that comes in the kit. I stamped three birds from the stamp set in the upper corner. I cut a Circle tag die from Avery Elle and stamped the summer hello sentiment also from the stamp set in versa mark ink and then added black embossing powder to the top and heated using my heat tool. I put some adhesive behind the stamped image and adhered it to my card. I then tied some natural twine into a bow and added it to the tag hole. I then embellished the card using some of the clear confetti that also comes in the kit. I adhered the card to the sunshine card stock from Simon Says Stamp that also comes in the kit. The card is a standard A2 size card. I think this simple card is just gorgeous.
My second card uses a stitched circle die cut from white card stock that I then stamped repeatedly with the wave stamp included in the kit with a rainbow of inks. I then used black ink to stamp the summer hello sentiment over the waves. I adhered that to a piece of patterned paper from the echo park pad included. I adhered that to a larger stitched rectangle cut from white card stock and then added that to a peach colored card base. I stamped the birds in the corner again and then cut my bikini using the die from the kit out of gold glitter paper. I adhered them using foam pieces from the kit. I then finished by adding some more of the clear confetti from the kit. The bikini die is so cute. This card is a A2 size.
For my last card I repeatedly die cut the bikini from a piece of white card stock included in the Simon Says Stamp card kit which I cut out using a stitched rectangle die from Avery Elle. I then used the die to cut a bunch of bikinis from the Echo Park patterned paper collection from the kit. I adhered all the bikinis back in to the die cut spaces. I stamped the sentiment , bikinis are like fries YOU CAN’T HAVE JUST ONE with versa mark ink onto a vellum sheet and then added pink embossing powder and heated. Then I trimmed the vellum down and stapled with a mini staple to the side of my card. I added more of the clear confetti to embellish my card. I still have lots of the confetti left too for other projects. I then used some of the foam tape to mount my whole white panel onto some of the Audrey blue card stock from the kit for my A2 card base.
This Summer Hello card kit from #Simon Says Stamp was so much fun to use. Can’t wait to make some more. it is going to be a great addition to my collection of stamps.
Decided to make a Horizontal Pocket letter for July swap with Marsha.
I used an older Echo Park paper collection that I love with all the bright sunny colors and
