Summer Stories Card Set by Tessa Wise

Hello!  I have had so much fun making cards lately!  This set, using the beautiful Summer Stories line came together quickly and I can't wait to send them out to my loved ones!  Take a look:

I started this one by decorating the simple journal card with a banner at the top.  I added some patterned paper, decorative tape, and  border.  Then I added the sentiment with stickers and embellished with some pretty pink epoxy dots and twine.

I matted it in black and added it to my chevron patterned card base.  Those pink dots look like candy, don't they?
Here is my next one:

I used another journaling card as my focal point- maybe that's why these cards were so quick! :)  I stamped the camera in pink and then splattered some gold mist over it.  When it was dry, I added the chipboard and die-cut banners with a pretty brad to the top.  I added the sentiment and twine to finish it off.  Last, I matted it on my card base.

I've gotten so much use out of these letter stickers!  Such a basic staple- I think I could use them on everything!
My next card also has some stamping on it:

I created my cardbase and covered the front with the pretty woodgrain patterned paper.  I added a tag to the bottom and layered some of the Summer Stories stickers on the left.  I added the decorative brads next and then the chipboard ticket.  I stamped the flower with gold ink and let it dry.  When it was done, I added my sentiment, a twine bow, and a little splatter of gold mist.

I love the clustered look I ended up with!
Here is my last card:

For this one, I started with my cardbase covered in the collage patterned paper.  I added the banners and tag to the top.  Next, I added my sentiment to the ticket and punched holes in both sides.  I attached it to the card and tied the twine around it, ending in a bow.

I'm so happy with how these cards turned out!  The glitter and gold adds a little drama while the color scheme feels light and airy.  It is perfect for this time of year!  :)
