Ice Cream Dream S1506: CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. I am the start of this blog hop, or you may have arrived here from Anne's blog, Mummy You Made This?- either way you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you this card, which features the June Stamp of the Month Ice Cream Dream, available exclusively throughout June for $33 or for just $5 when you spend $75.

I am trying out the ever popular Masking Tape technique, which I feel gives a fun background to my card.

I started off my placing a piece of masking tape over my ink pad.

I then placed the inked strip of masking tape on a piece of cardstock and pressed it down.

I did the same with two more ink colours, rubbing them down well.

When I pulled the strips of masking tape off, I was left with this fun striped accent.

I then stamped the ice cream over the strips of ink, and added a sentiment from the stamp set as well. These three colours definitely remind me of summer and ice cream!

I added some Flamingo Dots and matted on cardstock to complete the card. Simple but fun!

Ice Cream Dream is only available until 31st June from your CTMH consultant. I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop,  Shaunna Richards' blog, Passionate About Pages.
