Welcome back for Day 2 of The Craft's Meow July Release Sneaky Peeks!!!
I'm super duper excited about today's sneak peeks as I get to share two more fabulous sets with you, one of which designed by myself!
First up is a super sweet set by Mabelle Ramirez-Ortiz called 'Sweet Taste of Summer'. As soon as I saw the large cute image of a gal having a picnic, I knew I wanted to fussy cut elements from it to create my own li'l scene:
This is a diddy 3x3 card. I couldn't resist the cute birdie and loved the idea of him perched on the picnic basket (hopefully there's no worms in there for him to eat though!) I'm also going to enter this into the Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Challenge - Hello Category.
Edited to add: Now I can show you the large stamp this scene was created from as the set is available for purchase!
Our next set is called 'One Scoop or Two?' and is designed by me! (I still have to pinch myself to say that y'know!) This set captures what summer means to me: ice-cream! Hee!
Edited to add: I can now show you the whole set - yay! :D
One Scoop or Two? allows you to custom design your ice-creams to your heart's content - as many scoops as you can handle! Want a cherry on top? Sprinkles? Sauce? A chocolate flake? You can have it! You may even want to add a smiley face!
For my project I went for a classic Neopolitan combo of scoops with a glossy cherry on top:
To explain how the set works I've come up with a kinda step-by-step tutorial.
The first thing you want to do when you get this set it to create a mask of the scoop. This will make using the set fabulous for one-layered stamping should you not be in the mood to fussy cut. I simply stamped the outline scoop on a sticky post-it and cut it out (and I now keep it stuck inside my set for future inky sessions!)
You'll notice the set comes with the image of an outline scoop with the top missing. No, that's not a fault with the set, it's a masking scoop! This baby allows you to stack as many scoops as you desire!
Seeing as I want 3 scoops to my ice-cream, I simply line up the same stamp and place on top of my first scoop.
For my final scoop I use the full-outline image of a scoop.
Now for the cone - afterall - how are you going to hold that tower of ice-creamy goodness? :)
For the cone you need to place the mask you created earier on top of the bottom cone.
Next, pick your cone (there's a choice with this set!) and stamp, allowing the top of the cone to stamp over the bottom scoop with the mask on.
To finish, remove the mask!
