Take a look at my planner page:

way to sweet stamp set

Today is National Simplicity Day, so I decided to keep my planner page as simple and fun as possible.

The warm weather has me eating ice cream everyday! My favorite ice is strawberry and thought it would be cool to showcase that in my panner.

Here’s how I created this planner page:

Stamp two ice cream cones and a heart from Altenew’s Way Too Sweet Stamp Set on the bottom left hand corner of the planner page.

Use the Artist Markers R301, R302, R304 and Y612 to color in the ice cream cones.

Print out a photo, round the corners with We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Use a penblade and cut out a portion of the heart so that the photo can sit behind it.

Adhere the photo with Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the sentiment under the photo and done!!!

Keeping the page since and simple!

What is a blog hop without an amazing gift? Yayyy!!

Here’s the Scoop Gift Card

Concord and 9th

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today showcasing the yet another stamp set from Concord & 9th August Release.

Today it’s all about ice cream with the Here’s The Scoop stamp and die set!!

Let’s take a look:

Here's the Scoop

Isn’t this gift card just the cutest?  I love that the ice cream scoops was big enough to create a mini card.

Here’s how I created this gift card:

  • Stamp the ice cream scoop onto white card stock in black ink.
  • Using Prima Coloring Pencils, color the image the colors of your choice.  I used PC 920 (light green), PC924 (crimson red) and PC 1082 (Chocolate).
  • Use the Here’s the Scoop Die to cut that image out.
  • Cut a second one to create the gift card.
  • Score the second ice cream scoop on the left side and apply adhesive.
  • Adhere the two pieces together pieces together.

Here's the Scoop

  • Slide your card and gift card inside the envelope to send off to the recipient.

Nice, clean and simple.  This mini card was so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless.
