Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have some fun ice cream and popsicle cookies to inspire us!
SWEET ICE CREAM
Of course I had to use the Sweet Ice Cream set for my card, but wanted to do popsicles this time since both were in the photo! Don’t they look yummy?
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Magenta Madness cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On top is 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
- A 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Ice Cream Corner Designer Paper was added to the left side.
- The Layering Oval was cut from Basic White and adhered to the front.
- A 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Magenta Madness cardstock was added across the front and stamped with the greeting from Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Memento Black Ink.
- The popsicles were stamped with Magenta Madness and Highland Heather Inks and the sprinkles with Gorgeous Grape Ink. They were hand cut and added to the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The popsicle sticks were stamped with Crumb Cake Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and hand-cut then added under the popsicles.
- Wink of Stella was applied over the popsicles, then Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles were added with Tombow Multipurpose Glue at the top.
- White Baker’s Twine was tied in a bow and adhered to the popsicle.
I love the colors of these popsicles…so cool how the stamps are “divided” so you can use two different colors on them! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials. See more details here!
Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
