Sweet Ice Cream
Welcome back, Stampers! In preparation for our “big snow,” (which I don’t think is going to be that big), Mike went snack shopping the other day. He bought doughnuts, popcorn, fruit (had to throw in something healthy, right?), and ice cream. I know ice cream isn’t something you think of eating during a snowstorm, but Mike’s mom ran an ice cream store for years. It was the go-to dairy in his family!
I had seen so many cute cards with the Stampin’ Up!® Sweet Ice Cream Bundle that I had to buy it. I ordered it in the summer, and I don’t think I ever used it. Between recent holidays and snow days, I finally got a chance to break it in.
Doesn’t that look yummy? One of Mike’s favorite flavors is lemon, so I know he’ll like this. I started with a Mango Melody card base, then added a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Mango Melody over the card base. Before I glued it, though, I stamped and die-cut the sentiment from the 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to diecut the sentiment. Looking back, I should have used a little bit narrower die. I had to stretch it to fit the sentiment. I’ll be doing a Facebook Live at 11 am Tuesday, so I’ll show you how I did it.
I cut a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock (a tinch smaller than 3-3/4″ x 5″) and embossed it with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a 3-3-4″ x 5″ piece of Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (DSP), then used another Stitched So Sweetly die to cut the center out of the DSP. I layered this over the embossed card stock.
For the ice cream cone, I made it a double scoop of lemon and blueberry using Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana Ink with basic White Cardstock. The cone is stamped in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. It was so easy to create this delicious treat with the coordinating Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.
This layout is so fun – and it works well for any occasion. Simply change the paper, colors, and stamps for a totally different look.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
Such a colorful beautiful card. Good to know on the measurements, that the Granny Green was a tinch smaller! I love the color combo and the inset green layer
“Tinch” is definitely a math term. In my world, it’s somewhere between 1/16 and 1/8″. 🙂
This is such a fun birthday card. I love how you made a frame of the DSP by cutting out the middle.
Thanks, Susan! I was able to use the centers that I cut from the frames on some cards using the other layout. Fun!
Oh, that does look yummy!
My lemon is a little more lemon than mango! It’s very yellow in the photo, but I think I’d still enjoy it!!
