Easy Breezy!

I love combining stamp sets and Create a Smile has tons that go together!  I did a unique combination of ice cream & bees for this one!

The awesome Create a Smile products I used for this card are:

I create my slim line card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 base, this leaves you with a leftover piece to use on the front.  The 9A size envelopes are perfect for this size and can be found at your local craft store or online!

I created the background by masking and repeatedly stamping the ice cream & cones, coloring them with copics.

I knew I wanted to add the adorable bee with the cherry in his hands so I stamped, colored him and fussy cut him out next.

I then die cut the stitched scalloped banners from black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiments in white.

Before adhering the banners, I lined them up and stamped the sprinkles and colored them with the wink of stella for a bit of sparkle.

To finish it off I added some nuvo jewel drops in yellow, blue & pink to go with the ice cream colors.

Now that the kids are going back to school you can stop doing all the housework and be crafty!  We would love to see all of your amazing creations on the Create a Smile Friends & Family FB page!

There is always a couple challenges to enter as well, the monthly August emboss resist challenge on FB or the bi-weekly challenge for your chances to win!

Thank you!
