Dies R Us ~ Just Desserts

Hello stamplings ~  There's a new challenge starting up today over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog and the theme is "Just Desserts".  This is right up my alley, as I have a sweet tooth that doesn't quit!!

 Ice cream and summer time just go together.  Don't you think?  I pulled out my favorite Sue Wilson Ice Cream Sundae set and created a pop-up card just for you!

I'll start with the outside of the card first.  I used some fun polka dotted paper in cherry red and cut a scalloped frame using Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Rectangles and Stitched Rectangles.  The Cherry sprig is from Spellbinders "Market Fresh" and the sentiment is from Sue Wilson "A Little Birdie Told Me".

Inside the card is where the fun begins!  I used Elizabeth Craft Designs General Pop-Ups to create the pop up portion of the card.  I added the sweet Ice Cream Sundae from Sue Wilson, cutting the ice cream cup in silver mirror paper and adding two scoops of ice cream, because one scoop is never enough!

  This set comes with the sweet little wafers, cones and candy sticks.  Aren't they cute??  A Sundae isn't a Sundae without chocolate on top, so I added some using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Small Cupcake".  Don't forget the Cherry (or two) on top!  The fun little banner is from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Lot's of Pops"

 I added space on the bottom of the card for the message using Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Squares and Stitched Squares.  See the little silver spoon on the bottom right corner?  That's included in the Sue Wilson set too.  She didn't overlook a single detail when she came up with this set.

 I hope you enjoyed today's project and are inspired to play along.
You can find all the details and join in on the fun by clicking here.  You could be the next winner of a DRU Gift Certificate!

I'll be entering this card into the Cut It Up challenge.  The theme is "I Scream, You Scream, We ALL Scream for Ice Cream!"

I wanted to remind you that we have some exciting news to share with you.  Dies R Us now has opened a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!  We'd love for you to visit by clicking on the links above or by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by!
