Inkspired Blog Hop 48

Hi everyone and welcome to the first INKspired blog hop of the year! You may have come from the talented Lisa. I always look forward to see how the other women have interpreted the sketch we were given.

Speaking of sketches, here is the one for this fortnight:

The first thing I noticed about this card is that it is a square card. I had lots of ideas for this sketch but finally settled on this card:

This is a 4 inch easel card. It supports itself when sitting on a table. I thought about what the temperature will be like today and according to the weather reports, it will be 36, followed by 39 tomorrow and several days this week! That is hot, so I thought I would make an ice cream card!

I love the Cool Treats product suite! I used Whisper White for my card base and covered the easel part of my card in Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper. Always decorate the front of your easel card BEFORE you attached it to your card base. It is so much easier that way!

I then used the Frozen Treats Framelits to cut the cones out of Crumb Cake. I stamped the ice cream and flavouring using Watermelon Wonder and Chocolate Chip, using the Cool Treats stamp and die cut them. I could have just cut them using the framelits, however, it was easier for me to find my Chocolate Chip and Watermelon Wonder ink than it was for me to find the corresponding card stock!!

I attached them to the card front and then attached the card front to the card base. I used a sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set and cut a frame around it. I then attached it to the inside of the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Next up is Maree, she always make wonderful cards. 

Until next time time, have fun crafting!!



  1. Hey Alison, your right, it was a square but I didn't get that right. Great card, I haven't as yet got this set, but maybe I should

    1. I wasn't sure that I wanted it until I saw some wonderful things created with it!

  2. Very cool Allison (see what I did there? lol) I love the colour combo you've chosen and those ice creams look good enough to eat :)

  3. Love your card Allison it looks delish and now I would like icecream...

  4. A cool card for a hot day is just what the doctor ordered! Love that you made an easel card, will have to make one myself now.
