Scoops of Fun

Hi everyone.  Today I have made a card for the color challenge at Color Throwdown (CTD239 - certainly celery, barely banana, pretty in pink, blush blossom).

Such lovely and soft colors  ... at first I thought of making a vase of flowers, but the colors just made me think of yummy ice cream.  It's been warm and sunny here for the past several days ... it seems like summer is here and so ice cream is on my mind!  Looks like the nice weather is coming to an end, though.  The weatherman is calling for rain, rain and more rain starting tomorrow and through the weekend.  At least I was able to be outside for a while these past few days in my garden ... once the rain hits, it's an excuse to be in my art studio even more :)  Win/win for me!! :)

Stamps:  Sentiment is from Scoops (Lisa's Doodley Doos)
Paper:  White, Crumb Cake, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Sweet Treats die set (C.C. Designs), sponges, Dazzling Details (SU!), blender pen, Blossom Twine (The Twinery), mat, stylus, and dimensionals

I die-cut the cones from Crumb Cake cardstock, and ran my blender pen (and a little Soft Suede ink) along the embossed "waffle" design.  Then I sponged more Soft Suede ink along all the edges and shaped the cones with my mat and stylus.  I die-cut the ice cream scoops in the three colors of cardstock and then sponged around the edges with the matching colored inks.  I added some bling on top of the scoops.

I printed off the sentiment onto my card front, adhered the cones and scoops using dimensionals and added a knot of twine to finish things off.  Fun and easy card!

Here's a close-up of the ice cream cones:
