Today I am here with the Creating Kindness Design Team and this month’s theme is Summertime Fun, our guest designer is fellow Canadian Leena Girsa
When I think of summer time fun, cool treats come to mind because there is nothing like something cool and yummy to quench your thirst, and maybe satisfy that little sugar craving….
The fun Sweet Ice Cream stamp set came to mind right away when I started thinking about what I wanted to use for my card
I used some Versamark and Clear Embossing powder on my popsicles to really bring out the colour, I love how vibrant they turned out!
As my card is goin to a sweet friend for her birthday, I thought why not do a fun coordinating treat to go with it
I had to pull out one of the Mini Jam Jars, they are so much fun to decorate!
I had so much fun creating for this month’s theme!
Here is the video:
Here are the measurements and products I used:
Thick Basic White cardstock base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″
Polished Pink cardstock – 2 pieces that measure 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
Basic White cardstock – one piece that measures 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card, one piece that measures 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ to die cut out the frame from the Scalloped Contours Dies, one piece that measures 3-3/8″ x 4-11/16″ – I used Bermuda Bay and my Blending Brushes on this layer, plus scraps to die cut out 3 clouds from the Give It A Whirl Dies and to stamp the 2 popsicles on. My sentiment is from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set
My ink colours are: Bermuda Bay, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Crumb Cake, Versamark
I used Clear Embossing Powder on the popsicles
I used the Layering Circle dies on my jar, Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon and some white Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack
My cardstock is Polished Pink for the scalloped circle and three little hearts, Basic White for the die cut circle (I used Bermuda Bay on this with my Blending Brush) and then the middle sized stitched heart from the Give It A Whirl Dies, my sentiment is from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set
