Keeping Cool

It's another Pink Saturday and nothing is better in this 100 degree heat than sharing with a friend some raspberry swirl vanilla ice cream and a trip to the ocean front.   (See my challenge entries below.)

I used lots of new product that arrived in my craft room.  
As a Stampin' Up Card Club member, I bought a set of frame stamps with the matching punch.  I added to them a sentiment from the Rogue Redhead Designs LLC Beach Babes stamp plate.  (The main image is from that plate as well--my choice for the Craft Room friends challenge and also the nature (ocean) challenge at Fashionable Stamp.  The sandy background stamp on the crumb cake paper mat also is from this RRD plate.) The card design is part of the Rogue Redhead sketch challenge.

I used for the first time my Stampin' Up edgelits--die and embossing set.  I used the die 3 times to layer the edge.  I thought this Basic Grey Kissing Booth paper was a perfect representation of the Baseball Nut ice cream flavor for this week's Summer of Color challenge.  I went a little heavy on the cashews (crumb cake paper and ink).

Materials Used:

Paper Studio ivory cardstock (the paper is a creamier color but it didn't photograph that way)
Stampin' Up Sissex Impressions and Edgelits Adorning Accents
Basic Grey Kissing Booth Lip Lock patterned paper
Stampin' Up Crumb Cake card stock
Stampin' Up Crumb Cake ink
Stampin' UpPunch Extra Large Decorative Label
Stampin' Up Four Frames (label stamp)
Rogue Redhead Designs Beach Babes stamp plate (image of two friends scooping shells, sentiment, and sand background stamp)
