For today’s Fabulous Friday post with the Sisters In Stamping blog, designers were given a color combination challenge – Mint Macaron and Chocolate Chip.  Since this is National Chocolate Mint day, and my favorite of all time ice cream is mint chocolate chip, I knew exactly where this was going!  This entire project was inspired by Melissa Davies (see her original work here), and I just had to try it myself!

I love the Sprinkles of Life stamp set in this year’s annual catalog.  By purchasing this set, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) keeps families together when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home. Help Stampin’ Up!® support families through RMHC. Buy the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and STAMPIN’ UP! WILL DONATE $3 TO RMHC. Together we can make a difference.  Awesome, right!?!

Look how easy it is to make a yummy ice cream cone with this stamp set and the Tree Builder Punch.  I created a chocolate topping (imagine, syrup, hot fudge, or magic shell) by mixing Crystal Effects and Chocolate Chip Ink Refill drops.  You can see how shiny the chocolate topping is, it almost looks real!  I do think it is a bit too dark, so next time I’ll add fewer ink drops until I get it to the desired shade.

My sweet sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration Honeycomb Happiness stamp set.  And the baker’s twin is actually from the Baker’s Twine Combo Pack in the Occasions catalog.  I just removed the black from the Mint Macaron and Melon Mombo and combined the two.  Here is a final look at today’s project, and the coordinating envelope.

It’s supposed to be a warm weekend in my area, so I think this card is inspiring me to share an ice cream cone with some of my favorite people!  Hope you do the same!
