I've used the lovely Sweet Summer set for my first two cards. This has to be my favourite from the free sets, although they are all pretty cute! I've stamped the banner of Rose Red cardstock with the vine in versamark and then I've scored some lines two-thirds across. You could also use the Stampin' Up! paper crimper to do this for some added dimension. The vine in the main image has been stamped with Certainly Celery and then I've gone over the stamped image using the same ink but with my blender pen. The seed head flower has again been coloured using those fabulous blender pens, and mounted with dimensionals. For an extra little touch I've added a button from the neutral set and added a tiny tag. I just love Tiny Tags, it's one of those sets that at first I wasn't sure I'd use, but now it's one of my most reached for sets.
The second Sweet Summer card is a nice simple card that just uses the three flower heads, with a tiny flower added with a dimensional, and of course decorated with a tiny basic pearl.
Bliss! How gorgeous are these little butterflies?!
And my final for today is one that was inspired by one of Mary Fish's cards, I've just shrunk it down a bit. I love this colour combination of Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue.
