I have two very different cards for your inspiration today. 


Camelia CC409
In My Heart D13912
French Text CC151
Strong For Long E12238 (inside)

I embossed the Camelia onto watercolor paper with white embossing powder.  I painted the image and background with Daniel Smith watercolors.  


                                            When dry, I masked the image, and stamped the French Text onto the background.



I dyed a strip of vellum with blue ink, the embossed the In My Heart verse on it, and attached it to the panel.  

I attached the panel to a white card front, and added some pearl sequins.


Inside:

I used the Strong For Long verse with blue Ranger Archival ink, and stamped the Camelia with distress ink.



Card 2:
Beach Bunny F13914
Vitamin Sea CL1025 (inside verse)

I just adore this sweet little bunny on the beach with her polka dot umbrella!  


 
I stamped the Beach Bunny onto watercolor paper, and painted her with a water brush and distress ink refills.  I also created the background with the inks.



I added the panel to an A2 card front, and added a strip of black and white striped patterned paper along the edge.

I stamped the Sweet, sweet summer verse from the Vitamin Sea set onto a scrap and added it to the card with foam tape for dimension.


Inside:
Verse is from the Vitamin Sea set.

That's it for today.  I will be back tomorrow with more cards from the summer release.  Be sure to hop on over to the other designer's blogs.  You can find links to their posts on the Impression Obsession blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.  

Blessings,
