Simon Says Stamp: Wednesday Challenge...Smile =)

Hello Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I am popping in with a quick post. I have been on vacation, so I am trying to get back into the crafty swing of things. A little help from Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge, Food and/or Drink, is helping me to refine my smooshing technique and play with a few of my favorite stamps and dies.

I love the bold colors in this card. Simple Stories, Summer Vibe, pattern paper if fantastic! The stamp and die combination is from Taylored Expressions' Summer Love. The Smile die cut is from TE's Pockets & Pages Fab Frame. I love being able to get extra mileage from dies. And turning the Smile into a title, instead of a frame, is perfect. A few enamel dots and twine complete my card. Thank you for stopping by.

Card Supplies:

Paper: TE (Sugar Cube), Canson (watercolor paper), Simple Stories (Summer Vibe), Carta Bella (Soak Up The Sun)

  3. That inky background is all sorts of yummy in its own right and then you add the scrumptiously colored ice cream cone on top of it - Such a great design!
