Tomorrow is our New Catalog Open House, and I have been busy creating cards and samples using our new products. I am crazy about the Mixed Drinks stamp set. It's like a having an adult coloring book and you get to choose your colors to fill it it, and add all the little embellishments to make the drinks fun. I try to imagine what kind of drink I am putting in each glass, and what my friends would be drinking at my party. However, when it gets late at night, and I am trying to come up with inspiration for another card, I will turn to a couple challenge blogs to give my brain a poke. Stampin' Celebration Challenge 128 just looked like it was screaming "party" to me. The SU-Only Challenge #150 was looking for "Summer Celebrations", and I was up for that too.
I found the perfect summery papers in the Affectionately Yours DSP with some Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush papers. And as I stamped my card I imagined making sweet lemonade in a mason jar, some cucumber limeade over ice, and some watermelon sangria for me! What's your summer pleasure? Hope I inspired you, and stop by the open house tomorrow for some more inspiration. Check my events in the left column for more information.
