Here's a look at the Double Dip Sundae Subscription.


Here's a look at the Banana Split Sundae Subscription.


I have five cards to share with you today. I made 4 cards using the Double Dip Sundae Subscription (with the exception of my sentiment on card #3 - I used the die from the Banana Split Sundae subscription) along with the sketches for this month and I made 1 extra card using items only available in the Banana Split Sundae Subscription along with the stamps from Collection 2.


For my first card I used Sketch #4 with Collection One.
I stamped the fox and colored him in and then decided he needed some confetti falling so I added those and colored them in. I used similar colors to the papers in the collection so everything would coordinate. I then stamped the cake, presents and other cute little stamps on a scrap piece of white card stock and colored them in. I trimmed this piece and mat it on the same Orange Fizz card stock as the main card front. I mat the fox image on a piece of patterned paper from the Happy Birthday Boy by Echo Park papers in the collection. I stamped the little party horn on a scrap piece of white card stock, colored it in, and fussy cut it out. I adhered all of my pieces to the card front that I had adhered to a white card base. I then trimmed the sentiment strip from the patterned paper and cut it to use as my sentiment. My last touch for the front of the card was a few sequins.
I used the following copic markers for this card ~ YR01, YR15, YR16, R17, E30, E31, E40, B0000, B00, B97, B99,Y000, Y06, Y11.


Here's a photo of the inside of the card.
I just had to color the other little fox in the stamp set and add him to the inside of the card. I also stamped the sentiment and adhered a strip of patterned paper.


For my second card I used Sketch #3 with Collection Two.
I paper pieced and colored the cake. I trimmed the piece and mat it on a piece of patterned paper. I also stamped the little slice of cake, colored it in with copic markers and die cut it. I mat it on a die cut circle cut from another piece of patterned paper. I cut the flags from the patterned papers and also cut apart the sentiment from another piece of patterned paper. I mat the first portion of the sentiment on white card stock and set aside the other pieces for the inside of the card. All that was left was to assemble the card. I adhered all of the layers, but popped up the slice of cake and the sentiment. I added a few sequins and then started on the inside of the card.
I used the following copic markers for this card ~ RV10, RV11, RV14, C00, C1, BG0000, BG11, Y000, Y06.


Here's a photo of the inside of the card.
I adhered a strip of patterned paper to the bottom that tied in with the sentiment that starts on the front of the card and finished off in the inside of the card.


For my third card I used Sketch #2 with Collection Three.
I started this card by cutting out my layers and matting them on the Whipped Cream card stock in the kit. I also used the Whipped Cream card stock for the card base. I stamped the pineapple with a light tan ink and basically colored it in using the No Line technique. I die cut the pineapple using the die included in the collection. I decided to use the wonky die to cut out my oval and adhered the pineapple. I popped up the oval on the card and added a few sequins. I used the die from the Banana Split Sundae subscription to add a sentiment to the card.
I used the following copic markers for this card ~ E57, Y06, Y17, RV0000, RV11, 
RV13, BG01, BG13.


Here's a photo of the inside of the card.
To continue the theme of the card I adhered a strip of the same patterned paper from the front of the card and did some Second Generation stamping with a light pink ink. Second Generation stamping (also known as Repetition Stamping or Stamping Off) means I inked up my stamp and first stamped it on a scrap piece of paper before stamping it on my card... it gives a lighter image. I did that so it was visible but could easily be written over by the sender. Funny though, it's so light that it's hardly visible in the picture. I took several pictures and this was the best I could do. :)


For my fourth card I used Sketch #1 with Collection Four.
I used Collection Four for my Sneak Peek post... if you missed that you can check it out here.
For this card I decided to focus on the sentiment and the music notes. I did all of my stamping on the Grout Grey card stock, trimmed and mat my pieces on the Jelly Bean Green card stock. I layered all of the pieces on a white card base and then added a few strips of patterned paper for my flags. My final touch was a few sequins. I just love that the sequins in this collection are the discs... they're so cute for a music themed collection! Love it!
I used Memento tuxedo black ink and Mowed Lawn distress ink for this card.


Here's a photo of the inside of the card.
Just like the previous cards, I adhered a strip of patterned paper and stamped the cute radio from the Create a Smile Rock On stamp set using Peeled Paint distress ink again using the Second Generation stamping technique. 


Now for my final card for this hop... I used the Sunny Studio Make a Wish set from Collection Two. I stamped the images all over a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch piece of Neenah 110lb smooth white solar crest card stock. I colored the images in using the following copic markers ~ RV0000, RV10, RV21, B0000, B00, BG0000, BG11, BG32, C00, C1, Y000, Y02. I added some sparkle to the edges of the cake using the Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops included in the Banana Split Sundae subscription. Once that was dry, I then die cut the panel using a large scalloped rectangle die and then I decided to emboss the panel using the Wishes die included in the Banana Split Sundae subscription. To emboss with a die using the Big Shot you use the following sandwich (bottom to top) ~ Extended Multipurpose Platform (Tab 1) - Cutting Pad - Die - Card stock - Silicone Rubber - Impression Pad or another Cutting Pad. I embossed the Wishes die five times on the panel and then die cut it 3 times from the Neenah card stock.


I adhered all of the die cut Wishes together and then adhered them to the scalloped panel that I had adhered to a white card base. You can see the embossed wishes and some of the sparkle in the picture above. I didn't do any stamping or anything on the inside of this card... at least, not yet. ;)

I hope you enjoyed the cards I shared today. I had so much fun creating them to share with you all.
Let's get to hopping and see what the other members of the design team created!
