Summer Mini Card Samples

Here are some cards I have made lately using items from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.

This card was inspired by Shelli. I used the Presto Patterns Specialty paper (#117175) and brayered Old Olive ink over it then spritzed with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (#119921).
Also used: Very Vanilla cardstock (101650), Sincere Salutations (115068), Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (117291), and Scallop Edge punch (112091).

On this card I used the rest of the Presto Patterns paper that I had inked with Old Olive and I sponged the edges of it with Rich Razzleberry ink and then distressed the edges with the cutter kit (106958)distressing tool. I stamped the Bella Toile background stamp (111598) in Old Olive onto the Rich Razzleberry cardstock (115316). Also used: Rich Razzleberry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (115613, just turned it over to the plain side), Elements of Style "for you" (120045 clear, 118611 wood), Square Ice Rhinestone brad (109113), Linen Thread (104199) and 1" circle punch (109046).

This card features the Motorcycle stamp (117657) from the Summer Mini. Embossed the motorcycle in black on Whisper White, colored in the motorcycle with the Real Red stampin write marker and then sponged the edges with Real Red and Basic Black. Mounted that on black and then on the Real Red card base that I had sponged black on the edges of. I stamped Happy Fathers Day (Teeny Tiny Wishes 115370) and then using the Mat Pack (105826) paper-piercing template and the Paper-piercing tool ("116631) I pierced holes on either side. Spritzed the whole card with Silver Foil smooch spritz (118770).

I love the Elements of Style stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog! (118611 wood, 120045 clear) For this card I used Very Vanilla and Basic Black cardstock. I colored in the image with Bashful blue, So Saffron and Old Olive ink with a Aqua Painter (103954). Used the new Square Lattice Embossing folder (119976) on the Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged with Bashful Blue and Log Cabin smooch spritz (119921) which I also spritzed on the whole card. Also used: Tiny Tags (117690 wood, 118598 clear), Jewelry Tag punch (117190), Bashful Blue satin ribbon (117290), and Square Ice rhineston brad (109113). Oh, I also spritzed the whole card with Vanilla Shimmer smooch spritz (118772).

Love this card! This uses the All a Flutter stamp (118284) and the Watercolor Trio stamp set (117050 wood, 120084 clear) from the Summer mini catalog. I also used the grass stamp from Inspired by Nature (111656). Cardstock is Old Olive and Confetti White. Ink colors; Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Rose Red, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa.
