You're the Sweetest - Reveal Wheel

After seeing this stamp and die set I just could not resist making a purchase. I think the idea of the reveal wheel is great fun and it can be used with other stamps for other themes. This is a birthday card for my friend, Tracey. She loves glitter and glam so I used glitter paper to depict the flavors on the reveal wheel and plenty of clear Wink of Stella on the ice cream cones.

This card fits the new theme at The Double Trouble Challenge #8 and the Summer Birthday Party Challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy. Pause Dream Enjoy begins on Wednesday, Aug 22, but they will accept projects back-linked to 08/20 provided you are also posted at Double Trouble. We hope you'll check out these fun challenges!


I followed the instructions HERE in order to create my card. I made mine a little different than the samples in the tutorial but the basic method is the same. It takes three sets of dies to make the cards as in the tutorial and I only have two of them so I compensated by simply fussy cutting. Once the reveal part of the card was completed, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the ice cream cones and adhered three of them using foam tape. The cherries were directly stamped and colored. Clear Wink of Stella was added. A panel of dotted glitter paper was adhered to a black card base and the reveal card was adhered to that. The inside of the card was decorated with stamped cherries and a Happy Birthday sentiment.

The Double Trouble Challenge is quite unique and I urge you to explore the blog. Don't forget to link your card at Pause Dream Enjoy as well.

Just for fun, I also submitted this card to the Three Amigos Monthly Challenge #17, whose theme is "A Blast from the Past". I used the "Nom-nom" theme from a previous challenge.
