You Are My Happy Card

When I saw a similar card along the June Stamp of the Month blog hop, I knew that I had to recreate it (with my own twist, of course) for my recent Summer Card Class.
We used two techniques on this card: "quick coloring" and paper piecing.  To begin, we stamped the sentiment across the bottom of the White Daisy panel with Cranberry ink.  Then, we stamped the ice cream cone three times in Chocolate (plus two more times for the chocolate and vanilla scoops- once onto a piece of Chocolate Basics card stock and again onto a piece of Colonial White card stock).  To color in the cones, I had create a "reverse" mask of the cone itself: I stamped it onto a piece of scrap card stock and then cut out the cone portion only.  We lined up the mask with the cone and sponged Desert Sand ink to color the cones.  We also used this "quick coloring" process on the Cotton Candy ice cream scoop.

After adhering the other two scoop cutouts (paper piecing), we added the red epoxy heart "cherries."  After embellishing the Cotton Candy card base with pink and red shimmer trim plus a piece of Brushed zip strip, we adhered the White Daisy panel to the front.

I think the card looks delicious!  Is it too early for an ice cream cone?
