Just Chillin’

It would seem the summer heat is here to stay and I’m enjoying plenty of icy drinks and an occasional popsicle to keep cool! This week’s cue word challenge over at CASology should help too!

Given the complexity of the English language, one could certainly define this word in a couple different ways!  I went with the definition relating to temperature.

Stamps:  Unity (KOTM), Paper Trey
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white), misc. glittered cardstock (silver)
Ink:  Memento (grey)
Accessories:  Crystal Effects, foam dots

I brought out the glittered cardstock again this week just because I think it is so “cool!”  I stamped the ice cubes and fussy cut them so that they could be popped up with foam dots.  I couldn’t resist shining them up a bit with Crystal Effects first, of course!  I wanted to repeat the square shape of the ice cubes in my overall design, so kept everything square.

I hope you’ll take a little time to visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs this week as well as our guest designer’s blog!  You’ll definitely feel refreshed and inspired when you see what they’ve dreamed up!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Love your take on the cue word, Melissa! Your ice cubes actually look frozen and I love how you framed them out with the silver glitter paper!

    The glitter paper looks like sparkly ice, and the smiling ice cubes are totally adorable! Great COOL card!

    The silver does give a cool effect. Now would those ice cubes smile if they knew they were melting?
