Summer beverages “hit the spot.”
My inspiration for today’s card was Claire’s challenge for the Paper Players Design Team.
I found the cute, little “summer beverage” in the Colorful Seasons stamp set, which I stamped in four colors, and cut with its coordinating die from the Seasonal Layers Die Set. I took the colors from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper on the right side of the card: Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Granny Apple Green.
The green stripe is really Old Olive, but I thought Granny Apple Green would taste better.
The sentiment, “Life is a beautiful thing,” also from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, was stamped in Memento Black Ink.
I couldn’t pass up using one of my favorite die-cuts, the Adirondack chair, so I added it in Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Besides, you need to sit down to consume all of those beverages!

When I think of unicorns, I think of rainbows.
The rainbow was easy to create, especially since I used the idea from a previous project. Remember my birds from earlier this month?

I even used the same ink colors, which are in my Product List. Changing it up to fit the shape of the unicorn, I stamped the Geared Up Garage, “blotch” stamp, in a diagonal direction.
Next, I stamped the unicorn from Stampin’ Up’s new stamp set, Leave A Little Sparkle, in Memento Black Ink.
I love the realistic drawing of the unicorn, but I must tell you, I took some teasing from my family when describing the stamp set to them. I compared the “realistic” unicorns to the “cartoon” dinosaurs in the Dino Days stamp set.
So, dinosaurs are real and unicorns aren’t? I guess you just have to “believe,” and that’s the sentiment I chose.
To highlight the rainbow colors, I used Basic Black for the card base. And, with a stamp set title of Leave A Little Sparkle, I had to add some Iridescent Sequins.

Have an “unbelievably” good day!
I just received Stampin’ Up’s new Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Paper, and I couldn’t wait to put it to use. I ended up with a “two-for-one;” two cards from one section of Designer Series Paper.
Card Number One:
Card Number Two:
I began with card number two, by cutting a section from the Laser-Cut DSP, and snipping the pattern free from the frame.
Next, I held the floral pattern (stencil) in place on Whisper White Cardstock, and used Sponge Daubers to apply ink to the flowers and greenery in two colors: Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green.
“Thanks” was cut using a Well Written Die from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, colored with a Sponged Dauber and Night of Navy Ink.
My colors were inspired by Global Design Project.
I chose Granny Apple Green for the card base, layered with Whisper White Cardstock that I embossed with the new, Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.
My number one, Laser-Cut card, developed from the ink colored, “stencil.” I placed it on the same Eyelet Lace embossed layer, on a Granny Apple Green card base.
“Friend” is also from the Well Written Die Set, and colored in Night of Navy Ink.
I’ve always liked the look of stenciling, and it’s a fun way to use this Laser-Cut DSP. Getting two cards from the process is a bonus!
