Summer Beverage

Hello Friends!
Today I decided to look over the blogland challenge listing
and see what caught my eye that I could play/share.

The Paper Players Challenge is what caught my eye first . . .

My card turned out a little different from what I had
first envisioned but I'm still very happy with it ... what do you think?

I've been trying to remember to use colored card stock for the
base of my cards (I have a TON of it!) so went with a pretty ocean blue
for today's card then die cut my frame & sentiment panels using

Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Wrapped Stitch Frames

For my beverages, I've used the Pink Ink by Impression Obsession
Party Drink stamps and Party Drinks dies.  What a fun set to create with ... perfect for this time of year!

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring
and popped my drinks up using dimensional tape.

(who doesn't enjoy relaxing with a cool beverage! lol

Hope you have a very enjoyable day!  
As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by! 


  1. Darlene, this is such a fun card! I love that sentiment and the drinks! Your stitched frame looks perfect, too! SO happy you joined my challenge at The Paper Players this week! XX

  2. It is so festive, I like when a card doesn't turn out like you had hoped but still looks great!

  3. I love the drinks! So fun to have the dies with them, too. Very refreshing and colorful! I need to use more of my plain colored card stock, too. I use it for mats and sometimes frames and dies, but that means it's lasting forever and I, also, have a ton of it!

  4. Oh, I would want a day as it!! :D :D LOL
    Fabulous CAS!!

  5. What fruity, delicious drinks! I like the pairing of the blue paper with the wavy die cuts - really emphasizes a water theme.

    Thanks for sharing it with us for our Cut it Up for our Welcome Summer challenge!


  6. A lovely card. Thank you for playing along with us at QKR Stampede.

  7. What a perfect summer beverage card, Darlene! I love the colors you used. The Wrapped Stitched Frame is such a neat detail. Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players!

  8. Love the blue background with the stitched white frame detail Darlene and your cocktails look delicious! Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  9. I can see that you're having a lot of fun with these stamps and dies and you're making me want to take myself to a tropical beach, sit in a hammock and enjoy one of these drinks while swaying ever so slightly in the warm afternoon breeze. Well, one can wish, darn it!
    Love your card and everything about it :-)
    Big hugs my friend.
