Today's Featured Stamp Set today is

"Island Life"

Welcome to day three of our June blog hop. We have another Fantastic stamp set to show you today. This stamp set is called "Island Life". The versatility of this stamp set is amazing. 

For my first card today I created something a little different. I used an every day legal envelope for the base of my card instead of card stock. 

Here is the back

This is the side flap

Here is the insert

 The front of the card

For my second card I made a little more CAS and with a patriotic theme, since yesterday was the first day of summer. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Thank you for stopping and commenting. I hope you come back soon. Remember to comment so that you can qualify to win this or one of the other stamp sets we are showcasing this week. Be sure to come back tomorrow for the last installment of our June releases, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Nice cards, Debbie. That first one was very clever.

Good job with the legal envie and it came out so cool with the torn edges. The second card is such a pretty scene and like that sun in the corner....really says hot summer, which I love.

Katie said...

Like the nautical feel of these cards. I'm now following your blog. I like all things Lighthouse. Just entered the Summer challenge again since I so want to win the Lighthouse stamp set being offered to challenge winner. Have visited several Lighthouses. One time when visiting the Lighthouse on TyBee Island off the coast of Savannah, GA the power went out while we were walking up the steps of the lighthouse. They did not charge us admission since they had no power to run our credit card thru and considered the no power a free day. had jury duty summons yesterday. Was not selected so will be another 3 yrs before I'm summoned again. When I got home I finsihed up a couple Patriotic cards. Thanks for your response on stamps for Jul. I ordered the Christmas Cardinal stamp set this morn. Am making Christmas cards for the swap and when the Christmas Cardinal stamp set arrives I'll decide which to use for swap.

Wow Debbie--the first card is amazing! And your second card is very pretty! Your sewing cards from yesterday are really cute also! I especially like the one that says "sew many stamps...."! Sorry that I didn't get to comment yesterday, but my BFF's dog is very sick and she was really upset last night. TFS
