Hi there! So glad you could join me on the blog today! I hope you are having a great weekend! I was in my craft room this weekend and got a chance to play some more with the adorable Bar-B-Cute collection. This time around I decided to get back to card making! I created ten cards with this collection and it was so much fun! I also decided to challenge myself and use CardMaps sketches to create my cards. If you are not familiar with CardMaps, they are from the same company that makes PageMaps... my go-to resource for scrapbook layout sketches. I was super happy to see that they also had card sketches! So I gave them a go!

These ten cards are from the July 2020 set of  sketches that can be found here: JULY 2020 CardMaps 

Here are the cards  I created. I used some 12x12 papers, some 6x6 papers, the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat die cuts, the This and That Sticker Sheet, and the Icon Stickers. I also used the Picnic Parade Shape Sprinkles, some of the new Confetti Shape Sprinkles, and some Doodle Twine. I also used a few metals dies, some ink, and some Wink of Stella glitter pen for some accents. Lots of fun stuff happening here! 

Here are the close-ups:

This collection was so much fun to play with. I loved all the food icons as well as the fun sun, clouds, and the hot air balloon. This is a great summer-themed collection and a great way to send a sunny greeting to someone special with one of these cards. I hope I have inspired you to create a few of your own using collection.
