Summer Fun

Who's READY for some SUMMER FUN?!?

I am! I am! We heard ya over at The Greeting Farm, too, because Oliver and Amelia are already on the task at hand to bring YOU some SUMMER FUN!

Introducing....Oliver/Amelia SUMMER FUN!

I LOVE this set because I love pool days with the family. I love packing up a picnic lunch, getting the boys in the swim trunks, and heading over to the pool with all our pool toys in tote. My two little ones LOVE splashing in the pool, wearing goggles, their floaties, and swimming all day. It is one of our favorite summer activities. With that in mind, I created a fun card with one of the sentiments and Amelia dressed her little swim suit ready to jump in!
This new set is perfect for summer cards or layouts documenting your favorite summer memories. Summer Fun Set is full of great summer sentiments, and of course, adorable Oliver and Amelia ready to hit the pool or beach.
I colored Amelia with copics.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
Hair - E25, E23, E31, E50
Swimsuit - YR15, YR12, YR00, orange stickles
I cut Amelia our using my Beaded Ovals Nestie and added some dark orange gems to the beads.
I used Bo Bunny's summer paper from last year, and distressed everything with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink to make it even more Orange. I tucked in a Magnolia Doohickey Swirl and a big orange half flower behind the image. I then layered a white prima flower on top with another gem to make it all pop!
SUMMER FUN will be released this FRIDAY, JULY 1st, during our "BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT BLOG HOP/RELEASE PARTY, beginning at 12:01 am, CST...but you can WIN this adorable set today by 'swimmin' over to the TGF Blog to read how!

We sure do hope you'll splash on over to party with us this Friday, but for now, I'll be back tomorrow with ONE more preview- can you BELIEVE how HOT, HOT, HOT these releases are for the month of July?!? I can't wait to show you one more stamp tomorrow! See you then!

  4. I used to love to play in the pool on hot summer days too. I love how you thought to sponge some orange ink around the edges of the DP to give it a warm glow - I never think to sponge onto DP - wonderful idea! Thanks for the inspiration! Your coloring and this happy, summer color palette is terrific too!

  13. AWESOME!!! I wish we had a pool to hang out at but no such luck. Anyone else think she looks like she just threw a water balloon at Oliver?
