Sweet Scoops for Mojo Monday

Stampin up mojo monday sweet scoops

This week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO137) made my heart pump in technicolor.  I loved Julee's layout suggestion to create a vertical stack of blocked colors.  I'm never shy of color and Tempting Turquoise (the ultimate for Blue Moon ice cream), Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy offer a bright and fun way to surprise my soon-to-be six year old grand nephew, Ashtin.


I used the reverse kissing technique to create texture for the ice cream cone.  I simply inked up the ice cream stamp from Sweet Scoops stamp set (now available for purchase from the Summer Mini Catalog) and then "kissed" it, directly to the rubber with the texture stamp.

Here's a little before and after.  See the delicious difference?

  • Stampin up mojo monday sweet scoops close up The background texture is absolutely luscious.  It was created using the Stampin' Up! Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing folder, new from the Summer Mini (a Stampin' Up! exclusive).  

  • I used a 1 1/4" Square Punch to create even blocks for the vertical row of color.  1 1/4" was too big at full size so I cropped them to 1" x 1 1/4".
  • For added pizzazz, I layered the smaller star over the larger with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I don't know if I ever create a card without my budget-friendly Stampin' Dimensionals.
