Happy Summer! Yes, it has officially begun. Yesterday in honor of the first day of summer Mother Nature gave us a picture perfect day to start off the season. Loved it! It was too nice to stay inside so i took some of my stamping supplies out to the porch and stamped alfresco. I grabbed the new My Friend stamp set, First Edition DSP some assorted accesories and headed for the porch. I had to go back in for a tall iced tea cause you know stamping can be thirsty work! Here is what I stamped.
This definitely was inpsired by being outside. I used some Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped around the edges of the card. The image still looked good side ways and upside down! Don't you love the sentiment. I think it is so simple and sophisticated.
Here's another one.
I inked the stamp in Very Vanila Craft ink and colored in the image using pastels. The pastels stick to the craft ink and give it a soft look. Just a few more sleeps till you can order the My Friend stamp set. Remember to check out the retiring accesories and retiring stamps list HERE. Today grab some stamps, ink, paper and stamp alfresco!
