More Summer Challenge Cards...



This past weekend, The Stamp Shack hosted various creative challenges for summer themed cards and these are a few of my creations.

1. Mai Tai anyone? : )I couldn't resist Cindi's Summer Drink Challenge! How FUN! I just happened to have the perfect background paper ("Hit the Beach Collection" ~Flair Designs) The drink stamp is from M's $1 bin.

2. Thank you to 'LoobyLou' at The Stamp Shack for this terrific summer background she created to share with all of us! I downsized it and printed it off on some patterned paper from the "Hit the Beach Collection". (Flair Designs Inc.) I added the black dots using the PaperTray Faux Ribbon set. "Happy Day" is a bargain stamp from Joanne's. Cardstock is Stampin' Up! summer sun and the image is layered with the giga square scalloped punch. (Used 1-1/2 to create the rectangle.)

3. This card was created for Cindi's Summer Sketch Challenge. Joanne (tojoco) sent me this super cute hula girl image (Great Impressions) last week and I was anxious to color her and create a card! The background paper is by Cloud 9 Design and the name of it is "Leaf Your Troubles Behind". Isn't that funny?

May your day be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks and sand between your toes!

You met the challenges so beautifully, Pam. I adore that you printed the words on patterned paper. I never would have thought of that! Great tip.
