I Scream, You Scream...

Evening all!

I'm a little late in posting today as I completely forgot to schedule my post last night and had to wait til I came home from work, so here it is.
It's friday again and time for another challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog!
I really enjoyed seeing all your handmade flowers over the past fortnight but we're up to I and the lovely Roxx chose the fantastically fun theme of...

I for Ice Cream!

How cool is that??!!  Sorry, couldn't resist the pun! lol!

So here's my card:

I made a twisted easel card and used the base of the card as an ice-cream cone.  I used my scorboard to add the embossed pattern of the cone.  I then die-cut 3 different coloured circles out of card for the ice-cream - I embossed the mango flavoured scoop with a cuttlebug folder and heat embossed around the edges of the mint flavoured scoop.  The raspberry flavoured scoop looked yummy just as it was.  And a charm was added as the cherry on top!


The papers are Pink Petticoat Pinstripes in Sassy and the sentiments are Kraftin Kimmie - I snipped the rubber between the words so as I could curve the phrase around the circle and I stamped it with versamark for a watermark effect.  The other one is stamped with a chalk ink.

I used a Stampin' Up! pendant punch and the smallest spellbinder circle die to cut out the shapes for the smaller cones.  I added some of my ancient peel-offs for the wording.

The inside uses the same elements and a place to write your own message.

You'll see lots more fantastic ice-cream themed inspiration from the rest of the DT on the Alphabet Challenge Blog - I can't wait to see your entry! :P
