Cheers With a Cherry On Top

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #157 – colours.


And here is my take:

Cheers with a Cherry on Top | by karen @ carefree creations

When I saw those colors the first things I saw was ice cream (but then I can see ice cream in just about anything). Even knowing what I was going to stamp, it took me some time to figure out how. When I was playing around with composition, I had two cones bumping each other and that reminded me of two glasses doing “cheers”; I liked that concept. The clincher was pairing “cheers” with the rest of the sentiment…I loved that!

The “cheers” sentiment is a die-cut. I layered 3 cut-outs together…that really is so much easier than trying to cut and place tiny bits of dimensional adhesive.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The colours are perfect for this theme, beautifully done and makes me want ice cream even though it’s SO cold here today! Hugs Bev x

  2. To you it said icecream, to me, cake. I think we are two of a kind! Great card, the teaming up of those two sentiments is genius. Love it!

  3. I love your ice creams, it just made perfect sense when I saw it. I especially like the idea of them saying “cheers” to each other 🙂 Caro x

  4. Of course, the ice cream wouldn’t clink like glasses, but the “cheers” idea is definitely evident. I like how stacking the die cuts makes the word seem even bolder. I also like that you’ve popped up the cherries. It’s just an all-around super card, Karen! 🙂

  5. The cheers is inspired! Although after 18 inches of snow, today I don’t feel like ice cream but your card could persuade me!! It’s a really fun card. Liz x
