**Create It 3-Ways Instagram Hop -- Summer*

It's time for the Create it 3-Ways Instagram Hop!  Each month, a group of us create three cards using a set theme... and those three cards have to have at least one thing in common with each other... a product used, colours, papers, tools, techinque, layout...  but something in common between all three of our cards.

For June, our theme is "summer" and I chose to play with an ice cream cone die I have.

For my first card I went with some bright and fun colours and a mix of fonts.  I created my colours by swiping inks on to white cardstock.

Card Info

*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake

*Ink:  Catherine Pooler Mandarin Spiace, Party Dress, Mardi Gras; Versafine Clair Nocturne
*Dies:  Poppy Stamps Whittle Ice Cream Cone; MFT Impact Alphabet
*Tools:  Perfect Layers

For my second card I cut a rainbow of ice cream scoops to put on the front of my card.

For my third card I wanted to go clean and simple.  I did some ink blending on a piece of white cardstock and cut my scoops out of that... and I happened to have a scrap of pattern paper that came awfully close to matching.

  4. The only thing better than one ice cream themed card is three - and the trio you've created are absolutely delightful. Ice cream for the win when it comes to celebration. The row of cones shared in the Just Us Girls gallery is fabulous; sweet tooth tingling. Thank you for joining us!
