Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Crop days are always fun at the Store! It was Chevonne’s Birthday so we had cake! My friend Louis came by to show me his new Honda CR-V, so good to see him! I got to discuss This is Us with Linda! My friend Michelle stopped by too, so nice to see her! She picked up a few goodies and I can’t wait to see what she makes with them! After work I came home and went over to my Parent’s and spent some time with them, my Brother, Erika, Daniel, Tristan and Taylor! I even got a little group selfie…

Yes, I look a little bit like a fool, trying to get Tristan to smile! They are such good little kids! After that it was home to do a little organizing! Today is the last day to place your Lawn Fawn Pre-Order with the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! You can click HERE to go to the Collection! Tonight I’ll be getting the order ready! Can’t wait to get all those new goodies into the Store! 😀

For some reason I had a craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream yesterday so I decided that the card version would be a lot less calories! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the ice cream and cones onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and an extra one for the main image. To stamp them I used Mint Julep, Tide Pool, Soft Brown and Cup O Joe. The single one is cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. My stamped background is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. I cut a piece of 48lb Vellum to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The die cut ice cream and cone is adhered to the Vellum with 3D Foam Squares and then I added more behind it to adhere it to the card. I love the way the Vellum really softens the busy stamped background and highlights the single come and greeting! I hope that you like my card for today! I thank you for coming by and wish you a nice easy Sunday! 🙂
