I'm not usually a huge fan of ice cream....except for summertime. And it has finally been warm here, enough to crave ice cream! And that's what I love about Stampin' Up!'s Cupcake Punch........turn the cupcake top into an ice cream cone. Today we have a color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. Join us and play the color challenge:

 My Card:

I used the Brights Patterns Paper Pack and punched 2 in Old Olive DSP and one in Daffodil Delight DSP. I wanted the ice cream cone to match the black in the background and did you notice the embossing? Yes.....a brand new embossing folder! It is called "Houndstooth". I even embossed the ice cream cone with it! The shape is from the new Pennants Punch!

 Complete the card by adding a little bling. I added a few Rhinestone Brads for just the right amount of glimmer!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
  • DSP: Brights Patterns Paper Pack
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Cupcake Punch, Pennant Punch, Scallop Oval Die, Houndstooth Textured Impressions Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals
