These colors remind me of Christmas, but since I live in Minne’snow’ta, I wanted to hang onto summer as long as I can, so I went with watermelon colors instead! I used one of my absolutely favorite stamp sets, One In a Melon!
I shifted the sketch a little bit and added three ovals instead of one and used most of the colors in this adorable card.
I started my card by trimming a strip of the green pattern paper and gluing on the top of the woodgrain paper. I die cut this into a stitched rectangle and then die cut it again with three stitched windows. I glued green cardstock behind the windows and adhered to black cardstock. I trimmed two stripes of black cardstock and glued between the two pattern papers.
I stamped the cute little hamsters using memento black ink and colored with copic markers. I die cut the stitched banner and heat embossed the sentiment with black. I pop dotted the banner and then the little hamsters above inside the ovals to add dimension. For my embellishments, I added some large black enamel dots.
Who doesn’t love cute little hamsters with watermelons?! The One In a Melon stamp set also has a set of birds with the watermelons, which allows me to create twice as many designs with one stamp set!
Thanks for swinging by,
