Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop! We’ve got a sketch challenge for you today and, being that we’re less than a week out from Christmas, I’d bet we get some Christmas cards! Be sure to check out everyone’s projects, okay?
Here’s the sketch…
I started by making a background for my card front, cuz…yea – I haven’t bought the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP! So had to make my own. I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the two sprinkles images from the Cool Treats stamp set in Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Tempting Turquoise. Then I double matted the panel on Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.
The middle panel is just a piece of Whisper White, with the addition of two strips of the Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape on two corners. I stamped the Cool Treats sentiment in Tempting Turquoise, matted the panel on a piece of Peekaboo Peach and SNAILd it to the card front.
My circle decoration is a stack from a scalloped edge circle of Watermelon Wonder and a straight edge circle of Peekaboo Peach. Both were cut with the Layering Circles Framelits. Finally, I adhered a new Lace Doily with the white side up, using some Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.
Then it was time to make some ice cream! I cut everything with the Frozen Treats Framelits dies – which you’ll be able to get bundled with the Cool Treats stamp set and save yourself 10%! My ice cream scoops are cut from Tempting Turquoise (blueberry??), Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach. Then I cut some hot fudge because….fudge!…from Chocolate Chip card stock and adhered it to the ice cream scoops with Liquid Glue. This framelits set is so fun – it even has a little die to cut sprinkles – so I did – in the same colors as the ice cream. I adhered each little sprinkle with Liquid Glue.
For the bowl – I laid several strips of Crumb Cake Washi Tape on Whisper White (remember – no DSP!) – and cut the bowl shape with the framelit. I used Liquid Glue to adhere my fudged-up ice cream behind the bowl and then popped the sundae onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped a Cool Treats cherry in Real Red on Whisper White and cut it with the Frozen Treats Framelits cherry die – then I used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the stem and stuck it on top (where a cherry belongs!). Finally, and I cut a teensy spoon from Silver Foil and stuck it in the bowl.
To finish the front off, I stamped a Real Red strawberry and cut it with its Framelit – which also punches tiny holes to make “seeds”! I added some leaves with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape across the front…
