Go Out Side - Its Summer

Hello All.

"Go Outside Its Summer" is the theme from our lovely host Miri over at Daring Cardmakers.

Let's celebrate spending time outside in the sunshine! What can you do outside in the summer? Show us on your cards. Swimming, having a BBQ, walking around in flipflops or barefoot, reading a book on a deck chair, eating ice-cream, lying in the park, having a picnic etc.

I picked eating ice cream.

I used the Broadway Bound Suite from Stampin Up and instead of using the colour scheme of the suite I went with the Subtles Collection.

I love the rainbow of ice creams in the pretty subtle colours.


 I started with a square of Soft Sea Foam and mat and layered some white card stock over the top for my base.

I then stamped and heat embossed in gold the "Make A" and added the die cut "Wish" also from Soft Sea Foam, my now favourite colour.  

I then cut a thin strip of white card stock and used some more soft sea foam to create a thin border.  I added another greeting again using gold embossing powder.

Next I stamped and die cut 5 little ice cream cones in blushing bride, so saffron, soft seam foam, balmy blue and highland heather from the Subtles Classic Stampin Pad Assortment. To create my little rainbow.


Such a soft and pretty card and very different from the original colour scheme of the suite.

Please stop by the Daring Cardmakers Blog to check out how the Design Team were inspired and we can't wait to see your creations.

You're Never To Old....

Good Morning.

I am sharing another card I made with the Broadway Bound Suite from Stampin up and I just love the bright colours and the dash of gold foil.

This time I used the side of the DSP with the beautiful gold foil design.

Are you a crafter like me who spends hours just looking at the DSP then when I come to make card I just want to use a bit as its just so pretty?

Well I think I managed it here and only used the Designer Series Paper on the corners.


To make my card I started with a square of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and mat and layered a square of white onto that leaving a small border.  Next I cut my DSP to fit just in the top and bottom corners.



I then used the Broadway Lights Framelits dies to cut of the marquee from Lovely Lipstick and the word Wish from Lemon Lime Twist and glued this to the centre.

I then took a strip of white card stock and stamped my sentiment from Broadway Birthday Stamp Set and used versamark ink and heat embossed in gold.  I then created a little border using some more Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.


To finish my card I die cut some of the little party hats from the DSP and added some of the die cut diamonds.
