I am back today with a very cool and refreshing card for all of us enjoying a heatwave. I promise you that you will feel the chill looking at these card details 🙂
I love the dotted details!
First I cut it only from white heavy weight cardstock, but then I thought it would look so good with layering some ice cream colours under it. So I did the same with pink, yellow and light blue cardstocks too.
In the summer I love to eat ice cream and I enjoyed building my own deserts with the Ice cream party stamp set. With a bit of masking I created this yummy arrangement. When I create a scene like this, I always stamp each element on a scrap paper to see how they look best together.
When I have the final arrangement I can decide which image to stamp first and which ones next. It just makes it easier for me to build a collage and also helps if I want to make a copy of the card.
For all my stamping, even for the sentiment I used Raven Hybrid ink. I coloured the ice creams with alcohol markers, added some dotted details and some white gel pen highlights too.
When I was done with the colouring, I added the sprinkles to the pink scoop using the stamp from the set and Lipstick Jungle Hybrid ink. The chocolate syrup I stamped with Coffee Bean Hybrid ink first and then with clear embossing ink to be able to heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. I love the shiny texture I get like this.
For the background I used a pretty striped patterned paper from the Puddle Jumper paper pad (my favourite of all times). I also added some glossy accents to the fruits and sprinkles and finished this cool card with some iridescent jewels.
I hope you feel the chill now and got inspired. In the comments below let me know if you are craving ice cream now 😉 Until next time, happy crafting!
