Sweet Scoops Celebration

When I first saw the new Summer Mini catalogue I knew I had to have the sweet scoops stamp set! It's just too cute and so versatile! There were a few things I did to make this card just right!

To line up the ice cream cones and have them spaced well, I drew a faint straight line in pencil and made a small mark at the center of the card and 1.5" to either side. I then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the top of the cones with the three marks. Once they were all stamped and the ink dry I erased the line! This way there is no guess work at where to put them and they look great!

To give the ice cream some dimension, I covered them with crystal effects and sprinkled some dazzling diamond glitter in it before it dried! I love the shine it gives and how the sparkle brings out the sparkle on the designer paper!
