ice cream party ensemble
This ensemble was so much fun to make! And honestly, pretty easy with the stamps and coordinating dies from JustRite Stampers and Samantha Walker!
These darling little ice cream cups were picked up at Michael’s on clearance at the end of last summer. They were not pretty. But by adding strips of patterned paper, much better! The little banners are a pretty touch too. And easy. Simply stamp the border onto cardstock. Then place the die template over the top, lining it up evenly (open dies help), and hold each end of the die template in place with low tack tape. Pass through your die cutting machine and adhere to the project.
Little wooden spoons! Nothing like customizing your spoons with stamps! Lots of ideas there…names, polka dots, hearts, happy birthday…
And the card. Where the whole ensemble began. I was looking at the stamps upside down. Just a little game I play when trying to come up with something creative. :) And I saw an ice cream cone. So, I took the pennant stamp and turned it into an ice cream cone and the buttons into the scoops of ice cream.
Hope you are inspired to have an ice cream party…as soon as the weather warms up! :) thanks for stopping by!
