Another Paper Trey Ink CASE and some Lawn Fawn "Sweet Treat" Cards

Happy Sunday!! Cannot believe it is August 2nd already. Where has the summer gone?

Today I am showcasing a few cards. The first one is another CASE from one of Paper Trey Ink's design team. I used a Dawn McVey's card this time as inspiration. Like I said yesterday, I created this card to go in a card set that included the two cards I created in my previous post.

Here is the card I created:


I chose Paper Trey Ink's "Limeade", "Lemon Custard" and "Melonberry", as well as WPlus9's "Blossomberry" as my color scheme. I used both the "Summer Quilt" stamp set, as well as their dies, and a bunch of patterned paper scraps to create the patchwork.

I die cut the quilt twice out of white, and once for each piece of patterned paper I used. I then adhered the white stitched quilt in the middle of the card and cut up the second quilt and adhered it so that it touched the top and bottom of the first.

Next I placed all the pieces of paper inside the stitched area, making sure that I staggered the colors.


I then cut, stamped and adhered a white sentiment strip across the front. I used foam adhesive on the strip to give it some dimension. Over the strip, I adhered a stamped, die cut flower. The last step was to adhere enamel dots in random areas near the sentiment strip, and a purple glitter dot on the flower.

I love how this came out and it was so relaxing to play around with the colored paper triangles. I need to make one more but think I will change the card base color. The Melonberry was really difficult to photograph.

My next two cards I created at the beginning of the month but never shared here. They were created using Lawn Fawn's "Sweet Treat" stamp and die set, as well as some other fun Lawn Fawn sets to accent them.


On this first card, I adhered a piece of "Cherry Pie" patterned paper that I cut with an MFT Blueprints die over a red card base. I then cut out a white circle and a red stitched circle frame. I adhered both to the front of the card.


I then stamped, colored and die cut the ice cream, rabbits, spoon and cake stand image. I also die cut a banner, stamped a sentiment and adhered it to the bottom half of the circle. I adhered the images to the front, some of the pieces with foam adhesive to give them dimension.


Next I adhered a few sequins and used glossy accents on the top of the ice cream and spoon.


Because I had them already stamped and cut, I adhered a little bunny and a sundae cup.


On my second card, I used Lawn Fawn "Monster Mash" set with the "Treat Yourself" set. I thought it would be fun to have them eating out of the ice cream carton.


I colored all the images with Copic markers and enhanced the monsters by using a white gel pen and some google eyes.


I placed a little monster on the inside as well. I think this card is my favorite of the two. Who can resist party monsters?

I thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. Have a wonderful day!!

Could your cards BE any cuter?! I hope not or I'd die of cuteness overload. My favorite has to be that sunshiney quilt though. I'm in awe of how perfectly put together all of your cards are. Also, I've thought this quite frequently, but your photography looks amazing. I want to be as good as you!
