Blog Hop... with Sweet Summer (FREE Sale-a-bration stamp)

Hello again, and boy do I love the Sweet Summer Free Sale-a-bration stamp, it's so versatile, so much so I will be uploading more over the next few days. But here is my latest:

Here are the steps to make this card. I used Old Olive card, the pink DSP card and Whisper White card and Ribbon. The ink pads used were Old Olive and Melon Mamba with of course the SAB Sweet Summer Stamp Set. 

The card was cut horizontally, so you end up with a long strip, then the pink DSP was cut to size but not mounted as the Whisper White ribbon needs to be attached first.

Punch out 3 Extra large Scallops out of the Old Olive card and 3 out of the Whisper White.
You will be stamping 2 flowers on the white to mount on the Old Olive and stamping 1 on the Old Olive to mount on the Whisper White.

As you can see I used the Versamark for the leave on the Old Olive card, this gives a nice sheen stamp. I stamped a couple of bees, which I then coloured in using Daffodil yellow marker pen. 

Mount them so that the scallop edge is over lapping each other at opposite angles (hope that makes sense). 

The Whisper White Ribbon was then stuck in the middle of the Pink DSP. Ready for the 3 circles to be stuck. Actually only 2 fitted, so I did away with the green one!

A small saying was stamped (this is actually retired, it was the only one I had, but anyone will do, as you can add the butterfly from the Sweet Summer to tie in with the flowers!)

Viola' your Sweet Summer card is ready, if only it was sunny outside, as now I'm longing for Summer! Hope you enjoyed it, any comments welcome! Thank you D x
