I am back today with a super cute ice cream card because summer equals ice-cream, don’t you think? I used Newton’s Nook Designs stencils, stamps and dies to create this fun little one.
First I stamped ad coloured the image from the Newton’s Summer Treats set, I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The list of colours I used is the following:
- CAT: EB5, MB4, MB3, MB1,
- ICE CREAM: GB4, GB2, MB1, PP5, PP4, PP2, DR5, DR3, DR1, CT1, LY1, EB5, EB3, LG4, LG2, LG1
I used the coordinating die to cut the cat out and focused on the background. I had the idea of using the new Cupcake layering stencil set to make an ice cream background. So I used the first layer with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink on kraft cardstock and poured clear embossing powder on it until it was wet. I heated it with my heat tool to give it some shine. Then for the second layer I used white pigment ink, it looks like cream on kraft! So delicate and yummy!
It was time to set the scene: I die cut the background with the scalloped rectangle from Frames and Flags and die cut a big vellum circle and a smaller pink one with the Circle Frame dies. I also cut 2 hearts wit the same set from pink cardstock. For my sentiment I needed a mint green banner for the message, I used the Banner Trio for that.
I stamped the sentiment on the pink circle from the Newton’s Summer Treat stamp set and another one from the Birthday Roundabout stamp set on the green banner. Then I assembled the card, I used 3D foam squares to pop up the banner and the focal image. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the hearts and ice cream toppers.
I hope you liked my card for today and will pop in again soon.
