What’s the Scoop? – [Hero Arts Summer 2016 Release] Blog Hop & Giveaway.

Hey there & welcome to the Hero Arts BlogHop to celebrate the launch of the Summer 2016 Catalogue!! You are probably coming from Julie’s blog and I hope you’ve already had lots of fun hopping! I’m really really excited to be a part of this bloghop and that I got to create with some of the great new products before they hit the stores 🙂

Hero Arts Summer 2016

But enough from me 😉 For my blog hop project I used my favourite stamp set of the new release (the Color Layering Ice Cream set) – or maybe actually of all times!! I loved all of the Hero Arts color layering stamps and this one is no exception! When the stamps finally arrived, I immediately had to pull out all of my stamp pads  to play with the stamps and try all the colour combinations 😀

(I will share more projects with some of the other new products soon, so be sure to check back again)

What I especially love about this set is that there is a coordinating die! Cutting out all of those scoops by hand would be a quite time consuming (and probably not as neat), so it’s great to have the die to do that for you! I also used the Sweet Sprinkles Bold Prints cling stamp together with the pretty sparkle embossing powder to create a background. For two of the cards I also used the Sprinkles stencil with different pastel ink pads. I’m absolutely in love with all of the pastel ink pads and now I finally have a really good use for them – they are just perfect for ice cream! 🙂

Unfortunately you can’t really see it in the photos (they really don’t do the colours justice) but the background with the cling stamp and the sparkle embossing powder is perfection because it has some kind of frosted ice look!

Besides some phrases, there are two different types of ice cream in this stamp set (normal scoops and soft ice) and you can even decorate your ice cream with sprinkles, chocolate chips and a cherry! I mean, how cute is that?!
