Ice Cream Birgitta soaking up the sun!

How about another take on our beloved easel card!

Here’s a little 2 minute video on how I scored and folded the pieces…very easy!


I used Ice Cream Birgitta from the June, CC Designs, Swiss Pixies release.  I stamped her on heavy cold press watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored her with distress inks.  Made a little beach for her with the Fiskars wave border punch,  the Martha Stewart rickety fence border punch and the EK Success sandcastle/beach border punch.  Oh,  I do LOVE punches!  I punched the wave punch out of white cardstock and inked it with Faded Jeans Distress ink and the ink blending tool… then came back and added white accents with a white gel pen.  The puffy little flower stickers here and there are from K & Co.  I purchased them at an independent scrapbook store in Des Moines.  Filmstrips are so fun for embellishing and this new mini die from My Favorite Things is awesome!  love it!  I punched little fishies out of the pattern paper and stuck them behind the open areas.  The small easel is pattern paper I cut up from a 6×6 sheet from the Fancy Pants Beach pad.  Super cute papers for Summer acitivities.

Here’s how the easels fold down, flat, to fit into an envelope…

Just the front…

NEW stamps and more stuff in the store at All That Scraps… HERE…the new Tomboy stamps are sure cute!
