For my first tasty treats card, I stamped the dish of ice cream first with Memento, colored it with Copics, then stamped over it with Versafine. It really brings out the details this way! After die cutting, I layered it on a larger label that was brayered with a rainbow ink pad. I used the same ink pad to brayer the large background then stamped the diagonal rows with the silhouette image from the What’s the Scoop set. I used a banner die to cut the greeting & the outer die of the Flourished Star Pattern set to cut the outermost layer. Stickles was added for some sparkle.
Here’s a look at the inside using pieces leftover from the card front & also the Copics I used to color the image.

My second tasty treat, started much as my first…stamped, colored & stamped over with Versafine, then I fussy cut it.
The greeting sign was also colored & fussy cut before both were added to the die cut label and then to a larger peachy orange label. I stamped the pennant swag to match the paper I used & die cut with the matching pennant die. I also used one of the greetings to stamp in tone on tone colors on top of the designer paper background. Again, I added stickles for sparkle.
Here’s the inside and also the Copics I used to color it.
