Pals Summer Sunshine Blog Hop

It's time for some fun in the sun with the Pals! Glad you could join us for the Pals Summer Sunshine Blog Hop! You've probably hopped over from Maggie Mata at Maggie Made Cards.  I'm stop number 11 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for summer themed Stampin' Up! projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

My card is all about bright, sunny summer time fun.  I used the Bright Blossoms stamp set using ink colors in Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Summer Smooches collection. I just love lining up strips of this paper to make a sunny statement of color and design.

Just a little extra touch of a Designer Button with a quick tie of Baker's Twine

    1. Thanks Linda. Hope you're having a "bright" and "beautiful" summer.

  5. Great colors and use of DSP :) Also LOVE your blog name!

  6. Very sweet card - love the pretty colors!

    1. Thanks Carol. Summer colors are so refreshing. Makes me want to grab a glass of lemonade.

  7. Angela, cute design with the circles, DSP, and sentiment!! Love the color combo as well along with the little button on top.

    1. Thanks Mikki. I've been wanting to use this stamp set for awhile and felt it needed to be simple and happy

  8. This card reflects Summer Sunshine! Love this card. What a great idea to use the various strips of DSP...really adds pizazz!

    1. Marian, thanks so much. Yes, sunshine is a good thing.

  9. Your color choices are great! It just screams summer!

    1. Thanks Kim. Actually it's screaming hot summer where I live. Hope you're having a good summer!

  10. So bright and cheerful! Great colors.

    1. Thanks Diane. I love getting comments. It's like having people visit my living room. So welcome and hello!

  11. Love the color combo - great 'sunshine' card :)

  12. Sweet sweet sweet! I love the happy theme of your card along with the spring color combo and layers! Thanks for sharing with a new visitor!

  13. I have to say I really love how you took the Summer Smooches DSP and went with a softer look. There is still alot of color but I love that you left out the brightness of the Rich Razzleberry... it makes me look at the DSP a little different now because the other was almost too much. I just love the 'quieter' look to this card. It makes me feel relaxed as summer should be in my book:)

    1. What an amazing comment. I agree that this DSP can almost "slam" you down with all it's smoochiness. Going strip by strip kind of tames the smooch so you can just relax and enjoy it. Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by.
