The Sweetest Ever

You're the Sweetest Ever card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Pattern Happy
Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just got the Coolest Ever stamps and dies from Pattern Happy and put them to work on this design. 

I colored one of the set's popsicle images with Copic markers to look like a classic Bomb Pop, then cut out the colored image with the matching die. For an icy look, I brushed a bit of sparkly clear glitter on to the edges of the image using a glitter brush pen.  For the background for the pop, I matted a blue cardstock strip on a shimmery silver cardstock panel, then adhered the layered pieces to a red tone on tone chevron patterned paper.  The set's "you're the sweetest ever" sentiment was stamped on a super narrow red cardstock strip. For extra emphasis, I stamped the word "sweetest" separately and cut it out with the matching die, then used foam tape to position the word.  A trio of sparkling clear sequins were arranged around the popsicle--I imagine them as drips!  The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating blue card base.

Materials Used:
Coolest Ever stamp set, Coolest Ever dies (Pattern Happy); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); clear Sparkle glitter brush pen (Spectrum Noir); Pacific Point cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Recollections Silver cardstock (Michaels); Party Boy 6x6 paper pad (Photo Play); Sparkling Clear sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); foam tape
