Simply Sunday Challenge: Summer-time Fun

This Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky is all about Summer-time Fun.
You have until July 9th to enter so head on over and link up your project.
This card was so much fun to make and I didn't even use my cutter.
I used the Splashtastic Summer stamp set from K. Andrew Designs to stamp the sentiment and punch it out with a scalloped oval Fiskars punch. The grass is a Fiskars border punch. I stamped the flowers using PK-229 Funny Flowers from Peachy Keen Stamps. I stamped the center flower on printer paper and cut it out. I then stamped it on my cardstock. I used repositionable tape on the back of the printer paper flower and covered up the one I stamped on my cardstock. Then I stamped the flowers on each side of the middle one and took off the printer paper so the two outside flowers look like they are behind the middle one without the messy overlap of lines. I think they call this "masking". It is not a new technique but it sure is a COOL technique. I colored the flowers in with my Memory pencils and chomped the corners of the card. Sure feels like summer to me. :-)
