Well, another month has passed! Time to receive lots of craftin’ goodness from me in a couple of posts for the day. This one is the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.
Our theme this month is S U M M E R !
For me, that’s a little hard! Our summers here are humid scorchers! And, unless you live in Texas, you’ll never quite understand just what I mean….
I created two cards that are bright and fun and remind me of summer. This first one goes without sayin’ –
Remember, I said scorcher! Gold foil Sunburst with the new Layering Circles Framelits. It’s a no-stampin’ card because, well, there’s no stampin’ here. The sentiment is from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (currently, my favorite).
When I cut this, I placed the foil good side out to get a reversed burst here. I also glued down just the center and used Dimensionals on the edges for depth. Hard to photograph, but, it’s there.
Then, the other thing that comes to mind for summer is beautiful flowers. The real kind that require little hydration! So I used the same Sunshine Wishes Thinlits to create this –
I also used foil, silver this time to create the flower. I cut two out and over lapped them. I adhered then to Melon Mambo card stock and cut them out. It makes for a stunning flower using the same Layering Circles Framelits for the center. It’s simple. Bold. Elegant. Fun.
So. Two gorgeous, clean and simple cards for the ‘summer’!!!
This is a ‘blog hop’, which means you ‘hop’ from one blog to another. Everyone has created some fabulous projects. Please leave me some good ‘card-carma’ in the form of a comment. Then, hop on over to see what the others have created.

I love your cards Libby! The foil really makes them pop. I just love the black wording and the pink and silver flower!

Lovely scorching hot card! Thanks for sharing! I could use a little of that heat as I sit here at the beach shivering. Enjoy you extreme Texas Summer!

Hi Libby, oh the gold foil accents are perfect for summer. I bought that sun rays die too, but haven’t yet used it! I might have to CASE your simple idea. Happy 4th! Crystal
Libby, I feel you when you talk about humidity – it gets so awful here on the West Coast, too. But, we need the sun, and enjoy it while it’s here (otherwise, our other weather is rain – lots of it!) Thanks for sharing your great projects.
I love clean and simple cards! You did a great job with that. I still haven’t got that Sunburst thinlet….i really do need it though:) Great cards!
