It's Grillin' Time!

Hi all, Becky from The Scrap-a-Teeny Girls here!
Sum, sum, sum, sum, sum, summertime!! Summertime!
Sum, sum, sum, sum, sum, summertime!! Summertime!
Sum, sum, sum, sum, sum, summertime!! Summertime!
The best part about summer-time to me is all the BBQ-ing going on! I love the smell of the grill! I have even joked with my husband when he steps in from the grill that he's wearing my favorite cologne! I JUST LOVE that charcoaly-smokey aroma stuck to his skin & clothes!!! Or simply stepping outside on a hot summer day to smell a grill working somewhere in the neighborhood! Ahhhhhh! Sum, sum, sum, sum, sum, summertime!! Summertime! Ok, I'll stop all that!

So, when I saw this die-cut, I knew I had to make a little "Q" card with it for my first post after the Patriotic Blog Hop! I may just have to do a little "Ode to the Q" on my personal blog soon too! It's pretty simple & I hope ya like it!

I used a CC&M A7 card in Bazzill Blue Canvas Textured cardstock.
I applied embossing ink & red embossing powder to parts of the Barbecue Grill #01-Small, but then I turned the grill over & "flicked" some of the crystals off the front. This allowed for only some of the areas on the grill to be shiny from embossing! When the diecut cooled off from embossing, I rubbed some "Tea dye" Distress Ink over the embossed areas to give it a more dirty-grilly-gritty look.
Once the grill was attached to the card, I ran a few light lines of "Star Dust" Stickles up to the corner of the card. Then, I punched some 1" stars (Fiskars) out of BoBunny's "Block Party Chill" patterned paper & scattered them over the Stickles with Glue Dots. Finally, I added the "BBQ" label & arrow from the BoBunny "All About the Family" collection.

That's it!
See you soon!
