Sizzling Summer

I cannot believe that Summer is as good as done...where on earth DID the year go?

Hopefully you all managed to take quite a few pictures over the summer and have now ample material to create up a storm. I have to admit I have been a little "rusty" when it came to creating over the past weeks but the new lines fromUPSY DAISY DESIGNS sure make it easy to get back into the swing of things.

For this card I have teamed my favourite papers from the WALK IN THE PARK line and rubs ons with the SPELLBINDER'S  Nestabilities again.

#WP015. Majestic
#WP013. Gorgeous
#MT2-016. William
#UDD0040. Right On Track
#UDD185. Baby Love
#UDD208. Chic Bebe

I love how perfectly the UDD journaling stamp fits the nestie - as if they were made for each

My favourite stamp set right now is the >> CHIC BEBE <<. The Chandelier has to be my most used embellishment right now.

Quick tip: Stamp this image a few times in different colours and on different cardstock and then use a circle punch to create little chandelier spots. I keep a stack of them on my desk and if I need a quick "fix", I place the spot on a pop dot and have the perfect embellishment.
I also do the same with the journaling stamp and the nestabilities - a stack of small journaling spots are always in reach.
