Hero Arts: National Ice Cream Month



In case you haven't heard, July is National Ice Cream Month!  No surprises but my favorite ice cream is coffee...THIS is my favorite Ben & Jerry's.  Mmmmm....I want ice cream now!  Let's get to my card, shall we?!  One of my favorite summer time colors is Hero Arts' Tide Pool...team it up with charcoal and it's a winner in my book!

Let's start with the base and work our way up.  I used a charcoal base and clear heat embossed the Glasses Bold Prints.  Such a fun background, love how it looks stamped in Versamark and clear heat embossed!


The Pool Mix Layering papers = one of my favorite collections.  The colors are sooo pretty!  Love how you can stamp other colors and they look perfect.   Check out the Color Layering Ice Cream cone!  I started with Soft Vanilla and layered Soft Brown on top.  The ice cream scoop is Tide Pool with Versamark + clear embossing powder.  

A postal friendly card with a ton of texture, gotta love that!

Another busy weekend in store....yesterday was spent with the kids.  We had brunch at this cute restaurant called The Fat Hen:



The wait was worth it, everything was delish!

Have a great day!

  5. Mmmmm....ice cream..... Delicious card, Amy. The Tide Pool is most definitely a perfect summer color, and I do love it with the gray. The clear embossed sunglasses just add that bit of 'wow' without overtaking the ice cream cone. Sweet card!! Bev
