Waving hello...


It's hard to believe we are far enough into the month for an ATS review preview already but here we are. I have a feeling that this summer is going to fly by. Anywho, today we are revisiting the newest stamps to be added to the CC designs range and I've colored up Swiss Pixie Snorkels for a happy summer inspired card. Giving her an underwater place to play in was a total no-brainer so I found another cool ombre paper in that Cosmo Cricket Summer Love paper pad and this one looked like waves. I really like how the graduating color makes it look like the water is getting deeper below Snorkels. I needed some more color though and that is why I added her fishy friends and the stripes in the background. Now that I've pulled out my bag of summer themed stickers I'm tempted to go through it and see if anything in it inspires more cards in the next couple months. It would be nice to whittle that collection down a bit. Oh, and I also played around a bit by adding some tiny seashell dies to Snorkels' hands. It doesn't show up real great in the photo but the sand dollar actually has the traditional sand dollar star shape embossed on it, which is very cute in person. I think it just finishes off the whole seen and I like how it looks as if she has been diving for 'treasures'.  :)

Alrighty, be sure to check out the ATS blog for plenty more inspiration from my fellow teamies. They are rockin' this whole summer theme fo' sho'! LOL

Amy, this is just too cute! I love this paper with her. It does make it look like she is headed to the top to show off her collected goodies. lol... This card just makes me smile. I think you are right though, it's going to be school time all too soon. :O) Hope you are enjoying that new car. Hugs, Lisa
