In Summerrrrrrrr!

Brrrrrr!  It's officially Summer, and let me tell you, Olaf does NOT need to worry about melting in our current Midwest low temps, lol!  I am SO excited that June is here at last as well...not only is it my birthday month, but I also positively adore the new Close to My Heart JUNE Stamp of the Month, Ice Cream Dream!  Take a look!

I TOLD you it was super cute!  Here is the first card I made with it...

I used the Puddle Pad technique to drop different colors of reinker on a baby wipe.  Then I chose different images to use in the colorful "puddle."  I completely forgot to take a picture of it, but I used Lagoon, Gypsy, Crystal Blue, Glacier, Pear, and Thistle on this portion.  I random stamped the popsicle for the background...

The Sparkles Flourishes from CTMH made a great swirly exhaust!  Did you know you can cut them apart and rearrange the parts however you like?

It was really fun to find the matching colors to use from my ShinHan Alcohol Ink Markers that I used to color the image of the ice cream truck and the sentiment on the inside. I used Leaf Green, Lavender, Turquoise Blue, and Peony Purple...

If you look back, the green pattern paper I used to mat the front images is from the Blossom Paper Packet.  I cannot get enough of that paper!

I cannot WAIT to show you the other projects I made over the weekend with this set!  :)
