Not ready to say goodbye to summer....

It's true. I love summer.
The long, warm days. Flip flops. Shorts & Tank tops.
I love that.

Don't get me wrong...Fall is beautiful too but fall is sometimes short-lived season in these parts of Canada. It could snow any day now and I am definitely not ready.

Which brings me to these cards I made last week on the first day of fall. Initially, I was just making an anniversary card for my in-laws and decided to use my Peerless Watercolor's & the Timeless Love set from Stampin' Up!
 I was really happy with the way it turned out and had a craving to make some more cards.
I went to YouTube for inspiration and found the lovely & talented Nicole of Scraps & Stamps
Her video tutorials are awesome! Her most recent video using Distress Inks & Color Burst  has me wanting to go out and buy the whole line of Ken Oliver Color Burst products immediately! 
Thanks, Nicole!

 The Blended Bloom stamp from Stampin' Up! worked really well.
The image was first stamped with Versa Mark then 
heat embossed with superfine white embossing powder.

I used the same stamping technique with this card using the 
Flower Garden set from Tim Holtz & Stampers Anonymous.
I decided to leave the background white for a softer feel.

I love the butterfly from the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Perspective stamp set 
and just had to try it with this technique. I love it and I already have 
several colour combo's I want to try.

Thanks for visiting my blog today! I really appreciate all your comments.
