Let the Summer begin! (And a sneak peek!!!)

Welcome to July! This month the Dreamweaver challenge is Summer Fun. I can't wait to see what the other "Dreamers" come up with.

For me,  the timing of this theme is perfect because Summer doesn't begin in Oregon until after the 4th of July!

And for me, summer means Ice Cream! Yes, you heard me right,

I scream,
You scream,
We all scream for ICE CREAM!!!!
And so what better way to kick off my Summer Fun projects than with ICE CREAM!

Dreamweaver LM185 Ice Cream Cones, Original Paste and Metallic F/X

I began my paste embossing the LM183 Ice Cream Cones stencil with original paste, using the sculpted paste technique for the ice cream.When that was dry, I repositioned the stencil and applied Pearlescent Beige to the cones and dabbed the cones with Stewarts Stamp and Stick Glue pad.
After lightly heating the glue with the heat gun, I brushed on Dreamweaver Metallic F/X in Cocoa, Moonstone and Pixie Blue to turn my all vanilla cones into Neopolatin cones!
A fun, simple and ever so lighthearted card that I hope will bring a smile to your face and some ice cream to your lips!
Now hop on over to the other Dreamweaver Design Team blogs and check out their Summer Fun creations.
Happy Summer One and All! Let the fun times begin!
Speaking of fun times, CHA Summer is quickly approaching and Dreamweaver will be releasing some new holiday stencils. You will fall in love with these stencils, I know I did. And to tease you even further, here's a sneak peak of one of them:

If you love this part, you should see the whole stencil! It is gorgeous!!!

BONUS: Participate in this month's Summer Fun Challenge and this is the stencil you can win!

I love the way you pasted the ice cream on top of the cone. You did a wonderful job with the summer fun theme. It kinda makes me crave ice cream right now.......
