Sweet Celebration




Good Monday Morning Peeps!

Today's card share is made with Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 25. This weeks colors are Only Orange, Yo-Yo Yellow, Green Galore, Pixie Pink and Whisper White. OK, take a deep breath, you can do this.......those are some scary colors!!!

I just got some of the new stamps coming in the new summer mini, that starts May 1st. I used a really fun set, "Sweet Scoops", that these colors seem perfect for. I cute, girly birthday card.

I started with a base of white. I then pulled out a piece of each of the colors. I cut a 1-3/4 inch square of each. I then ran them through my cuttlebug with the sizzix polka dot EF. I used the corner rounder on one corner of each square and mounted them to a piece of white card stock.

I stamped two of the ice cream swirls, one pixie pink and one yo-yo yellow, I then used my two way glue pen and some diamond dust too make the ice cream sparkle. I made a bowl, for the ice cream, (an idea that is shown in the mini) with my 1-1/2 inch circle punch, cutting off half and I added the ice cream to the bowl. This bowl of ice cream is mounted to a piece of whisper white and matted with only orange. I stamped the sentiment with only orange and tied a bow around the card base with yo-yo yellow 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
