Happy New Year to all of you!!

I’m so excited we all made it to another year!!

I guarantee you this year will be the best year.  I have a lot planned for you this year!!

I hope your ready for the ride because I’m ready to share with you.

So let me beginning my new year with So Suzy Stamps!!!  She has an awesome January release for you this month.

Lets take a look at my card I created for this release:

Oh la la

Who doesn’t like creamy ice cream!! I decided to go really simple with my card because I wanted the ice cone to be the focal point of my card.

Lets take a closer look at the yummyness!

Don’t you just want to touch to see if its soft.  Well it is!  Are you wondering how I did that?  I’m going to tell you.

1. I cut my Kraft cardstock to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 4.25). I stamped So Suzy Stamps Oh La La stamp to the front of my cardstock.

2. I embossed the front of my cardstock with Stampin’ Up! Chevron Textured Embossing Folder then set it aside to work on my ice cream cone.

3. I stamped my So Suzy Stamps Ice Cone Fun Cone with Versamark ink and then embossed it with Adirondack Espresso Embossing Powder.

4. To create my textured ice, I used Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste and Ranger Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry reinkers to create my delicious colors.

5. I used my palette knife to carefully add the different color paste to my ice cream area.  I pushed past my embossed lines so that you don’t see my embossing.  I let it sit to dry.

6. Once my paste dried, I added glossy accent to my cherry for a pop.

7. I used my Koi Watercolors to added color to my cone.  The embossing gives that added texture to my cone.

8. Once the cone dried, I fuss cut the cone out and attached it to my card front using foam adhesive.

9. I added some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

10. I rounded the corners using my corner chomper.

Easy and fun!!  My nieces and daughter loved it.  I hope you do too!
