inky paws challenge - summer color inspiration

hello again!
today i'm back sharing a card i created for the newest inky paws challenge going on over at the newton's nook blog! :)

i LOVE this color story, perfect for the brand new set just released - sweet summer, and just for anything summer, really!

isn't it fantastic?

so yes, here's my card, i sort of went literal...ha!

i used the sweet summer stamp set! and watercolored all of the images with distress inks on an acrylic block! really FUN!

after all of the images were cut out and arranged, i stamped the sentiment onto some vellum (guilty!!) and made a banner, adding some stitched lines to mimic the stitched lines in the fruit!  FUN!

so now it's your turn to play along
i can't wait to see what you make!


  1. This is so cute! I love this bright fun color palette!

  2. Love this card, Sam! Such a cute little cluster of fruit, and, of course, the pretty vellum!!

  3. So pretty! I love the cluster/grouping and the watercoloring is fantastic!

  4. The colours you have used are just delicious! Such a great card!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
