Yummy-licious

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a great week!  Are you ready for another project featuring My Pink Stamper stamps?  I’ve been having a blast creating projects with the stamps from My Pink Stamper's latest release.  Today’s card features the “Yummy-licious” stamp from none other than the “Yummy-licious” stamp set.  I used my Cricut Imagine to create this project, but I’ll refer you to another cartridge below that has a very similar cut.

This card measures 3.5 x 5.5.  It makes for a fun shape…and something that’s a little bit smaller.  These size cards are perfect for my kids to give to their friends…they usually don’t have too much to write besides “Happy Birthday” and sign their name.

I used the Yummy Cricut Imagine cartridge for my main image.  However, I noticed a very similar ice cream on the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge as well (see page 68).  The ice cream and the layers are cut at 4.25 inches.  I didn’t change any of the colors on the image…just cut it once with the layers combined and once with the layers separated.  This gives me a base to adhere everything to.

To add some fun details to my ice cream dish, I covered it with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.  This really gives it the feeling of real glass and makes it come to life.  I covered the cherry with Crystal Effects to make it shine too.

The patterned papers are also from the Yummy Cricut Imagine Cartridge.  I used patterns on pages 40, 42 and 43 to flood fill the various background shapes on the card.  The label shapes are from the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge (page 60, Radish-s).  I cut the pink one at 5 inches and the brown one at 5.5 inches.

Finally, I finished off the card by stamping the “Yummy-licious” sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Yummy-licious stamp set.  Isn’t that sentiment perfect for this card?

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for another fun project and mark your calendars for Friday’s Pinkalicious Blog Hop!
