I Scream for Ice Cream!

Happy Summer!  I have another Summertime Fun card for A Blog Named Hero because its definitely summer here in Texas. Not only is school out, but the humidity and heat here will fog up anyone’s glasses once they exit a building. Welcome to the sauna that is Houston summers. When it summer here, you stay inside as much as possible (unless you have a pool) and eat as much cold stuff to try to cool down. So today, I made another card using the fun Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream set. Can you really have too much ice cream?

I started out making a background on some white cardstock and scoring the top several times. Then, using some scratch pieces of paper, I made a stencil and blended Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to make lines. I then stamped the first layer of the ice cream and cone in Hero Arts Butter Bar and Caramel ink. I had some Brutus Monroe Lemon and Ranger Walnut Stain embossing powder and thought it would add some fun dimension and so I stamped the second layers in Versamark ink and heat embossed them.

I also heat embossed the sentiment in white and die cut it into a small circle. Both the cone and the sentiment are attached with foam tape to add additional dimension.

To finish the card off I added some sequins and twine.

I hope your summer is starting off well. Don’t forget to play along with this month’s challenge – Summertime Fun!

I can’t wait to see what you create!
