You’re So Cool

Eek! Who’s ready for summer!? The Ice Cream Corner Suite is A-Dorable. I had so much fun creating with the bright colors and cute treats in this set. I watched a presentation from the designer of this Suite. It was neat to hear her walk through the creative process. I had no idea the artists actually paint the paper first and in her case, she used the Stampin’ Up Ink Refills for her paintings. Then the paintings were digitized and turned into the Designer Series Paper. So fun! This card is inspired by Ronda Wade. Ronda created this card and used the Ice Cream Cone Punch instead of the Popsicles. I thought it was very clever how she used the bottom of the scoop of ice cream on the Punch to create the scalloped edge.
