Sunny Splash & Simply Fabulous

I'm always happy to welcome you to another Monday Montage Blog Hop.  I recently held a stamp class where we created cards with a trio of fantastic products.  I combined the Sunny Splash and Simply Fabulous Stamp Sets with the Butterfly Kisses DSP.  Together these three products offer an array of cheerful summery images to make great cards.

This Starry Sky and Crushed Curry colored "let's celebrate" card includes a bit of stamp kissin'.  I inked up the swimsuits and stamped off on scratch paper.  Then I inked up the background image from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and kissed it with the swimsuit stamp.  Last, I gave the swimsuit stamp a huff and then stamped it.  I love the way it looks wet.

For the swimsuits in this card I used a Stamparatus to create shading.  I partially inked up one side and stamped it over and over again to build up a bit more color.  

The Fresh Freesia flower on the right was also kissed.  This time I used one of the swimsuits to make the stripes on the flower.

I used Soft Pastels on this card to add touches of deeper color and texture.  I lightly scribbled on each flower with a pastel and then gently painted them with a Water Painter to blend the color.  The finished look is soft and chalky.

  1. What a great paper selection to use with this stamp set! I love all the layers and the kissing technique with the stripes on the flower. Perfect. These are such great cards and you may have enabled me to order this stamp set, never really saw possibilities for use beyond the norm, until I saw this post! Thanks so much!
