I've avoided using embossing paste due to the expense (both of the paste and for the stencils) and mess, but finally broke down and got something similar, light modelling paste. I made some stencils of my own using my Silhouette and some acetate sheets, though I didn't use one for this card. This card was patterned off of this card by Jennifer McGuire.
I started out by cutting my cone and wafer out of gold cardstock. I then scored the diagonal lines using a score board.
For the ice cream scoops, I put some ink on a piece of plastic (I used a spellbinder's package, as it had edges to keep the modelling paste contained so I didn't make too much of a mess and could easily clean it off), then used it to colour some modelling paste. The pink dye ink turned out to be too light, so I added some watercolour marker to it (scribbling on another part of the plastic and then mixing the colour in). I used a palette knife to spread the paste onto the card in the lightly penciled area. I used another marker for the blue ice cream, after cleaning off my palette. I pressed the wafer into the paste.
I used the same markers to colour the stamps for the sentiment so they'd match. A few hours later my card was dry with a very cool almost spongy texture to the ice cream.
