DT Challenge: Beat the Heat

Hello!  This month’s challenge “Beat the Heat” was to create a project with cool colors and/or as few layers as possible.  So…here’s what I came up with using Birthday Wishes and a teeny bit of Country Drive paper.  I stamped in Palette inks, colored with Copics and used my rectangle Nesties.  And I popped up everything with my new favorite dimensional dots from Sticky Thumb.  (If you missed my video on them, check Saturday’s post.)

I also added a Zva gem and some Turquoise Stickles for some shimmer.  Oh!  And the Tim Holtz Swirls embossing folder.  Speaking of embossing, did you see the new No More Shims mat is in stock?  Get it.  NOW.  :)

Quick and easy card!  Now, go check out the new section of the store because there are LOTS of CHA goodies and check out the rest of the DT hop:

At first I thought the doggy was carrying blocks of ice! Guess this theme has started to go to my head!! Cute card- love the coloring!

Loretta said...

I'm with Gretchen! I thought those were blocks of ice on that darling dog's back! *giggle* I'm not wearing my glasses...

Love your card, Kate!
