I Scream, You Scream…

IMG_1867

…we all scream for ice cream!  I didn’t have a diecut or any kind of ice cream stamps so I had to improvize for this card.  Sometimes that works and other times it doesn’t.  This was one of those time when what I thought in my head was actually how it turned out!  I distressed the edges of the blue with my CTMH Distresser.  I used Liquid Applique to add dimension to the ice cream and embossed and sanded the lines on the cone.  The blue button was a bit bright and took away from the ice cream cone so I added a yellow button sticker to the top to tone it down.

Products used:  KI Memories paper, Basic Grey pearls, Liquid Applique, Funky Flower stickers by Pebbles, Inc. (button sticker), unknown ribbon and button.

Alice in Wonderland

This was a fun layout and the colors worked well together.  I kinda wish I had made the rhinestone circle smaller but I like the pattern.  I used a Mini Dots All Around template by TheCraftersWorkshop.com.  I love this little template for making circles with eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, etc.  Layout was based on Scrap Sketch #120.

Products used: Making Memories paper, Reminisce paper, KI Memories flourish glitter border sticker, Alice in Wonderland Disney stickers by EK Success, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, and Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge.

Super Sketchy Sunday

I decided to just start creating so I cleaned off my desk and used the scraps that were already sitting here and this is what I came up with.  I feel like it’s missing something but I am afraid that if I try adding something I will overdo it.  I don’t normally make cards with much white space but I’m going to leave this one.

Products used: Reminisce paper, Making Memories paper, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, Making Memories ribbon charm, CTMH organdy ribbon.
