Sweet Scoops View Master

Okay I was having some fun playing around yesterday and is a card known as a View Master Card.  You make a window in your card front, cut a circle out of card stock, stamp images (up to 3 or 4 depending on the size of your circle) on the circle and if you look at the right side of the card you will see part of the edge of the circle with ticks on it...that is what you use to turn your circle so you can see the different images that have been stamped - pretty neat hey.  When this idea popped into my head yesterday I thought what a neat way to introduce Stampin' Up!'s new IN-COLORS to you.......yes the dark brown color that is the inner layer of my circle window and the ice cream cone are stamped with Stampin' Up!'s new core color EARLY ESPRESSO.  It is a fantastic color to stamp with.  Such a deep color - I love it already.  The color on the second picture of the card is Peach Parfait with a touch of Poppy Parade outlining the ice cream swirls which are two of Stampin' Up!'s new in-colors. The instructions on how to make this card are found here.  Instead of using a Coluzzle Circle Cutting System I used Stampin' Up!'s Circle Cutter System.  This card was really fun to make.
