Every time Stampin' Up! comes out with a new catalog, the swapping of cards begins! They are so much fun and you get to see so many creative ideas. If you don't know what a swap is, let me explain. When you participate in a swap you will make a certain number of the same card (I had to make 13 of the above card). You send them off to the organizer and then she will send you back different cards (I got 12 back). This is a great way to get samples of the different products and also get ideas for your own future projects. I have to say this time the cards were awesome!
On this card I used a layout that I saw my sweet friend, Mary Knabe, share on Facebook. I love creative fold cards, especially if they are easy. I used the Ice Cream Corner suite in the new Stampin' Up! 2021 mini catalog. When I attended the virtual OnStage in November, I won this stamp set. I couldn't wait to start playing with it. So, as soon as I was able to order it (being a demonstrator you get to order the products early, Yay!) it was the first thing on my list.
In the above picture you can see how it folds. Isn't is cute? The designer series paper is from the Ice Cream Corner pack. This suite has a beautiful Blackberry Bliss ribbon, but it was too wide for what I was wanting. So, I used the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack. The ice cream cone was punched out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.
To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
- cut at 4 1/4" x 9 1/4" score at 1 7/8" on each end
- cut at 1 3/4" x 4 1/4" (this is the piece you cut off the piece of cardtock above)
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Blushing Bride, Cinnamon Cider, Pool Party, Purple Posy
- scraps for ice cream and cone
Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper
- cut 2 at 1 5/8" x 4"
- cut at 1 1/2" x 4"
You could use this card for a thank you, thinking of you, birthday, congratulations, etc. There are so many possibilities with the Ice Cream Corner suite. I can't wait to start creating more.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a fantastic Friday and weekend!
Sending everyone lots of love and hugs.
Happy Stampin and
