Ice Cream

Welcome!  Today is the first time in two weeks that I've had a chance to make a card for myself, ie not for any design team commitments.  And it felt good!  I was a bit rusty at first but came up with this card which uses the "Love" theme at CASology and the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.



I hope this is close enough to the sketch to pass muster - I took a few liberties with the placement of the sentiment!  

I used Simon Says Stamp's Ice Cream Dream set and colored the ice cream with copics to resemble orange choc chip - yum!  I cut that out and popped it up on foam tape after coloring the ice cream with my clear Wink of Stella pen.  For the sentiment, I die cut a circle and placed it on my Fiskars stamp press.  I then curved the sentiment stamp around the circle before removing the circle and stamping the sentiment.



Thanks for visiting.





Products used:

Stamps:  Ice Cream Dream (SSS)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  White, X-Press it
Accessories:  Copics, Wink of Stella

Cheers 
Karren
