Ice Cream Truck Stand Up Card

Ice Cream Truck Stand Up Card

Hello!

Here is the fourth card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” I just love this cute ice cream truck and wanted to use some beautiful spring colors. I love the colors in the card. It makes me so happy!

I stamped the ice cream truck image on Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my alcohol markers and then die cut it with the matching IceCreamTruck2Stamp dies. The ice cream cones were stamped on the same cardstock and colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly2Stamp stamps and matching dies. Using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, I used Spectrum Sparkle markers to color across the page starting with the first color and then adding the next color. Once the cardstock was colored, I stamped the image onto the colored cardstock and then die cut the image out.  I also used the small flower in the die set to die cut several flowers from the same paper colored in Spectrum Sparkle markers.  A dot of morning dew crystal drops was placed in the center of each flower. A similar Spectrum Sparkle technique can be found here: https://youtu.be/syV-gRm6u1A

Ice Cream Elf

Elf Ice Cream Card

Hello!

Here is the third card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” For this card, I wanted to use a stamp set that wouldn’t normally be used for an ice cream card. This time, I used the Elves2Stamp stamp.  I stamped the image on Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my alcohol markers and then die cut it with the matching Elves2Stamp die.

The miniature ice cream cones are from the IceCream2Stamp and were stamped onto the same cardstock and colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers. To get the double scoop of ice cream on the cones in the elf’s hand, I stamped the cone image a few times and fussy cut only the ice cream portion of the stamp two times and then layered the ice cream scoops on top of each other. Since the elf’s hands can open, I placed two ice cream cones in his hands.

The card base was die cut with the Sizzix Framelits Flip-Its by Stephanie Barnard (660714) using Banana cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Hello Friend Collection. The sentiment “for someone sweet” is also from the same patterned paper pad. The blue polka dot paper in the center was cut with a stitched rectangle die.

The Happy Birthday sentiment in the inside of the card is a stamp from the Foxes2Stamp stamp set. The “Calories don’t count on holidays” is from a stamp set from the BananaSplit2Stamp stamp set.

Mason Jar Ice Cream Card

Ice Cream in a Mason Jar

Mason Jar Ice Cream Card

Hello!

I was asked by Kristin Shew Bost, a design team member for The Stamps of Life, to host another weekly challenge in The Stamps of Life Facebook Fan Group. The topic of the weekly challenge is “ice cream.” This challenge was perfect for me! For those of you who know me, you know how much I LOVE ice cream!!!

I made four cards and will be posting them on separate blog posts.

For this card, I decided to put ice cream in a mason jar!

One thing I love about The Stamps of Life stamp and die sets is that you don’t always have to use the stamp set and then color it in. For this card, I only used the die set for BananaSplit2Stamp. I ran the dies through the die cut machine using different solid and patterned paper and then glued the pieces together to form the ice cream scoops. I did, however, use both the stamp and matching die set for the mason jar and spoon from Jar2Stamp. Those were both stamped, die cut, and then colored with Copic markers.

I used the Ocean solid cardstock to make an A2 size card base. Then adhered a scalloped rectangle on top using the Guava solid cardstock, followed by a smaller scalloped rectangle from a  piece of patterned paper from the Hooray patterned paper pad. The Sweet sentiment was cut with Grape cardstock for the shadow layer and Ocean cardstock for the top layer. The sentiment on the inside of the card is also from the Sweet sentiment pack.

Ocean Themed Pop Up Box Card

Ocean Pop Up CardHello! Today I’m featuring an ocean-themed pop up box card that I made for my son’s birthday.  He will be 11 on June 11. I used the brand new stamp set from The Stamps of Life which just came out this month called Dolphins2Stamp. It was perfect for my ocean-themed card! My son is taking scuba diving lessons with his dad so I thought that an ocean-themed birthday card would be a perfect fit!

Hello!

On my blog today I’m featuring a card I made using Stamp Anniething’s Lemonade Stand bundle. This company is new to me. I first saw them at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Orlando, Florida on May 17, 2019. Their stamps are amazing! I picked up the Lemonade Stand bundle which includes a stamped doll image and many other stamps and die cuts to go along with it. Check out my video which shows everything that is included in the bundle and the process for which I made the card. Enjoy!
