Here are two quick cards that I made for summer Card Camp 2011 and for Hero Arts current challenge.
Stamps used: Hero Arts Thanks So Much Owl K5283 and Life of the Party CL514. The original sentiment on this owl stamp says "thanks so much" and it is in brackets. I thought that this owl would make a good image for a party invite so, I substituted the words for "Birthday Party!" The words on the card comes from the Life of the Party CL514 Hero Arts stamp set. The circles on the background are colored green, but they don't show up very well on camera.
The stamps used for "birthday Party" are Hero Arts: Summer Memories E3374, Layered Flowers CL496, Thinking of You CL140 and Thoughtful Messages CL184. I don't have any sentiment stamps that expresses a memorable summer, so I made my own by combining three stamp sets. The "Enjoy Every moment" comes from the Thoughtful Messages stamp set, the word "of" comes from the Thinking of You stamp set CL140, and the word "Summer" comes from the Summer Memories stamp E3374. The flower comes from Layered flowers stamp set CL496. I embossed the flower onto water color paper using black embossing powder and then I colored the flower with Memento markers.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend.
