Hi, Dare 2B Artzy Fans!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram!  I am celebrating the arrival of summer by sprucing up my planner with some colorful flip flops, a cool glass of lemonade, a relaxing Adirondack chair, and a flower the color of sunshine!

I just couldn’t resist adding these adorable flip flops to my planner as flip flops are my footwear of choice for the entire summer!!!

After coloring the images with Copic markers, I added some Wink of Stella and Sakura Glaze pen accents to the straps.  Don’t those colors and sparkle just transport you to a happy place?

The Adirondack chair, flip flops, lemonade, and the “happy summer” and “hello sunshine” sentiments can all be found in the Flip Flops stamp set.  This set has coordinating dies which make it so easy to use the images on a variety of projects from cards to planners to mixed media!  The flower is from the newly released Playful Posies set.  This is a layering set so you can just stamp it…no coloring required!

I used the Happy 4th of July sentiment from the Patriotic Owl stamp set. I have put this stamp set to good use this year!  You might recognize the sentiments from this previous cascading card.

I hope you are having a fabulous summer!  I am headed back to my craft area to make another card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Blog Hop.  Don’t forget to enter your coffee, tea, or hot chocolate themed projects for a chance to win some great prizes like those from Super Sponsor ***Dare 2B Artzy!***

Happy stamping! Melody
