Look at all the fun papers (Echo Park), die cuts, images, and sweet sentiments Marybeth gave us to work with!! And doesn't Lindsey do such a fabulous job of photographing all these goodies for us each month?!! Most of my cards this month are EXTREMELY SIMPLE as a nod to Marybeth, who in my humble opinion is the Queen of elegant CAS cards. Lots of people can do CAS, but Marybeth makes CAS always look like perfection! It's hard to explain, but I am always blown away how BEAUTIFUL her cards are and yet still so simple! Anyway, let's get on with it shall we??!!
I used the white frame (from the tulip die cut) and backed it with some of the Echo Park DSP, and then simply added the die cut HELLO and the ice cream cone. A little bit of pink baker's twine finished off this card. Definitely feels like Summer, doesn't it?!!
This card was so simple to put together as Marybeth did all the work having stamped and die cut the flowers (Filled In Florals by Concord & 9th) and Mason jar (Just Mason Around by The Greetery).
I did a little bit of ink blending on this Cool Treats (Concord & 9th) and then added to a background that I dry embossed and added more of that fun Echo Park DSP to. I doubled up on the pop dots that I added to the center back of the ice cream treat to give it some dimension...looks good enough to eat, doesn't it?!
I think this is probably my favorite card...it's a bit larger than a normal A2 card (6" across) so that I could fit the whole sentiment A Flamingo A Day Keeps The Winter Away on the card. It was part of the DSP and I just trimmed a strip to fit along the bottom of my card and then stamped a Flamingo from PTI's Some Like It Hot stamp set. Marybeth had also added some really cool Flamingo washi tape with our kits and I added that to the inside...
Isn't that just too cute?!!
I just LOVED this Garden Poppy Stitched Frame die cut (Poppystamps) that Marybeth included in her kit, and did just a simple blended background using Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, & Wild Honey DOX inks. The sentiment is from SSS's Sketched Flowers.
And last but not least, I had to make a shaker with the lovely sequin mix Marybeth included in the kit! I ended up using a Copic on the rinds of the watermelon slices in the DSP so that it matched the color of the sequins better, but otherwise, this was another really quick and simple card.
And here they are all together! Such a FUN kit Marybeth!! I truly had a blast playing with all the goodies and cannot wait to see what all my teamies came up with using the same items! You can check out what the rest of the DT came up with and a list of all the supplies we used right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
