August Blog Hop

Country INKers Blog Button Resized (1)

Yes, it’s that time of the month again! This month’s theme is summer time! I know everyone has their own idea of what summer entails, but to me it means bright colors, butterflies, flowers, and a lot of sunshine! It also means being able to spend a lot of time outside enjoying these things! In order to put these ideas into a card, I used a couple bright colors, some flowers, and a couple of butterflies! Here’s my finished card:

August blog hop card

Using the new Stamparatus positioning tool, I created the flower and butterfly wreath using the stamps from the Serene Garden Photopolymer Stamp set. (Lovely tutorial for making wreaths using the Stamparatus by Dawn Olchefske, by the way!) I used So Saffron and Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White card stock. I mounted the wreath on Garden Impressions DSP, and then again on Whisper White card stock. The leaves and 1-1/4 ” circle are punched from the new Call Me Clover 2018-2020 In Color collection, as well as some vellum paper. That big bow on the front of the card is the Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon. I used Dimensionals to pop the wreath piece up off the base card, which is also made of Whisper White card stock and Garden Impressions DSP, then decorated with a couple Basic Pearls. Nice summer-y colors with a little bit of glitz, ready to send off for a summer birthday or maybe even as a thank you card!

By now I hope you are beginning to settle in to all the new products in the 2018 catalog, and finding some new favorites! August will be the second month of my Christmas Card Classes by Mail, and those of you who did last month’s class now have 10 cards ready to go! I will be posting the next class’s stamp set by week’s end, so get ready for another round of 10 cards to be headed your way with another cute stamp set!

Paper Pumpkin will be on sale for 50% off the first month (new subscribers only) if you subscribe by August 10th. I LOVE these kits! You get everything you need in one little box to create a different project every month, right to your door!
