Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Bright Birthday Card

I used the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch from the May 2021 to April 2022 Annual Catalog to create this cool, birthday card. I’m craving cool since it’s been hot and humid here in North Alabama! Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), 4″ x 5 1/4″ (card front) and 4″ x 4 1/2″ (inside)
  • 2020 -2022 In Color Cardstock: an ice cream scoop punch from Just Jade, Bumblebee and Magenta Madness.
  • 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 1″ (front) and 4″ x 1/4″ (inside) in Just Jade, Bumblebee and Magenta Madness, the cone punch from Cinnamon Cider, and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ in Bumblebee (envelope)

The Creating

I placed the 3 ice cream scoop punches in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to give them the ice cream scoop texture. Then I sponged their edges with a Sponge Dauber in the matching ink pad color. I glued them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and placed Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.

I sponged the edge of the cone with Soft Suede Ink, stamped the sentiments on the front and inside panel, and added first and second generation sprinkles along the edges of the front panel and the inside of the card base.

To assemble, I adhered the DSP strips to the right edge of the front panel, the cone on the left and topped it with the raised ice cream scoops. So fun! I added the inside panel, inside DSP strips and the Bumblebee DSP to the envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess with my Paper Snips and embellished the card front with three Magenta Madness 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots (these are retired, so I have linked the new 2020-22 In Color Square Gems in case you don’t have them).

    Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Kraft Treat Box

    Happy Fourth of July to you and your family! I’m sharing a gift box that I made for a couple of friends who have their birthday today…while that’s cool to be born on Independence Day, I know they don’t want Red, White and Blue birthday packages. So here’s the little treat box I put together to celebrate them. I think these elegant Scallop Kraft Treat Boxes would also make great shower or wedding favor packaging. Enjoy!

    These boxes measure 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and come in two pieces…the scalloped lid and the bottom…in packs of 8.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Gold Foil Sheets: 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
    • Vellum Cardstock: 2″ x 3″ for second largest butterfly die cut from Brilliant Wings Dies.

    The Creating

    I adhered the Gold Foil square to the box top with Stampin’ Seal and added the Square Vellum Doily with four Mini Glue Dots. Next I added two 7″ strips of 3/8″ Fine Art Ribbon across the sides with glue dots. This helped hide the adhesive under the vellum and allows the lid to be removed without disturbing the decoration. There is also a glue dot under the ribbon where it hangs over the edge (the gold metallic in the ribbon makes it slightly rigid and the glue dot helped it drape over the side). I trimmed the ends of the ribbon at an angle with my Paper Snips. The bow is also added with a couple of glue dots.

    I cut the 2nd largest butterfly die from Brilliant Wings Dies from Vellum Cardstock with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I added three gold Metallic Pearls with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool to the body and attached it to the bow with glue dots. The final embellishment is three of the white Elegant Faceted Gems.

    Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!
