It's Summertime Virtual Stamp Weekend!!

Come and join us for Virtual Stamping over at Splitcoast. The theme is Summertime In The Land That I love with all kinds of fun challenges posted. I am one of the hostesses this time so I have some samples already prepared and will share them here on my blog for you also. Hope you can play!

All supplies for this are Stampin' Up. I used the new Artistic Etchings set from SU along with French Foliage and En Francais background stamp/ I sponged Confetti Tan cardstock with poppy, Caramel, and Mustard inks to give it an aged postcard look.

Next we have a camping or nature inspired theme. I went with a very clean and simple design using the new Just Believe set from SU.

This is the wax paper resist technique using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Tutorial can be found in the Resources section at SCS. Emboss a sheet of waxed paper with your folder, insert between two sheets of glossy cardstock and iron together. This will leave the embossed image on the glossy cardstock. I then brayered it with my retired Stampin' Up Kaleidoscope ink pad Cotton Candy which is various shades of pink. Central image is from the new hostess level 1 set Punch Potpourri and is layered with various Nestabilities shapes.

This is for the "window" challenge. Use any type of window image or technique.
I used SU's Window On The World image with Mark's Finest Paper's sentiment (from the upcoming set Thankful Mums & Pumpkin), and SU Autumn Spice Paper with Dusty Durango and Very Vanilla cardstocks.

This is for the summertime foods inspiration. The image is by Anita's Rubber Stamps and is colored in Copic markers. The designer paper is by Crafty Secrets. Ribbon, sentiment and embellishments by Stampin' Up.
