#862 – STB: Food and/or Drink

PE: Rocker at Watercooler Wednesday challenge!

Honorable Mention at the Addicted to Stamps & More challenge!

Addicted to Stamps - Honorable Mention

Hello and welcome! Its time for a new challenge at the Seize the Birthday challenge. Every Challenge is always Anything Goes and a special Topping is included for extra fun.  And this time’s topping is chosen by Glenda ‘Food and/or Drink’.

And here’s what I made –


I had first chosen some cupcakes, but then my sight fell on these ice-cream dies, from Reverse Confetti Love and Ice-Cream dies, which I hadn’t used in forever!! I did a search on my Pinterest boards, and figured out that watercoloring might be my best option to show off some delicious ice-cream. So I cut out everything, watercolored them, let them dry.

For the card base, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, whose name I’ve forgotten. I swiped some distress oxide ink across the folder, misted it a bit, then embossed the card base in it. I then added a later of vellum to soften it a bit and foam mounted the ice creams on top.


The sentiment pieces are from Winnie & Walter In a Word: Birthday and Winnie & Walter In a Phrase: Hugs & Kisses dies. I cut out three of each, colored one of the hugs die cuts and adhered them all together. I then adhered this on my card.

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

  1. I am so partial to ice cream and this is a profound way to make a statement about it. I adore how you embossed that bold background and then softened it with the vellum. Your watercoloring for the ice cream reminds me of delicious sherbet, which I like too.

  2. Yum, who wouldn’t want to eat those luscious looking ice cream cones for their birthday! Love how well the watercoloring of the ice cream turned out and your fabulous background!

  3. Oh yum! What beautiful colours you chose and would be so full of mouthwatering flavours. Love the background and how you toned it down with the vellum. Stunning card Ashwini. Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM this week.

  4. The watercolor blending on your ice cream cones makes them look so yummy! Especially the green part, which looks like pistachio ice cream- one of my favorites!!! The background is awesome as well!

  5. That ice cream looks so yummy and good enough to eat. Your watercoloring is perfect for them. Love how you soften the background with the layer of vellum.
