Sweet As Can Be

It is no secret that all of us cardmakers have way too many stamps and have a hard time using everything that we have.  Today I am sharing a card I made with some dies and stamps I am just getting around to using.  A few months ago I bought the dies for PTI's Sweet As Can Be set and both stamps and dies for Half and Half.  I have had them quite a while now and had only opened and put them away in their CD case.  Finally, I have broken them out and I am so glad that I did.  I made this card in minutes, that was how quick it came together.
Isn't this pretty and almost good enough to eat?
I chose felt colors that looked to me like rainbow sherbet.  The cardstock is melon berry stamped in versamark with IO CAC "Distressed Dots".  I love that I only have to stamp one time and cover the whole card.  I did the same thing with the Half and Half diecut using versamark to stamp IO CAC "Gingham".  The ice cream cone is cut from kraft cardstock and embossed with the SU Square Lattice embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment in from Half and Half in dark chocolate ink and wrapped some brown/white twine around the diecut.  Originally, I only had the rhinestone sprinkles on the top scoop of ice cream, but my daugher Carly said, "There can never be enough sprinkles!", so rhinestones are EVERYWHERE.  Thanks for taking a look at my Sweet as Can Be card.

This is just too yummy for words. I just love it. Rainbow sherbet it is. What a brilliant idea to combine half and half with the ice cream dies. Love the bling, too!! I may just have to make one of these for myself.

This one truly is as "Sweet As Can Be" with the sherbet cone and all it's bling. Wish I could say I put something as yummy as this together in minutes. Great choice of colors and stamp sets, Cathy!

this is just way to sweet. I do plan to case it too. I love the look of the felt ice cream scoops and I still have not inked my hald and half stamps, so now I am really inspired.
