Life is Better...With Ice Cream!

Hi Friends!

Happy Saturday!  It is my turn to share on the ArtisticOutpost blog and I wanted to share this fun Mixed Media card with all of you as well!

I designed this card using the Ice Cream Shoppe stamp set from Artistic Outpost by Our Daily Bread Designs.

I wanted to play along with a few of my favorite online challenges so I incorporated the TGIF! #72 Sketch Challenge along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS246 Color Challenge into the design.

I hope you have a chance to visit us at the Artistic Outpost blog as well as the other challenge galleries – wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Die cut and emboss the light blue piece of paper from the ODBD Boho Bolds Paper Pad with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and “distress” the die cut with ink using the Smakin’ Acetate Technique (I used a clear envelope, applied ink from water-based markers- Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum, spritzed lightly with water, closed the acetate and” smooshed “ the ink around, re-opened and placed the white light blue die cut into the ink).

Once the ink dries, mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim close to the edge and adhere to the black card base.

To create the center panel, use the same color markers as above for the Smakin’ Acetate technique with white cardstock.

Once the ink has dried, apply crackle texture paste with a circle stencil (allow the paste to dry), die cut and emboss the panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangle Dies and mount onto a piece of black cardstock (die cut and embossed with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies).

Add the 1” black satin ribbon strip (wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel) and mount the panel onto the card front with dimensional foam.

 Die cut and emboss three circles from the ODBD Boho Bolds Paper Pad for the outer frame with the ODBD Pierced Circle Dies and die cut and emboss white cardstock with the ODBD Circles Dies for the inner circles.

Stamp the Ice Cream Shoppe cone images onto white cardstock with archival black ink, color with the same water-based markers used in the first few steps and apply shimmer with a clear glitter pen.

Fussy-cut the ice cream cone images, mount onto black cardstock and fussy-cut again.
Adhere the three circles to the card front, add the looped silver metallic thread and mount the ice cream cones with dimensional foam.

Finish off the card by stamping the sentiment from the Ice Cream Shoppe onto white cardstock with archival black ink, hand trimming the sentiment and mounting onto black cardstock and adding the sentiment to the card front along with a few silver sequins.  

I hope I have inspired you to pull out your stamps this weekend and have fun!! 

Thanks again for stopping by- Hugs and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!!
