Wrap It Up With Ribbon this Time!

Wow, I almost confused my self right out of entering a contest!  I didn't realize until I was making my project that there were TWO current Wrap It Up contests going on!

On Monday I posted a simple, yet awesome pillowbox gift card holder.  Today, I made another box that has a "thanks" rather than a birthday theme for the Peachy Keen Wrap It With Ribbon Challenge.  This one also pays tribute to one of my favorite summertime treats--ICE CREAM!  Heart 2 Heart has posted their third July challenge, I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for ICE CREAM, so I am linking up there too!  :)

Guess what!?  Another challenge to play!  Thanks to L.B. for pointing me to the Die Cuttin Divas Challenge Blog where they are having an Ice Cream Challenge too!  :)


I used two retired Close to My Heart My Acrylix sets for this project, Fanfare and Thank You.  The colors are super-yummy together in Cotton Candy and Pear!  I had to make the little guy with the face into a chip mint scoop, my kiddos' favorite!!!  His adorable face is from the Peachy Keen January 2013 Kit.  I used my black stickles for the little chocolate chips.  The cone is stamped in Cashmere Ink to keep things light and refreshing.


The White Daisy base of my box is stamped with first and second generation images of Cotton Candy Ink.  One ink pad=two or more different shades of that color, did you know?  I added that adorable little strip of Lagoon Houndstooth washi just like I did on the box I posted Monday.


Don't you think a great way to say thank you is with a gift card for your favorite ice cream shoppe?  I do!  :D

You have the rest of July to play along over at H2H for their Ice Cream challenge, so go ahead and use your CTMH products to join in on the fun! 

Now, all this talk about ice cream makes me want to go EAT some ice cream!  What is your favorite flavor?  Mine is either cherry amaretto at Culver's or Cake Batter at Cold Stone!  YUMMO!!!

  2. I seldom regret passing on a stamp set. I have gazillions and really don't need another one, but I still wish I'd gotten that Fanfare set because I love, love, love, love, love that ice cream cone!!
