First of all - thank you so much for all of your sweet comments!!! I'm so sorry that I don't have time to make comments in return to each and one of you every time, but then I wouldn't have time to make my cards...
But you should all know, that I truly appreciate every comment I get, and I do visit your blogs whenever I'm able to, to admire all your beautiful creations!!!!
I'm soon gonna arrange a little candy for you, to make up for my absence this summer (and to celebrate my numbers of bloghits and followers) - but be patiente and stay put :)
But, now on to my July stamp challenge for Unik Hobby:
First of all, I've used Malene's great sketch from her Summer Challenge to make this card.
I got this cute stamp, with a little mouse holding a big ice cream, and it matched perfectly with a couple of the new Maja Design papers from the Summer Collection, with lots of ice creams on :)
The image is stamped on aquarellpaper 200g with Archival Ink - Coffee, and is coloured with Distress Ink - Refills. The cool text (Congratulations) is from one of Kort & Godt's new stamp sheets.
The fun and cute papers from Maja Design's summer collection, are called Sommartider - "Iskall saft" & "Citronsorbet". I've also used some pink and white Bazzill cardstock to make the card.
The edges on all the papers are inked with Distress Ink - Victorian Velvet.
The white scalloped border is made with a edge punch from EK Suksess, and the circles and ovals are made with Spellbinders - Nesting Standard Circles & Petite Ovals. The butterflies are punched out with Martha Stewart - Royal Butterfly punch, and the pierced square is made with a Tim Holtz ruler and a piercing tool.
The other sides also got almost the same layout as the front ;)
On the first inside I've used a great sentiment from Kort & Godt, and on the other inside there's some space to write a perconal note.
The nice lace in white and silver is from Kuttut, but you'll find lots of other beautiful laces at Unik Hobby.
The georgeous blue rhinestones are from Queen & Co.
I've used one om my own signature stamps from My Costum Stamps on the back of the card.
The beautiful blue (15 mm) and pink (10 mm) roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, along with the white Ghypsholias.
Some of the ice cream balls have got some rainbow glitter on them, and the cherry on the top is glazed with Glossy Accents from Ranger.
I'm also entering this card in to these following challenges:
Thank you for visiting me today - have a grat weekend everyone!
Hugs, Lena Katrine
