More Ice Cream Please!

That's right, I've got another 'Mouthwatering' card to share with you today. I sure hope this set makes it into the next catalog. I've made several bright and happy birthday cards with it. Only problem with working with this stamp is that I keep getting this powerful urge to grab the carton of ice cream in the freezer and make a pig of myself! Did anybody else hear that little oink in the background? Anyway, this card uses the Stamping 411 Sketch for last Saturday that you can see here. Hope this fits with your ice cream cravings...

Stamps: Mouthwatering and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Soft Suede, and Red Glimmer Paper, with Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Soft Suede pad, and Calypso Coral, Real Red, and Soft Suede markers
Accessories: Owl Builder Punch, Brads & Ribbon from Sale-a-bration

Yes, I know Sale-a-bration is past, but I've got some extra ribbon and brads and they go with these colors so perfectly. Besides, the card is for a friend that loves bright, fun cards so it was just the right accessories to use. It was really hard to cover the backside of the DSP, because the rows of cupcakes look so yummy, but again, this side with all the cherries worked better for what I had in mind for this card.

I admit I changed the dimensions of the sketch card a bit, but don't I usually? This is a really great sketch that I'll probably use often. I love going back and using the same sketch and seeing how totally different the card can look. It's all about the stamps and colors you choose and how you put them together. The possibilities are endless.

Well, thanks for stopping by on this chilly, blustery day. My daughter and I were out running errands together with the kids. If it was nicer out, we had planned on a stop at the DQ. But the weather wasn't cooperating today. Oh, well. There's always another day to get some ice cream! Hope you have a great week. Make time for stamping - it's fun! Sharon
