Yummy...Ice Cream!

Hi Stampers!

Sorry for the late post today for my Design team project for The Cutting Cafe. My sister called me about 11:15 this morning to let me know that my Step-Dad might have to have his foot or part of it amputated. He apparently got an infection in it quite awhile ago and did not go to the doctor and it has now spread into his bone and is going up his leg. They put a drain in it this morning and did an MRI and are running some other tests so we are waiting to hear what they suggest be done. Pretty scary! Not  the way I wanted to get woke up after only 3 hours of sleep. He lives in Arizona too, so we can't be at the hospital - so I am just sitting here waiting for news. They thought they would know something about 5:30 this evening.

While I am waiting I am trying to stay busy and I wanted to get my Design team project posted!

Regina has been unveiling some AWESOME new files over this last month so if you haven't checked out the new release section at The Cutting Cafe - you are missing out!

This week we had to use a few of the newer release sets. We had to use the String & Button Envelope Template and then we could choose one of the four Tall Cards that are designed to fit inside this special envelope. We could us the Tall Cake, Tall Flowers, Tall Present or  Tall Ice Cream. They are all so cute it was hard to pick :) Here is what I finally settled on...

ICE CREAM :) I thought this cone was super adorable! This is a shaped folded card - how cute is THAT?

Here is a close up of my envelope ...

I decorated my envelope using one of my favorite Kenny K images from Whimsy Stamps called Troublemaker. I colored her with my copic markers and the pants are colored with spectrum noir markers. After coloring my image I cut her out and popped her up on dimensionals on a cute notebook paper I found laying around :) The carefree moment is a Lilybee rub on. The hanging bead from my twine end is actually a paper bead I made using Regina's Paper Beads Template file.

Here is a look at the back of the String & Button Envelope ...

I really love this envelope file! I think it would be super cute to use these in a mini album! I plan on trying that out someday :)

Now here is a close up of my Tall Ice Cream Cone Shaped Card ...

The cone part I embossed both horizontally and vertically with an embossing folder that has random twigs on it for texture. The Middle ice cream scoop is created using another new file from The Cutting Cafe called Ice Cream Flavors Printable Background Set.  Love this paper :) My other scoops are from My Mind's Eye.

Here is a close up of my Troublemaker image ...
