It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players! This week the talented Jaydee has a fabulous theme challenge for us: Summertime! To me, nothing screams summer like ICE CREAM! So I pulled out the Mouthwatering stamp set and some retired Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper and set about preparing my triple scoop mouthwatering delight! This paper version has zero calories! Enjoy!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: A Sweet Summer CardThis finished card measures 4-1/4" wide by 5-1/2" long.
- Fun colors! Summertime and fun colors go hand-in-hand. A Lucky Limade card base coupled with a Calypso Coral mat anchors a whimsical, multicolored pattern!
- Yummy for your tummy! Scoops of ice cream were created with Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight inks, while the Soft Suede waffle cone was zipped through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Basic Pearls adorn the cone and Dazzling Diamonds add sparkle to the ice cream. The cherry-on-top receives its extra shine from Crystal Effects.
- A cute sentiment! What could be better for a fun sentiment than "just for fun" from the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set. Banner snip one end and tuck it under a Pool Party Seam Binding Bow, and one sweet little sentiment is complete!
How Did She Do That?
Isn't that frame under the ice cream cone cute? I zipped Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with an Apothecary Accents Framelit. Next, I traced around the outer edge of this same framelit on Calypso Coral card stock, and snipped it out. The two layer perfectly!
Ann to the Rescue!

(Just a note about Brody: We take him to the vet tomorrow morning, Monday. Instead of having one more bump checked out, he is having two checked out. We found another Saturday evening. Hopefully these two will just be fatty tumors or cysts. Of course, we will have them biopsied. I will definitely keep you informed. I am so appreciative of all of your emails. Your loving and kind thoughts are helping me through this difficult time...)
