ice cream....

Hello friends!! Had a super busy weekend and wasn't able to get anything done for the new Less is More challenge.  So this morning I decided to get something done.  When I saw the new CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers I decided to combine it with the Less is More challenge:  3-2-1.  As per Chrissie and Mandi's request to explain what you used 3 of, 2 of and 1 of, I used three stamps (ice cream scoop, cone & sentiment), two papers and one button.




The CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers is "summer treats".  As I was thinking about what I had that I could use for the challenge I remembered that I had a set from the Stamps of Life called "scream4icecream" that would be perfect for that challenge.  Then I realized that it would also work for this week's LIM challenge and my idea was born.  I used some papers from two different BasciGrey pads:  Shine On and Serendipity.  I stamped the scoop using dark pink ink and the cone using brown ink and trimmed them out.  The come was adhered to the card front and then the scoop was adhered using foam dimensionals.  A bit of green bakers twine was tied through a button and adhered to the scoop to finish things off.  Not my most CAS card, but it will still work for the LIM challenge.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies: PTI kraft & white; PP:  BasicGrey;  Stamps:  Stamps of Life; Button:  PTI; Twine:  Twinery; Ink:  Stampin Up!
