Summer Fun in Water & Sun!

If the title of my post got your interest... it should! Today the Impression Obsession gals are ushering in a fun new challenge -- Summer Fun and they are showing off some brand new stamps that were just released TODAY to showcase this challenge!

On to my creation and a darling new clear stamp set from IO by Claudia Tenorio-Pearl! You can see all the NEW stamps by clicking HERE. This one is called Jill (CS376) and is a darlin' little gal on the beach....

This card is pretty simple -- just a 5-1/2" square with layers to fit inside. The little pennants on the side are actually from a Spellbinders Die called Nested Pennants. I used a range of decorative papers (from Glitz' Happy Travels collection) to make them all stand out. You can see I used one of the sentiments from this little clear set -- "Oh Happy Day!" on one of the pennants and then, threaded through some baker's twine in a bright red. Add some stitching and a button and... ta da! 

Here's a close up-- I colored my image with these Copic Markers: R20, R29, E31, E33, E55, E57, BG72, BG70, BG11, BG000, BG0000, RV52, RV00, C00, C03, C05, E50, and YR0000. You can also see that I added a bit of sparkle to the sand with the help of some Stickles Diamond glitter. 
 And... here's a closeup showing that little sentie tag!
You'll have to make the rounds to see what the rest of the Impression Obsession Design Team has in store and what fun new stamps they are showing off!

Total CUTENESS! The addition of the border down the side is so clever, and a perfect finishing touch to a darling card! Love it, Julie - thanks for sharing!!! (Whew...took six tries to get the scrambled words typed in right!)

Cute! Really like her hat. Did Ellie model for this stamp set? Yep, that was my first thought since every picture I've seen of the kid is downright adorable (she obviously takes after her maternal grandmama). Happy Easter!
