Ice Cream Corner Blog Hop

 Hey Y'all!

I am joining other demonstrators from all over the globe to share with you what I think is one of the "coolest" suites available! I had so much fun creating these projects to share with you today.

The first card I am sharing is a shaker fact, when I saw this shaker technique, my mind was blown! 

The shaker element is a clear envelope! And it is so easy to do.  To make this type of shaker card, cut a piece of DSP to 3-3/4 x 5 and place inside the envelope along with the shaker pieces.  Seal the envelope, wrap around the edges of the DSP and adhere to the back.  Then adhere to your cardbase.

I used a Thick Basic White cardbase cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4, then added a Blackberry Bliss layer measuring 4 x 5-1/4. I adhered the shaker element to this layer, then wrapped some of the Blackberry Bliss ribbon around it before attaching to the cardbase. I punched a 2-1/4" Coastal Cabana circle and 2" Basic White that I stamped my sentiment on. I added the ice cream cone I had stamped and punched to finish off the card.

Tip: Create lighter shades of ink from the same ink pad by "stamping off" on a scrap piece of paper before stamping onto your project. This is how I stamped the scoops of ice cream, I stamped off first, then stamped the "dots" full strength.

I CASE'd the idea for this next project from another demonstrator, Breelin Renwick. It was so cute I just had to share the idea.

Mickey and Minnie Ice Cream Bars! 

I used DSP from this suite to create the shorts and bow (the bow is made from 2 die cut hearts from the Stitched Be Mine dies.) I also used one of these dies to create the scalloped edges.

Tip: The Take Your Pick tool was so handy to add those sprinkles! One of the tools in my craft room I wouldn't want to live without!

I added a gift card holder to the inside of the card...simply a 4 x 1-3/4 piece of DSP or cardstock and only put adhesive on 3 sides, leaving the top open to slide in a gift card...maybe one from their favorite Ice Cream Shop!

I hope I've given you some fun ideas for using this set, now make sure to hop through and see what everyone else is sharing!

I'm so glad you hopped by today! If you are from the US, don't currently have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and would like to purchase any of the products I've used, simply click on the images to go to my online store. I have used several products that are retiring and will no longer be available after May 3 or while supplies last...the Stitched Shapes Dies, the 2 Circle Punches, the Stitched Be Mine dies, and the Terra Cotta Tile cardstock and ink. So if you want these items, order soon so you don't miss out!
