Hi friends,i hope you`re having a great day!

Today i`m bringing you my first project with Summer Days Ice Cream cone digital image i made as Guest DT  for Heartcraft Paper !

You should check out the Digi shop of Heartcraft Paper they have a lot of amazing images  to choose from! You find the shop here!

First i printed out multiples Ice Cream cones Summer Days digital images onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80.lb paper with a toner printer because that is a Copic marker friendly and wont smear on your paper when you color.Then i cut the images with my Brother Scan n cut with  1/4 inch border .

 

 

For my card base i started by cutting my  11 Inch Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Paper sheet 80.lb in half at 5 and a 1/2 and scored it on my mini scoring board with a bone folder at 4 and 1/4 inch  to create a top folding card that i really like to use in my projects, just this time ill use it as a landscape card!

I have also cut with my  Big Shot die cutting machine 2 panels as front cards : one is cut with SSS die out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper, 80.lb and second front panel is cut with Mama Elephant die out of Lawn Fawn paper Perfectly Plaid Spring collection

 

I started coloring the cones with  a mix of Copic markers ( E 11, E 13, E 17, E 99).

For the scoops i blended Embossing paste with 3 colors: Distress ink in Picked raspberry, Memento ink Dandelion and Gina k. Apple Mint  and applied it with a normal paint brush that had the top a little hard  on each scoop to create the dimension and let it dry over night, after i applied some glue spray on the scoops and sprinkled some micro fine glitter from Elizabeth craft designs and glued some long beads i had in my stash as Sprinkles!

For the first panel i masked off an area with Purple Tape and blend it up Memento ink Dandelion with a blending tool .

Then i blended 2 more areas , one with Distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick Color and the other one with Gina k. designs ink in Apple mint color! I really like to use the Purple tape because it doesn’t rips off my paper when i remove it and if you wipe it clean after using it onto your project you can re use it!

 

For the sentiment i die cut a small label from Lawn Fawn die set “How you bean?”out of some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80.lb paper and stamped “You`re sweet !” sentiment from the same stamp set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink i thought this sentiment fits perfectly with my Ice Cream theme card. After i used my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss , it is clear , it just adds that nice glitter and after of course i had to use my Glossy Accents to add some dimension to the label so it stands out more but still its not too distract iv!

It is time to assemble the card now that we have all the pieces done! First i used Tape runner to adhere my first blended panel to the card base. After i used 3M Foam Tape to add dimension to my Ice cream cones images from Heartcraft Paper  and add them to the second panel  and i also tight a white bow to that panel i had from my stash to give some interest to the card.

After i finished the second panel i adhere it with Tape runner to the first panel , then i used again some 3M Foam Tape on the back of my sentiment label for more dimension and added it in the right low corner of my panel so it is not too distract iv and that my focal images of the card are still the Ice cream cones!

For embellishments i used some Clear Sparkle sequins from Pretty Pink Posh glued with Glossy Accents and helped by my Marvy Jewel Picker to pick them up and place them on the card in an odd number because i think that looks better and pulls the card together!

My card is now completed!

Here is a quick Youtube video I made showing step by step this card!
