Summertime Inspirations...

Today's Papertrey Ink peaks are all about Summer Inspiration.  I had so much creating with these new products and I am excited to share.  The color combos of summer make great cards!

This first card uses the new set called Some Like it Hot.

I used the Outline Stamp set to create this watercolor background.  I heat embossed the image and then came in with Peerless watercolors.  I stamped out and die cut the pineapple and added it to the card.  The sentiment is from the Some Like it Hot set as well.  I love these sentiments because they die cut out so easy.  I added in some rain drops to finish off the card.

I kept my next card super CAS.  Maile has a new set called Tropics and its gorgeous!

First, I stamped these 2 leaf images on the card front.  I added lots of Copic detail to each leaf and then added some gray shading so they would stand off the card front.  I stamped and colored the flower from the Some like it Hot set, along with a sentiment from that same set.  Super easy!

So that is it for Day 2.  We have another fun day tomorrow, so I hope you stop back by.  There will be lots more to see today over on Nichole's blog so head over there to check it out!
