Stacks of Ice Cream 2 Ways – Birthday & Holiday

By | September 27, 2016

Don’t think a stamp set can only be use for the intended occasion, today I will show you how the Sweet Cupcake Bundle can be used for the type of card you know it’s meant to be, a Birthday card, but also for a holiday card. Today’s  holiday of choice is Halloween.

The “ice cream” or frosting stamp is done using two of the three stamps in the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and the same ink color. First image is stamped off (ink up stamp, stamp on scrap paper then on good paper) then second layer is stamped in full strength ink.  Matching framelits were used to die cut the ice cream on both cards. Each layer has been adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. Only the base was stamped directly on the Very Vanilla or Whisper White paper.

For the portion of the card with the image the measurements are:

  • Card stock – 3″ x 5″
  • Designer Series Paper – 2¾” x 4¾”
  • Very Vanilla & Whisper White for image – 2½” x 4½”

Birthday card featuring Moroccan Designer Series Paper, Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze and Dapper Denim ink.


Halloween card features Emerald Envy, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie inks and the new Halloween Nights Designer Series Paper, Halloween Nights Bakers Twine and Halloween Treat stamp (I stamped the image and hand cut out the Trick or Treat).
