Good Times

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a project to share with you featuring some fabulous Die-Versions dies :)


I do love fall, but summer is my favorite season, so I made this card to bring back some sweet summer memories :) The papers are from Fancy Pants Wave Searcher stack. The focal point of the card is the fabulous Good Times Sweet Frames die. It was cut twice in the patterned paper and offset for a shadow effect. You can't tell in the pic, but I used a Wink of Stella Clear Brush Marker on the frame so it glitters. The swimming friends are from Artistic Outpost's Boardwalk stamp set. They were shaded with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a TH Waterbrush.


A Wee Petites This Way Arrow die was used on the top right to point out the To The Beach sign on the paper. Wee Petites Button dies were used in the enters of the flowers and the ribbon. "Sweet Summertime" is from Craftin Desert Divas Summer Lovin stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Artistic Outpost - October AO Challenge
  2. DL.Art - October Linky

Be sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 21st. The Die-Versions Design Team will be hosting a Think Pink Blog Hop to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. You can participate by linking your Think Pink card...you could win a $25 gift certificate to shop at the Die-Versions store!! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

  1. really sunny colour card, I can imagine the beach side fun...! The crinkled ribbon bow soften the overall look of the card, great technique!

  2. Girl I am right there with you about loving Summer. Bring it back, Bring it back, Bring it back....somehow that never works for me, but I feel better after I chant it that I tried. :-) For a girl who was born and raised in Florida and then lived in Hawaii for 9 years....I would say I'm a solar powered girl.

    So keep those awesome summer creations coming! :-) Hope you have a FANTASTIC Friday!
