Let’s get started with some Sparkly Summertime Card Making Inspiration. Today, I’m sharing cards using the Shades of Summer Stamp (+Coordinating Dies), Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Stamp Combo (+Coordinating Dies), On the Block-Cool Stamp + Dies, Building Blocks-Cool Additions, Mini Strips-Hello Summer Stamp and of course Taylored Expressions Glitter and Glitter Grab.
Shades of Summer-From Grumpy to Sunny
I figure it’s pretty hard to be Grumpy when you have yourself a cool pair of Glitter Glam Shades to enjoy the warm and cheerful sunshine. Using the Shades of Summer Stamp and Coordinating die, I die-cut the solid shade images from white cardstock and the frames from Lollipop and Cookie Monster Card stock. With Lemon Meringue Ink, I stamped the polka dot and stripe images, added the glitter sparkle frames and attached the shades to the Copic-Colored Big Grumpy Cat & Bear.
To add the Glitter Sparkle to the glasses, I mixed Lollipop and Cookie Monster with Glossy Accents and then applied the glitter mixture directly to the glasses with a palette knife.
To complete the cards, I masked the Big Grumpy Cat and used the Here Comes the Sun Stencil with Lemon Meringue Ink to create a Sunny Day background. I kept the Big Grumpy Bear background clean and simple with Diagonal Rectangle Stitching. I added the Sentiment from Shades of Summer to the “Grumpy now Sunny” signs and for a little extra pop of sunshine, I added Lemon Meringue Starstruck Die Cuts to each of the cards.

You’re SO Cool…How Cool?…POP-SO-COOL
For my Pop-So-COOL card, I couldn’t wait to try out the Glitter Grab with the fine loose glitter and let me tell you it’s like magic with stencils!! Using my Bitty Blenders, I ink blended a row of Rainbow Popsicles and then added the Popsicle Sticks with Toffee Ink using the Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Stamp Combo.
I added the dimension to the inside of the popsicles using the clear stamps. After all the stenciling and stamping was complete, I applied the Glitter Grab to the Popsicle Top Stencil with a Nuvo Media Spatula. After carefully removing the stencil (and quickly cleaning the Glitter Grab from the stencil), I added Lollipop, Candy Corn and Peapod Glitter. Using the Anything Popsicle Dies, I was able to cut all of the popsicles with one pass with my die cutting machine.
Tip/Trick: To make sure the glitter didn’t transfer to my cutting plate, I added a piece of copy paper to the top of the die cut layer.
For the COOL sentiment, I used the Cool On the Block Stamp (+Coordinating Die) with VersaMark Ink, Lollipop Cardstock and White Embossing Powder. The “You’re So” is from the Building Blocks-Cool Additions stamp (+coordinating die). To finish the card, I arranged the Popsicles above the COOL sentiment in a fun zig-zag order.

You Melt My Heart
For my last card, I did a little play on hearts. I used Bitty Blenders to create a Mini Slim Card using the Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Stamp Combo with Glitter Grab and Pearl Glitter. The Pearl Glitter is so pretty and reminded me of ice cold frost on the top of the popsicle.
I added the Poppy Seed stenciled hearts from the Stencil Strips-Love Set. The black & white heat embossed sentiment is from the Mini Strips-Hello Summer Stamp. For a little extra pop, I added Bits & Pieces – Hearts between the inked, stamped and glitter popsicles.
