Mouthwatering: Sketch Challenge

Good evening friends!  I hope you're all staying dry and haven't started to float away with all the rain we're having.  We were so happy that the most of the day yesterday was beautiful as we were able to get to all our events and complete our errands so today we just chilled out, including some much needed stamp time.  For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I decided I definately wanted to embrace something summery and cheery.  Since we only have until the end of the month to enjoy some of the fabulous products in the Occasions Mini catalog I definately didn't want to miss out.  This card uses the Mouthwatering stamp set and Sweet Shop DSP.  The cardbase is Pool party and I used the yummy ice cream print from the Sweet Shop DSP which was matted with a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.  For all the layers I used the ticket corner punch to add a little detail.  Next I wrapped a piece of Luckly Limeade ruffled ribbon around the piece and added a bow tied with the same ribbon with one of the Sweet Shop Jelly Bean brads in the center. 

Next I used the Mouthwatering stamp set and colored directly on the rubber with Stampin' Write markers to add all the colors for the ice cream cone, this piece was matted with a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  The greeting is from the On Your Birthday stamp set (which is retiring at the end of May) and was punched out with the word window punch and matted with the modern label punch.   The final touch was adding three silver brads in the top right corner (using the paper piercer and mat pack made lining up the brads a breeze.)  Now check out the sketch we were provided, pretty cool.

This card was so fun and I can taste the ice cream and I'm definately looking forward to the warmer weather and all the great things about summer.  I made several other projects with this same stamp set today and I'll be sharing them all week, so stay tuned.

Have a great week!
