Introducing Take Three: Summer

I am thrilled to share my newest release from the Urban Design collection called Take Three: Summer which will be available through Papertrey Ink on May 15th, 2010. If you missed the Take Three: Spring release, you may not know that "Take Three" is a series collection.  And since you already know there is a Spring and Summer you can bet there will be a Fall and Winter too!

I am so excited to share the two focal images in Take Three: Summer stamp set.  Don't forget, there are three different images of each to choose from too so you can mix and match, flip and turn them as much as you like to make a unique card.

CONGRATulations Flower Trio

The first card not only has a simple layout but is also simple to create.  I just love the colour combo--so fresh for a summer's day! Not to mention the flower is one of my fav designs in the entire collection!  I used all three flowers in this stamp set.  This congratulations card could be given as an end of the school year card, for a job promotion, or for someone who is expecting.

Step 1: Stamp flower images using Raspberry Fizz ink on Stamper's select white.  Tip: draw two fine lines using a ruler to create even spacing of images.
Step 2: Stamp the congratulations sentiment using True Black ink.
Step 3: Using the scallop die cut, cut a scalloped edge using True Black cardstock.
Step 4: As a final touch add the gingham ribbon, round the corners on the card base and adhere all layers.

BIRD's Eye View Friendship

The second card was created using one of the bird images from this set.  I like the ability to mix and match birds or choose just one as a focal image.  Besides, when you add colour it changes the look anyways :)  You'll note that I stamped the bird image in three colours but also coloured the eye black using a marker. 

Step 1: Stamp bird image using New Leaf, Scarlet Jewel and Spring Rain.  Tip: draw two fine lines using a ruler to create even spacing of images.
Step 2: Stamp the wonderful friend sentiment using True Black ink.
Step 3: Cut several layered pieces of cardstock. 
Step 4: As a final touch add the saddlestitch ribbon (button the bottom in v-shape), cardstock threaded button and adhere all layers.
