Celebrate Summer!


Hi everyone,

I am back again today with another card to share with you. This time my card is for this week’s Pink Elephant challenge. This week the challenge was a theme challenge, the theme being Summer!

Summer is the perfect time for picnics so I used MFT Stamps “Let’s Picnic” stamp set to create my card. I paper pieced both the girls dress and the picnic blanket. Before adding the paper pieced pieces I used my copic airbrush to create the blue sky.

Head over to the Pink Elephant Challenge blog if you want to play along. You can also see what the other design team members created this week.


Stamps: Let’s Picnic – MFT Stamps

Paper: White; Rose Red & Baja Breeze – SU; Lemonade DP – Basic Grey

Other: Black Ink; Circle Nestabilities; Long Rectangle Nestabilities; Oval Punch; Scallop Oval Punch; Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copic Airbrush System; Copics

Amazing paper piecing! I love how you can mix patterns like that. I am so afraid of that. You make it look so easy. Great job.
