Hey all! I’m up for a featured post and I am alllllllllll about the ice cream today! 😉
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! 🙂
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.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! We will see you all the rest of this week for more fun new product introductions!
Hey friends! Welcome to one of the new weekly features with Papertrey Ink: Throwback Thursdays! Today, Melissa, Keeway and I are revisiting the Doodlie-do stamp and die set and showing you new, fresh ideas on how to use it. I hope you find some inspiration along the way!
I started out by stamping the 5 petalled flower onto watercolor paper in 5 different ink colors. Then I used a wet paintbrush and a bit of additional ink to color in the entire flower. Once they were dry I stamped on top of them with black ink and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
I die cut the leaves from vellum and adhered all the flowers and vellum along the bottom and right edges. I finished the card off with a little bit of black paint splatter! I loved how vibrant the colors turned out against the white and black. This was such a fun stamp set to use… it really made me feel like summer is coming!! Now for some warm weather… 😉
