Strawberry Picking Fun with Karin

It’s the last weekend for Challenge 127 – Summertime Fun! Time to get your summery projects uploaded before Sunday, July 3 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you are working on!

Karin fondly remembers picking ripe, red strawberries with her family in the summertime! She used Berry Special to create her Summertime Fun inspiration!

These little mice look so cute picking strawberries! Maybe they will be making strawberry shortcake with the yummy berries! Karin created a beautifully simple backdrop with some ink blending and white paint splatters. She attached this smaller panel to a Fancy Lattice Backdrop to create a lovely frame. Karin used acetate to make the cardbase light and airy for summer!

Christy’s Cool Birthday at the Beach!

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We are looking forward to seeing your Summertime Fun creativity! The Challenge 127 – Summertime Fun is a 2-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, July 3 at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Summertime Fun Challenge! I started this one by stamping out the images from Pool Party and On the Beach in Jet Black Ink. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I used three panels of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock blended with Distress Oxide Ink. For the sky, I blended some Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers. For the water, I trimmed off the top with the Stitched Wave Borders and used the same two shades, plus some Mermaid Lagoon, then used the Stitched Ripple Backdrop to give it some texture. For the sand, I trimmed off the top with the Stitched Simple Wavy Borders and blended on Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. Then I splattered both the sand and see with Liquid Stardust.

For my sentiment, I colored some white cardstock with Copics in shades of orange and die cut the C and L using Finley’s ABCs. I added the pool floaties for the Os to spell out the word COOL. The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed onto Black Licorice Cardstock and cut down into strips. I glued everything down with liquid glue and finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty. If you haven’t yet entered our Summertime Fun Challenge, there is still another week to play! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!
