Summer, officially at least, is right around the corner though here in the Philadelphia area, we've already had our first heat wave of the season, with temperatures skyrocketing into the 90's for four consecutive days. School is out soon, and a favorite activity in our neighborhoods is the arrival of the ice cream truck. Does your ice cream truck play that incessant, irritating song too?
To celebrate the happiness of ice cream and summer, Close To My Heart's June Stamp of the Month features a vintage ice cream truck and ice cream cones. Isn't it just fun? You can get your SOTM for only $5 with a qualifying $50 purchase on my CTMH website, www.cardmonkey.ctmh.com. Here are two of the cards I recently made using this cute stamp set:
This card (above) features the funfetti of CTMH's "Confetti Wishes" paper pack and embellishments. The panel that I stamped and then colored with ShinHan Touch Twin markers was die cut using Dual Stitched Rectangle Dies from Lil' Inker Designs.
My ice cream cone banner on this card combines CTMH's "You're Da Bomb" Operation Smile stamp set with its "Totally Irresistible" sentiment with five delish ice cream cones,twine and brads.
