Shaded Summer Friendship Card - Ink, Stamp, Share Showcase Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

There is sometimes so much excitement surrounding the new products in new catalogues that sometimes we forget about the lovely sets that we already have. I recently saw a card made using the Shaded Summer stamp set and dies and remembered that it was in my stash, so I pulled it out to make this card. I've teamed it with the Brights dsp stack in my favourite Melon Mambo.


1 piece of thick basic white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white card stock 3" x 4"
1 piece of Brights dsp (Melon Mambo) 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of melon mambo, basic white and granny apple green
Shaded Summer stamp set
Memento Black ink
Scalloped Contour dies
Summer Shadows dies
Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Iridescent Rhinestones


On the long side score the thick white card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp to the card front.

Die cut the middle sized rectangle from white and then the solid flowers in melon mambo, the solid leaves in granny apple green and then the outlines in white.

Adhere the outlines to the solid leaves and flowers.

Stamp a sentiment at the top of the rectangle and then added the flowers and leaves using dimensionals and add the rectangle to the card front, also using dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card is required.

Add some rhinestones for added bling.
