Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge

With all the summer heat going on here in the US, we have no doubt that summer is in full swing. I  hope that many of you have finally found some relief from this heat and those who had lost power finally got it back.

This week challenge is Sweet SummerTime at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  Laura just added a bunch of great new stamps from Whimsy, Your Next Stamp, Wild Rose and Crafty Sentiments so be sure to check our the shop and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift card.

I pulled out one of my favorite artist, Elisabeth Bell Stamp, SunKissed, from the Little Cottage Cuties line for Whimsy Stamps.  I actually created the quilted pattern myself. This was froma stack of papers I got by DCWV at AC Moore and just alternated the blue and yellows.  I used my Spectrum Noirs to color the image as well as my Spellbinders to cut it out.  The pearls I have had in my stash forever so I really wanted to make sure I used it and the doily is from my stash too.   The butterfly is from a chipboard piece I had that I just inked to match and the faux stitching is from a stamp set by CTMH.

I will be entering this one in:
