Cardmaking Ideas for Smoothie Lovers!

 

Talk about perfect for summer!  All cold, refreshing and pastel goodness making you think of a healthy smoothie or delicious milk shake.  What if I told you that these refreshing beverages were created from our Coffee First Die Set?  Of course, coffee equals frapuccino but you don’t always think about summer treats when you think of coffee!

These dies are just so versatile, even if you’re not a coffee fan [do those exist?] you’ll be cranking out cards that invoke all kinds of beverages. Shannon created the beautiful card we shared above and we’re pretty sure you’re going to be obsessed like we are, so she created a video with a step by step guide of how to create these pastel drinks.

Mmmm….which would you choose?  One is paint, one is Color Splash and the last is Silks!  Let’s watch these all come together.

Are you as inspired as we are?  There are so many good ideas here and so much creativity. We love the different effects the different mediums have.

Let’s not forget to take these delicious drinks a step forward if we feel like it!  Journey Sparkle Cuts can take your beverages beyond smoothies and shakes to snow cones and more making the Coffee First Die Set even MORE versatile. [Who knew that was possible?]

Did you love seeing the techniques Shannon used on this card?  Make sure you tune into our FSJ Facebook Page or YouTube channel on Friday afternoons to see our Try Day Friday series, where we share techniques and ideas you’re sure to love!
