Popsicle Brads


Maybe it's just because it's summer, or maybe it's just because I've been hanging onto these cute brads for too long, but either way, lately I've been putting these popsicle brads on lots of cards! For this reason, I'm entering this card into this week's Shopping our Stash #160 - "can't put it down or put it away." I put one of these little summery treat brads on a card I posted a few days ago, and several others which I'll post soon. I thought it was a good match for the bottlecap dsp I've had for ages. I did some piercing on the main panel, adding a SU! sentiment done with punches and a bottlecap die done with my Quickutz. I did a little faux stitching around the edges and this card was done!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great week!

Oh, I love the popsicle brad again! It's just too cute not to use on a card. I also have some of the bottle cap paper but mine has probably turned yellow with age by now!
Cute card and love that paper piercing.

This is a really cute card Carol! I am loving those cute Popsicle brads, they are just adorable and look so cute on your cards. Are you ready for some cooler weather?! Even though we haven't have a lot of high temps but the humidity and dew points have made it miserable out. lol So I hope you enjoy the cooler weather. Hugs, Brenda

It is still so humid here that a popsicle would be great right about now. In fact I had one last night. Love the papers and your faux stitching and piercing all go together nicely. Enjoy your day.
