sweet ice cream * paper piecing

Hi there, Nicole here with a sugar sweet summer card.

Let's have a look at the Your Favorite Ice Cream stamp set from the upcoming July release. đŸ˜€

I wanted to use a technique I like but always forget: Paper Piecing. It's a fun method that is perfect to use your patterned paper scraps. And of course I wanted to play with one of the upcoming products from the July release.

  • stamp the cone on some craft paper, color it with colored pencils and cut it out
  • stamp the scoops of ice cream on some patterned paper and cut them out along the black lines
  • do some ink blending with Distress Ink, a stencil and a blending tool to create a soft background
  • glue the first two scoops of ice cream to the white card base and adhere the third one with foam tape for a little dimension
  • heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder on vellum
  • cut the sentiment strip to the size you like and add it to the panel with staples
  • add a finishing touch with enamel stickers

Paper Piecing is a fun way to add color to your stamped images without an actual coloring process.

Originally I had planned to use the kraft paper as my background, but I didn't like the look. It was kind of dark and not the fresh summer look I was going for. Sometimes the card itself leads you to the finished project. :-)

Your Favorite Ice Cream - this stamp set will be available on Friday, July 19th 2019.

Only a few days left and the July release will be available on July 19th.
