The Spot Challenge #166 Color Challenge with Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Pale Papaya and The Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set

 Hi There!  Happy Tuesday and once again, I hope your week is off to a great start!  Tuesdays mean it's time for another Card Challenge over at The Spot and this week we have a beautiful color combination!

Here in Middle Tennessee it is H.O.T. so I pulled out my Sweet Ice Cream Bundle for a cool card to help me chill out some!  I absolutely LOVE the watercolor look on the popsicle images in this set!  I love this color combination!  I especially loved how the Pale Papaya looks like a lighter version of Calypso Coral!  

I love this beautiful striped DSP from the Pattern Party Stamp Set.  I think it coordinates really well although the color in this paper I believe is Bermuda Bay instead of Coastal Cabana.. oh well just a bit darker but still looks great I think!

Here's the inside of my card...

Once again, I went for a Gatefold Card because well... I love me a good Gatefold Card!  Here are the details in case you'd like to CASE it!

  • Stamp Set - Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set
  • Die Set - Hippo & Friends  Dies (labels) 
  • Embossing Folder - Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (for Basic White label)

  • Inside Layers: Pale Papaya 5-3/8" x 4 1/8", Basic White 5-1/4" x 4"

  • Embellishments -  Baker's Twine Essentials Pack (15" White), Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon (approx 3" scrap) and 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (Pale Papaya)

Cut and score the Coastal Cabana Card Base and layer on the Pale Papaya Cardstock and Pattern Party DSP on each side using Multipurpose Adhesive.  Cut the labels using the Hippo and Friends Dies.  Emboss the Basic White label with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere the labels together with Multipurpose Adhesive with the White embossed label on top.  Adhere Dimensionals to the left side of the back of the labels so that the Labels only adhere to the left side of the Gate.  With Basic White scraps stamp two Popsicles using Coastal Cabana full strength ink on the bottom layer of the Popsicles and stamping the top layer with 2nd Generation Coastal Cabana. Using full strength Coastal Cabana Ink add the confetti circles at the upper part of the Popsicle.  Stamp one Popsicle Calypso Coral for the bottom layer and Pale Papaya for the top layer and use the Calypso Coral Ink for the confetti circles at the upper part.   Stamp the Popsicle sticks with Crumb Cake Ink as well as the wood grain stamped layer.  Fussy cut the 3 Popsicles out.... I know, I know.. we all hate fussy cutting but I promise these are super easy!  Adhere the bottom two popsicles with Multipurpose adhesive on the Label Layers.  The top Popsicle can be popped up with Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment in Calypso Coral Ink onto a small scrap of Pale Papaya Ink and cut apart and into three small strips.  Cut some small strips of Dimensionals (I use the edges) and adhere to the back of the three sentiment strips and add to the Label section of the card. Run some White Baker's Twine along the left gate of the card and adding the small piece of Pale Papaya Ribbon before tying in a knot in the upper left.  Trim the ends to finish them off and adhere a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place.  I like to unravel the ends of the Baker's Twine.  Finish the front of the card off by adding three of the Pale Papaya Jewels.  To finish off the inside, stamp Happy Birthday in Calypso Coral on the Basic White layer and add some of the confetti circles in the lower right corner using in Pale Papaya Ink.  Add the Basic White inside layer to the Pale Papaya with Multipurpose Adhesive and then add the matted layer to the inside with more of the Multipurpose Adhesive.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
