Melt My Heart with Sweet Ice Cream

Today’s sweet-and-simple card is a blend of familiar products with a sneak peek at something new. As soon as I laid eyes on this sticky sweet page of Pattern Play Designer Series Paper (new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalog), I knew I needed to pair it with the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle. What a perfect match! Here’s my card:

Let’s start with the familiar – since Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2021 Mini Catalog launched, customers have been clamoring for the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle, which includes the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer stamp set and Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. The punch was so popular that it quickly sold out, moved to backordered and then to unorderable status. It’s easy to see what it’s been so popular – the bundle is amazing! Here’s a look:

The GREAT NEWS about this super-fun bundle – it’s back in stock! If you haven’t ordered it yet, I need to understand what you are waiting for. ♥

The Mini Catalog pairs this bundle with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. While I love this pack of papers, the colors are more rich and jewel-toned than what I’d typically think of with ice cream. Here’s a look at this beautiful pack of papers with unexpected colors:

Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up! 154567Again, I love these pages, but the purple, green and rust colors aren’t what I think of when I think of ice cream. I guess I don’t immediately think of pink either (except that bubble gum ice cream what my favorite when I was a child). The ice cream scoop is perfectly sweet in Flirty Flamingo, don’t you think?

I LOVE the black and white pages in the True Love Designer Series Paper (also from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog) because I can add my own color to the pages, but I also love papers with bold, bright colors.

Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalog introduces us to Pattern Play Designer Series Paper. I don’t want to pick favorites yet, but this just might be my favorite thing in the new catalog. Here’s a look (and then I’ll tell you why you are going to love it, too):

Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian KingHere’s what I love about the Pattern Play Designer Series Paper:

  • The paper pack includes 48 sheets (4 each of 12 double-sided designs) of 12″ x 12″ designs
  • One side of the paper features a black-and-white design, one side is beautifully colorful
  • The papers are a mix of styles and patterns that can be used throughout the year and for all occasions.
  • The pack of papers (again, 48 sheets) is only $18 and offered as a Host Reward when you spend $150 or more.
  • This pack is showcased on page 171 of the new catalog.

If I could design a pack of papers for Stampin’ Up! (no one has asked me, incidentally), this would be it! I’m going to be using this paper all the time. I suggest you plan a $150 order today so you can select this pack of papers with your rewards. You won’t regret it.

  3. Hi Brian:
    Today’s card is yummy-licious for sure. Wonderful colors and I love the cone crossbar effect. I bet you had a ton of fun making it. Thanks for sharing.

    • I did have fun with this, Grace! I played with a couple of different patterns (like a diagonal band of this paper) before realizing I only needed to showcase it. The large panel gave me just what I wanted. ♥

  4. I love the DSP in this very versatile pack. Your card is wonderful. Strawberry ice cream is pink and that’s what I thought of when I saw your yummy scoop! The recipient will love this sweet card. Enjoy your day!

  5. Can’t wait to order this paper! Love your sweet card!

  6. That DSP is wonderful with the ice cream! Delicious!

  7. Love this card!! The colors are great. Thanks so much for sharing.
