A Last Hurrah of Summer

     A lot of blogs have been showcasing Fall cards, but I am just not ready to accept that fall is fast approaching… and my last semester of law school. Quick, pinch me and tell me I’m not dreaming!!!
     So, here is my ode to the quickly fleeting summer days. For this set of cards I actually made them backwards. Normally, I start by creating my main image and then design the rest of the card around it. This time I made the designed the card first, only having an idea that I might use PTI’s Cupcake Creations. I found I became more creative with my color schemes.
     All the supplies  I used in my post today (excluding the Stickles) are by PTI. The stamp sets I used are PTI’s Cupcake Creations, Polka Dot Basics, Just the Ticket, and Say It With Style.

Tea & Roses

     Can I offer you a cuppa? Here I used the Waltzingmouse Stamps sets Afternoon Tea and Free Spirit – Boy (circle w/dot). The paper and ribbon are PTI and the ink is Memento (except for PTI’s Tea Dye Duo).

     This next card uses PTI’s A Little Argyle for the background. The roses and sentiment are by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The sets are Roses in Bloom and Fancy Phrases. The paper and ribbon are PTI. IRL the color difference between the ribbon and the cardstock is not so drastic.
