So many stamp sets, so little time! It was a hard choice but I decided on the Cool Treats Bundle for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #447.
Here's what I came up with using the Cool Treats Bundle and the CCMC sketch.
I used the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP . If you receive a card from me using this paper especially if it is a design with the glossy images please know that you are very special. The hardest decision I had to make was what to use in the upper left hand corner. Finally, I decided on ribbon but I did not have anything that was just perfect so I cut a piece of the 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon in Watermelon Wonder in half and tied it into a knot. The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments set.
Here's how I made the ice cream. I inked the solid image in Watermelon Wonder ink and stamped it off once and then stamped it on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I inked up the swirl image in VersaMark ink and then into the Watermelon Wonder ink and then stamped it over the solid image. I sprinkled my custom mix of Clear Embossing Powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (start with 1 part embossing powder and 1 part glitter) over it and then heat embossed it. Isn't the ice cream cone fabulous? The die both cuts out the cone and embosses the design. I cut the cone out in Delightful Dijon card stock. I added some sequins from the Sprinkles Embellishments, Pear Pizzaz star enamel shapes, and rhinestones.
Here's a little peek of the inside of the card. I used a strip of the Tasty Treats DSP and another sentiment from the Suite Sentiments set.
