Here is another card I made using my new Sweet Scoops stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s Summer Mini Catalogue. This card uses the "kissing technique" that I talked about in my last ice cream card description. Do you see how the black swirls over top of the Pumpkin Pie ice cream? To get this effect you need a base image and a textured image. This stamp set has both of those. Ohhh the number of cards you can make with those two stamp sets are endless. I couldn't resist making a Tiger Ice Cream card......it is one of my fav flavours of ice cream. I may just have to have this or a card similar doing the "kissing technique" at my Summer Mini Stamp Camp coming up in May. Oh yes and I also used a jumbo brad which I don't usually use. Need to start using the stock that I have and start leaving my comfort zone a little bit. Kind of funny how the light is shining on it - it almost makes the Jumbo Brad look orange. hehehe And one more thing about this card is I used the Photo Corner Punch to make the word banner. I saw that on someone's blog recently. Great trick! I must find out whose blog I saw it on so that I can give them the proper credit for it.
