*Whittle Things Blog Hop*

 It's the first Friday of the month and that can only mean one thing... it's time for the Scrap 'n Stamp Canada Blog Hop!  The design team gets together on the first Friday of every month for a hop where you have a chance to win a $50 shopping spree at Scrap 'n Stamp Canada!  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs in the hop for your chance to be chosen as our random winner!


For June, we are playing with the Whittle dies by Poppy Stamps.  Have you see these yet?  Check out some of the ones that are in stock at Scrap 'n Stamp HERE.  They are tiny little dies and they are super adorable!  I have four and I have my eye on a few more!!  This weekend, June 4th to 7th, all Whittle dies are 20% off!


My card is super colourful and fun.... and perfect for a summer birthday!  I took the ice cream die and cut it a few different times.  It is one die but the ice cream scoop is separate from the cone by about a 1/4 inch so I was able to not waste cardstock when I cut it first out of Sandy Beach cardstock to get the cone and then out of Turquoise Sea, Lovely Lavender, Passionate Pink and Jelly Bean to get the scoops.  

I started putting the card together but realized it needed "something".... so I pulled out some Lemon Drop cardstock and my A2 Layers dies from Waffle Flower (any rectangle dies would do) and I chose two dies so I could create a frame.  I didn't choose two that are side by side in size but rather skipped the one size to go one bigger.  I taped them together on my cardstock so that they wouldn't move before running it through my Big Shot.


I added the frame to the front of my white card base with glue as I find glue has a bit more "play time" when trying to get something in the perfect place.  I then added the cone to the bottom of the framed area and then added my scoops of ice cream using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips in Versafine Clair Nocturne and then cut it out use the Simple Strips Die and then used a piece of Passionate Pink to cute out the Simple Strips Backer.  I adhered the sentiment just above centre, just in the middle.

To finish it all off, I used some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals using their new Embellishment Wand the the triangle tray.... both of these tools are FABULOUS for using crystals and sequins!

And there you have it... a fun, colourful, summery card!

And now it's time for you to continue along with the hop....  here are all of the blogs for you...  be sure to comment on each stop for your chance to win $50 to spend at Scrap 'n Stamp!
