House of Cards - July 1st

It's July 1st, so it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards

Here's this month's inspiration

Here's my card

I'm grateful to my friend Amanda, who let me borrow her stamp supplies for this card. I used Echo Park Summer Days Die/Stamp combo to stamp the popsicles with Hero Arts inks (Green Hills, Fresh Peach, Orange Soda). For the popsicles, I stamped the outlines onto corresponding colors of cardstock and then used the dies to cut the popsicles out. I stamped the popsicle sticks separately with Hero Arts Soft Brown ink and die cut them out too. The sentiment uses Sizzix's Ice Cream stamp set. I noticed that the "dot" below the exclamation point was missing (huh?) so I used a rhinestone as the "dot". I found some printed paper that had many of the colors of in the inspiration photo, to use as a background for the popsicles.

We'd love to see what you create. Won't you join us?

Thanks for stopping by
