June Two Paper Diva's New Release {Day 1}

 I was so excited to see this fun sets for summer with the ice cream from Two Paper Diva's when they flashed them the dt. I don't own any ice cream stamps at all so, it was a totally fun thing to get to play with. All of the ice cream cones and scoops of ice cream in this post have been heat embossed and water colored. and paper pieced into these designs.

 This first card is a gate fold that is 5 1/2" square with each of the front folds was run through the big shot with a cuttlebug border embossing gingham folder ( I thought it kind of mimic the waffle cone texture) and as you scroll through this post you'll probably get the idea that that is my favorite way to eat ice cream is on a waffle cone.  I had to laugh at myself though while I was coloring because, the last year or so I have only bought mint chocolate chip so, I had to really think about what other colors ice cream comes in. ( hubs picks a different flavor for himself every time we buy more so, he goes for the fruity ones and these colors are blueberry cheesecake and strawberry)

 one of the things I did with this was stamp the sentiment (twice using the Misti) onto a quarter sheet of Neenah cardstock and diecut that with a Our daily bread stitched rectangle die and after I decided this would be a triple cone the cone was a little too close to the top edge for balance so, instead of starting all over I grabbed the next sized down die and balanced it with one more cut. This works giving that fourth edge the stitching cut because, it was cut the first time with the larger die.
The colors used on each of these cards are: Ranger tan embossing powder colored with zig clean brush markers oatmeal (cones), Scoops are Zig! blush powder + Zig cleanbrush tea rose marker, SU pool party powder with light blue + pale green Zig clean brush markers, Stampin Stuff lilac powder with Zig clean brush English lavender marker

 This one the cones were stamped repeatedly With Memento sand on the Neenah with the misti by sliding the paper each direction from the center to keep them perfectly lined up.And these were colored with polychromos pencils so they could be flat for the words to be over stamped. 
The oval die was cut out of the front of the card base and the Neenah was mounted from the inside so its a little bit like and embedded window but, still a fairly flat and mail friendly card. This one is also 5 1/2" square in real life.

Now this one is 3 1/2" square in real life as just a little note. I love making cards this size from the scraps they are easy enough to tuck into lunchboxes or coat pockets or you get the idea. When I was a kid we always had orange sherbet at the grandparents house. ( because, we always got ice cream at their house haha) (the sprinkles are Simon says stamp flower sequins) All of these cards were made with the Cool Treats Images And the Here's the scoop sentiments.     
And now for the best news, if you like these sets do not delay checking out the entire release ( it's on sale today and tomorrow along with all the new sets for June, there is not coupon code they are all marked down in the store and you can find them here.) Tomorrow I will be back with some from the other sets and if you forgot this month is when the Summer coffee lovers blog hop happens so, if you have been wanting something fun for those to play along with there are some new sets for that also. Thanks for stopping by :)
