Ice Cream Corner for Monday Morning Live

 

ice cream corner monday morning live 1

I've had it forever, and I've finally gotten around to playing with the Ice Cream Corner Suite! I didn't get everything in the suite. I got the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper and the  Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, but I didn't buy the stamp set that it bundles with. I was worried that I'd regret it, but I found out a secret about the DSP that I want to share with you today, that made me less regretful. After all, you only have so much money to spend and if there are ways to economize, then go for it. Spend it on the things you really, really want!

My trick is that you can build incredible ice cream cones using just the DSP and the punch, without needing the stamp set at all, unless you love the sentiments it comes with!

One of the Ice Cream Corner DSP (Designer Series Paper) samples looks like this:

This design is perfect for punching out the cone part of the ice cream cone using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.

Three other designs look like this:

ice cream corner dsp 3
ice cream corner DSP 4


These are interesting looking background patterns, yes, but if you take the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and punch in the center of one of those blotches, you have yourself a good representation of a scoop of ice cream. 

When you put them together, this is what you end up with:

  • You'll notice in the photo that the scoops of ice cream look shiny. That's not because the designer series paper is shiny. I made it look that way using Clear Embossing Powder and I'm going to show you how on my regular Monday Morning Facebook Live at 11 am PST on my Facebook page: Playing with Papercrafting.
  • The background paper is also from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. See below for materials and measurements for all the pieces.
  • The sentiments is from the Many Messages Bundle that I've been using and saving the sentiments from lately.
  • The sprinkles on the top of the highest ice cream scoop are the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles that go with this suite.

70th Birthday Card Using Fine Art Floral Suite

70th birthday card using fine art floral suite 1

 I needed a 70th Birthday Card today for a lady who loves flowers, especially red ones and the first thing that came to mind was the beautiful Poppy Parade coloured blooms from the Fine Art Floral Suite. I had a sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate all lined up with one of the beautiful floral designs in Poppy Parade, so I just needed to make sure they were still aligned properly and then cut a 4" x 5 1/4" panel for the card front for my Poppy Parade card base.

I almost had my card right there! To find out what else I did with it, read on:

  • I stamped one of the smaller floral design from the Art Gallery stamp set that is part of this suite on some Basic White cardstock with Poppy Parade and Old Olive for the leaves (which die cutting basically eliminated).
  • I did the second step of the 2 Step Stamping using Versamark and added Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it.
  • Using the Family Party stamp set I stamped the "70th" in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and did the same with the sentiment from Butterfly Wishes.
  • I die cut the whole thing with the largest label from the Tasteful Labels dies. (Yes, I used it again! It's becoming my most used die set very rapidly!!) and die cut the same shape in Poppy Parade cardstock to use behind as a backing. I just cut it in half horizontally and adhered each half separately to the top and bottom of the label.
  • My embellishment is a bow in the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.
It's quick but classy looking and one that anyone could put together easily, thanks to the beautiful DSP and Acetate overlay.
