I'm already thinking about Christmas cards and holiday projects (because, why not?!) but I'm still having fun making summertime projects at the same time. Today begins a new challenge on the Impression Obsession blog, and the theme is Summer Fun, so I pulled out my trusty favorite summertime stamp set and did a little crafting! Are you ready to take a look at some colorful summer cards?

Good Old Summertime is a set I've turned to again and AGAIN this summer! The sweet images are so fun to mix and match for handmade cards! On the first card, I stuck with the DRINKS (YUM) and paired them with the perfect sentiment "Drink in the Summertime". I used watercolor pencils to color this tasty rainbow of beverages, and then added some glaze and glitter to add some extra sparkle.

I really like the contrast of the black and white patterns from paper and washi tape too - but then again, I'm always a sucker for bright colors paired with black and white!

Up next, the same stamp set but a TOTALLY different look and technique! For this card I wanted to make a stamped background of all the cute images in this set. To make it easy, I used one medium size clear block and I fit as many stamps on as I could. This takes a little bit of trial and error and stamping on scrap paper to make sure everything is straight and spaced out evenly, but the work is worth it - because then it only took about four impressions to stamp all of these small images onto my cardstock panel. I used markers to color these images in and finished it off with the HELLO SUMMER sentiment.
