SSS August Card Kit: Summer Dreams


Have you seen the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for August?  If this isn't summer, I don't know what is!  My grandkids arrived at just about the same time as my kit, so I'm just now getting around to playing with it.  And being the ice cream addict that I am, I decided to use only the ice cream cone along with one of the sentiments and a heart from the adorable stamp set.  I also used the solid Simon cardstock in the kit, adding only my own Audrey Blue for the party hat on the center oval, and some kraft for the cones in the background.

After paper-piecing all my ice cream cones, I glued most of them to my white card base, stamped some hearts in matching colors, and then embosed the whole front in dots.  There are 2 tiny smiley faces in the stamp set, so I used one of them on my center cone.  

They've thought of everything for this set!  Do you see the 2 Distress markers?  Here might be a good place to try them out, if you haven't already......

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll see you tomorrow for a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
