Sweet Products Retiring Soon

Sweet Products Retiring Soon

Welcome! Today I’m sharing some Cool Treats that will be retiring when the 2017–2018 Annual Catalog is released on June 1, 2017.

Global Design Project GDP087

Today’s card is inspired by Global Design Project #GDP087, a Theme Challenge and the theme is Cooking, Baking & Making.

The card base is Delightful Dijon cardstock layered with a sponged piece of Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper. This paper is unique in that it includes pre-embossed designs. Sponging a gradient of Delightful Dijon and Tip Top Taupe ink reveals the design by resisting the embossing.

The next layer is a gold foil sprinkled piece from Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper. Isn’t this just perfect for the ice cream cones? Speaking of those cones, each is cut with Tip Top Taupe cardstock and the ice cream from Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Each cone was also stamped in a different way to show off three styles you can try.

Next time you’re experimenting with stamping, try these methods

  • Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink is mostly opaque, but it is interesting to see how the color changes with this special formula
  • Versamark Ink creates a subtle watermark image when stamped on cardstock
  • Tone on Tone is when you use ink over the same color cardstock

I embossed the sentiment on Basic Black cardstock and cut it out with Layering Circles Framelits Dies. That is layered on top of Watermelon Wonder cardstock cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stampin’ Dimensionals raises the sentiment a bit from the card. Sprinkles Embellishments add an appropriate touch to the card.

I hope you enjoyed the card today. Don’t forget to play along with our theme challenge at Global Design Project.
