DESIGNER CHALLENGE -- AMY

Hello everyone!!  This is Amy from Scrapping Mommy and I get to host the Designer Challenge this week.
Summer is in full swing and I thought it would be fun to do a Summer themed challenge, so create anything with a Summer theme and share it with us in the links below.
For my project, I created a side step card (I watched a video on YouTube to figure out how to make one) and then decorated it with cuts from my Cricut and the the Pack Your Bags cartridge.
 
I did a little embossing and added some foam adhesive to give the front panel a little bit of dimension and texture.
The waves and sun all have Stickles glitter glue added to them.....I think that it really makes the waves stand out better than they did before I added it.
To finish off my card, I added the perfect sentiment with the Fly Away With Me sentiments and die cut image along with a little bit of bakers twine.
I hope that this card has inspired you to create a summer themed card and join us in the challenge.
Hugs,
Amy

  11. Hi Emma!
    Thank you for sharing your adorable card! Info about the black ink... Memento Inks are great only when you're coloring with Copics. For water coloring, the best black ink pads are Stazon, Ranger Archival Ink and I think the Hero Hues Dye ink because they are waterproof. Hope this helps :). Have a wonderful day!

  34. Summer makes me think of yummy burgers on the grill. The cutting file is from Lettering Delights cut with the Cameo. The banner is Vintage Stitched Label Die and the sentiment is from "This & That"

  35. I love to watch Hummingbirds in the summertime! This card is made using a cutting file from SVG Cuts. The Stitched Tag Die is stamped with the Cartoon Cloud Background. It is tied with Timeless Twine in Strawberry Lemonade. The sentiment is from This & That stamp set and stamped on the Curly Label and Stitched Curly Label Die. I sure had fun with this challenge.
