Welcome to the

you can always go back to the Create with TLC Blog,

Now let's show you what I came up with:
When i started making mycards, I had a slight
printer problem.....everything came out sepia!
Needed to order new color refills, but that took time,
so as this is a Vintage Summer hop, I thought it
was just a fun coincidence and I decided to use them
for my cards.
This card is build up in layers. I was thinking
of the old fashioned photograpers, where one
poses for a picture and then it is behind
a cut out shape.
Here is the colored image for you to grab and make your own
cards with. Just click with your right mouse button
and save it to your computer.
I cut out the shape from kraft colored cardstock
and embossed it with a wavy shape, that I colored
with vintage photo distress ink. The sentiment is also from
Create with TLC and you find it as another freebie below.
So I decorated the card with paper flowers, a ribbon
and some cut out shells. I colored the shells with
For my second card I wanted a little more color and
for this I used a few stencils and distress oxides inks.
The sun is a die and the sentiment is one I found in my
Create with TLC sentiment folder and perfect for this card.
At the bottom of the card some raffia is tied around
and a flower added. Love the powder pink color for
Yeah!! my cartidges arrived yesterday and now I can print the
Summer image in color. I decided to make some ATC's with it.
So I printed the image small size (that is the advantage of
digital images, you can use them anysize!)
This is card 1:
atc's are 3,5x2,5 inch, so it is small
even though you do not see this on the picture.
The sentiment is another oldie from
Create with TLC, the seahorse is by
For card 2 I used the shell stamp by
Michael Strong and added cute little
sticky pearls. I cut up the sentiment
for a more decorative look.
Here - on card 3 - I used the complete sentiment.
Blue baker's twine because of the sea
and the fish stamp from Michael Strong
is stamped on shrinky dink, so now it
is small enough for the atc.
Well enough ideas I think for you to use the
great image and sentiments from Create with TLC.
