Have I got one heck of a alternative Paper Pumpkin project for the June kit for you!
This all started when my daughter was making thank you cards for her birthday and she was trying to do so with the June Paper Pumpkin kit, which makes these adorable shaker banners that you can attach to a card. GENIUS idea, love it. But I wanted to give her another idea to do with this kit. So, I thought about what else one of the clear pennant pockets could be used for and my first thought was an ice cream cone!
I could not find anything that was just what I wanted to be the scoop for the top of this cone, so I decided to just draw one! I will be the first to tell you that I am not an artist, but that does not mean that I am not creative, and thank goodness for Stampin' Up! that lets me be creative and feel like an artist! So, I took my Flirty Flamingo marker and with the writing tip I drew a scoop of ice cream. I am not going to lie, I might have drew a few before I got one I liked! I was inspired by the scoop/cloud image from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. And so I added some little lines of detail.
As you can see I filled the bag with the sequins from the kit, then I taped it shut with the provided washi tape. I attached my cut out scoop to the top of the cone with Fast Fuse. Then to attach it to the card I used demensionals on the back of the scoop and Fast Fuse on the back of the cone. I accented this cone with a pompom of sorts made with the twine from the kit. I made it not very full so I could smash it down and it would be more flat. I added one of the circles from the kit which I stamped with the included stamp set. And I knew I needed a drip, which I also drew, accented, cut out and adhered to the card. I loved it so much I could not let the fun end there, I had to make more flavors!
How about some Peekaboo Peach Sorbet! So yummy. You can see I used a bit of the Washi Tape from the kit on the card front here. And topped my scoop with a gold heart from the provided stickers.
I had to make another and use the gold star stickers!
Can't have ice-cream with out chocolate! And strawberry drizzle and a golden cherry to top it! The cherry and drizzle, yep, hand drawn. I added a few sprinkles to the top of this cone and then highlighted them with the Clear Wink of Stella brush pen. And then the cherry felt left out so I Stellafied that too. This one might be my fave!
But then what's better that one scoop? THREE!
Yeah, I really could not stop! I love it and am so glad I have two more of these kits to play with. If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, but super bad want this kit, you can subscribe now and as a subscriber you can purchase past kits! So, that means, you could purchase this kit!
I want you to have as much fun as I did with these cards so I made you a little something! A pattern sheet with 3 different scoops, drizzle, a drip and a cherry! Just print the pattern sheet on card stock, cut the pieces out, trace them on the card stock of your choice with a matching marker. Then add the accent lines if you like. And top your cone!
I used mine to make a Mint Chocolate Chip Cone! I suggest tracing around the pattern twice, making the line darker and a bit thicker. Then it stands out more than the accent lines.
If you'd like to see what this kit was designed to make here's a VIDEO.
