My Thoughts Exactly Summer Collection

Hello Everyone.
I thought I would see what I could do with the Hello Summer Stamp set and was inspired to make a COLLECTION, like a fashion show, but for cards. I used the same colors and mood to create these 2 looks:

I am a big fan of buttons...

I used the same Tim Holtz flower dies for both cards.

In the above photo, I used the ball as centers for the die cut flowers. It is a perfect 1 inch! Genius Alyssa! The balls are stamped in versa mark and then clear embossed. I also just used the hello from the sentiment to create a more generic card. Easy Peasy!

playing around with lighting and setting for my photos. Although both of these were taken in natural light, they do not look very natural...experimenting again, my scientist husband will be proud!


  1. The balls as the flower centers is so clever! The first card has such a cool color combination with the mix of buttons. Great cards, Wida, and great pics, too ;)

  2. Beautiful cards Wida! I think the lighting and background is great on both pics! I LOVE the balls as flower centers! Well done!!!!

  3. Gorgeous cards, Wida!! I love how you use the same TH flower die to create two totally different looks! AWESOME!

  4. both cards are beautiful. love the beach ball as flower center.

  5. Wonderful cards! I love that you made two very different cards both with the same flower. Sweet buttons on the first card, great colors!

  6. Gorgeous cards! Love the die cut flowers on both. I think your photography looks fabulous, too!

  7. Love them both! The visual triangle those blooms create are fabulous!

  8. Great cards! I'm really digging that tone-on-tone one:) I totally did not see beach balls until you mentioned it!

    I think the pics look great! I need to learn how to use my camera:(
