Sandy Beach Ice Cream Card

I’m back again today with another card featuring the Ice Cream Corner Suite, this time focusing on the Ice Cream Builder Punch and the Designer Paper. Included in the Ice Cream Corner DSP are four designs which work perfectly with the punch. The first is a design which is cross hatched and looks like ice cream cones, there are also three designs which have watercoloured splodges on them (beautiful as backgrounds) which when using the punch can become the scoops of ice cream. I really love how they’ve been designed to make crafting easy.

To make the sandy beach effact background I tore a matt of scrap paper and adhered it to the centre of the card base with one glue dot. I then took then Bending Brush and worked a layer of So Saffron ink all around the edges and the over the top with a layer of Crumb Cake, to add a little depth. Wish I hadn’t been quite so with the Crumb Cake as it now looks like mud, oh well!

I then added three punched ice-creamsto the centre of the card, looking at them now I think I should have given then some sprinkles.

I’ve finished the card off with a few Mango Melody Self Adhesive Sequins from the Artistry Blooms Collections and the Happy Birthday greeting from the set stamped in Blackberry Bliss. No joke I’d buy this stamp set for that Happy Birthday stamp alone as I love it!

Treat Yourself Lollipop Card

The Ice Cream Corner Suite is my favourite from the January to June Mini Catalogue, I love all the bright fun colours and who doesn’t love ice-cream! The paper is my favourite part of this suite and I’d love to hoard packs and packs of it but think hubby would get annoyed. Each sheet is full of colour and will definitely make you smile.

For this card I’ve used my very favourite sheet with the multi-coloured ice-cream cones and matted it on Blackberry Bliss to really make it “pop”.

I’ve stamped a couple of lollipops to add as a focal point. These are made with two stamps, for the tops I’ve used second generation stamping to get a lighter colour. So my lollipops are probably your normal Strawberry and Blur Raspeberry. But you can mix up the colours to make any flavour you like, Granny Apple Green and Magenta Madness anyone?

I’ve finished the card off with a touch of the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon. I love how this is see-through so you can see even more yummy ice-creams peeping through.
