I Scream You Scream We All Scream...

...for ICE CREAM!!!

There is LOTS of ICE CREAM over at Paper Popsicles this week! Kind of appropriate huh? LOL! This week the theme is Ice Cream and we want to see what you can create to win this week's prize! And of course the week just wouldn't be complete without a FREEBIE!!! I just love this one! Here is a card I have made it with it a while ago. I used Pink Paislee pattern paper, DCWV cardstock and May Arts ribbon.There are SO many AWESOME digital images available you should be able to find just what you need to create that perfect something for this week's theme! Go check out the digital images here and see the shaped cards here.

And speaking of shaped cards here is my shaped card project for this week. I used the ice cream sundae card and created this yummy card!To create this card I found a nice and heavy weight piece of Bazzill cardstock in white-you will find out later why its SO important to use a SUPER HEAVY piece of white cardstock. So I cut my card out of the white, and next traced the front side of the card onto a piece of pink cardstock and then cut out my strawberry ice cream to go inside the glass. I again used the front side of the card template and this time used the top part to trace some chocolate sauce for the top. Next I traced the very top on the white cardstock again to create the whip cream layer and traced the cherry on a piece of DoodleBug red flocked paper. I assembled my sundae using my Helmar adhesive. I used a 1/8" hole punch and created nuts for the top, and to give the nuts some dimension I used Distressed Stickles in Straw. For my "whip cream" I used Scribble Scrabble white puff paint and applied it in a back and forth motion to create the piled on look of the whip cream. Next I used my Copic markers and outlined the ice cream and the glass as well as adding some lines to the bottom of the glass. and to finish off my project and make it really look like it was in a glass dish I used Judykins Diamond Glaze and gave the glass a "glass" look!



Be sure to head on over to the blog and see what the other designers did with their shapes!
