A Sweet Celebration

After being out of town visiting family it was nice to be back stamping. While we had so much fun I couldn't wait to continuing playing with all the great new items from the Summer Mini Catalog and decided to use the Sweet Scoops Stamp Set for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.
The stamped image has three ice cream cones stamped with Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Real Red and Close to Cocoa inks. I used the grain print stamp to add texture to the Tempting Turquoise scoops and Sprinkles in Real Red. To make the sprinkles really pop, I used Crystal Effects to attach some large Red Beads. I used the Pink Flamingo DSP along the bottom of the stamped image and wrapped a piece of 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon on the seam. This was then matted on Real Red cardstock before adding it to the Tempting Turquoise card base.
The greeting is stamped with Chocolate chip ink and offset with 3 small flowers I punched out using the same Pink Flamingo DSP and the Trio Flower Punch.

I really love how this card turned out, just like I had pictured it. This is such a fun set and think you'll love it too. Make sure to RSVP for next weekends Stamp-a-stack as this will be one of cards we make.

Have a great week!
