Stampin’ Up! Artisan Cool Treats!

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday to you.  Hope you’ve got a great weekend ahead of you!

My card for today uses the Cool Treat bundle and a little bit of Tasty Treats Specialty DSP to make a fun little card that’d be good for any special day for a special friend.  Take a look-see:

My sketch is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge – I just turned it on its side.

And the color scheme is from The Card Concept.

I started by SNAILing two pieces of Tasty Treats Specialty DSP to Pear Pizzazz card stock and then I SNAILd the smaller panel to the card front.

The sentiment, from Cool Treats, is two separate stamped images.  I stamped the first word in Pear Pizzazz on a Whisper White panel.  Then the second word is stamped in Pool Party – easy to line up, since this is a photopolymer stamp set.  Then I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat.

Next I made my artisan ice cream cone.  This isn’t ice cream you’re going to get at the grocery store.  This is boutique ice cream!  I stamped two scoops on Whisper White – one in stamped-off-once Pear Pizzazz (I suspect this is Mojito flavor) and one in Pool Party (Daiquiri Ice – yes, I have a cocktail theme going on here!).  Then I cut them both out with the matching die in the Frozen Treats Framelits.  The cone is cut from a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the ice cream onto the cone.

I made some gourmet “sauce” by cutting it from some Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, then I adhered it to the top scoop.

Since this is a grown-up ice cream cone, I decided it needed some edible flowers sprinkled on top.  I stamped one in Pear Pizzazz and two in Pool Party – these little flowers are from the Jar of Love stamp set.  Since I didn’t want any white on them, I just went ahead and fussy cut them.  Then I adhered the Pool Party flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the Pear Pizzazz flower on with a little piece of Stampin’ Dimensional.  I finished them off with a tiny Pearl Basic Embellishment.

I adhered the cone to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue, then popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a little bow made with a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.

On the inside, I stamped a Pool Party ice cream scoop in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Then I stuck a sticky note mask over top, and stamped the cone dish in Crumb Cake.  The sentiment, also from the Cool Treats stamp set, is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and embellished with a Pool Party flower from Jar of Love.  And, I added another little pour of Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Daiquiri Ice scoop and cup, complete with Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper sauce, plus some Pool Party flowers on the front…

…and the envelope flap got some more of the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.

Et Voila!  I think the quiet color scheme helped the Cool Treats bundle create a very grown-up ice cream card for a special someone! Hope you like!

I own a guard dog.

He’s got baggy pantaloons.

He’s a little bit goofy (don’t know how that happened – I specified Not Goofy).

He sheds.  Like crazy.

But.  I do believe he’d at least warn of impending doom.

The other day, as I was channeling Carol Brady Alice (let’s be real – I don’t think Carol knew the difference between a chuck roast and a salmon), Ree Drummond and June Cleaver – putting a pot roast in the oven in anticipation of Wayne’s return home, my goofball started barking and growling!  BIG dog barks and growls!

I went to see what the problem was, thinking it was the horses coming to the pond for a drink and splash.  But, no.  There were guys at our neighbors, with a skid steer and chain saw and riding lawn mowers.  They were wearing orange jackets.

And they were obviously suspect.

He realized it was going to take a while to adequately keep his eye on these potential bad guys.  Being the man of the house and all.  So he paced himself…

But, as with all things when you’re just a kid, interest was soon lost.  Mom was aware of the problem.  She was a pilot, you know.  She could probably handle a few guys in orange jackets…

A kid’s gotta eat! 🙂

  1. Ah, your post started my morning with a smile with the Finn Fix AND we have a clock that has a doo dad hanging from it that says, “Bar is Closed” on one side and “Bar is Open” on the other. With your luscious card, guess what the doo dad says…well, yes, but it’s an ice cream bar even though it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Lucky recipient! I can honestly say this was my least favorite stamp set but you took it to another level. Oh, that glimmer paper!! Great job on the challenges.

    • I confess it’s not at the top of my faves list, either – but it can really make some cute cards, huh? Glad that you liked this one, Karen! And that you were suitably impressed by the prowess of my guard dog! Thanks! 🙂

    Cool card! Love the colors, though I probably wouldn’t have thought of that scheme.

  3. Very cute, and I love your “sauce”. See you tomorrow 🙂

  4. That card is awesome Mary!! Love everything about it from the clean design to the color scheme. Perfectly created! And Ginny suddenly becomes guard dog extrodinaire when my husband is out of town too. She finds the pizza guy particularly suspect… 🙂

    • I was really happy with how it turned out! Need to tell Ginny that the pizza guy is definitely the GOOD guy!! Or – at least his pizza is acceptable! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  5. Kathleen VanDeVeere

    Good job with colors I would never have associated with such a tempting treat!
    Guard dog par excellence. I think MY guard dog relies on my shotgun. 😕

    • Well…I suspect the extent of his guarding is letting me know that I need to get the shotgun! 🙂 Thanks, Mom! 🙂

    Love your take on creating a yummy gourmet ice cream cone …. your glimmer paper topping and pretty flowers add wonderful pizzazz! Finn and our collie must be related; they share so many of the same traits …. baggy pantaloons, shed like crazy and being a sentinel to let us know about all the “bad guys” who come into view. LOL

    Ooh, I love your color palette. Such a pretty card! And I got my Finn Fix, too. Have a great weekend! -Ellie

  8. I love your card! Great idea to turn the sketch on its side, and I love the colors. The stamp set is so fun!

  9. I love how you’ve dressed up this sweet cone! And your flavors sound delicious. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
