YouTube Live REPLAY – Crafting with Liz Yuille – Today we are using the Sweet Ice Cream Suite. I had such a good time on yesterday’s YouTube Live. It was literally the first time I had used any of the products from the Sweet Ice Cream Suite. Why did I wait so long?
How can you not love a Suite that gives you so many options. There is actually no need to stamp if you don’t want to, simply use the punch instead, which is what I did on my first card. The only stamping is the Sentiment, yet we have a three layer Ice Cream Cone, complete with Sprinkles (more on those later!) The paper is simply layered onto the front of the card base and trimmed to length. The strips on either side are more Designer Series Paper with Tear & Tape on the back, trimmed to half the width of the tape. I love this technique, it stops bulk under the layers of paper.
I simply punched the shapes from the Designer Series Paper and added them to the card front with Multi Purpose Liquid Adhesive. The top (pistachio) scoop has a couple of Dimensionals at the top for some added dimension. The Sprinkles are added with the same adhesive. Now, in the UK these are NOT Sprinkles, these are Hundreds and Thousands, but as Stampin’ Up! call them Sprinkles, I will have to simply accept it! But they will always be Hundreds and Thousands to me.
Which is why I am, almost, comfortable to add the ‘With Sprinkles on Top’ sentiment on the inside of the card with Petal Pink, Pool Party and Bumblebee Sprinkles on top!
My second card uses the cone punch to make bunting. I punched Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Pool Party, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam scraps and then stamped these with tone on tone ink. As we don’t have a Purple Posy ink pad, I used second generation Highland Heather, which works well.
The bunting is layered onto the Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo, simply added to the back of the White layer with sticky tape. I added a small amount of Liquid Adhesive to the middle of the Twine and held it in place with a block, so the twine had that nice curve. The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather and then layered onto an area of Designer Series Paper strips, with some Playing with Patterns Resin Dots to finish it off.
I hope you enjoy the projects. The Video Tutorial, which includes how to prepare your photopolymer stamps, is further down the page. Remember to Subscribe to my YouTube Channel and ‘Like’ the video while you are there.
