Summer Solstice

Happy Saturday!  Hope you have some time to play and be creative…

Today, I am keeping it simple and playing with the Theme from Less Is More (#470), the Colors suggested by the Global Design Project (#353) Team and the Tuesday Morning (#668) Sketch.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (3¾” x 3¼”) Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
  • Focal Panel: (4¼” x 3”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Using a Blending Brush, Soft Sea Foam ink was swirled into the upper left area of the panel.
    • The sentiment, We meet no ordinary people in our lives., from the retired Summer Solstice stamp set was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink along the bottom and to the right of the panel.
  • Focal Image – Butterflies: (3½” x 3”) Vellum
    • The Butterfly image from the same stamp set, was stamped into Versamark ink and then into Bermuda Bay ink three times, cleaning the stamp each time, and heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder.
    • The backs of the Butterflies were colored with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend Marker.
    • The Butterflies were then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The card was assembled to match the sketch and the Butterflies were adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Clean and simple! Quick and easy!

  1. I would call this a BCAS card, Beautiful Clean And Simple. The color combo is striking and the soft color behind the butterflies is very subtle but effective. Wonderful to have you sharing your creation with everyone at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Debi DT TMS
