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.
