We all Scream for Ice Cream!
Do kids even still say that these days? The other night hubby and I were eating dinner outside and could hear an ice cream truck in the neighbor. He commented that it didn't sound like it ever stopped or slowed down --- did kids even stop the ice cream truck anymore? I told him I wasn't sure; the few times I've seen it in the neighborhood, it's going so fast I don't know how a kid could possibly find money and make it back out in time to stop him!
I love Ice Cream! If I could eat it for breakfast, I probably would! You can ask Jacquie --- she'll tell you that I'm not fibbing at all. When I saw the June Journaling set by 2RedBananas this month I was sooo excited!! It's a perfect set to capture the heat of June and the beginning of summer! In addition to the ice cream cone there is a popsicle, 3 sentiments and an accent stamp (and only $8 -- what a bargain -- seriously, I just saw the price when I grabbed the link).
If you are not familiar with 2RedBananas stamps, they are made from great rubber, etched DEEP and come mounted on that EZMount stuff. You will have to trim them yourself so make sure you have some of those super scissors to make it quick and effortless!
I decided to create a clear card using the ice cream cone for this set. The base is already polka dotted (Creative Cafe) so gotta love that!
I stamped the cone several times on various papers:
*once completely on white (for the inside message)
*4 times on cream for the bases. They were all trimmed out. The front was embossed and inked.
*3 times on white leaving out the journaling lines for the front, inside front and back.
I used some buttons that Jacquie sent me for my sprinkles. The crisp white-ness of my ice cream is making me think of Dairy Queen ice cream. SOOOO creamy and delicious!! Perhaps we'll have to go grab a cone tonight --- crossing my fingers hubby says yes!!
I hand-wrote my message inside. I can think of several people in my life that are the sprinkles in my life. I certainly hope that I'm sprinkles for someone too!
