Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. It is a clean and simple card with cardstock, ink and a little fussy cutting. Don’t worry, it’s quick and easy fussy cutting! Enjoy!

The popsicle colors were inspired by the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge: SSC263 BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS. This week is a color challenge requiring a minimum of 3 colors from the graphic below and a neutral of choice. I chose Soft Succulent, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Blackberry Bliss and Garden Green with Soft Suede as my neutral. Why not use them all?

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4 3/4″ x 3 5/8″ (stamped front panel) and 4″ x 3 1/2″ (fussy cutting)
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 5″ x 3 7/8″
  • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ (front panel)

The Creating

The popsicles are made with 4 stamps: the bottom half (straight edge), the top half (rounded edge), the scattered dots image and the popsicle stick. I stamped a row of popsicles across the Basic White front panel in Real Red Ink, Blackberry Bliss Ink and Garden Green Ink. The popsicle sticks are in Soft Suede Ink. Tip: It’s not hard to line the stick up on the popsicle since the stamps are clear, but I did make a mask to ensure I got the popsicle stick the same length and in the same location since the popsicles are in a row. On the Basic White for fussy cutting I stamped a popsicle in Soft Succulent Ink and in Pumpkin Pie Ink along with the Happy Birthday Sentiment in Soft Suede Ink. I fussy cut them with my Paper Snips.

On the inside of the card I stamped a popsicle in Real Red Ink and the Treat Yourself sentiment in Soft Suede. I stamped a popsicle in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the front of the envelope.

I adhered the cardstock layers to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I popped the two fussy cut popsicles on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tip: Cut a strip from the edge of the Stampin’ Dimensionals for the popsicle sticks. The fussy cut sentiment has a Stampin’ Dimensionals under the “B” and liquid glue on either side. A few Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added with the putty tip of the Take Your Pick Tool.

      This card is the perfect summer “treat”! I love the sentiment over the fun images — a great way to set off the wishes. Thanks for sharing on Sunday Stamps this week.
