End Of Summer

Happy weekend, all! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful day. Can you believe that it's almost the end of summer? I do like cooler weather and I can't wait for fall to arrive. =) Here is a card that I made using a image by Maurie Manning.


This image is called End Of Summer. I used the clear stamp version by Stampavie found here, but you can also find the digital version here at Mo's Digital Pencil.


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White card stock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die. I matted the image with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Scalloped Ovals Large die before stitching the layers together.


The patterned paper is from the super yummy Thrift Shop collection (still one of my most favorites) by October Afternoon. The tag and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink.

That's it for now. For more inspirations using images from Mo's Digital Pencil, please visit Mo's Dream Team Blog.





Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I'm right there with you regarding the cooler weather, Alice! We had had it for the past week or so, but Mother Nature is giving us one final blast of HEAT (mid-90's) yesterday and today!! LOVE this image, reminds me of myself as a child - I was a dreamer :)) Have a great weekend!

The color combo is great! And the sentiment card with the ribbon and button embellishment at the corner of the card made the colors and design more magical plus it made the colors pop up.
