Summery cards!

I was looking through my 12 x 12 paper stash and came across some really lovely ones...

Remembering the wiper cards of last month, I thought I would do some more.

(I wrote a tutorial for Pretty Paper Studios, Dubai, on how to do them, here)

My first paper was an Amy Tangerine design from American Crafts - just lovely!

I also had a FREE beach-babe Digi from Scrapper's delights for a 'Summer Fun' Challenge.

Add a die-cut palm tree (living in Abu Dhabi, many of my cards have palm trees and/or camels on them)
and a gem on the sandal and there we are...a seaside scene...

Here is the card as it comes out of the envelope...

When it is pulled open the tag inside pops up and says 'Fun in the Sun".
I stamped a few shells on the side to add a little extra interest.

I am also submitting this to the  Scrapper's Delight Challenge

My second card uses this lovely paper...

I also have a Kris B image to colour and am going to enter this in 

Here the pop-up says 'Have a bloomiful day!'

Finally I am going back to my Indigo Blu 'Poppy Meadow' stamps -
 I think they are my favourite stamp set at the moment.
 If you have been following my blog you might remember my 'red' set
 (using Jenni Bowlin cough syrup to stamp)

   I am now on to my 'orange set' using Hero Hues Shadow Ink 'Soft Canteloupe' to stamp with.

This is the card I made this morning...just lots of matting with papers out of my scrap folders...

I am submitting this to the Indigo Blu Challenge #5 Summer Time

It is based on this sketch from Sketch'n'Scrap.

I am also submitting this card to Sketch'n'scrap card sketch #4 challenge 

I hope you like my cards!

Happy Crafting!
