Summer Stories Cards with Tessa Wise

Hi there!  I'm so excited to be sharing with you today- it's my first official post on the team blog!  Today I thought I'd share a few cards I created using the beautiful Summer Stories Collection.  All the patterned papers I used are from the 6x6 Designer Pad- it's the perfect size for cards!

My first card features a pretty floral pattern.  The floral is such a bold pattern, I wanted to keep the other elements soft. I used the camera washi tape and black and white polka-dotted brad to draw your eye towards the sentiment.

See that cute pink camera in the background?  It's my favorite stamp from the Summer Stories clear stamp set!

For this fun card, I used the striped patterned paper as my focal point.  I cut it into a tag shape and embellished it with a cluster of goodies including the glittered boarder strip- it sparkles so much under the light!

Isn't that gold pretty?  I also love how the pinwheel turned out- you can see the black and white pattern peeking out from behind perfectly!

My last card features the one of the gorgeous gold patterns in the collection.  It look so nice against the black card base.  This gold also looks great with the bright coral from the He Said She Said line.

I've used the gray chevron washi, a flag sticker, and a banner cut from the black and white patterned paper to create a cluster of embellishments here.  They are the perfect accent to the dandelion puffs, also from the Summer Stories clear stamp set!
