Popsicle Card (Open House Make and Take 3)

New new Work of Art stamp set is so versatile!  You can use those shapes for just about anything!  In this case, we used the wide brush stroke image to make popsicles.

Click on image for closer look.

Stamp Sets:
* Work of Art
* A Dozen Thoughts

* Melon Mambo card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2")
* Tangerine Tango card stock (5-1/4" x 4"; 3-1/2" x 1-1/4")
* Whisper White card stock (5" x 3-3/4"; about 3" x 1" for die shape)
* Baked Brown Sugar card stock (scraps for popsicle sticks)

* Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad
* Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin' Pad
* Melon Mambo Classic Stampin' Pad
* Perfect Plum Classic Stampin' Pad
* Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
* Lost Lagoon Classic Stampin' Pad (optional for inside)

Accessories and Tools:
* Big Shot Die Cut Machine
* Chalk Talk Framelits Die
* Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine
* Word Window Punch
* Adhesives:  SNAIL Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals

(Note: Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive was used to assemble card.)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Melon Mambo card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Adhere Tangerine Tango 5-1/4" x 4" card stock to front of card.

3. Use Daffodil Delight ink to stamp wide brush stroke image about 1/2" from upper left corner of Whisper White card stock; clean stamp and repeat using Tangerine Tango ink to the right and overlapping first image by about 1/2"; repeat with Melon Mambo ink; and end with Perfect Plum ink.

4. Punch 4 popsicle sticks from Baked Brown Sugar card stock with Word Window Punch.  Adhere to front of card below brush stroke images (about 1/2" from bottom of card stock).  Adhere Whisper White card stock to front of card over Tangerine Tango card stock.

5. Use Memento pad to stamp "just because" on scrap of Whisper White card stock; cut out image with Big Shot and Chalk Talk Framelits die; adhere to 3-1/2" x 1-1/4" Tangerine Tango card stock.  Wrap Baker's Twine around card stock twice near left end, and tie in a bow.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere card stock to front of card, covering joining of brush strokes and popsicle sticks.

6. Optional:  Use Lost Lagoon ink to stamp one more wide brush stroke image inside card; add popsicle stick.  Since the joining of the brush stroke and the popsicle stick shows on this one, I cut the top of the popsicle stick to fit the bottom of the image, making it look like the popsicle stick is actually inside the popsicle.
I hope you enjoy this card . . . it's a fun summer all-occasion card. Credit for this cute card idea goes to Carol Lovenstein. She actually used the Happy Watercolor stamp set from the 2014 Occasions Mini Catalog, but the design was easily adapted to the Work of Art set. To see Carol's original card, visit her blog at
