Icy Treats

Hey there. This is a common greeting for me. So with that in mind I decided to create a card with that phrase. I had a piece of water color paper on my desk that I had played with my Arteza Real Brush pens making a rainbow. I hadn't had any bright ideas for it till I saw the challenge over on Less is More about using the "Bits and Pieces" on your desk. All three of these cards were made with the one piece of rainbow water color paper.
My card used a bold alphabet die set.  I die cut the letters from a strip of the rainbow, then cut three more sets of letters from white card stock gluing and stacking them together. I then covered them with Tonic Crystal Glaze. After they were dry I set them back in the holes. I stamped the "there" from a Honey Bee set on a scrap of white card stock and mounted it to the rainbow piece with foam tape. I then mounted it all to a 110 lbs white card base. Next up...Papertrey Ink Inspiration photo.

My next card is for the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop. We were to use the inspiration photo to create a card. I used that water color rainbow again to cut my popsicles from.  The die is from one of my favorite stamp companies The Stamp Market. I started with a card base cut from Papertrey's white card stock. I blended the yellow ink from Stampin Up! to create the sunshine in the top left corner. Then used the popsicles mounted with foam tape to the card front. Greeting is from Papertrey stamped in Versafine black ink.

The final card uses the rainbow water color paper that I had cut the popsicles out of. I stamped the sticks in kraft ink and then used some Pearl-Ex to create the frosty popsicles on a scrap of white card stock. I stamped the greeting from the same FREE set I received with my order from The Stamp Market. Love that company!! The greeting was stamped in Versafine black ink and then mounted it to the Papertrey Kraft card with foam tape.

  4. What a brilliant selection of cards from your scrap of water coloured paper Sue! They are all so happy and vibrant. Love that hey there phrase and the crystal glaze looks super with the camouflage technique. Super thrifty use of the 'innies' and 'outies' of the lollipops strip. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More xx

  12. Wonderful cards and takes on the inspiration photo! I say hey there a lot, too, or just hey as a greeting. But my co-worker kept replying with “hey is for horses,” so to him I say “hello”. 😉
