Ice Creams for JAI #269

This week has really flown - so hard to believe it is Friday already!
And we have a new challenge for you at Just Add Ink this week. Kim has suggested a fabulous Colour Challenge for us all so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and see the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you this week! Colour challenges are great because they can encourage us to try a colour combos we might not usually use or to find a different way to use some of our favourites :-)

So here are the colours for this week's challenge:

Aren't these just gorgeous hues - such soft and pretty colours together! 
Here is my card - with a slight masculine flavour :-)

Yes, there are four flavours - a generous serve of ice-cream indeed :-) 
For this beautiful colour combo I decided to try for an ombre-like effect with a twist - and separate the Pool Party and Soft Sky layers. The sentiment has also been stamped on Soft Sky and then fussy cut apart to layer on top of each other as the greeting says.

Card stock: Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky, Tip Top Taupe, Pool Party
Designer Series Paper: Wild About You Stack
Inks: Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky, Tip Top Taupe, Pool Party
Stamps: Sprinkles of Life
Accessories: Big Shot, Large Polka Dots EF, Circle Framelits, Tree Builder Punch, Banner Punch, Crystal Effects, Saleabration Button Pack, Soft Sky Twine ( Saleabration), Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous cards the Design Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with these gorgeous colours too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. I love the way you've cut the sentiment, Jan. And the glimmer on those scoops just adds to the yum! Great card. x

  2. This is so cute Jan, l love how you've cut and stacked the sentiment to echo the words and ice cream...Very clever! xx

  3. This is lovely Jan. I love how you framed the icecream in the offset circle. Such a fresh and fun birthday card! x

  4. Yummy card Jan! And as it is getting a bit warmer this afternoon here, now I really feel like ice cream!!! I really like how you did the sentiment too, a little bit like using a Dymo wheel. Very creative! Take care dear friend. Louise xox

  5. I really love this card, Jan! The embossed background, the cute little flags, and your awesome use of the challenge colours, are all amazing.
