Challenge 209 | Summer Scenes!

We are into summer now so we decided to celebrate it!  Make a summer themed card - use summer stamps and/or summer paper!  The design team was on a roll and used summer fruits inspired by the challenge image.  You don't have to do that - what makes you think of summer?  Join us!

Remember to use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!

Are you on Facebook?  If you share our challenge on your Facebook page, we will happily share your post!

To be considered for a Top Pick and to receive comments - be sure to link your card below!

Be sure to play along with us! This challenge ends June 30, 2023.


We are excited to welcome back Stephanie Severin as our Guest Designer.  Stephanie blogs at Ingenious Inkling and cooks up some sweet cards!  Stef did a fantastic job with this challenge!  She is showcasing one of the great things about summer - sweet corn!  This image pops with the greens and yellowy oranges.  This is summer!  Be sure to stop by Stef's blog and leave her a comment!
