Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set & Tree Builder Punch by StampinUP

Card made by Sue B. of  Normal, IL
Color Scheme:  Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, White & Mint Macaron (Retired)

The ice cream cone and all 3 scoops were embossed with clear embossing powder.

It won't be long until ice cream season is over and we will be shifting to fall leaves,
pumpkins, ghosts and goblins!!  And then there is Christmas.......
Oh, and I hate to mention the "S" word, but you know that "white stuff" is bound 
to be making an appearance before we know it.
(At least in IL where I live)

seasonal StampinUP products coming soon in the Holiday Catalog!!

Cool Treats by StampinUP.... makes a great summer Birthday card!!

The inside of this card says Happiest Birthday.
Both sentiments come from the "Cool Treats" Stamp Set.
I used the "Frozen Treats" Framelits Dies to cut 3 treats out of the white paper.
Designer Paper was then put behind the 3 openings to make the patterns.
I did use retired paper on this card (all except the popsicle on the right).
That Soft Sky colored one comes from the "Naturally Eclectic" Paper which is current.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks very much for stopping by.......Lori Helvick
