Ice-cream is my all-time favorite dessert and this is my inspiration for today’s project.  I am showcasing the Summer Scoops Stamp Set and Dies, along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die set , Slimline Frames & Windows Die set and the Banner Trio Die Set.  Some people celebrate with champagne, I celebrate with ice cream!

 

 

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

The background scallop was die-cut using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set on some Neenah Solar White card stock.  I adhered this on some Blue slimline card base.  The yellow frame was die-cut using the Slimlines Frames & Windows die set and foam mounted onto the card for added dimension.

 

I adhered the colored images on the card with foam and liquid adhesive to make it look more cohesive.

 

 

I die-cut the sentiment strip using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my Wagner heating tool.  I foam mounted this sentiment strip on my card.

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen and drew some lines and dots to the images for added texture.  Here’s another look:
