Stampin' Up! Sprinkles of Life Ice Cream Clouds

Hey Stampin' Friends!!

As promised, I'm posting two days in a row so I can share all the fun details of my Sprinkles of Life June Online Stamp Class cards with all of my class members. I mailed their kits on Monday and want to make sure they have all the instructions available when their kits arrive so they can enjoy all kinds of stamping fun!!

The Sprinkles of Life stamp set is the 2015 Ronald McDonald House Charities "Make a Difference" stamp set. Every year Stampin' Up! chooses one stamp set that helps support the RMHC. For every Sprinkles of Life set that is sold, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to RMHC. So it's a great reason to "have to" buy stamps!! :)

And I love that they have a coordinating punch (the Tree Builder punch) for this set. I'm a sucker for "matchy-matchy" things.

Here are the last two cards from my class...

As a kid, one of my favorite flavors of ice cream was Neopolitan. I think that's why I love this card so much. It's a sweet reminder of many lazy, summer days eating ice cream on my grandparents front porch. Tip Top Taupe is the perfect "chocolate ice cream" color!!

Temporarily position your clouds on your card front. Stamp the raindrop image using Smoky Slate ink.
Glue the Smoky Slate cloud onto the Silver Glimmer cloud.
Using Dimensionals, attach the Whisper White and Smoky/Silver cloud to the card front.
Using a Glue Dot, attach the vellum cloud under the Whisper White cloud onto of the Pool Party card front. (It is "raised" like the other clouds.)

Stamp your sentiment onto your banner using Smoky Slate ink. Add silver raindrop.
After Dazzling Detail raindrops are dry, attach your sentiment banner to the left side of your card front using Dimensionals.
Tie Silver ribbon around the top of your card.

And you're done!!

Whenever I finish a card and look at it too long, I always think of things I would have done differently. On this card I wish I would have embossed the vellum cloud with the Decorative Dots EF. Just to give it a little more texture. And I also wish I had purchased the Silver Metallic Thread because it would have been the perfect addition to swirl under the sentiment banner. Or maybe if I had the Silver Sequin Trim I could have added that somewhere. But you can't use what you don't have. Guess that means I have some shopping to do!!! ;)

I'm so enjoying these monthly Online Stamp Classes. I hope you are too. 

I was going to do the Tin of Cards for my July class, but it has been so overwhelmingly popular, that it is on backorder. So I can't decide which stamp set to use next. What do you think?

- Watercolor Words
- Garden in Bloom
- Build a Birthday
- Watercolor Wings

Help me choose! Leave a comment before the 4th of July and I will randomly select one commenter to receive a Luck Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!!

Thanks for stopping by!
