A Taste of Summer Blog Hop

Today I have the honor of participating in a blog hope for Lisa Decosse of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. Lisa asked me to use a spectacular new kit that she created for Through the Craft Room Door Magazine. It's the first time Lisa and I are being published so I am truly  honored that she asked me to participate. Read the details below and win some fabulous paper from the kit or even the entire kit. Each of the stops on the hop will be giving away different prizes so don't forget to visit them all.


 Lisa D. from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles is this month's
Featured Artist in the Through The Craftroom Door Magazine.

She created a brand new digital kit to mark the occasion and asked several
of her crafting buddies to help out by creating samples for the July/August edition!

We've all come together to celebrate this event by bringing you a blog hop

For my stop along the hop, I am excited to share the project I created for the magazine.
Check it out: I made two cards with Lida's dynamite new Taste of Summer Kit.


The background paper is from the Textured Paper pack and is embossed with a honeycomb embossing folder. Iused the sun image from the Elements section of the kit and die cut the image with Spellbinder's Picot Edge Circles. The sentiment is from Create with TLC printed on another color from the Textured Paper pack and edged with MFT Dainty Lace Borders. To finish off the card I added three brads from the Brads, Buttons and Bows section to match my sentiment paper.
I am entering these challenges:

My second cards makes me long for a day (or two or three) at the beach. The designer paper is from the Glitter Paper pack. The wave, splashes, flip flops, sunglasses, and sunscreen are from the Elements pack. The sentiment is from a retired Gina K summer stamp TV kit called Enjoy the Sunshine. The designer paper sections are popped away from the white for added texture to the card. 
I am entering these challenges:
I hope you've enjoyed my take on Lisa's wonderful new Taste of Summer kit. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave a comment to win the awesome paper prize.

What a wonderful interpretation of our red, white and blue theme! I would've never in a million years thought to combine patriotic colors with a beach theme, but you nailed it! I love how you've captured that fabulous Summer feeling with your clever creation! Thank you so much for sharing it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.
