Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold

Hello there… do you know what today? Besides Tue the 27th? It is one week until the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes LIVE…. which also means – it’s LESS THAN one week until the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Remember there are last chance products awaiting and that sale ends May 3.

Today’s card is one I am using in a class for today. Folks will be learning tips & tricks to create SIX fun folds. They won’t be fully creating all of them, not in two hours, but they will do the folds and adhering card stock & DSP then adding sticky notes so they can finish them at home. This particular group wanted a firehose version. We’ll see how it goes – it’s a LOT in that short a time!

Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold – #1

Above is the finished product. Here are two photos prior to decorating and with post-its.

I began with a standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Thick Basic White panel, scored at 4 1/4. I marked very lightly the 21/8 mark just where I wanted to die cut the circle. And of course, this doesn’t have to be a circle – it can be an oval or square or a diamond, but for this card, it’s a circle. With the marking I placed the Layering Circles die fairly close. to the right edge of the paper and placed it on the die cutting machine. In order to die cut just half the circle, place the top plate over the area to be die cut – and with the markings I knew just where that was. The neat part is, the machine will cut only where the top plate is 👍 Once removed from the machine, create the score line at 2 1/8, avoiding scoring the circle. Burnish the folds so they are mountain, valley – as shown. Now stamp and decorate!

Sweet Ice Cream Fun Fold – #4

This is the ‘inside’ of the card. There’s lots of room for the sender to write something personal, yet, when the card is closed, it won’t be seen.

  • The DSP is from the Ice Cream Corner DSP and can be found in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog. It is cut 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered with liquid glue.
  • The cone was created with more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP and using the Ice Cream Corner Builder Punch
  • Stamp the sentiments using the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay
  • Stamp the ‘sprinkles’ using Early Espresso ink
  • Add Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed gems and this portion is complete

The front of the card is already partially done – just the circle needs decorating. I stamped the popsicle in Mango Melody ink and Sahara Sand ink and added more of the Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed gems – and the card was done.

For the envelope I added more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP and the card was done – voila!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

Today’s card is bright and cheery (not that others haven’t been) and for our granddaughter who is turning 11 this next week. I kept trying to decide what kind of card to make when a Stampin’ Up! pre-order box arrived. This granddaughter loves ice cream with lots of sprinkles and very different flavors… therefore when you see the colors of the ice cream on the card, hopefully you’ll understand.

Sweet Ice Cream Birthday – #1

Isn’t this card full of fun colors? Here’s list of the products used…

  • * Sweet Ice Cream stamp set with coordinating Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch
  • * Ice Cream Corner DSP
  • Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • * Blending Brushes
  • Wink of Stella
  • Pool Part card stock (card base)
  • Whisper White card stock (inside)
  • Inks: Old Olive, Terracotta Tile, Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party and Tuxedo Black Memento

NOTE: those items with an * are new in the Jan – Jun 2021 Catalog and will be available Jan 5, 2021

How to create this card…

  • Cut card base – for this card I used pool Party card stock.
  • Die cut with the largest die in the Rectangle Stitched Dies, a panel using one of the papers in the Ice Cream Corner DSP pack. Adhere to the card base with dimensionals.
  • Using various papers of the Ice Cream Corner DSP, punch the four layers for the ice cream cone. Stamp with the sprinkles stamp using Old Olive ink, Terracotta Tile ink and Blackberry Bliss ink. Put these four pieces together with liquid glue from the bottom – up. Cover lightly with Wink of Stella.
  • Die cut a Whisper White panel using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Color with Pool Party ink and the new Blending Brushes.
  • Stamp the word ‘Happy’ in Blackberry Bliss on the Whisper White panel. NOTE: know the placement of the ice cream cone prior to stamping!
  • Adhere the ice cream cone to the Whisper White panel with dimensionals.
  • Adhere several Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins. These bring out the colors of the ice cream cone!
  • Adhere this panel to the card front – and the front is complete

For the inside… and the envelope…

Stamp the word ‘Birthday” in PoolParty ink on one of the ‘color blobs’ on the Ice Cream Corner DSP; fussy cut the word; adhere with dimensionals to a Whisper White panel. Stamp the rest of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.. Adhere several of the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Secure the panel to the card base with liquid glue.

For the envelope, adhere a panel of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to a Whisper White envelope and call it done!

Here are photos of the stamp set and the punch…

Card Cuts:

  • Pool Party card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4
  • Various Ice Cream Corner DSP: stitched rectangle 3 3/4 x 5 1/8 + small amounts from other papers in the pack to fit the punch
