June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Ice Cream Dream

Are you ready for summer?  Close To My Heart has a sweet stamp of the month set for June: Ice Cream Dream!  We've also got a sweet blog hop with 50 consultants sharing some amazing ideas!  (If you're already hopping, you've arrived from Jen's blog.  After you check out my card, hop on over to Krista's blog next.)
My card began with the June stamp of the month, Ice Cream Dream, the Seaside paper pack, and a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1.  I stamped the main sentiment in Chocolate ink (because of course chocolate goes with ice cream!) and then used my blending pen and Glacier ink to color and highlight the Ice Cream portion.  I distressed the paper pieces with Desert Sand ink.

The ice cream cone was fun to make.  I first stamped it on my card front with Desert Sand ink and then stamped it again on the Sorbet B&T.  I also stamped it once on a scrap piece of paper and cut out the cone section, which I then used as a mask to sponge Desert Sand ink onto the cone on the card.  The next step was to cut out the Sorbet piece, adhere, and "garnish" with a "cherry" (a Coral Reef sequin) on top.  The final touches were the gold shimmer trim and Glacier thick twine.

I hope that I've given you a few quick and easy ideas to use with Ice Cream Dream.  Now go see Krista's cool creation!

Paper piecing - a great way to use this set! :) All I thought of was using the ShinHan markers....thanks for the inspiration! :)

Thank you! I would rather cut than color! LOL I need a ShinHan class, because some of the coloring on this hop is AMAZING.
