It’s a summer favorite.  Doesn’t the sound of the ice cream truck bring back fond memories?  Well I took one look at What’s Your Type and thought, “there’s an ice cream cone.”  I’m sure on another day this set will say something else to me — in fact it screams versatility.  But back to the ice cream – yumm!

I started with colors because I was determined to use some Flowerpot designer paper today.  You see when I opened my order, it was in the box.  I hadn’t ordered it.  Well, yes I had.  I just meant to order washi tape instead.  The numbers are very similar.  This happens to me on occasion when I’m really excited.  So, I decided to use it as a creative challenge.  Today’s challenge was to use the first bit of the designer paper.

I really liked this design with it’s colors and geometric design.  It looks fresh and summery.

My ice cream flavors, I mean colors, were chosen to coordinate.  I used Crisp Cantaloup on the solid scoop and Strawberry Slush on the striped scoop.  The shapes/scoops were punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.

A cherry was added to the top scoop by punching a half inch circle and adding Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.  I used the same 1/2 inch circle punch to nip the sides of the focal layer.

A cone in Soft Suede was added along with a few sequins from the new In Color  Sequin Assortment.  After adding Stampin’ Dimensionals under the focal layer, ice cream scoops and cherry, I tied on a twist of Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloup Thick Bakers Twine.

We need to have an ice cream party.
