CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Ice Cream Dream

posted in: Cards | 29

Welcome to another blog hop!  The Stamp of the Month hop.  I’m back participating after taking a bit of a break.  If you arrived from Michelle’s Show and Tell blog, you’re on the right track.


This month’s stamp set is super cute!  Just take a look:

S1506 Ice Cream Dream with text


It screams “Summer!” and ice cream happens to be my favourite treat, so this set was yelling my name when I saw it.  🙂

Here’s what I created.

June 2015 sotm card


I really enjoyed colouring in the ice cream truck with my Shin Han markers.  I added a couple strips of washi tape to anchor my truck and then stamped the top banner as well.  I just removed the ink from the little letters beneath the happiness word to make it fit.  The inside of the card has the rest of the sentiment, but I forgot to take a photo of that.  Then I added two strips of washi tape to make the banner pop a bit more.  The white background is embossed with our striped embossing folder.  The pink paper is from the Taste of Summer paper pack.

This is one of the projects people at my new SOTM workshop will get to make.  I’m looking forward to sharing it with them.


Now it’s time to hop on over to Angela’s Luv2Scrapbook blog.  Don’t forget that this stamp set is only available until June 30, so contact your consultant to get your own.

    Nice card, great coloring and that arrow washi tape is perfect. Makes you want to open the card and see what is inside.

      Thanks so much Jeanie! I was hoping that’s what the arrows would do. 🙂

    Adorable card! Great idea to use just a portion of the sentiment. And the arrow Washi Tape really gives the truck some motion.
