Ice cream equals happiness, right?

I had my July Greeting Card workshop recently and this was one of the favorites of the bunch.

Cute, huh?  I hadn't really played with the Seaside Paper Pack until I started designing this card.  I just love the fun stripes and polka-dots.  I've personally never had polka-dotted ice cream, but I'd try it if I had the chance.  :)

I love the sentiment on this card.  We are guilty of having ice cream in our house almost every night and I have to say, we're pretty happy here, hee hee.  

I used the now unavailable June Stamp of the Month called "Ice Cream Dream" on this card.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to have a card class in June, but I still wanted to use this cute stamp set.  I pre-warned my workshop attendees that it wouldn't be available by the time we'd be making this card, so they could pre-order it if they wanted one for themselves.  

This a great stamp set for paper piecing (which I did on the ice cream cone) or coloring with our wonderful markers.  We did a little coloring on the sentiment with two of the Shin Han markers.  I also used a little green epoxy bubble to dot the "i" on "Happiness".   

Here's a closer look at the "Ice Cream Dream" set:
So many cute images, it was hard to decide which ones to use.  Well, thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed the card and please visit again soon.

** Note: And as I've mentioned in my previous posts, I'm also listing some of my cards for sale in both my Etsy shop and my Ebay shop.  You can find the links on the sidebar of this blog.  For the next few months the sales will go towards the cost of a school trip to Italy my 15 year old son will be taking next Spring.  Every little bit helps, right? **
