Easy Graphic Style Cards for Summer

Hello Crafters! 

I'm popping in with a super simple way to create some fun summer cards in a more graphic style. 


I actually posted the video two days ago but didn't realize my blog post didn't auto post until today. 
My bad. 
If you're a frequent visitor here you know life has been crazy for me lately. 
When that happens sometimes it's nice to sit down and pop out a few simple but fun cards. 


My first approach was to use just one super simple paint swipe stamp and lots of bright colors. 
I'm totally digging that Summertime die and it was really easy to make it the star of the show. 
 

I used more masculine colors on this one but they are still really bright and fun. Perfect for summer. 


This card is actually the one I had in my head when I sat down. These pinks and oranges make my heart happy. I just adore how well Distress Oxides stamp! 


For next attempt I brought in the abstract stencil and did some rainbow ink blending. I love the bright colors with the clean white lines! 


This one came out a little less clean when it came to my die cut. It was actually me fixing an error. 

You can check out my mistake and all the other cards in the video below. 


I do really love the way all four came out. Added benefit they were so fast to make!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
