Wednesday’s Card: Ice Cream Sundae!

Sundae Card

Hi All!

I have a few stamps from There She Goes. The quality is really good and the images are great. I especially love the sentiments that come with them – very unique. I have another set with some really funny sentiments… I’ll have to try and use it soon! I mention in the video that their sentiment stamps are teeny tiny letters. Yet, they still stamp very clear. Heck, I even heat embossed this sentiment and you can still read it clearly!! That’s pretty amazing. It may be hard for you to make it out in my photo – it says “Stressed spelled backwards is desserts”.

Anyway, I used Copics to color the ice cream. I had to be creative with the vanilla, since I didn’t want it to look all yellow. So, I used a little bit of brown in it. I used Glossy Accents on the syrup and the cherry – looks so yummy, right?

I get a lot of email questions about Copics. I know how overwhelming it can be to get started – there are so many!! If you are in that boat, here are a few posts that might help you:

Hope this helps!

Shout-out to Barb G, who sent me her extra set of Spellbinders scallop ovals, used on this card. 🙂

For those of you who have been following my blog for awhile, you know that my husband is addicted to Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. I refuse to purchase it (I have no self control when it’s in the house), so he takes it upon himself to buy his own. He works a lot, so it’s not often he gets free time. As a result, he buys in major bulk. He just bought about 20 more pints of it last week. Ugh!! All those flavors!! I’m trying not to eat it, so I’ve got ice cream on the brain, hence this card. By the way – he’s skinny as can be. Figures.

Enjoy and have a great week!

    Oh Darlene…..you just made me go and grab a scoop or two of Ben and Jerry’s, I love it too and yes!! it can get you addicted to it. But my dear, you are in amazing shape so, indulge a little, eh? you work out so much with your Zumba classes that a little ice cream wont do you no harm.
    Ok now, about this card…..it’s delicious, wow!! the crystal effects make it look so darn real, your coloring is amazing, as usual and the sentiment absolutely made me laugh. I never, ever knew that the word “stressed” = “desserts” spelled backwords, trully fantastic. I’m going to have to get me this set, thank you so much for sharing.

    Love your ice cream card. I see you are using the Ranger Glossy Accents now, how does this compare to SU’s Crystal Effects? I still have problems with the Crystal Effects drying up before I finish the bottle.

      Carol, I personally like the Glossy Accents better than the Crystal Effects. The Glossy Accents are less cloudy, have a finer tip for applying, and the bottle never get clogged.

    The dimension of the bowl is amazing! Tasty card!

    This card is mouth watering – and that sentiment is so sassy! I will have to put them on my “to order” list!

    Thanks so much for yet again another great tutorial! I can’t wait to do that tone on tone on tone background technique!
