MFTeaser, CCEE Challenge

Thanks for all the awesome birthday wishes for Cara---she was so surprised with that AND with her new phone. I will be back tomorrow with a picture from her special day---until then---a MFTeaser for you!

This card features two of the new sets that will be available from My Favorite Things on Wednesday (June 4)! The ice cream dish is from Here's the Scoop and the cool circular "Congratulations" design and the sentiment is from Congrats All Around.

I created this card using the MFT sketch of the week (MFTSC33).
I also used this for my CCEE Monday challenge--which was to create a card using paper piecing. (I pieced the sundae dish and the ice cream!)

I colored the chocolate syrup with Copics and applied a layer of clear embossing powder on top to give it some shine. The cherry is dotted with red stickles. I completed the look by adding some Hero Arts gemstones to the corners of the main panel.

The bottom black layer is punched with my new Fiskars Threading Water punch. Love that toy! Finally, I added some fun May Arts ribbon!

Here is a close-up of the ice cream image. I pierced holes around the edges of the main panel and the layered panel.

Materials used: Stamps-Here's the Scoop, Congrats All Around (My Favorite Things); cardstock-white, celery, black (Stampin' Up!); Designer paper-American Crafts; brilliance black ink; certainly celery classic stamp pad (Stampin' Up!); Clear embossing powder (SU!); heat tool; versamarker (SU!); Threading water punch (Fiskars); red stickles (Ranger); Copic markers; ribbon (May Arts); Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); paper piercing tool and mat pack (Stampin' Up!); Hero Arts gemstones.

Cammie - I just left a comment on your blog candy entry - but accidently pushed enter before I filled out the name information. It's #263 - I also entered #262 because you're on my google reader. I couldn't add another comment on that one to correct it because that would have given me 3 entries. So I am leaving it here.
