Sweet Smells of Summer- Stamp Simply blog hop

 Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Sweet Smells of Summer blog hop!  This month's theme is create something that represents the smells of summer -think BBQ, picnics, camping, beaches, anywhere it takes you.

Well, for me it was easy!  It's no secret that I LOVE roses and summertime means the roses are in BLOOM!  I was born in June, so the rose is my birth flower, but that is only a small part of it.  I love roses for their beauty, variety of colors and shapes AND the smell!  They truly are my favorite flower.  So, my cards today all use the amazing rose image from the Clearly Wordsworth set, Rose Border.  I changed up each card with the colors, pattern paper, ribbons and sentiment -of course, all supplies can all be found at the Stamp Simply Ribbon store.

This card uses red roses, Thrift Shop paper, and 1.5" red striped grosgrain ribbon:

This card uses purple roses, Lovely Lilac paper, and 3/8" green striped grosgrain ribbon:

This card uses yellow roses, Thrift Shop paper, and teal twill ribbon:

Sharon has offered up an amazing prize for one lucky commenter along the way of this blog hop.  She has put together another wonderful Stamp Simply Kit, Cappella Kit (pictured at the top of this post)!  Take a look at the wonderful assortment of goodies in this kit.  A winner will be drawn Friday, 6/11 at 6pm!

  10. Beautiful cards, Michelle! I wish I had more experience with copics, but my "coloring" leaves a lot to be desired, so I tend to steer away from that particular technique, but I do so admire anyone else that has mastered the art! Thanks for sharing!

  69. Hi Michelle~

    Happy Birthday Month!

    When you were mentioning the fact that roses are your "birth flower," I was wondering if you had ever seen or smelled a lilac colored rose...and Voila! There it was!

    Your cards are so beautiful and each so very individual. They were so varied in fact, I had to go back and make sure they all used the same stamp!

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful cards!

    He IS Able,
    Traci S.
