I Scream! You Scream!!

I bet you were thinking this was going to be a scary post, weren't you??? Sorry to disappoint you!!! I was surfing the net and at Mary's Creative Juices blog I found the most adorable card.

On hers she had used some glitter on the ice cream parts and I liked it but I thought I would give these tiny glass beads a try. I had gotten some samples of various size beads WAY earlier this year and had not had much time to play with them. I did order some of the extremely tiny clear glass beads. It has the consistency of sand. I had seen something like it at a stamping store many years ago and I believe they called it "Moon Dust." I'll post the information and contact person at the bottom of this post.

I really liked the way that Mary listed the supplies she used and I may have to start doing that with my posts. I like just seeing the list instead of finding each item you need as you read along. I found that scanning the list lets me know quicker if I have all the materials to make the project. So here it goes!!!

Supplies I used to make this item:
Card Stock by Stampin' Up! (SU): Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Kraft scrap
DP - SU Bella Rose
Sentiment- Computer
Scallop circle punch- SU
Photo corner punch- SU
Oval punches - SU
Pearls - SU Pretties Kit
Crystal Effects
Paint Brush
Beads - Deco Bead Depot
Cuttlebug Folder
Close to Cocoa Ink pad

First I punched out the scallops in the three colors listed. I cut the top so it was rounded like the ice cream would be on top of a cone. I taped the three pieces together and brushed a thin layer of Crystal Effects over it and then immediately dipped it in the extremely tiny beads. I tapped off the excess and set it aside to dry. I took a scrap piece of Kraft card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug folder. I cut it to resemble a cone and sponged Close to Cocoa ink over it.

I cut a piece of gingham paper from the Bella Rose collection to measure 4-1/4" x 2-5/8". I cut a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock 1/8" larger than the decorative paper. The Pretty in Pink card stock measures 5-3/8" x 4-1/8".

I ran the words through the computer printer and punched them out. I punched out a pink oval and then using the largest new oval punch I punched out a piece in Chocolate Chip. I taped them all together. After taping the layers on I added the cone and the wording. I set the pearls in place and glued them down with Crystal Effects. I taped on the corner piece and the card was done.

Isn't it just the most adorable thing?? Mary is such a clever person!!!

Ok, about the beads. I got them through Molly at Deco Bead Depot. Her number is 215.635.1366. You will be shocked at all the sizes of no hole beads there are. They even have the ones to do beaded pens with!!! And the colors these beads come in will just astound you too!!! Be sure to tell Molly where you heard about the company. I don't get anything for it but I'm sure she would like to know!

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Wow, you're not kidding, those beads are tiny! And I absolutely love how you used that CB folder. When I look at that folder, all I think is dinosaur or turtle, but ice cream cone? Fabulous!
