Today’s post is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  Amy’s sketch is simple and sweet, so I made a simple and sweet card!


  • I just got the “Honeycomb Happiness” stamp set (a free Sale-A-Bration reward for me), and went straight to the ice cream cone.
  • The patterned paper is from the “Cherry On Top” Designer Series Paper Stack and it was a perfect fit for the stamp, so I followed the sketch and in no time my project came together.
  • I stamped the ice cream cone in Tip Top Taupe ink and sponged in some Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe ink.  It’s been a while since I pulled out my sponges, and I was glad I did.  I was able to get just the right amount of color into the image quickly and easily.


  • After a little fussy cutting, I attached the image to the cropped circles with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals… which, by the way, are on almost every card I make, and added my sentiment banner.

So, pull out some pattern paper, grab a “sweet” stamp, sponge a little ink and create something fun to link up with the Pals.
