Hero Arts: Sweet Birthday Wishes




Happy National Ice Cream Day!  Here in the Pacific Northwest we're having another warm summer.  Although this morning is overcast,  today is suppose to get to 71 degrees, perfect in my book.  I think warm weather and ice cream are made for each other, don't you agree?


Any other Matcha Green Tea fans?!  Oh I love that stuff in any form...soft serve ice cream?!  Yes, Please!  I had fun with the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream set!  



The ice cream is made of Green Hills + Lime Green.  The cone is Soft Vanilla + Soft Brown.



I used the Rectangle Infinity Dies on the striped panel.  I used Peerless Watercolors for the stripes.  The sentiment has been stamped with Chalkboard dye ink on a Foliage panel.  It started off as a circle, with the help of the Circle Infinity Dies but I decided it was too tall so I layered a Rectangle Infinity die on top of it and made a more design friendly shape!

My card was inspired by CASology:

  11. Super beautiful card, Amy... makes me want to eat it! Unfortunately, I can't totally agree that "warm weather and ice cream are made for each other". I mean, it's great to have ice cream in warm weather, but for a slow ice cream taster like me, sometimes the melting hits me before I eat it. That's why I don't mind to have it in the winter... also :).
