Sum, Sum, Summatime

Summatime, Summatime, Sum, Sum, Summatime!  It's officially HOT and summer down here in Texas-  with days in the high 90s and topping 100!  I can always go for a glass of ice cold lemonade.  Who can resist?  Today's projects all have a summer theme and all use the super cute Tart and Tangy Set.  I hope you enjoy.

My first project is a recipe card for Pink Lemonade. I used a piece of the new Daffodil Delight paper and I'm loving the color! It's not quite as "in your face" as Yoyo Yellow or Summer Sun. I see "delightful" days in my future :)
Supplies (all supplies Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, From the Kitchen Of
Ink: Melon Mambo Marker, Soft Suede
Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red
Other: 1 ¼” Circle Punch, 1 3/8” Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Now onto a great little card for a summer gift bag.  Using punches helped me create this card in a snap and it just screams summer to me.  (Did you notice that the same stamp can be a lemon, pink lemon, lime or an orange?  How versatile!)
Happy Summer Birthday:
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, A Little Birthday Cheer
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Other: 1 ¼” Circle Punch, 1 3/8” Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I'm doing a workshop in a few weeks and we're going to be making these cute little gift card holders.  I used the Scallop Trim border punch from this year's Sale-A-Bration that will now be available in the new catalog (out July 1).

Tart and Tangy Gift Card:

I hope you're staying cool this summer and doing some crafting indoors by the A/C!  Thanks for stopping by.
