They are good for any type of occasion but excellent for witty quotes or punny sentiments and this one is a classic!!
I started by stamping out the various shapes of lollies from Sugar Pea's Summer Scoops stamp set using different inks. I used selective inking and masking to get the shading and multi-colour effects. Dies are available but I stamped them out with lolly sticks in place so I just used scissors for the simple shapes.
The alphabet that comes with the letter message board is all joined as one die which actually makes life a lot easier!! I just keep it handy on my desk and run it through with any scraps of white card leftover from projects and put all the letters in a small box ready for another time. For this design I wanted to highlight the word ICE so I used Lawn Fawns Finley's ABC's which is unfortunately out of stock at the moment but will be here in a couple of weeks with Lawn Fawn re-stocks..... but any large simple font would work instead.
I love the striking look of the colours against the black backdrop. I think I will have a lot of fun with this die set 😉
Thanks for stopping by :)
