ABC’S Blog Hop ~ L

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “L”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “L” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LAUREN MOORE’S Blog  then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Linda’s blog HERE.

I was trying to think about what would be a fun “L” element….. I was inspired by a new die I had seen in a magazine and really wanted to use it. How could I incorporate it into this hop…. LANDSCAPE!!!  So my “L”s are LANDSCAPE and LAGOON.

Ice Cream Dreams ~ ABC's L ~ Slidder card ~ I found this cool metal die by The Cat’s Pajamas ~ Slider so I could make easy slider cards.  I made a slid in the Lagoon Fundamental paper.  I also used the Thistle Fundamental paper to make the pull tab as well as the awning for the Ice Cream Truck.  I used my blending pen to color the truck.

Ice Cream Dreams ~ ABC's L ~ Slidder card inside ~ catscrapbooking.comI used foam tape to attach the Lagoon Fundamental to give room for the card to slide.  Since I attached this to a card base I still have the inside of the card to write my message to my recipient.

Products used for this project:

  • Fundamental Paper Pack ~ Adventure and Whimsy
  • Cardstock ~ White Daisy, Thistle, and Canary
  • Inks ~ Momento Black, Pear, Canary, Slate, Lagoon, Thistle and Pixie
  • Embellishments ~ Clear Sparkle Assortment and Pink Shimmer trim
  • Stamp Set ~ Ice Cream Dream S1506 (only available the month of June 2015)

Ice Cream Dream ~ June 2015 SOTM ~ Shaker card ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this project I used the following products ~ Adventure Fundamental papers, Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock.  The “happy birthday” if from Joyful Birthday B1419.  I used my Shin Han markers to color in the adorable puppy.  I did use some metal dies to cut my circle but it could be done using a punch, Cricut or Silhouette.  I used foam sheets from a craft store to act as the spacer between the card base and the top.  I love CTMH sequins but I used some from my stash to float in the card.

Your next stop is along this hop is GINA BRANDSTETTER’ Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
