Ice Cream Cone Birthday Wishes

A Sweeeeet Little Girl deserves a Sweet Card!
My Best Friend's Daughter, Becca,
inspired this sweet ice cream cone birthday card....
 
With a few swipes of a baby wipe and the use of our
FREE (during Sale~A~Bration!) Diagonal Score Board
this 3D card comes to life....
Accented by the FREE (during Sale~A~Bration)
Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons as highlights to this card... the Large Pearl from the Jewels Pack is a perfect fit!
Our Simply Scored Board is AMAZING...
with many different possibilities...
It creates a fun texture here with the Diagonal board
(free during Sale~A~Bration w/every $50 purchase - pick any one item!) and see the NEW Boarders Scoring Plate (Spring Mini).  Creating this pattern is ideal for the 'cone'!

Taking a Baby Wipe and applying a couple of drops of Pretty In Pink Re-Inker - I swirled it across the top of the Glossy White Card stock... it reminds me of a Frozen Yogurt that my girls would eat!
 
 
Using the Apothecary Accents Framelits and Big Shot I punched out this 'ice cream' and cut it in 1/2!  I can now make more than one card!
 
Cutting a 1/2" strip as the cone lip I built this card....
 
The Perfectly Penned Happy Birthday is an ideal sentiment for this vintage card.... doesn't ice cream cones make you feel a little vintage??  Another 'frame' popped out with the Apothecary Accents framelits!
Layered over this STUNNING and Vintage
More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini!) goes to show that it's great for non-Valentine's cards, too!
 
Using my Hot Glue Gun and I created this 3D look... Simply adhere one side and then bow the other before applying the hot glue!  I then applied the cone 'lip' to the 'ice cream' and adhered and bowed it the same way... the same with the sentiment!  It is not too bowed so it's still perfect to ship!
My BFF is a wonderful woman - all pink, her and her daughter, lol... I know that my 'neice', as I think of her, Becca will LOVE this card for her 8th Birthday!  This little love of a girl deserves sweets and hearts on her day!
 
The Great thing is that though I'm in California, she's in Texas (boooo) I can send her this love and feel like I'm celebrating with her!
 
How can YOU use paper's ear marked for an occasion
 (like this More Amore DSP) for other occasions?!?!  Christmas Paper for Valentines or Birthdays?!?! 
Have fun and don't let labels limit you or box you in!
 
See what item(s) are YOUR favorite in the Spring Mini and Sale~A~Bration mini... let me know by leaving me a comment and I will make a card with it!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
