Sweet Ice Cream #simplstamping

Each month, Stampin’ Up! offers a #simplestamping challenge. It encourages us to use just rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create handmade, rubber-stamped greeting cards. Through this practice, we show you don’t need a lot of wild and crazy supplies. You can make something pretty and functional with just a few supplies. (Of course, as crafters, we love to have all of the extra goodies; there are so many gorgeous and fun embellishment choices.)

This month’s challenge calls for rubber stamps, ink, paper, and a punch. Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and the coordinating Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch have been popular items. Through the end of June, purchase the bundle and save 10 percent. (Note: These are both available in the new Annual Catalog separately, but not offered as a bundle discount.)

This duo offers the perfect crafting combination. Although ice cream is a great treat anytime, summer is the perfect season!

The Sweet Ice Cream Bundle has been my bundle “binge” this week. I have a tendency to choose to a bundle of Stampin’ Up! products and work with it for a few days or a week, thus binging one it! Once I start creating, the ideas usually flow. It’s fun to see all of the designs that can come from one bundle. Check out this blog post for a video showing how I used these two products to create a fun shaker card.

The card featured above uses one of my current favorite products, the Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

With the start of June, summer officially begins! What treat says summer? Ice cream. (Who I am kidding? Anytime of the year is a good time for ice cream!)

In fact, June 7 marked National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. I created a fun shaker card to share using Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.

This bundle first appeared in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. The good news: It’s also found a spot in the brand-new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

However, a few products used to create the Sweet Ice Cream shaker card (card design inspired by Kim Allen) retire at the end of June (or while supplies last). These include:

  • Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper
  • Blackberry Bliss Stripe Ribbon
  • Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles

As of today’s post, these items are all still available. Click here to view the Last Chance Product List. Some items offered at discounts up to 50 percent off. While supplies last. Another great way to shop the last chance list is to go directly to my online store at kimquade.stampinup.net and view the discounted items there.
