Sweet, Sweet Summer!
Oh the joys of sleeping in a little bit, taking the kids to the park, swinging on the swings and having a picnic! Ah, summer! How sweet it is! So, today I'm sharing a card featuring some sweet strawberries - a perfect summer treat. This is a rubber cling stamp for which I wish I could give the designer/manufacturer credit but I threw out the package some time ago. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink by Tsukneko. The ink you use with Copic markers is very important. This one doesn't run and therefore doesn't ruin your expensive Copic marker! Also, I stamped the image on Georgia Pacific white cardstock which I got for a good price at Walmart. I think this cardstock is great to use with Copics and I have tried more expensive brands. The red background is embossed using the Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dot folder. Boy, I get a lot of use out of that Swiss Dot folder!! The black ribbon is from Joann's. Did you notice that the image is crooked on the card? Yep, what a bummer but hey nothing is ever perfect anyway!
Enjoy your summer and all the sweet moments shared with your family!
