Here is a card I made, trying to channel some Summer Heat on this cold and snowy February day! I used the Splitcoast Color Challenge 207 - Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun - can you say HOT!?! The sketch is from a Splitcoast member company, Verve Visual. This stamp set is a retired one, Shore Thing.
The card base is Kiwi Kiss and I used my Coluzzle to cut a circle from Pumpkin Pie and a smaller one from Whisper White. I stamped the beach chair in Old Olive ink and the sun in Summer Sun. The sand grains are stamped in Creamy Caramel. Then I stamped the sand pail in Pumpkin Pie ink and cut it out with my Coluzzle as well. The Summer Sun mat is with the Wide Oval Punch. I added some Pumpkin Pie eyelets from the retired pack of Earth Elements Eyelets and wrapped some of the new Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon around the card front. The pail is mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here is another card I did, using another sketch from Verve. The challenge was to follow the sketch and use acetate. I used a heavy weight piece cut to a rectangle for one of the layers. Then I wrapped it with my very last piece of this wonderful Chocolate Satin ribbon, knotted at the top.
TIP: To have a symmetrical V cut in the ribbon ends, fold the ribbon in half and cut at an angle from the fold out.
The tower of cupcakes from Crazy for Cupcakes are an image RAK from my friend Lisa. I colored them with my Blender Pen and the ink pads. The I cut them out and adhered them using Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon and acetate layer are adhered with Mini Glue Dots underneath the cupcake tower, so the adhesive doesn't show. I stamped this sentiment from the Hostess Level I set, Sweet Little Sentiments, in Ruby Red ink onto a strip of Whisper White. Then I cut the banner tip with the My Way Punch. The banner is adhered with a Mini Glue Dot on the right end and a Stampin' Dimensional on the left to help it curl.
