My Craft Spot - Hot Summer Colors Challenge!

I hope everyone is able to enjoy summer wherever they are - and that it isn't too hot! But, it is perfect timing to celebrate summer, and the new challenge over at My Craft Spot is Hot Summer Colors!!! I hope you'll come join the fun with us! Here is my project: 
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the scallop frame, and the popsicles. The cut file for the popsicles is from Echo Park, and can be found in the Silhouette store (click HERE to view it if you're interested). I don't remember what cut file I used for the scallop background...sorry about that!  
All the pattern paper is from Echo Park - the yellow, pink, and blue is from the Dots and Stripes Fountain 6x6 paper pad, and the striped background is from an older 6x6 paper pad, Summer Days. 
I used kraft paper to cut the popsicle sticks - isn't it perfect for that?  
I then used three different kinds of twine to get the colors I wanted: Divine Twine in Lemon Divine, Trendy Twine in Strawberry Cupcake, and Twinery Twine in Caribbean. I tied on some cute tags that were stamped using the Tiny Tags stamp set from My Craft Spot. Here is a close up of each tag:

I wrapped some hand dyed crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot in Sunshine Yellow, Hot Pink, and Caribbean to wrap around the background pattern paper.
I then attached the popsicles with foam adhesive, and then attached the scallop frame to the card base with foam adhesive. 
Well, that's it! Sorry for so many pictures! Hope to see you join in the fun with us this week! Head over to My Craft Spot to check out all the details - as well as the prize up for grabs this week!


  1. These popsicles are so yummy, I love the pattern paper you used! So fun how you used three different images from the tiny tags set... great idea! :)

  2. I love this one...the patterns and ribbon is fab. I'm really wanting a Cameo. Lee-Ann :)

  3. I just LOVE this card!!! The papers you used couldn't be more perfect and it's so cool how you layered the ribbon behind!!!
