Watermelon Week with The Stamps of Life - Day 1

Good morning!  I'm here today to share with you some cards featuring one of my favorite things about summer - watermelon!  I love it, and it turns out I love creating with watermelons just as much as I love eating it. :) In fact, I had so much fun creating with the cutest watermelon stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life that I've got projects to share with you not just today but through the rest of the week.  So let's get started!
I was immediately drawn to the size and script of the die in the Sweet Statement Set.  Obviously this set could be used for countless occasions and styles, but I decided to fully and unabashedly embrace the watermelon theme on my card. 
A little glitter cardstock, some simple embossing, and a few die cut seeds made for a quick but fun card. 
Since not a whole lot of stamping was involved in the creation of my first card, I decided to go the opposite route for my second.
Using the melon portion from The Stamps of Life's Watermelon2Stamp and the patterned rinds from the Patterns4Watermelon set, I created a simple stamped background using a variety of pinks and greens.    
Not wanting to cover up any of those fun watermelons, I simply finished the card off with the layered sentiment dies in the Watermelon Die Set.
The Stamps of Life stamps and dies were so easy and fun to use, and you can find them all HERE and HERE.  I can't wait to share the rest of my projects with you, so make sure you check back tomorrow. :) 


  1. Oh these are CUTE and ever so summer-y Lindsey! I love watermelon too, it says summer to me!

  2. Love your fun designs! Just finished a watermelon design and always think of it as a perfect summer symbol. While hubby loves it, I have to admit I don't really care for it!

  3. Cute, clever and so fun, Lindsey ... these are both positively mouthwatering! Hugs, Anita :)
