Colorful Crusin'

This month's VC Rock Blog hop is called Colorful Crusin'. This means I was suppose to make a card that is colorful!! Easier said than done!

I struggled for awhile to come up with an idea. When you need inspiration, where do you go? What do you do? Well, my favorite is Pinterest!

If there is a particular stamp set I want to use, I'll google the stamp set. I'll use a search phrase like "Work of Art stampin up images" This will come up with all kinds of pictures to get some inspiration.
This card's inspiration came from this Pinterest post that I had pinned a long time ago. This card is similar, yet different.

So, how did I do this? I'm glad you asked.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake cardstock.
The patterned paper is from a 6 x 6 stamp stack named Playful Palette.

The colorful background on the white uses the smaller splotch from the Work of Art stamp set. The cone, ice cream and sentiment are from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

Ink colors and other pieces of cardstock are:
Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo.

I cut out the ice cream with the tree builder punch and I decorated the top scoop with some tiny pearls.

I didn't put anything in the inside, but it would make a great birthday card, or friendship card. The "Sprinkles" stamp set includes sentiments that would work for either one.

Thanks for coming by and checking out my colorful card. Now cruise on over to the VC Rocks blog hop and check out all the other colorful cards made by the other talented stampers.
