Voila is such a fun stamp set - I have just loved this chef dude over the last few years! Here is a gift set we made once, featuring the Voila chef with stamped Coasters and Magnets.

Sweet Scoops - Patriotic

stampin up, sweet scoopsHow about this patriotic ice cream cone using the Sweet Scoops stamp set from Stampin' Up! This is one of my June stamp camp cards. We cut out and layered up the three Red, White, Blue scoops that are all glittered and sparkly from Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

The ribbon ruffle is created using a strip of Sticky Strip and the beautiful White Satin Ribbon, tacked down here and there. I also sprayed the Creamy Caramel layer with Shimmer Mist mixed with Rubbing Alcohol before I ran it through my Big Shot with the Perfect Details Texture Plate - the perfect ice cream cone texture.

Stamps: Sweet Scoops, Starring You
Cardstock: Ruby Red, Brilliant Blue, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red Craft, Brilliant Blue Craft, Whisper White Craft, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Perfect Details Texture Plate, Shimmer Mist, White Satin Ribbon, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder

Stampin' Up! is retiring 100's of Stamps and Accessories this month and now is your Last Chance to get them!

Take a look at the Last Chance Stamp Sets and the Last Chance Accessories List. Remember that the Stamps will be available through June 30th, but the Accessories are all while supplies last, so be sure to place your order online or e-mail it to me soon. And take a close look at the Last Chance Accessories List - some items are being re-configured for the new catalog and are marked with an * on the left. And a few items are discounted - Bermuda Bay cardstock is 50% off! Also, on the right side, if an item has an red X, it is sold out. I will be updating the List to reflect the Sold Out items to keep it as current as possible.
