Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #123 - Stampin' Up! Sprinkles of Life

Crumb Cake #1


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

The Color Coach colours of Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron made me think of gelato in summer. What better stamp to ink up than Sprinkles of Life! :) I drizzled Dazzling Details onto the gelato layers to make them glisten. 

I used the new Whisper White Stitched Satin ribbon on here too...I never do bows on my cards...but with the help of some trusty glue dots, this one stayed intact. :)

Here's our sketch....

Since this is a birthday card, I'm also linking it to the wonderful gallery at Seize the Birthday as an 'Anything Goes' submission. :)

  1. So fun! We were on the same wavelength using that set! Love your bright colors of gelato! Great job with the sketch this week!

  2. This is so sweet, Allison! The colors make me think of sherbet....mmmm!

  3. Looks so yummy. Love the colors on the ice cream cone. Thanks so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  4. Great colours for your ice cream cone Allison - it looks delicious and I love the Dazzling Details - it makes your ice-cream even more inviting. A perfect bow too!

  5. How smart to use the Dazzling Details on your gelato! It sure does give it that cold wet look! Not sure why you never use bows though because yours is perfect! :)

  6. Your gelato cone is awesome especially with the Details on it! I also really like how you added just enough Pumpkin Pie color to make it pop but not overpower the card. Super cute!

  7. Love your gelato colors, and the fact that you used dsp for the scoops! Very fun and classic for a summer birthday!

  8. This card is so adorable for so many reasons! Love the color combo...love the button treatment...and who doesn't like bling!? Awesome!

  9. The dimension of your card and the crispness of your photo is amazing! Love your card! So glad you joined us at Seize the Birthday and hope you play along again soon!
