Sweet Popsicles - Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream

   I'm playing along with my friends at The Paper Players and using Anne Marie's fresh color combination!  While my time as a Paper Players guest designer is over I look forward to continuing to play along and be inspired by this super talented bunch of stampers! While I made my card a few days ago I'm just finding time this morning to get it posted and shared.  Just in the nick of time as the challenge closes in a few hours!

  As soon as I saw these colors (Just Jade, Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya + a Neutral) I thought of warmer summer days and not this freezing cold winter weather we've been having.  I stamped some popsicles to go along with my summer day dreams!  The Sweet Ice Cream set hasn't seen much ink lately but is always a good choice for a birthday card.

  I started with a Basic White thick base, then topped it with a Basic White panel that is embossed with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  Then I cut 1/8" wide stripes and layered them around the edge to create a pretty border to frame out the rest of the elements.

  The popsicles are stamped in Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya and Crumb Cake is used for the sticks.  

  I stamped the sentiment from All Squared Away in all three challenge colors then snipped the words out and mixed and matched them and popped them with dimensionals.

  A few Artistry Blooms sequins and a Calypso Coral baker's twine bow finish the details for this card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
