Sweet Summer

So we've had a few days of wonderful weather now ... summer is here to stay.  The sun is shining, the temperature is a comfortable, and there's a nice breeze blowing.  More more could I ask for??  Watermelon!!  One of the sweetest treats during summer.  What better way to enjoy it, than the adorable digi stamps from Lisa's Doodley Doos (available at Clear Dollar Stamps).  I have long admired Lisa Lara's fun style of cards.  Happy and bright, they always put a smile on my face.  I only learned a short while ago that she creates digital stamps ... and I have already purchased three sets.  Love them all!  Today's set is no exception.  Hope you'll join me for some sweet watermelon treats ... Lisa-style!

"Sweet Summer"

Stamps:  What a Melon digital stamp set (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Sentiment - computer generated in black; basic black, melon mambo (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Pink Sorbet and Peapod Twine (The Twinery); glue, glue dot, and sticky strips

Super easy and CAS card using paper piecing technique.  Set up the sentiment and image on my computer to size and printed onto Whisper White cardstock.  Printed the image again onto Wild Wasabi cardstock ... and a third time onto Melon Mambo polka dot DP.  Cut out the colored images and glued them to my Whisper White card front.  Colored in the seeds and juicy drops with my Stampin' Write markers - basic black and melon mambo.

Added a twine bow to the card front, secured with a glue dot under the knot.  Mounted the card front onto my card base of heavy white cardstock.  I also created an inside panel with a paper-pieced slice of watermelon in the bottom right hand corner (see below) - so adorable!

Quick and easy card ... and so much fun to make!

I absolutely love CAS cards (though I really struggle making them -- I'm a pile it on person!) -- yours is especially pretty - great job!!
