CTS #180 + ATCAS #92: Stripes + HLS July Anything Goes with Dies

A couple of weeks ago I was one of the lucky winners of blog candy during the Paper Players 300th challenge celebration and included in the wonderful package that arrived from Colleen was a sweet Hero Arts ice cream die. It didn't take me long to start playing with it and I have a few different flavors of cones sitting on my desk waiting to be used.

CAS(E) This Sketch! 180, Happy Little Stampers July Anything Goes With Dies and Addicted to CAS #92 Stripes all helped me with the design decisions for this card.

An ancient open circle border die created the stripes on either side of the Avery Elle stamp for a sentiment panel. The ice cream cone is embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder and the ice cream edged with confetti stars before being popped up over the sentiment banner.

I was thinking of this as a strawberry or maybe cherry ice cream cone, but my daughter informed a pink this bright could only be bubbblegum flavored.


Thanks for stopping by,

  2. Such a SWEET card, Jacquie!!!! Love your cone that looks sooooooo yummy!!!!! (definitely not ice cream weather over here!!!!) Love that circles die and the fun little stars!!!! So cute!!!

  3. Great idea to use the border die in white to not distract from the main event - the ice cream cone, complete with sprinkles. Fun card, Jacquie.
