Ice cream – yum!

Imagine That’s Progressive Challenge for June features a portable ice cream parlour, what more  could you want on a hot summer’s day?

Materials used:SAM_1774(watermarked)
Imagine That Digi Set – Ice Cream Parlour
Deedee’s Digi Stamp Set – Ice cream truck
white stamping card
black and stripy card
white A4 sheet of card to made card blank
Copic pens

I printed out the image and the greeting onto the white stamping card along with some extra smaller images and greeting to make into ATC cards. I also printed out a small ice cream image which came from Deedee’s Digis DOM for July set. I coloured all the images in with Copics then trimmed the large image and sentiment to the size I wanted before matting onto black card. I also fussy cut the single ice cream cone. Using the white card I made an easel card blank and covered the front and the inside with the stripy card, having first run a black pen along the edges. I stuck the matted image to the top of the card and used the sentiment and ice cream cone inside the card as stoppers.


With the smaller images, having coloured them I trimmed them down to ATC size and ran a black pen around the edges.

It has been a lovely hot and sunny day in Somerset today, so much so that I think an ice cream is called for right now!

Thanks for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
