We all scream for Ice Cream

I scream, you scream.  We all scream for Ice Cream!!  And the new Stampin’ Up! In-Colors scream Ice Cream – don’t you think?  I do.  So one of the things on my list for the In-Color hands-on class that I had this month was to make an ice cream cone card.  Before I had a chance to make mine my friend Cindy created one – great minds think alike!  So I took her inspiration and created a card for my class.

  • I used the Cupcake Builder punch to make the ice cream scoops – a scoop of Strawberry Slush, a scoop of Pistachio Pudding and a scoop of Crisp Cantaloup.  Each scoop was sponged with the same color of ink.
  • I used the Pennant Duo punch to make the ice cream cone – Baked Brown Sugar cone.  Embossed with the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing folder. Then sponged with Baked Brown Sugar ink.
  • I glued the scoops on top of the cone.  To the top add a cherry – punched from the Cupcake Builder punch from the Strawberry Slush card stock and use the Baked Brown Sugar marker to color the stem.  If you would like – carefully sponge one side of the cherry.
  • cone-close-upThe card base is Strawberry Slush card stock – punched on the front edge with the Scallop Border punch – then I used the Paper Piercer and piercing mat to pierce a whole in the center of each scallop.  On the inside of the card I glued a piece of Pistachio Pudding card stock.  Its a little hard to see in the photo.
  • Stamp greeting on the front – lower right hand corner with Baked Brown Sugar ink – I used “SMILE” from the Happy Day stamp set.
  • On the front glue a half piece of a paper doily and then a strip of the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer paper – the Strawberry Slush print.
  • Tie Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the front of the card – tie in a bow.
  • Add the ice cream cone with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Sent it to someone special!

  1. Wow, Monika, that’s a coincidence – as soon as I got back from my summer holiday I made an ice-cream with the exact same punches/embossing folder/in colors! Great minds indeed…
