Cool Treats

It's summertime and ice cream is a must! What better, non-caloric way to indulge than with the Cool Treats stamp set? My July stamp class attendees made this card. Although we only converted a single strip of Whisper White card stock into designer paper, I would stamp a larger piece and then cut it into strips if preparing to make a number of cards.

We also used the Marbled background stamp. I love it! And it goes so well with the swirled ice cream cone. With my catalog open to page 82 where the Cool Treats stamp set is pictured, I'm noticing the swirled frosting in the Sweet Cupcake stamp set. That, too, would be great with this background. In fact, I can see that background as water or sky for boats or airplanes or birds or... You get the idea.

Trick:  Use grid paper beneath your work. Keep the background stamp rubber side up while inking it. Leave it that way, place your card stock on top and fold over the grid paper while applying smooth pressure to the card stock. You will keep your hands clean and have better control over the inking process.
