Fiskars Cloud Punch as Ice Cream

I'm in need of another birthday card to mail off in a few days.  It's for another little cutie, so I wanted something sweet to match her personality.  Ever since I got this Fiskars large cloud squeeze punch, it's been begging to be used to make ice cream, but I kept putting it off for other projects.  Today, it finally got its chance and now I can't wait to go buy another one in the extra-large size so I can do even more with it!

Here's what I came up with:

Don't those pretty scoops look just like fruity sherbet?  I am in LOVE!!  (The papers are all from the current Dotty For You promotion pack from Close To My Heart.)  Of course I had to make a great sugar cone to stack the scoops on, so I trimmed a piece of Creme Brulee CS (one of the colors in the plaid as well) into a cone shape.  I pulled out my handy Fiskars trimmer and a scoring blade, and scored diagonal lines in both directions on the shape.  I then flipped the CS over so the lines were raised, and lightly sanded to reveal just a bit of the white core.  Here's a closeup:

A super easy texture to reproduce.  Don't worry about getting everything perfect; no one is going to notice!  They'll be too busy looking at those cute scoops!


  1. Good idea. Could use it for a cupcake top, too. ;)

  2. What a great idea. I love this! The dotted paper is perfect for the different layers of ice cream.

  3. Fab card and super icecream - love the papers you have used too!!!

    I look forward to giving my cloud punch an icecream workout soon - thank you for the inspiration :)
