Ice Cream Float


Mmm....Who doesn't love ice cream when it is hot out? I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find my absolute *favorite* brand of ice cream at our Harris Teeter grocery store down the street from my house! That's right, Ciao Bella! It is a hard-to-find brand, but I noticed that a different HT had a few flavors last week, so I bought the Key Lime Pie flavor. Last night I got Coconut Sorbetto. It was DELICIOUS and just made me think of the beach and vacation!!! Next I will probably try the Blood Orange Sorbetto because that is one of the available flavors, but I am really wanting to get my taste buds on a carton of Pineapple or Cherry with Soft Chocolate Chunk!

The top card was made to replenish my stash of cards to include with each order from the store. It is a 3x3 notecard. It uses the Stampendous Ice Cream Float stamp that is on sale for only $5 this week! Hurry and get yours! It is SO cute! I don't know if you can tell, but I used Glossy Accents on the ice cream glass. Click on the links in the description to see the items in the store.
Stamps: Ice Cream Float (Stampendous), Amazing to Zany (SU). Paper: Very Vanilla. Ink: Palette Noir, Pink Passion. Accessories: Fuschia Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Silver Spica Pen, Liquid Applique, Christmas Red Stickles, Glossy Accents.


This second card is also a 3x3 that features the new Double Scoop stamp that can be bought in Johanna's store. Isn't it too cute? I used an old piece of SU designer paper that looked like a waffle cone! I think this was from Spring Showers, but I'm not sure!! I turned the paper at an angle to get the diamond-shaped design.
Stamps: Double Scoop (justjohanna's OBP). Paper: Kraft, SU DP. Ink: Palette Noir. Accessories: Copic Markers, Liquid Applique, Red Grosgrain Ribbon. OH, MY! THIS CARD HAS NO GLITTER!!! ;)

It is hot here! We are trying to stay cool! Hope you have a cool, ice cream-filled day! :)
