Cool Summer



Hi there!  I'm popping in this evening with 2 cards for 4 challenges.  First up is this yummy ice cream cone for the CAS Summer Treats challenge at The Paper Players and the AAA Cards Paste and/or Stencil Technique challenge.  I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and embossing paste to create the dotty background. I really love the fun texture it adds to the card.  Then I paper pieced a retired Sweet Stamp Shop ice cream, added a sentiment and some gems and I was done!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cone & sentiment from Cool School) Sweet Stamp Shop
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Rose Red) Stampin' Up
Stencil:  The Crafter's Workshop
Gems:  Recollections


Next up is a card using the inspiration photo from Curtain Call paired with the sketch from ShowCASe Your Style.  I used a few different patterned papers, some Lifestyle Crafts Flip Flops and a sentiment from Fresh Squeezed Stamps (which, sadly, is now closed).  That's it for me tonight.  Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with a few more cards.  Have a lovely evening!

Ice cream and flip-flops. In the summer, it just doesn't get any better than that, does it?!! Two very fun cards, Jen. Love that ep in bright pink on your first card, and that cork on your second one. Really cool cards (pun intented...sorry...). Have a great weekend. Bev

O so admire how you can nail these challenges, Jen! And get them done within the time constraints. ;) These are great! Love the stencilled background and bright colours of the first; and the perfect use of cork for beach on the second.

Your ice cream card is making me hungry. I need ice cream right now. So very cute. Love your flip flop card too. It looks like they are waiting on the beach for their owner to come out of the water and reclaim them.
