June Stamp of the Month - Ice Cream Dream

Image
Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Ice Cream Dreama set of 7 stamps. If you have come here from Cat Nowak's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.




How fun it is to have an Ice Cream themed stamp for June!  I couldn't WAIT to create with this set.  This stamp set was calling out for ShinHan Touch Twin Markers to me.   I paired them with the fun Confetti paper for my card.



I added Purple Shimmer Trim and pink Flamingo Dots to accent the card.  Also, to make it even more fun I added Liquid Glass to the windows of the Ice Cream Truck!  



If you haven't had a chance to try out our new ShinHan Touch Twin markers, you can do so in my next Technique Tuesday Class!  Be sure to check out my Upcoming Events Calendar tab for all the information on my next class!

Last Chance for Your Own Taste of Summer!

Image
National Scrapbooking Month is winding down and soon we will be entering the summer month of June.   Our Taste of Summer has been a huge success! If you have followed my blog during the month of May, I have shared everything that I created with the Taste of Summer paper pack and the Taste of Summer stamp set.   If you missed any of these posts, just search Taste of Summer or #CTMHTOS in my blog search box and it will bring up all of my posts using this paper pack!

By the way..... everything you see in this collage was created with ONE Taste of Summer Paper pack!!  I added 2 sheets of Pear cardstock, 13 sheets of White Daisy Cardstock (8 were base pages for layouts, 2 sheets for my 4x4 cards and 2 sheets for stamped Accents).  For the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards, I used White Daisy Bulk Cards and Envelopes.

























Embellishments I used with this collection: Pink Glitter Gems - Z1807 Purple Glitter Gems  - Z1936 Sparkles Black & Grey Assortment - Z1754 White Shimmer Trim - Z3024 Thistle Diagonal St…

Taste of Summer - Finding the Words

Image
I created these 8 4x4 cards for my mom for Mother's Day.   My mom loves to send little notes of Thanks, Thinking of You and more.  She always hand writes a little note of encouragement or expresses her appreciation for something.   I love it that she still does this rather taking to the internet to send an email or her phone to send a text.   (Something WE ALL do!).    I thought she would love to have a set of cards created with this cheerful Taste of Summer paper.



I used the stamp set Finding the Words for these cards.   I also used silver sequins coloring some of them with my ShinHan Touch Twin markers.  I love how you can match to any color you need!

Taste of Summer - For Someone Special

Image
Here is anpther Taste of Summer sampling!  Today's card features the strawberry and orange print from our exclusive Taste of Summer paper pack!  

This is the 3rd card I created using the Heartstrings WOTG Cardmaking kit pattern.  I added started with the strawberry and orange print paper as my base instead of leaving it plain as directed in the Heartstrings pattern.  See the pattern I used below.


Once again, I used the Finding the Words stamp set along with the strawberry images from the Taste of Summer stamp set.  I accented the card with White Shimmer Trim and Pink Glitter Gems.

In addition to the Taste of Summer stamp, I also used the Documenting Moments stamp set.  I also used some White Shimmer Trim and Black Sparkles for accents.

This is the 2nd card that I created using one of the patterns from the Heartstrings Cardmaking WOTG kit instructions.

Taste of Summer - Simply Sublime

Image
Ready for another Taste of Summer sampling?   Today I'm sharing a layout.  This layout started out from a sketch from one of the Make It From the Heart sketches but totally evolved into a sketch all it's own.  I had cut the papers which consisted of 3 pennant pieces that ran vertical across the pages.  I  left it laying unattached for a few days - never adding the adhesive because there was something about it I just didn't like.  I couldn't put my finger on it.   As I was getting ready for my Album In A Day workshop, I scooped it all up and put it back in the bag to take along with me thinking I'd finish it during the workshop.  When I pulled it out to work on it, I decided to change it up and this is what I ended up with.  I like it much better than my original layout.


To stamp my limes, I used 2nd generation stamping with Pear ink and then I rolled the edges in pear again to give it a darker tone around the rind.  My strawberries were stamped in Cotton Candy ink…

Taste of Summer - Thanks so Very Much

Image
Here is today's Taste of Summer sampling!

This card was very simple and it is one of THREE cards that I created using the Heartstrings Cardmaking WOTG instructions! I will be sharing the other two cards in the near future.  It is a good idea to keep your instruction brochures you get with the Workshop On the Go Kits!  You can use them over and over with other papers!



In addition to the Taste of Summer stamp set (lemons) I also used Finding the Words (D1646) a great stamp with lots of sentiments.  I added Purple Glitter Gems (Z1936) for accent.

Taste of Summer - Well, Hello!

Quick post today to share another card I created with the Taste of Summer Paper!  I created 4 layouts with this paper and have alot of scraps so I've been creating cards to!  This is my 4th card so far!

I found the sketch for this card on Freshly Made Sketches.  I had the perfect stamp set to use so I created this one quickly to make the Freshly Made challenge deadline which is today!


In addition to the Taste of Summer stamp (for the the lemons) I used the Tagged With Love stamp set.  This is a Hostess Only stamp that hostess can choose with their Rewards!  This stamp coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.   I used Thistle ink on the tag.  For the lemons, I first stamped in Canary Ink and then rolled the stamp in Honey.   I used Purple Glitter Gems, and Thistle Extra Thick Twine for embellishing.
