Summer Says

I'm excited to announce that I've been asked to be a Guest Designer at My Pink Stamper. I used the set "Sweetest Cupcakes". We had to make something summer themed.

It was a little bit of a challenge with cupcake themed stamps, but I remembered the picture I took of the kids last year. They had been swimming and stopped for a watermelon break. I thought the picture and a few of the stamps captured summer fairly well.


I used Mister Huey's color mists for the stamping on the white paper. I just spray them on my craft mat, tap the stamps in the different colors and stamp away. I like this technique, the colors are always mixed up and the look is soft, not quite as crisp as a regular ink pad.

The font is cut using Cherry Limeade. Once again, I used my Gypsy to get the perfect length. I didn't want the title to be longer than the picture. Instead of changing the height of the cut, I changed the length.

I just love Robyn's stamps. She has so many cute sayings and they're all so perfect to use with your Cricut cuts or just on their own. You can get them here...click here.

Of course, we're doing a Blog Hop, too. I am giving away this:



All you have to do is leave me a comment. I'll choose a random winner in about a week. Make sure I have a way to contact you. If you're not already a follower of my blog, please sign up to be one! You don't have to be a follower to be eligible to win but I'd love it if you did. :)

Afterwards, please visit Maria at her blog for more surprises. Make sure you go back to Robyn's site to make sure you get all the links to all the participants in the hop. Here they are as well:


Thanks so much for visiting and for your comments.
