Pink Pirouette Ice Cream

With the hot weather we love to have ice why not make an ice cream card!!!....which really makes me want to have an ice cream cone.
Using a brayer, I inked the new Stripes embossing folder with Choc Chip ink and put a piece of V. Vanilla cs inside and embossed, leaving a Choc Chip stripped background on the V.Vanilla for the ice cream to sit on.
I used the new Perfect Pennants Bigs Die to cut the cone and embossed it in the square Lattice embossing folder to make the waffle look, then inked with a sponge and S. Suede ink for extra texture.
The Pink Pirouette ribbon is retired, but I really thought it went with the stripped background.

Hello Ink Resist

The new Stampin Up catalog is full of new ideas.  If you don't have a copy take a look HERE  to see all the new goodies.
On this card I've used  a new set called My Friend, and En Francais BG.  Stamped the leaves with VersaMark pad and added clear embossing powder and heat set.  Stamped En Francais with a new in color calypso coral (2nd generation) over the embossed leaves.  I inked over the front with all new in colors, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, & Island Indigo, then stamped Hello with Island Indigo.  I love the look of embossed resist.  The card is made with Island Indigo cardstock.
If you live in the Fort McMurray area and would like to learn some of these techniques, I'd love to have you attend one of my classes.  Please contact me thru my email or phone #.
Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think.

Snow Much Fun

If you don't have a new Stampin Up catalog, you can take a look at it online HERE.  If you live in the Fort McMurray area and would like a copy please contact me thru my  Stampin Up website HERE.
This is one of the new Christmas sets called Snow Much Fun.  These snowmen are just so cute.  For the background cardstock I used Baja Breeze and stamped with Serene Snowflakes set using the Versamark and Whisper White pads.  Stamped the snowman unto W.White cs with E.Espresso ink, colored using Stampin Write Markers, and inked the edges with Baja Breeze.   Layered the snowman image unto Cherry Cobbler.  Put glue with the 2 Way glue pen over the snowman and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter.
Thanks for looking, please leave me a comment.
