Celebrate With Ice Cream For The Pals Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, our blog hop theme is Party Time! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My party time card today for the hop uses the Share A Milkshake bundle from the spring mini catty. I designed this card with a little fun fold for extra celebrating! I have a Mint Macaron base and I cut 2 3/4" of the top of the card off. I then added some Country Gingham DSp to the top half on the outside and then another print of the same designer paper inside. I cut a white Scalloped Contours rectangle for the front plus a Stitched Rectangle die in the same color ran through with the new Basics 3D embossing folder to layer inside the scalloped one. I love the texture! I then cut out the cone in Crumb Cake card stock and sponged on some Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the three scoops in Mint Macaron, Fresh Freesia and Soft Suede inks. I cut them out with the matching dies along with some Mint Macaron hearts I used on the scoops and inside on a piece of white cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies. I stamped the sentiment inside in Mint ink. I stamped the celebrate in Fresh Freesia ink on a Stylish Shapes banner in white. I finished off with some Fresh Freesia gems. 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on April 12th, when our theme will be Flowers in the Garden, showcasing cards/projects with flowers.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
