United We Flourish Sweet Sprinkles Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to my stop on this super special blog hop. This is a wonderful collaboration between Concord & 9th and Ellen Hutson LLC and we’re thrilled to bring this limited United We Flourish release to you today. I hope that you arrived at my blog from the fabulously talented Emily Midgett’s blog.

I had a lot of fun creating this card for you today. I’ll tell you a few of my little tips and tricks after I show you my card.

I know it’s winter. But who wouldn’t want a shimmery ice cream cone topped with glittery hearts as sprinkles?! I know they make edible glitter powder, but I wonder if it works on ice cream? #ThingsIthinkabout

To create the ice cream and cone: both pieces were die cut from Craft-a-Board and also two pieces of cardstock. (Close in color to the color of the cone and ice cream, but not super important.) Adhere the cardstock to the Craft-a-Board.  By using the Craft-a-Board it keeps all the extra weight that’s being added from bending the shape of the ice cream cone.

Now add a LOT of Embellishment Mousse to the top of the ice cream cone! Use a palette knife to keep it from getting too messy. Or….if you know how to actually bake and that kind of thing (which I don’t) put some of the mousse into a baggie and pipe it onto the ice cream/cupcake topper. Which would look amazing!!

While the Embellishment Mousse is still wet die cut some hearts from red glitter paper and press into the mousse lightly. Set aside to dry. For the cone, stamp the design using Versamark again, onto a Kraft colored cardstock. Then heat set with a gold embossing powder. The center of the cone leave a heart-shaped space. for which there is another die. And I used another piece of red glitter paper to tie it all together.

I love all the soft colors of this card and the gobs of shine, too. This is such a fun stamp and die set that I’m sure you’ll use ALL the time!

    Wow–embellishment mousse! A whole new material to me. Thanks for the cute card and the great ideas.

  2. Julie says:

    Pretty card—love the colors and sprinkle border. Unfortunately, my embellishment mousse has not held up well. It’s the only Nuvo product I’m disappointed in. Do you know if water can be added to reconstitute? I kept it tightly sealed, but it’s like cement (all 5 colors).
