June Stamp of the Month - I scream, You Scream....

We all scream for Ice Cream? Well, I know I crave it in the summer time but it has to be from Baskin Robbins. I don't eat it when it is in my freezer though(we have one ice cream monster who can polish off a pint of B&J's right after a full dinner here). I could not wait to start debuting this stamp of the month because it is just so fun to work with. I think I am going to devote several days to this one. It is called Ice Cream Dream and can be yours for $5 with a qualifying order**. Here is the first card I made:

I actually woke up with this layout in my head (which is scary). I love the Seaside Paper Packet and inked the edges (I like the dimension it gives). I colored the ice cream scoops and cone with my Crayola colored pencils. The CTMH Exclusive Inks! Stamp Pads used were (Chocolate, Cocoa, Cotton Candy and Black). 

To make this card cut two 2" squares with your paper Cutter (I used the Surecut Deluxe Paper Trimmer) and cut them in half diagonally. Ink your edges (I use my CTMH daubers from Value Pack) and adhere to the corners. stamp the entire ice cream cone once, then 3 more times for the triple scoop (or twice if you prefer). I used my Duck Easy Stick adhesive to glue it down. I stamped teh sentiment on Colonial White matted it on Saddle a popped it up with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by and I promise to have another card ready for you soon. Until next time...
