How adorable is this set, you guys?! I’m dying over here. I knew right away I wanted to make a monster of an ice cream cone (inspired by the giant eyes of my children at our local creamery) and I wanted as many flavors/colors as possible on my cone!

And this card of course had to use the “here’s the scoop” sentiment and I embossed it in black to make it pop on top of all the colors.

And finally, I popped that whole panel up on top of the latest gorgeous bold borders dies. These border dies are so much fun and really take your card up a notch.

My second card really shows off the Bold Borders die and you can see exactly why it’s called “Shine.” I used Vintage Jadeite cardstock (which reminds me of a sorbet color).

The sentiment is an offset in Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian.

And finally this ice cream cone was created using the faux sprinkles from the previously released Shakers and Sprinkles set (still available! click link below!). I covered the whole scoop in the sprinkles and I LOVE how it turned out! πŸ™‚

And last but not least I used the Big Ice Cream Cone die to create this modern ice cream card.

I created the black watercolor stripes for a bold background and to accent the sentiment.

My second project shows a more dramatic approach with color.

The sentiment and accents are embossed on a dark background for maximum effect.

And my last project shows a light an airy card for the clean and simples out there. πŸ˜‰

I used the center of the Mix & Mat die to create a stencil out of thick cardstock and then used texture paste to add a bit of a snow effect.
