Say hello to this month's stamp set: Fun In the Sun

DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? Theses same designs are included in Summer Outline Brushes and Stamps.

Here's the page I created using this set:

This month I put together a video overview while the layout was in progress. Take a look:

We Heart Sunshine | Technique Tuesday Studio AE June 2013 Blog Hop from Ali Edwards on Vimeo.

For today's layout I started with a great piece of pattern paper from BasicGrey's Hey You 12x12 paper pad.

If you are like me you've probably collected one or two (or a hundred) different sets of 3x4 Project Life cards. One of the things I love about them is that they can totally be used on 12x12 layouts and not just in Project Life. Here I used some of the 3x4 grid cards paired with 3x4 photos. On top of the photos I added some printed vellum from Kelly Purkey's April/May Project Life kit from Simon Says Stamp.

Playing with some spay ink/mist this time as a background for my embossed stamps.

I embossed these two first two stamps (with Rouge Zing) on top of white cardstock that had been sprayed with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine (primrose) + Studio Calico Mister Huey (sunset).

After doing that I decided that they needed a bit more yellow/orange rather than so much pink/red so I sprayed both the banners I'd already cut out and sprayed the paper again with Mustard Color Shine.

I cut each of those banners from the cardstock and adhered them onto the grid cards using foam dots.

Over the seam where the photos and the grid cards meet I added yellow/white Vellum Tape from Little Yellow Bicycle, the cork tab (also from Little Yellow Bicycle and stitched in place), two light green/cream letter stickers for each of our initials, and a stamped sentiment from that great little Dear Lizzy rolling stamp.

The red stars are from Michaels.

    Such simple shapes but the tiny pieces of layering and stamping are what make you look twice at this layout.
    As usual I ask "why didn't I think of that"
    Love it.

    The use of the spray/mist for the background and the embossing of the stamped image is very effective.

    It's nice to see some examples with ink mist. I have a couple bottles and have yet to really break it out and use it. I love the way you use to many different pieces together and make a cohesive page from them.
    Thanks for the ideas.
