Summer Splash (Sneak Peak from Summer Mini)

Hi everyone,

Last week my gorgeous family and I went away to the beach for the week. Unfortunately it rained and rained and rained (Sod's Law!!!). Out of 7 days we managed to get 1 1/2 days that were nice. But hey you win some and you loose some don't you?

The card I am going to show you today is using the set Summer Splash which you will be able to purchase from tomorrow.

I have seen a few cards like this on Splitcoaststampers and thought I would try it myself. I stamped the image in Versamark and then used three of our new embossing powder colours to achieve the different colours on the surfboards. I just used my fingers to sprinkle the different colours over the Versamark and then heat set it using my heat tool. No mean feat if you know me. I am not a fan of getting my fingers dirty (I just about manage with ink and that is it!!!). The sentiment is from Sunny Fun.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Summer Splash, Sunny Fun
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Versamark
Other: Tempting Turquoise EP, Wild Wasabi EP, Melon Mambo EP, Heat Tool, 1/4" Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots EF, 1" Circle Punch, Dimensionals.

Tomorrow is the 1st December which means three things. 1 The Summer Mini goes live so stay tuned for more cool ideas from this mini catalogue. 2 The next monthly deals will be available so keep an eye out for those. As yet we don't know what they are but apparently there will be up to 50% off some items. 3 Tomorrow marks the start of my countdown to Christmas so I will have 25 days of Christmas cards, gift ideas to show you.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,
