Smile...Summer is here!

Hello crafty friends, I hope the weather has been as good for you as it has been for us in the U.K.! I've had my windows wide open in my office as I was making my summer themed card, it helped to inspire me.

I started with white card for the background of this card which I stamped with various stamps from the Wall Art Stamp Set . I embossed them with Opaque Bright White powder and In The Pink glitter. I then used a stamp from the Hey Little Flower Stamp Set which I embossed with Bonding Powder then covered with Violet Fab Foil and ran through my laminator. I think spritzed the card with water and coloured with watered down pens, concentrating on the left hand side.

I stamped flowers on to white card and embossed with Heather and Misty Sky powders. I used an Embossing Pen in the centres to add a touch of In The Pink glitter. On the die-cut leaves I used the lettering from the Wall Art stamp with Oceanic powder. I covered white card with double-sided tape then sprinkled with Frosted Petals Sparkles and die-cut more leaves.

Finally I used In The Pink glitter across the centre of the card across the strips of double-sided tape then added a sentiment using a stamp from the Big Words Stamp Set and Violet Fab Foils.

I hope you like it and good luck with the challenge!

Want to have a go yourself, here's what she used to create this gorgeous summer inspired card.

Totally Tropical Tag

Hi everyone,

It's Fran with you today sharing my project for June's Summer challenge theme.

My texture rich tag is filled with bright tropical colours, summer flowers, WOW! goodies and a fabulously cute wooden flamingo

The base of the tag consists of layers of die cut shapes which I had accumulating in my craft storage.
I lightly brushed areas with a soft matte medium and sprinkled Emerald City embossing glitter to highlight.

I prepped the wooden flamingo by painting with acrylic, drying and then tapping the WOW clear ink pad over the surface. Next I pinched applied Sweet Cheeks, Yum Yum Yum Bubblegum and Fluro Magenta embossing powders which I then melted with a heat tool.

Inside the oval chipboard frame I used some Clarabelle Sparkles glitter which I adhered with glue applied into the centre recess with a paint brush. I used the same process on some of the flowers using Salsa embossing glitter, which adds a little texture to them along with definition. Very simple but it looks great just to add a little bling onto projects!

Stay creative!

Summer shaker card

Hello, dear friends!
I want to wish you a happy summer time! It is the time to relax and enjoy the sun, warm wind and long days. So my card for today is very clean and simple, light and fresh.
 I created the background, using texture paste with stencil. While the paste was wet, I sprinkled it with WS111 Cha Cha Cha and heat set.

 For the shaker element I used a printed out word summer, stamped word Happy from 
Just Saying (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set and added some background stamping with tiny circles from Hearts & Twine (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set. Then I filled the shaker with some acrylic drops, microbeads and my favourite Sparkles, of course! Here I used SPRK005 Santorini SPARKLES and SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES.

Also I splashed white paint to add more interest and life to the card.
I used the following Wow! products:

Hi WOW's fan. This is Laurence (laury55) today to share my project for this month's "Summer" challenge. Flowers are blooming in Summer and I included some in the background and heat embossed them with WOW White Embossing powder. I also wanted to try a technique that I hadn't tried before: I die cut the word "Summer" and added some WOW Misty sky powder on part of each letter as I wanted the watercolor background to show through. I replaced each letter in its original place. 


I hope you will be inspired and play along on our current challenge.
