I totally fell in love with the sketch challenge today at "Create with Connie & Mary". Take a peek:

When the new In-Color Summer Starfruit was first delivered with my new stash of supplies, I wasn't really sure if I liked it or not. It kind of has a greenish tint to it depending on what colors you pair with it. The colors I used today kept it as the yellow it was meant to be:

I also used Summer Starfruit for my ink color with the Betsy's Blooms Jumbo Wheel Stamp. Remember how I showed you a tutorial on how to unmount your wheel stamps HERE? I did it again with this wheel stamp. It's so much easier to stamp exactly where you want and in a straight line! I added just a hint of bling by adding a few Rhinestone Jewels

Supplies for card:
  • Cardstock: Summer Starfruit, Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
  • Inks: Summer Starfruit
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Tasteful Trim Die
  • Stamps: A Word for You, Betsy's Blooms Jumbo Wheel

  3. What a truly fun card!! I love the colors and the different strips you used! And the bling always adds a great touch!

  4. I've been unmounting my wheels, too, and find I do use them more, but I have done that wheel yet...off to do it now! I wondered how you got it so perfectly straight! Love the bling, too!

  5. Love the clean look of this card. I really, really like summer starfruit - different but pairs up well with lots of colors.

  6. Very cool card! Know what you npmean about Starfruit color...really does change with different colors. Your pairing is wonderful. Thanks for reminder to take roller stamps off...I can never use these rollers and make anything look right!
