Barefoot Summer Day 2





Barefoot Summer, doesn't just that name make you smile? Part of it is because I loving walking around barefoot in my yard... okay now guys save your Tennessee jokes :). I do wear shoes everywhere else. But let's get back to the set. Today the Design Team and I are going to be featuring cards using this beautiful tree from the set.

I really wanted to let the tree be the focal point, and I think it looks amazing paper pieced. The flowers in the tree are actually a separate stamp that you can use in several different ways. As always with our stamps they are interactive and can be used for several purposes!
Dana rocked her Copic markers on this tree. I'm so jealous of these girls and their amazing work with their markers. When Dana used these different colors for the tree I realized it will make a great tree for the fall as well. And again this set has so many pieces that work together!

Aren't those scallops gorgeous. Paulina shows another great look for the tree. It can totally stand alone and make a statement. I love how she added rhinestones to the tree!
Alice sure knows how to rock a scene! And she's given you a few previews into some of the other stamps in the set. Alice has also treated us to a quick tutorial on that awesome yellow background she's created.




Didn't these ladies rock that tree stamp? Check out their blogs for more details on their cards. And don't forget to check out Michelle Philippi's blog for her cards featuring the new May Arts ribbon!

So what is your favorite tree? I love magnolia trees. So, pretty if only they could grow faster. Leave a comment on today's post for a chance to win this set. I'll be drawing the winner later this week!

Tomorrow we've got some more cards from Barefoot Summer as well as another tutorial!
June 4: It's all about ribbon and a special ribbon tutorial from Michelle Philippi!
June 5: Design Team cards from the new set and two special video tutorials for everyone.
June 6: Release of the new set!
