Creative Crew August Challenge - Saying "Goodbye" to Summer - Catalogue

Catalogue Focus

Well, all good things must come to an end and I'm sad to say that this is my last month on the Creative Crew team.  It's been such an honour to be part of this team and also very enjoyable - I'm going to miss it but wish the new team all the best - I know they'll come up with lots of  beautiful inspiration for us all.
Adios, Lazy Days of Summer!  Now is the time for all summery goodies to rock your stamping table!  No summertime stamps?  Let your project take us away on a splendid summer vacation in any way you wish!

Well, it might not be a vacation, but to me roses represent Summer!  And my favourite roses are a combination of yellow and pink.

Z-fold card featuring Timeless Elegance DSP
You may have noticed that I really love the Timeless Elegance DSP!  It's so versatile and so easy to dress up - just add a little colour.  Here I watercoloured one of the rose images and cut it out with the Deco Labels framelits and edged it with black ink.  I layered this onto Crushed Curry, which I cut with the next size up of framelit.

I stamped with a Petite Petals stamp onto Crushed Curry and Basic Grey with Watermelon Wonder and punched them out with the matching Petite Petals punch.  Then I punched  little flowers from Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder and Basic Grey with the Itty Bitty Accents punch.  The centres of the flowers are a combination of Candy Dots and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The fold is a Z-fold from Naturals Ivory card stock (I missed it's retirement - sorry.  However, Very Vanilla would do the trick) which I layered with Basic Grey and Timeless Elegance DSP.

I used the smaller of the two framelits to cut another label in Very Vanilla.  I stamped the circular image from A Whole Lot of Lovely in the middle, edged it with black ink and added some Crushed Curry Candy Dots.  Then I stuck this to the inside part of the card so that, when the card is closed, it is hidden by the yellow label on the top of the card.

Then I liberally sprinkled my card with the little flowers to end up with a summer garden.

Thanks for looking.
