S&S Ice Cream

"Food, Glorious, Food!!"  That is our challenge theme at Little Miss Muffet Stamps for the next fortnight (2 weeks).  At first I was baffled at what image I should use but then soon realized there are LOTS of stamps with food in them!!  I was able to choose anything from lemonade, cupcakes, ice cream, bubblegum, lollipops, apples, carrots, eggs, hotdogs, cooking batter, marshmallows and the list goes on and on... no trouble picking anymore!  Plus with the recent Tea Party Release the options have multiplied exponentially and the combinations are endless... I could have added cookies, sandwiches, crackers, tarts and many other things. Ok, ok... so what did I pick?   Ice Cream!!

The image on this project is Swings 'n Slides Ice Cream from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was drawn by Pollycraft.  I thought she was perfect for the warm spring months that I'm experiencing and ice cream is my favorite.  :D

I tried to make the card look inviting and summerie without it looking hot and miserable!  LOL  To do this I stayed away from the warm colors (yellow, orange, red) as much as possible.  However, I always enjoy using complimentary colors so that's why I used a little orange and pink.

Thanks for coming by today and be sure to head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and check out all the other fabulous creations!


  1. So many food images. So little time! Almost if I planned it! I love this card, fab layout, lovely clean style, and the scene is cute. English spring rather than Texan summer. Off to get an ice cream. 8.42am is not too early for ice cream, right?! X

  2. Such a darling image and design, Barbara! Love your always fabulous coloring, love the fun little scene you created with your die cuts & paper, love the faux stitching and the embellies, too! :^)
