Summer Paradise Cards

Hey crafty cardmakers, I'm back with my last post, for scrapbookingstore.com.  I'm so happy that they invited me to create with their July Scrapbook Kit of the Month.  It has truly been a pleasure!  I've designed this cute flamingo card that features the Echo Park Paper "Summer Fun" collection, featured in this month's kit.

I've also incorporated the chipboard embellishments which are for upgraded subscribers.  Doesn't it look perfect as the sun behind my cloud?

Let me mention again, what's included in this kit.  Of course, as I mentioned above, the Echo Park Paper Summer Fun collection with 12x12 sticker elements are included in the kit.  These double sided papers offer so much versatility, which is always a bonus when creating cards.  That's right, this is a scrapbook kit but it's use is not limited to scrapbooking.  Obviously, since I'm creating cards, right?  





For those of you who are scrapbookers, hopefully these samples will help you "spread your wings" and branch out with other uses for these amazing papers as well.  I hope I've given you some good ideas, at the very least!





Lastly, I made a bonus card which features mostly the Studio Calico journaling cards with some Echo Park stickers mixed in.  I even made my own watermelon slice!  Just use circle punches of varying sizes or nesting circle dies on the light green and red journaling cards, then cut in half.  There was a fabulous journaling card that resembled watermelon seeds as well, so I cut a half circle and colored it light pink with a waterbrush and water based brush marker.  Just stack your tri-layered elements to create that watermelon slice.  This would also make a great element for use on a scrapbook layout.  





Remember, for customers who chose to double their stickers and embellishments, this month's kit comes with more stickers, chipboard shapes and journaling cards from American Crafts and Studio Calico.

That's it for me!  I hope you're already following me on social media but if not, the links are below.  I'm always happy to make new friends!  Pop in and say hi!  Have a great summer and stay crafty!  

Terri

Christmas Card Challenge at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

It's time for the July/August Card Challenge at Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.  This month's theme is Christmas in July!  Break out those Christmas stamps and get busy.  You've got plenty of time to link up your newly created projects.  Plus, there's prizes up for grabs!  


(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)





For my project, I'm featuring the Tree by Olesya stamp, along with the Grinch sentiment.  You'll find product links at the end of this post.  I actually broke up my sentiment and masked some of the wording, stamping with my Misti, so it would fit better with the dimensions of my card.  I also took a brush marker and outlined the left side of each word, to make it pop a bit more.




To embellish my tree, I watercolored it using a green brush marker, then added white paint dots all over.  Once dry, I dropped on dots of clear glue and crystal glitter.  Right next to my tree, is a strip of washi tape with a button and string embellishment.  All my adhesives are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, including the foam star on top of my tree, that was silver foiled.  




You have until August 14th to link up to the Christmas Challenge and the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at the Crackerbox & Suzy stamps store online!  Be sure and follow the challenge guidelines.  No back links allowed!






Don't forget, food and drinks stamps are on sale this month.  You can shop that selection, here.  See you next time!  Terri
