I’m thrilled to share my reveal with you...
Today is my very first Blog Frenzy ever. I get to share a very fun Die Template Set, Spellbinders S4-276 Sweet Treats!
I have two projects to share today, starting with my Ice Cream Social Invitation.
Many ideas came to mind when I first saw these adorable die templates. I really could do so much with all of these delicious dies! Of all four in the set, the Ice Cream Cone is my favorite.
These are the supplies for my 5x7” card:
Spellbinders: The Wizard Die Cut & Embossing System
Spellbinders Dies Templates S4-276 Sweet Treats; S4-235 Fancy Tags; S5-016 Polka Dot Frame
The Paper Company: 5x7” Pink, 4 ½ x 6 ½” Black, 5 ½ x 8 ½” White Cardstock
Creative Impressions: Polka Dot Ribbon
Taylored Expressions: Pink Rhinestone Bling
Copic Sketch Markers: E33, E15, E77, RV04, RV09, RV23
First I cut/embossed one Ice Cream Cone die cut from white paper, this will be the pink cone.
to get a mirror image for the second cone, so I cut only from white paper. Remove the die cut from the die and place it on the flat side of the die, and secure with low tack tape.
Emboss the die cut using the upside down die template, and stencil through the holes in the die from the front. Now I have mirror image die cuts!
I embellished my cones using my Copic Airbrush System and Copic Sketch Markers. I masked off areas I did not want airbrushed with masking tape.
Here I started with the waffle cone part. I almost always start with darker colors first. I chose E15 for the shadows of the waffle.
Keep the die cut paper in the die and move the masking tape to reveal the next section to color. I covered the parts I don’t want colored.
Using the darker of the pinks #RV04.
This is the result! Looks yummy, doesn’t it?.
Because I used the darker of the colors first I can now use my lighter colors for the back ground without degrading the colors too much.
Mask off as necessary, using tape or scrap paper. I started with E33
The same for the top only, #RV02, this is how it should look at this stage.
To finish it off I used a Milky Way Galaxy Marker to add some highlights.
I used the Frameabilities® S5-016 Polka Dot Frame to frame out the party details.
I cut/embossed white cardstock, then turned die template over. I used the die template as a stencil and airbrushed RV04 to color the dots. I positioned the frame on black cardstock. With the Milky Way marker I hand wrote the invitation information. I added a S4-235 Fancy Tag and embellished with a little rhinestone bling and ribbon.
MSRP: $ 19.99
