#871 – STB: All About Summer!

PE: Winner at the Timeout Challenge #163

Timeout challenge winner

Hello and welcome! Its time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday challenge, and the topping this time, chosen by our teammate Colleen, is ‘All About Summer’. However, if you are not up for it, you can always play along with just a birthday project!

And here’s what I made –

I am not completely sure if this is qualified for a Summer theme, but there is a sun in it….:P

Making the card was pretty straight forward – Stamped the images from My Favorite Things ‘Things with Wings’ stamp set, colored them using my Zig brush markers. I used distress inks for the grass and sky, and cut the grass using My Favorite Things Grassy Fields die. The whole panel was cut using Mama Elephant So Sew die. I stamped the sentiment after the assembly of the top panel, and it is a combination of Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout and Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words stamp sets.

Hope you enjoyed my card. Remember to check up on the Seize the Birthday blog for more creative inspiration from the rest of our design team and of course, from out talented Surprise Guest Jo Avery! And don’t forget to join us using your own birthday project!

  1. Gorgeous summery scene, love the dimension from popping the elements up and off the edge of the diecut panel, such cute birds too Ashwini, Cathy x

  2. I adore this card with all things summer. Great scene and so cheerful. Something that we all need about now.

  3. This is a perfectly balanced card! Placement of your images and sentiment is just spot on! Fabulous Summer card

    • I was wondering if I stuffed it too full of things, but I didn’t want to take off even a single piece when I made the card! So, thank you!!

  4. This card is really wonderful. I like what Vicki said about it being so well thought out and balanced and she is completely correct. I especially love your grass. I am going to have to borrow that idea next time I make some. I love that is it so realistic. This is at the top of my long list of favorite cards of yours! I am going to have to PIN it so I can refer back to it!

  5. What a fun card! I especially love all the texture in the grass! Great scene. Thank you for joining us at Time Out!

  6. I think it is a great summery scene you created Ashwini. Love all the dimension with the raised elements.

  7. Totally qualifies as summer. So bright and cheerful – love your colouring! Especially love the grass – lol.
