My first entry to The Play Date Cafe

I really enjoyed getting the chance to stamp yesterday, so I thought I'd find a challenge and keep creating. I loved the colours in The Play Date Cafe Challenge #94.

These colours scream male to me... yet somehow I got something very different! I was going to do some lovely pennants hanging from the corner of the card. I showed Miss 8 my punched Pennant peices and she said.... "they could be ice-cream cones" - that just goes to show that even at 7am kids still think of ice-cream....lol! I was like, well yes, they could! But how would I do the 'ice-cream'? And then it came to me.... the Cupcake Builder Punch!

Finding a sentiment to go with ice-cream was a little tricky so I dug deep into the cupboard and pulled out this saying from a retired hostess set. It seemed so appropriate!

To get the ice-cream to have the criss-cross effect, I put it through the crimper twice. The first time it doesn't matter how tight you hold the crimper, but you have to let it release a little bit for the opposite lines.

Card: More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Island Indigo
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Island Indigo
Punches: Pennant Punch, Cupcake Builder
Tools: Crimper
Stamp Set: Time Well Spent (retired hostess set)

Till next time, happy stamping...
