Festive Friday: Picture Perfect Cafe Mashup

Jun 29, 2018 | Congratulations Cards | 1 comment

Put an X through it, June is D-O-N-E! Hello HOT!!

We’re all ready for those hot Summer nights over at Festive Friday where we’re celebrating Ice Cream Day (it’s on July 15th). That means we’re looking for ice cream inspired projects OR you can use the element which is SPRINKLES.

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • Pick your favorite ice cream flavor and use the colors in your design – like Neapolitan would be pink, chocolate and white
  • Go literal and use paper or a stamp image that has ice cream on it
  • Sprinkles could be any kind of fun sprinkle-like embellishment like sequins, pearls, rhinestones, etc…
  • Create a shaker card full of “sprinkles”

Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my monthly giveaway!

As I’m sure you can see, I went for the literal route, creating a cup of strawberry ice cream with sprinkles to go along with this fantastic celebrate sentiment. I love that this card can be used for all sorts of celebrations, not just birthdays!

Today’s project can be completed in just a few short steps.

AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
