Summer Mini Sneak Peek!

I got to play yesterday!  I got my preorder from the summer mini over a week ago and yesterday I finally got to play around with my new goodies!  I stamped just for the fun of it...no challenges, no contest, no prep for clubs or workshops.  Not that I don't like doing all those things, it was just fun to stamp for no reason at all.  Here are a couple of cards I made with the Elements of Style stamp set that is featured in the Summer Mini.  If you don't have your copy yet, email me or leave a comment in this post and I'll send you one right away.

I made this card by coloring the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Melon Mambo, Always Artichoke, and a little bit of Close to Cocoa:

For this one, I used my colored pencils.  I haven't used these in forever!  This stamp set really screams color me!!


I love the way this card turned out.  For this one I used Lovely Lilac, Soft Suede, and Old Olive.  I colored the flowers in with colored pencils and a blender pen. 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check back on Friday for the Royal Blog Tour!!

Lovely cards, such a nice job coloring the second one, I love the look colored pencils give an image!

These are both beautiful cards and a wonderful sneak peek!. I have about a zillion flower stamps, but I have been eyeing this set.

Both are beautiful. I especially love the first with the markers directly on the stamp, saves the step of coloring and still looks great.
