FCCB #280 - National Ice Cream Day/Month

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

Challenge #280 National Ice Cream Day/Month

This Weeks Sponsor is:

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of Penny Light (our newest Design Team member)!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project I'm using the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge to make two sweet ice cream treat cards! Both the tags and ice creams cones come from this cartridge, and I used sentiments from the Just Chill stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps for my tags. 

I used paper from a Recollections 6x6 resist paper pad, which I watercoloured using Distress Inks. 

Then, I used Distress Stains in matching colours to colour my seam binding ribbon. I love using this method to colour ribbon - and when you spritz it with water I love how the colours blend!

Finally, I added some Wink of Stella and Stickles to add some shimmer and glitter to the strawberry and sprinkles. 

Here's a look at this sweet stamp set I used!
