LNS Challenge #21 - Beautiful Summer

Well my long weekend is almost over and I am VERY sad :-( You would think I don't like my job when actually I love it I just like being at home better :-)


The Stampin' Up group that I am a part of called LateNightStampers (I told you about it in the previous post) offers a challenge each Monday, this week it was to make a Summer themed card. Here is my take on the challenge hope you enjoy. This card was a lot of work! All that cutting, I don't do that too much but I had this imagine in my mind and thought it would be worth the effort this time. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.



The card has several layers of dimension so I tried to give you a side shot of the project so you could see what I had done if you want to make this card yourself, the Butterfly's are stamped tone on tone with their orresponding color then stamped again on Whisper White in the same color ink, both are cut out and put together with a glue dot then popped up with a dimensional from the bottom. If you have any questions be sure to let me know. Here are the details:

  • Finished Card - 5-1/4 X 5-1/4
  • Stamp Set - Dreams du Jour (#111624 - $16.95)
  • Ink - Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Summer Sun Classic Ink Pads
  • Paper - Summer Sun Textured, Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Pink Flamingo DSP (#113976)
  • Accessories - Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Perfect Layer Tool


I appreciate very much you stopping by today on your Holiday! And as I sign off I want to Thank ALL the Military people and their families for the sacrifice you all make to keep us safe here at home with all the freedoms we enjoy each and everyday! You are ALL the BEST!

I love the layout of this card, the colors, and the butterflies. Okay, I love everything about this card. I hope your hand still works after all of the detail cutting, but it was well worth it! Thanks for sharing your incredible work.
