Summery Cards using Flora & Fauna | July DT Project

Hi crafty friends!

Today I’m sharing my July Papercraft Business DT project featuring Flora and Fauna stamps. This was a fun project for me because the previous few weeks prior to creating this card, I felt like I was in a creative slump and I’ve only been doing bits and pieces of crafting or creating in between other tasks. June was a weird month for me at work and I definitely think it affected my creativity.

Are you interested in joining us this month for the Papercraft Business Challenge? The theme is anything goes and there’s a chance for a prize! Come check it out and the other awesome DT ladies HERE!

But with this project, I was having fun and just experimenting. I pulled out my Flora and Fauna stamps in Texture, Texture Two, Texture Three, and Texture Four with my bright Lawn Fawn dye inks. I didn’t have a clear idea of what I was going to do, but I was picturing stamping out abstract and fun, summery prints for a couple friendship cards.

It’s been HOT in Texas with temperatures consistently in the mid to high 90s. We haven’t spent too much time outdoors because of the hot weather, so creating these cards had me craving time to sit by the pool, sipping on a lemonade, and reading/napping. Ha!

The cards were very simple to create on a single layer, A2 sized card base. I mixed and matched the Flora and Fauna stamps into abstract and ‘random’ patterns.

Hope you are having fun this summer and also creating. Until next time….!

  1. Hi Ashley,
    I know what it’s like to be in a creative slump. This happened to me a while ago for quite some time, 18 months! I think it definitely helps with just getting your stamps out & having a play, sometimes without an end result in mind. I’m glad you got your mojo back.

    I love how the stamps have added texture to your friendship cards. They look great with those beautiful colours that you chose. I haven’t yet created a stamped background, but something I keep meaning to try. Thank you for the prompt to remember to get my stamps out & give it a go 🙂
