LAD Summer Mix Preview

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a preview of the new Lizzie Anne Designs Summer Mix Set, called Summertime Celebration. All the details about the Mix Club can be found here on the LAD website. This is one of my favorite Mix sets so far! There are some really fun images included - and its an extra large set, too!

I'll share a few cards today and then some more later on. The hibiscus flower is one of my favorite stamps from the set.

I stamped the flowers in a few tropical colors and cut them out, adhering them to the side of my card. Sort of reminds me of a lei!

I stamped the sentiment and then stitched it to my card base. The flower centers are all glittered up, too? Can you see them?

My second hibiscus card uses a technique my friend Julia Aston shared, called ghosting.

You start by stamping your image in white pigment ink and letting it dry. Then, you add ink on top of it. It is sort of like emboss resist, but not so intense. It has a neat look, huh? It almost look bleached.

My last card uses the super cute banana split image from the set. I could go for a banana split right now.

I stamped the image and then colored it in with Copics. I added some Glossy Accents to the chocolate syrup... looks yummy!

The papers are Emma's Shoppe from Crate Paper - a sweet sugary perfect fit!

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you like what you've seen so far! Head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs Blog to see what the other DT members have created for the Summer Mix and to find out how you can get your own set!
