OSAT Blog Hop - Summer Lovin'!

 Hello and welcome to the June One Stamp At A Time Summer Lovin' Blog Hop! If you have already been hopping you should have landed here from my friend Megan Thompson's blog!  Megan always has awesome stuff so if you started with me, make sure you hop all the way through and check her blog out! 

What do you think of when you think of Summer??  Well living in Tennessee, I think of heat and trying to find a way to cool off.  What better way than Ice Cream, right?? 

I was super happy that the awesome Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set was carried over into the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!  I just love this set!  Do you know what else reminds me of Summer?  These awesome bright colors in the Playful Palette Suite!  I just adore the Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum paired with the black!  

I love the matching Playful Palette Washi Tape too!  In my card, I attached the Washi Tape to Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut it allowing a thin border.   The ice cream cone was stamped tone-on-tone with Peekaboo Peach.. I really think it looks so much like an actual cone! The ice cream scoops were punched with the Tree Builder Punch out of Very Vanilla (bottom scoop) and Playful Palette DSP for the two top scoops.  The sentiment was stamped using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set with Archival Black Ink onto Peekaboo Peach Cardstock.  I used my Duet Banner Punch to punch out the sentiment layer as well as a Black banner layer behind the sentiment.  I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins from their Spring Mix to finish off the front.

The sentiment stamped on the inside is also from the Sprinkles of Life stamp Set.  I added a couple of pieces of Washi Tape on the inside to match the outside.

My Post-It-Note holder is an Easel card base in Sweet Sugarplum. If you've never made an Easel card, click here to an earlier blog post where I have instructions and pictures.  I used the same three Washi Tape Strips as my card front.  The Live Laugh Love sentiment is from the Layering Love Stamp Set.  I cut it out the a Mama Elephant Die Set for the scallop edge.  I can't wait to get my hands on the new Layering Circle Framelits but unfortunately I don't have them yet :(

I hope you've enjoyed my card and project and are ready to head off to check out the Fabulous blog of Stampin' Up! Artisan Marisa Gunn!  Just click the next button and you'll be there!
