June Stamp of the Month Hop ~ Ice Cream Dream

Here we are at the start of a new month! That means it's time for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for June! If you've come from Tracey Pierce's blog you're on the right track. Just click the link at the end of the post to continue on the hop!

Ice Cream Dream is such a cute stamp set! It reminds me of childhood ice cream occasions, ice cream times with my kids and now ice cream times with my grandkids! 

I decided to use that cute little dog paired up with the Jackson papers. I stamped, colored with markers and then cut out the dog. I did it this way rather than stamping right on the card front because the markers go through the paper. If you prefer to stamp directly onto the card then color, just line the inside of of the card with cardstock or B & T paper. When coloring, I used the Colorless Blender to remove some of the color to create more of a highlight. I also used it to make the shadow lighter.



Ice Cream Dream is only available from June 1-30, 2015. After that is gone, gone, gone! Be sure to get yours right away and start dreaming of ice cream! By the way.... the ice cream in this set is all calorie free!
All products are Close To My Heart:

  2. Love this paper with the little doggy. It reminds me of the little country store near our campground that sells the novelty ice cream!

  6. I love how you used this stamp set with "less traditional" colors/paper packet. Jackson is my favorite and you proved it works with this set!
