Ice cream anyone?

 Good morning! It's time for my fortnightly Wednesday blogged design team make for Visible Image. I'm delighted to be blogging one of my ice cream samples I made using the awesome new "Better with ice cream" set from the summer stamp release."

I know I am not really allowed to have favourites but to me this is the best ice cream stamp set I have seen in all my nearly 30 years of stamping. It just screams summer! You have the choice of whippy or a 99 or a waffle cone with extra scoops too. There is even a flake to make a "99". The 4 separate sentiments are so cool too.  It's just brilliant.

This is what I got up to;

I used an offcut of one of my shaving foam distress reinker marbled backgrounds and stamped the ice cream part in Versafine Clair "Charming" ink, clear embossed the image and cut out just the ice cream whippy part. 

I then stamped the cone part onto kraft card using Versafine Clair acorn and again clear embossed and cut them out. I tend to make things in batches ever though I was only using 1 cone for my card. That way you always have a ready made image at hand for a quick card when needed.

My background was a distress ink one from my stash using picked raspberry, mustard seed, vintage photo, spiced marmalade and broken china ink pads.

I stamped the sentiments onto white card

and added "strawberry sauce" using Christmas red stickles.
I finished it off with a flake which I made using the stamp on Kraft card with Versafine Clair acorn ink again. 

You can see the process easier in this photo below taken in my studio as I worked.

I added a flake to one of my cones. I stamped the ice cream onto the card front using Versafine Clair Charming, to get the inky drips back, and stuck the ice cream I had made on top. I then put my card together and added my signature sequins as a finishing touch.

Here it is;
