Bold Stuff I’ve Never Used!

I wanted to make a “how’s it going” card for a friend (the one that got married a few posts back…) who’s recently moved to a new place and is also new to this whole Pastor’s wife thing.  When I saw the Simon Says Stamp Boldly Go Into Stamptember Challenge, I thought some bright ice cream scoops would be a perfect way to go!

I looked through some pictures of cards I had made for ideas on how to mask and stamp the ice cream scoops and realized, despite having had this set for a while, I don’t think I’ve ever actually used it!  This made me wish that djkardkreations was having an “NBUS” or “Never-Before-Used-Schtuff” challenge, and then, lo and behold, she posted a new challenge!  (I was probably more excited about this than I should have been.)

So, I am very excited to be double dipping (HA! That pun was NOT intended) with this card at both Simon Says Stamp AND djkardkreations!

Bold Ice Cream Card

The ice cream stamps are from Stampin’ Up (Sweet Scoops, retired), and the sentiment is from the Fiskars Cupcakes and More set.  The Harlequin embossing plate is also by Stampin’ Up (retired).  The swirly frame is from Sizzix (and seems to also be retired) and I hadn’t used it before, either.  The tag die is from Cuttlebug’s Tiny Tags set, and considering I had to cut the package open, I apparently had never used it before either!

Thanks for the opportunities to enter this card!

    You didn’t know just how magical I was, didja Laurie?? You made a wish and I granted it! Unfortunately, even though I’m wishing VERY VERY HARD, that amazing ice cream cone is NOT appearing on my desk. Darn it! I love this choice for your friend who is going through so many changes; it’s very bright, cheerful, and happy! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! I’m not seeing you in my follower thumbnails, so I’d love to have you join if you like! Hugs, Darnell

    • Aw, thanks for being magical, Darnell! I already follow you on feedly; your posts always make me smile. (Should I also be following in a different way?) Thanks for having this great challenge! (We won’t talk about how many challenges I would need to even begin to use the NBUS around here.) -Laurie
