It’s Picnic Time


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week Andrea Murdock brings us her final challenge as hostess for July.

For our challenge this week Andrea has challenged us with the theme … Picnic Time!- Interpret this anyway you’d like! You could do a card with a checkered tablecloth background, a food card, a picnic invite, ice cream, fireworks, ANTS! Whatever picnic means to you!

Yes I am still playing with my Sizzix Pop N Cuts die I purchased recently. As I had already created a Picnic themed Pop Up card featuring ants which you can see here, I decided to go in another direction this week.

This week I decided to use this cute Bugs Picnic stamp from Alota Rubber stamps to create my card.  I have used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Square Card with Ornate Edge for the card base … I love the shape this creates!


For the inside of my card I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Wavy Label Insert along with the Sizzix Wavy Label Framelits set.

I pulled out some really old picnic stamps from my stash from Museum of Modern Rubber. Along the lower edge of my card I have used a Picnic Border punch from EK Success which I think is now discontinued. I punched it out once from white card and then from red so that I could color the basket and pie that are on the top of the border.
