Create an.... Ice Cream?

Last Tuesday I may have uttered the words "tomorrow I'll show you..."  Well life was rather selfish and got in the way of my crafting plans.  Hopefully some normality will return now.  I'll pick up where I left off and show another use for the Cupcake Builder Punch which will be retired at the end of April.  Sad face.  I love using the cupcake stamps and punch and am planning a bit of a cupcake fest to sell at our village gala!

Again, not a cupcake today, but instead an ice cream...

The three scoops (the more the better in my book) are all the icing part of the Builder punch, with the cone run through my Big Shot with my lattice embossing folder, as is the pink matting layer.  Don't you think the embossing looks like a wafer?!  And do you like the card I made my base from?  It's Naturals Ivory and has little tiny speckles in it that remind of that really nice vanilla ice cream which still has the vanilla bits in it. Mmm....

The sentiment is stamped is Soft Suede to match the scoop of chocolate ice cream (should have used Chocolate Chip really, Suede not being the most edible substance ever!), attached in a banner shape with a button from my odd button tin and some twine.  Now I do love a bit of bakers' twine - just makes me think of summer - and if you love it too, keep watching this space!

Mmmm makes me hungry just looking at it!

Stamps: Create a Cupcake
Ink: Soft Suede
Card: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla (of course), Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Naturals Ivory, Crumb Cake
Other: Bakers twine, button, Big Shot, lattice embossing folder, marker for cherry stalk, dimensionals

There are some great challenges on at the moment which I'm trying to make time to enter.  If you're out of the blogging loop for a while, it's hard to catch up!  Anyway, I'd like to enter this into the CR84FN colour challenge where they are looking for medium pink, tan and cream combinations.

Right, I have a hungry cat who wants his lunch, not to mention his hungry servant.  I wonder if we have any ice cream in the freezer...

Thanks for visiting! Take care,
