May SOTM Blog Hop - Classic Summer Bash

Welcome to May's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Classic Summer Bash" - a set of 25 stamps. This stamp set is filled with everything to do with lemons, lemonade and summer themed images! Hence the title - Classic Summer Bash! The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Shelly Mendenhall's blog

If you get lost, a list of all participating bloggers can be found on
 Melinda Everitt's blog.

The stamp set looks like this.

I wanted to do something a little different with this stamp set... 
I chose some of the smaller images and used them to create a background for my card. Some were stamped in the colours that fit the images and other images had to be coloured. I just stamped them right across the paper in a line. 
The Documented Complements include 2 sheets of Kraft shapes and that was perfect as I wanted a Kraft background. I backed the sunglasses with Glacier cardstock. Since we have had a VERY LONG winter (and there is still a little bit of snow on the ground as I write this on April 27), I am SO ready for warmer weather!
