My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 90 Ice Cream Cone / Dish

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month! Of course, ice cream is good any month! I am the hostess for this challenge and thought we could have fun with this cold, yummy treat! Our challenge is to use an ice cream cone or dish of ice cream on your card, layout, or 3D project!
My ice cream cone is made using Cricut Project Cartridge Sweet Tooth Boxes. This is one of the fun images on the cartridge that caught my eye and I just had to buy it several months ago. Would you believe this is my first time to try the ice cream cone! The ice cream cone is the second image on each row. For best results, the instructions are to cut the images at 9.5" or larger. I used 9.5" and the finished cone stands about 7.5".
Designer paper is Basic Grey Eva Collection pack that I have been hoarding for a long time! I think the paper is too pretty to cut but I did it!
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Hearts design B is used on the pink ice cream.

Just Rite Stamps- Be Happy Set. Sentiment is stamped with green Martha Stewart ink. Pink trim is from design team sister, Charlotte. I am loving these trims! Green flower is Prima Flowers. Buttons are from the Eva Collection and the green and pink bows are DMC Memory Thread. There is a cut for a cherry to be placed on top of the cone, but I chose to use the button and bow.

I cut the Cone Layer 3 which is the white circle with the opening that is seen in the above photo. For a special treat, a cupcake can be set inside the opening. I had difficulty trying to get a good photo. My cupcake seemed a bit small for the opening and the chocolate curls started melting. After this one photo, I decided that I needed to eat the cupcake! It was yummy -bought from Wal-Mart bakery. Now I will have to add candy inside the cone!

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see the lovely projects by our guest designer and the talented design team. For more information about the projects, please visit the individual blogs. We appreciate your visits and comments on our blogs!
Now it is your turn to play along with us. We look forward to seeing your ice cream cones/ ice cream dishes. One person will be chosen to be our next guest designer and several Ohh la la awards will be given.

BBTB2 - Fashion Show

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope your Monday is off to a good start! 
At BBTB2, it is time for another fun and inspirational challenge. Our talented design team sister Rebekah is the hostess and she chose "Fashion Show" for the theme. We are asked to use any fashion themed cut from any Cricut cartridge on our card, layout, or project. Sounds fun, huh! Well, put your sunshades on and I will tell you about my card! How about Zebra flair and a Red formal dress!

Cricut Cartridge: Formal Occasion
Working with Cricut Class Room, I welded 2 frame layers to make this unique card shape. The card is welded at the top. The image is on page 25 and uses the frame layer on shift cut at 5". The card is cut from Colorbok white cardstock. Frame layer on shift is cut again at 5" using the zebra print paper by g.c.d. studios Swirls and Curves. Frame layer no shift is cut from Red Recollections paper for the red accent edging. I like the shape of the card with all the swirls and curves!
Page 25- Dress is cut 3" and pop-dotted on the card base.
Phrase "Winter Formal" is cut at 1.25". This uses 4 different cuts to get this look. I offset this a bit on the top edge of the card and glued it.
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots used on the dress layers.
3 Girl Jam - Holly Berry crinkle ribbon for the bow. 

Stop by BBTB2 and see all the amazing projects by the design team. For more details on the projects, please visit the individual blogs and leave some love for the designers! We love your visits and comments!
Now it is your turn to play along with us. Remember, this is a Cricut challenge and you must include a Cricut cut for the fashion theme of the challenge. Also, this is a new challenge and we ask that you do not submit any posts that have been posted on your blog before today's date Monday July 16.
