welcome back to day three of the papertrey ink march countdown and another peek at my soon to be released mini set, comfort food additions. today i decided to add a little flavor - ice cream flavors, that is! first up we have neapolitan. i stamped three carton diecuts with the colors shown, cut them up together so they matched and pieced the pieces i wanted back together - voila! a pint of neapolitan ice cream. a few elements from grunge me layered in matching colors behind the focal element provided just the right touch of cool, and really tied it all together. i scream, you scream, we all scream happy birthday!
how about a little mint chocolate chip? one of my personal favorite flavors! i created the bowl the same way i did when comfort food was released, using 2 bowl diecuts. i trimmed along the front rim of one, inked the back rim of the other, and stuck them together, sliding the ice cream circles and spoon in between the layers. the speckle stamp (still sitting on my desk from the first card!) was perfect for adding the chocolate chips, and a trio of leaves from beautiful blooms was a nice stand in for a sprig of mint. i scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream - congratulations!
and last, one of my daughter's old favorites, cotton candy! i thought it would be fun to create an ice cream cone for a change, so with a circle punch, snips, and the little dotted grid stamp from grunge me, i did just that. the speckle stamp came in handy again once again to create a mixed up pink & blue similar to the real thing. the end result is soft and sweet, great for a little one's birthday! i scream, you scream, we all scream hooray! happy birthday!
