Take a peek at this FUN, exclusive Stamp set! J

Oh Yum...Ice Cream is one of my FAVORITE treats!!  

YES….Summer is just around the corner, and  this stamp set is PERFECT for this season!!  

Here is the card I created....

To start on this card, I paged through CTMH's Make It From Your Heart how-to-book to find the card design I liked.   This came from pattern came from our volume 2 book, pattern 26

The Blossom paper collection has the perfect colors in it's collection for it was the obvious choice for this card creation. J 

Please don't look too close at my coloring J...I'm still learning, and am looking forward to taking a alcohol marker class this coming July!  Wahoo!!! 

I do have to say, that coloring with our ShinHan alcohol markers do bring a new level of shading/coloring to the plate.  I LOVE how the colors blend together, and how you NEED to use multiple layers of ink to make the markers "work". 

So - take a peek at our ORANGE shimmer trimJ ....your right, we DON'T carry orange shimmer trim!!! J How did I get this shimmer to coordinate with my papers - ShinHan markers to the rescue!!!  Wahoo!!!  

If you know know I LOVE options!!  So, I HAD to try multiple patterns of our 5x7 embossing folders a try!!  

Check out these cards below....while they are the same card design, they each have a different embossed pattern at the bottom of the card. J

Here is the list of products I used on this card in case you'd like to create one of your own!  Happy Crafting! J
