Dreaming of......Ice Cream

Hello, my sweet and creative friends!  Welcome to my little piece of blog land, and thank you for visiting me today.  I saw the sweetest inspiration photo over on the Taylored Expressions Blog and fell in love with it.  I just knew that I had to play along.  I was able to implement so many of my favorite elements on this project including a glassine bag, wool felt, sequins, a paper straw and wooden spoon.  SO cute!
I used a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper that I inked, stamped with a background stamp, and tucked inside.  I also added a cute little flag to it.  The glassine bag is decorated with a three-scoop ice cream cone that's cut from Taylored Expressions' wool felt using a Papertrey Ink die-cut.  It's just so yummy, it makes me crave more ice cream.  YUM!
I took a few different pictures of my project so that you could see the stamping on the tag I inserted.  I added a small pocket on the back side so that I could include a gift card for ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Here's where I'm linking my delicious creation:

Taylored Expressions - Share Joy Challenge #42 - Sketch and Photo Inspiration Challenge - I absolutely fell in love with this sweet photo inspiration, and just had to create something inspired by it.  I used Taylored Expressions wool felt in Cherry Blossom,  HoneydewKhaki,  and Butter.

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - Simon Says Tic-Tac-Toe.  I used the top line across with Sequins, Gold and Stamp.  What a sweet combination.  I have "yellow gold" in my ice cream cone, and "metallic gold" in my flag.  The stamping is on the tag.

Your Next Stamp - Challenge #42 - I used the photo inspiration, and those yummy colors!  I made an ice cream cone with pink, green and yellow and added the paper straw as seen in the photo.  FUN challenge, and I just LOVE YNS!

Sweet Stamps Blog:  June Challenge - Anything But a Card - This sweet little bag and tag was created to give an ice cream gift card.  I stamped a background image on the tag that's inside the bag, which you can see in my second photo.

Thanks again for stopping by to take a peek.  I hope you're enjoying your week, and that you're taking time to be creative.  I'm so grateful to have you visit me.  If you're ever in Las Vegas, you're welcome to stop by to do some card-making with me; but make sure you bring ice cream!  LOL
