We All Scream for Ice Cream ~Triple Scoop Card

Who doesn't like Ice Cream?  What's your real life favorite?  I love all things Oreo and mint.  But, my favorite time of year is the fall when Pumpkin ice creams come out.  John will sweetly drive me 30 minutes to the opposite side of town so I can get a waffle cone scoop of one of thier pumkin varieties.  I think my fave might be Pumkin Praline Cheescake.  Can you tell I am counting down until October when they arrive?!
Enough about me and my Ice Cream Obsession, now to the cards..

Yesterday I posted a quick & easy card using the new Pennant collection from Stampin' UP.  
Petite Pennants Builder Punch

The "cone" was made using the above punch and coordinating stamp set Pennant Parade 
{Doesn't it totally look like a waffle cone?}
The "ice cream" part was made using the Cupcake Punch from Stampin' Up.

Isn't that clever?  I would love to take credit for it but I saw numerous examples from a variety of demonstrators.  It is so nice to have a community of creative people to be inspired by all the time!
Here are 2 similar cards I did, the only difference is the type of glitter I used.  
I wish I had taken a better close up for the glitter.  It didn't quite catch their glimmer and chunky factor.  Sorry about that.

You could do this for a lot of the other flavors, too.  I can totally see Mint Chocolate Chip being done.
I like this basic template for quick & easy cards, too.  Can you see the similarity?
If you can get a basic template in your head, it doesn't matter the color scheme or final decorative pop, they will be easy to create and come out pleasing to the eye.
Again, as I said in yesterday's post, these are quick & simple cards I am showing because I truly believe that at least 90% of stampers prefer these quick projects.  At least I bet my mommy friends would!
And remember, if you are going to make 1 of these cards, make 10!  It takes about the same time to cut, stamp & assemble and then you have a nice little stash!  
Thanks for stopping by today.  More simple cards to come!
