Retro FABulousness

Fab friend

Wowzers! June already? How did that happen? I seem to be a record stuck on repeat but I'll say it again, this year is zooming by. But a new month means some new sneaky peeks of Clearly Besotted goodies available for purchase from 5th June 10pm (UK time). So, let's get started!

I'm a day late to the sneaky peeks but I'm hoping today's FAB card will make up for it. Yup, I've been busy playing with the new On The Beach die set to create some iced lollies (or popsicles as some of you may call them!) that bring back fond memories. I have a weakness for Fab lollies and this hasn't been the first time I've managed to incorporate them into my papercrafting - check out my previous take on this yummy treat here.  I was always a fan of Fab lollies when I was younger and would insist on following a routine of picking all the chocolate from the top, then eating the softer white layer leaving the red icy bit for last. Please tell me I'm not the only one that did, and maybe still does this!

Sorry, I digress! Enough trips down memory lane, more about the card. Those lollies were so easy to create: I simply die-cut the lolly a few times from white, pink and brown cardstock, chopped them up and pieced them together! The hundreds and thousands are represented by teeny tiny gems that I coloured with my ProMarkers and I added some icy shimmer to them using a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.

I was originally going to go very plain with this design but thought I'd inject a little more summer fun with the a double-sided sheet of Yum 12x12" BoBunny paper from the new #ForeverYoung collection. I then added a little more retro fun to the design by creating a customised sentiment using my Dymo label writer. :)

I hope today's card just goes to show how versatile the dies are that co-ordinate with the wonderful stamps from Clearly Besotted. I'll be back tomorrow with more sneaky peeks but until then, pop across to Stephanie's at CB HQ to check out some FABulous projects from the FABulous Design Team!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a FABulous today! :D
