I Love You More Than Ice Cream. That's a Lot.

This may be the best sentiment of all time. It certainly is the most well suited sentiment for ME, that's for sure! For Reals, you guys. I would eat ice cream for every meal if I didn't feel like that might not be so good for me. It's my favorite thing in the world. I can pass on cheesecake, chocolate, etc.... but when ice cream is involved, well.... GIMME!

HA!



SO.... that being said, when my Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit arrived I nearly FLIPPED! I am SO in love with this kit! The stamps are BRILLIANT! The papers are super fun and, I confess, these are the very first distress markers to ever grace my studio and I am officially in LOVE with them!!!

More than Ice Cream


The kit also came with a sheet of Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I usually use Strathmore, so I enjoyed trying this paper out. It has a smooth side that offers a different look from a traditional, textured watercolor piece. I stamped my ice cream cone, masking and restamping to create the STACK o' ice cream and then added a bit of color with the distress markers. I then used a waterbrush to move the color and create a watercolor look. I LOVE it! The tab and heart are die cuts that came in the kit. Each kit comes with different ones, so yours will be a surprise!

For the cherry, I added a touch of Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer and then coated it with Glossy Accents. Cherries simply MUST be shiny. I'm quite sure of it.

You can purchase the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit individually OR you can subscribe to have it arrive monthly. It's super flexible and I absolutely LOVE my kits! And the price can't be beat! Be sure to check them out!

Have a Happy!
