Cool Treats

Hello and welcome! Phew is it hot here on the South Coast of New South Wales, 42 degrees as I write this post. When I saw the gorgeous colour combination for the Global Design Project #GDP121 I thought of summer and what a better delicious summer treat than ice cream. So for this week's challenge I have used the Cool Treats Stamp Set and it's coordinating framelits Frozen Treats for my projects.

For my first project I have made a Z-card. I have used the sprinkles stamp to create my own background then die cut ice creams and adhered them to the front panel with Stampin' Dimensionals. The link for the cutting instructions for this card can be found here

At this moment I am waiting to hear news of the birth of my newest Grandchild. Bub's due date is next Tuesday and Mum is in the early stages of labour so it could be at any tick of the clock (or not).

What do you do to fill in anxious hours? You stamp of course! So I have created a huge mess in my craft room and continued with the GDP colour challenge.

Of course I couldn't ignore the products in the newly released Occasions Catalogue. The Lots to Love Box Dies and a packet of the new Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes where still sitting on my desk, left over from my Friday night Stamp Club, so I set about making a box containing coordinating cards using the Cool Treats Stamp Set.

To decorate the outside I made a shaker box containing the Iridescent Sequins .

For this card I have used the baby wipe technique to give the ice-cream a yummy gelato look.

Blue Icy Poles, or Ice Blocks as we call them, were something new and a real novelty when I was a kid. A really cool summer treat.

 I have used the baby wipe technique again for the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment continuing to use the sprinkles stamp for the background.

  The little wafers on top of the ice creams are die cut cones trimmed to size.

I know there have been a number of inquires as to the use of the notch dies in the Lots to Love Box dies. I thought you may find this helpful. The 'Wendys' gift voucher might be appropriate to go with the ice cream theme.

Thank you for calling by today and I hope you have found inspiration from my projects. I think sometimes with the release of our new catalogues we tend to forget about the many treasures in our main catalogue so I think it is always good to go back and revisit them.

Feel free to visit my online store and don't forget that Sale-a-Bration is in full swing. A great way to earn FREE products and cross those must haves off that never ending wish list.

Until next time Happy Stamping.
