You're Cool, Sweet - #GDP076

Welcome back crafters :)

It's officially the end of summer here in Australia.
#Cooltreats #Summertimefun #Funinthesun #Handmadecards #KOCreationscards #Australianmade #Youresweet #Yourecool #Happybirthday

Today's blog is all about Summer and the Cool Treats bundle and embellishments set.

I have based my 4 projects around this weeks creative challenge from Global Designs Project #GDP076 CASE the designer...Kylie Bertucci

CASE means Copy And Selective Edit.

And here they are.

You're Cool, You're Sweet

I absolutely love this set...It's fun and a great set for kids and adults alike. 
My designs have only just skimmed the surface of what you can create using this fabulously funky set. 
I have taken pictures of each card separately with a shot of the inside beside it.

You're Cool

For this set I started with an A4 sheet of Whisper white cut in half length ways. 
I stamped all over the 2 half sheets with the icy poles and ice cream images making sure I left enough room for the poles and cones.
The ink colours used were Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder with Crumb Cake for the poles and cones.
As the stamps are two step stamps each image has been stamped using the same colour. By using the same colour, the second stamp adds depth to the image.

You're Sweet

The card stock base for each card is Peekaboo Peach with the trim either being Bermuda Bay or Pool Party
I tried out the sprinkles embellishments for first two of my cards above. I looked at them for nearly 5 minutes as I was not sure which was the best way to apply them!! I ended up using my multipurpose glue (Tombow) It worked, but it didn't give the desired effect I was looking for. 
So, I think I will try the Heat and Stick powder in the future and see if that helps.
I added Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine to 3 of my cards and Peekeboo Peach ruched ribbon to one. 

You're Sweet and Cool

For the second set I decided to add some words into the mix of cones and Popsicles, but this time I used the sprinkles stamp and added colour with my Stampin' Write Markers, making sure to match the colours with the inks.
I made each of these last 2 different by adding differing sentiment styles. Above I used the banner/ribbon design and below I used both a tab and a framelit to convey my messages.

Happiest Birthday

  For my very last project I though a Birthday Card would be fun.
And to make it a little different I added a pullout tag to the side. 
It does sit in quite nicely behind the focal strip..Don't you think!?!
For 3 of my cards I used the Layering circles framelits and another definite fave the Stitched shapes framelits...I find this framelit set so very versatile and it helps to give my projects an extra something without creating too much extra work.
