Strawberry Ice Cream anyone?

Wow...I have been so busy this month...I can't believe that tomorrow's the last day of April and I've only blogged a couple of times!  Tomorrow is my card buffet so I'll have lots of goodies to share with you really soon! 

As soon as I got my Petal cone die, I wanted to make an Ice Cream Cone card with it and I found this card when I was 'Googling' around and I thought it was absolutely darling so I cased it...isn't it sweet? I love how Holly used the trim from the Tasteful Trims die for the Ice Cream base.  Mmmmm...I just want to give it a big slurp, strawberry ice cream is one of my favourite things!!

I used the Petal cone die (of course!) and Crumb Cake carstock, first I ran it through the die and then I ran it through the Big Shot again with the Perfect Details Texture plate.  Then I sponged the cone in my old fave retired ink...Close to Cocoa.

I used Pretty in Pink for the strawberry ice cream, trim and banner and sponged it with Melon Mambo.  For the banner I used Happy Birthday from Something to Celebrate (Level 2 hostess set in the outgoing Occasions Mini)

The ribbon is a bow de fourchette using ribbon from my stash of ribbons.  Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by to share your time with me!
Hugs ~ Judy


  1. This is so cute! I got my petal cone die last week but had forgotten why I ordered it. It's blog posts like this that keep me inspired!

    Thanks Judy!

  2. Oh my goodness, I'm thrilled that you liked my Petal Cone ice cream cone enough to case it, Judy!

    Yours is just splendid, especially with that perfect little bow de fourchette.

    Love how you sponged the scoop, too; it looks like some places are melting a little faster than others--or maybe those are lick marks. . . .
