I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
The paper is from Echo Park's Summer Days Borders and I topped each ice cream scoop off with coordinating Candi -- Toy Box, Polka Dots - Citrus Burst, Flower Power - Mia and Gingham - Aurora.
Polka Dots - Citrus Burst
Flower Power Mia
Gingham - Aurora
The sentiment and banner stamp are from Taylored Expression It's a Banner Day 3 set and I embossed the sentiment using VersaMark Watermark Ink and Wow Embossing Powder in Berrylicious and Primary Bark.
The design paper is from Heartfelt Creations. The 3D flowers and leaves are created from Heartfelt Creations Striped Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set stamp and die and then I applied Viva Decor 3D stamp paint in Copper and Moss Green. I distressed the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye.
