Week 2 - Summer Card Camp - Adventures With Ellie

Week 2 - Summer Card Camp

Happy Wednesday everyone.  Its a SUPER hot one today in NY. Its too hot to take Sassy out because of her asthma so we have been keeping cool inside. Tonight we will see if we go for a walk if the humidity calms down to get some ice cream. Which brings me to one of my cards today.

This is the 2nd week in Summer Card Camp which is such a BLAST. I love it. This week we had this as our color challenge :

Here is my first card : 

So as you can see I had ice cream on the mind! For this I used my super Fun Silhouette to cut the ice cream. On the cone I used my Papertrey Ink stamp - A Little Argyle for the "cone effect". I thought of how hot it is and in this heat what would happen if we didn't gobble this yummy treat right up. Right melt so I grabbed my Crystal effect and that's how I got the melting. For the Cherry I took a glitter dot and colored it with a Copic marker. The sentiment was done with my Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Stickers.

After I finished that card I was putting stuff away when a set I hadn't used in forever fell out and it was as if it said HEY why not make a card with me. So that's  just what I did :

I love this set and as I was using it I said WHY haven't I pulled it out. I also am happy that I get another awesome year with it as Stampin Up kept it in the new catty. For this card I used my Colorbox inks as they stay wetter longer and I was able to blend and "color" on the stamp to achieve the coloring.   I used my Trio Butterfly from Martha Stewart for the tiny butterflies. I added a drop Stickles for the middles. The sentiment came from Papetrey Ink. For the final touch I sprayed the cardstock with Maya Mists.

I love to make just because cards because to me its always fun to mail a card to someone when they least expect it. Its fun to open up something other then a bill right?

As always thank you so much for stopping by and hope you get to enjoy the rest of your day!
