Ice Cream Anyone?

Oh how I wish I could eat ice cream! It never bothered me
as a kid, but as an adult - it's a different story! As a kid
it was a fun summertime treat to go to Dairy Queen for an
ice cream after a particularly hot day.

Could you imagine an ice cream cone with 9 scoops on it?

I combined 3 challenges for this card. 
 Just Add Ink - color challenge
Pile it On - Hot Fun in The Summertime
CAS on Sunday - embossing

I kept the card really simple so as to keep the focus on 
the ice cream. I stamped the sentiment with the Tip Top Taupe
color and them heat embossed it with some clear embossing 
powder. I love that stuff! It lets you have embossing powder
in all your colors of ink!
I added some wink of stella glitter pen to the ice cream - trying
to make it look cold. It's much more effective in person than
in the pic - I really want some ice cream!

  1. I was out with my children yesterday and even though it was only about 8 degrees (celcius) we still stopped for an ice cream and I had a double scoop of Apricot....was so good!! This looks fantastic and love how you used the challenge colours. The scoops are perfectly balanced and all that white space is fabulous. So glad you joined us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. I love that wibbly-wobbly pile of ice-cream. Don't we all wish you could pile it that high! Such a good sense of balance in this card too - it's fantastic.

  3. Wow! What a fantastic tall pile of ice cream! Such a fun use of the challenge colours Susan and I love the clean and crisp look of your card. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  4. Ahh the lure of a magnificent tower of ice cream! Such a fun idea Susan. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  5. Love all these scoops of ice cream - what a fun card. Thanks so much for joining us this time at the Pile it On challenge, Elizabeth (DT)

  6. What a great, fun, card Susan! The giant icecream looks delightful, and I love the font of the sentiment. Lovely use of our challenge colours; thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.
