Another summer card!

Today my card is inspired by my front porch chairs that I have. In the summer we sit out there and just relax! Can you see why I don't want winter to come! Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week, was to follow a sketch! So out came my Karen Lockhart stamps.... I coloured them with copics and then used my Colourless Blender to place the dots on the chair pad. The colourless blender pen takes away the colour leaving a lighter version! I just purchased some Stampin Up ribbon and paper, which I just love! Thank-you Tanya! I hope making this card makes the summer stay just a little bit longer!


  1. I love your card, and I love that your front porch inspired it. Down here it gets too hot to sit out in the summer, so it's soon going to be front-porch weather for us. Still, I do appreciate your wanting to hold onto every bit of summer. This year I find myself feeling the same way, and usually I can't wait for the colder weather. I'm quite content right now though. Your chair looks so cozy and inviting. BTW, if you are going to order ribbon and haven't yet, the gingham I used was actually the Hunter (or Forest?) Green. Glad you liked those.

  2. I love this!! Really, one of my favorites of yours lately. I just love the colors/papers and how relaxing it is..wonderful job!

  7. ooh love these colours and papers. The spots look great on the chair, I mustuse the wrong apper as whenever I try this method it doesn't work!

    How do I find the time? I'm on maternity leave at the moment andluckily for me, both my boys have an hour and half nap at the same time in the afternoon and then when they've gone to bed and the chores are done....
