Stampin' Celebration #35


What an exciting week over at Stampin' Celebration! With a new blog design, blog candy, and TWO new members on the Design Team, there's a lot to celebrate! A warm welcome to Marlene Peters over at Hands On and Cori Kozak over at My Creative Chat.  Both are very talented stampers, so go check out their blogs!  I'm excited for the opportunity to work with them on the design team!   


Now back to the challenge this week. . . . I liked the bright colors, and it reminded me of a summer birthday party, and for some reason ice cream.  :-)  I used the cupcake 'frosting' shape from my new Build a Cupcake punch (from the Occasions Mini Catalog) to create the ice cream scoops.  The cherry also comes from the same punch.  The So Saffron and Chocolate Chip layers are from the Play Date Designer Series Paper pack.  I took my Smooch Illuminate Pearlized Top Coat and added a little bit of glitter around the edges of the ice cream scoops and on the cherry.  

I hand-cut the triangle for the cone, and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used my Cutter Kit to add distressing to the edges of the Wild Wasabi layer, and then tied around the Linen Thread.  The sentiment is from the set Crazy for Cupcakes.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see the projects the other Design Team members have created.  And then play along with us--you'll definitely want to this week as there is awesome Blog Candy for those who are chosen as this week's "Pick of the Party"--formerly known as the Top 3.  :-)  Have a great week!

Paper:  Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, and Play Date DSP

Thanks for sharing the versatility of the cupcake punch (which I'm now ordering) along with this yummy card! Ice cream worked for me.......it screams "birthday party".
