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! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

    I used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog (page 49) for this fun birthday card. The bundle includes the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Ice Cream Builder Punch at a 10% discount when purchased together (item no. 156244). Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: largest scallop rectangle die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
    • True Love 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/2″ x 4″ (front panel and inside strip)
    • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 1 1/2” x 2” (ice cream scoop)
    • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock:  1 1/2″ x 2″ (ice cream scoop)
    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3″ x 2″ (ice cream cones)

    The Creating

    I began by coloring the white stripes in the True Love Designer Series Paper panel with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie Dark, Blackberry Bliss Light, and Bermuda Bay Light. I colored a 17″ piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Bermuda Bay Light Stampin’ Blend. I trimmed 1/4″ off the long edge of the panel. I adhered the panel to the card front and the strip to the inside bottom edge with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

    With the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, I punched two cones from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and an ice cream scoop from Bermuda Bay Cardstock and from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. With VersaMark Ink, I added the cross hatch image to the cones and the sprinkles to the Bermuda Bay ice cream scoop. I used Whisper White Craft Ink to add the sprinkles to the Blackberry Bliss ice cream scoop. I hit the images with the Heat Tool to ensure the ink was dry. I applied liquid glue across the top edge of the cones and topped with the ice cream scoops. I added Wink of Stella to the sprinkles for a little sparkle. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals (top) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (point of cone) to the backs of the cones.

    I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched So Sweetly panel with Tuxedo Black Ink and tied the colored ribbon around the panel with a bow. I popped the ice cream cones on over the ribbon and added the decorated die cut to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    With Bermuda Bay Ink, I stamped “Happy Birthday” on the inside of the card and an ice cream scoop on the front of the Basic White Medium Envelope. I masked the ice cream scoop and stamped the cone image in 2nd Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink and the crosshatch image in 1st Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink. I added the “Hope It’s Sweet” inside the card with Tuxedo Black Ink.

    Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card

    This card is made with the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog. It contains the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set is super cute, summery and includes images and well sized sentiments for the inside and outside of your cards. Enjoy!


    The Paper Cuts 

    • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1 3/4 (approx) die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies (front), two 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front and inside) and 5″ x 2″ (stamping)

    The Creating

    • With Flirty Flamingo Ink I stamped two ice cream scoops and three ice cream drips on the Basic White Cardstock. I also stamped the sentiments on the Stitched Rectangle die cut and inside panel. Then, I stamped the ice cream scoops on the inside panel and the envelope. These are masked and are second generation impressions (stamp off then on). TIPS: To make the mask I stamped the ice cream scoop on a scrap of computer paper and fussy cut it with my Paper Snips. To create the layers you start with the top image and go backwards…the top scoop first, the middle scoop second.
    • With Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the ice cream cones in second generation ink on the Basic White Cardstock, the inside panel (masking the ice cream) and the envelope. I added the crosshatch image in first generation ink to all.
    • I punched the two stamped ice cream scoops and the stamped cone with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I fussy cut the ice cream drips with Paper Snips.
    • To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Basic White panel (TIP: I cut the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die from the center of this panel to use on another project. No one will ever know!), the DSP panel, and the Stitched Rectangle die cut to the card front. I also used it to adhere the inside panel.
    • I adhered the punched ice cream cone with a glue dot at the point and liquid glue at the top. I adhered the two ice cream scoops together with liquid glue and then popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ice cream drips are added with Mini Glue Dots to slightly elevate them.
    • I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Flirty Flamingo Dark Stampin’ Blend and added them to the card front. I used Wink of Stella to add a line of sparkle to the lower edges of the ice cream scoops.
