Sometimes stamps just talk to me. Like putting together an ice cream freezer with the brand new Treat Yourself set by Lawn Fawn! It’s been crazy hot here lately – I know 80s doesn’t seem like much to most of you outside the Pacific Northwest, but we never get weather like this in May and early June, so it’s totally ice cream weather here!
This also isn’t the traditional Magical Monday video….usually they aren’t voiced over at all. But since this one had some intricate die work and MISTI stamping, I figured I’d chat through those bits at least. I also mixed in some stamps from some of the other sets in the new release – smileyface on the ice cream is from Sweet Smiles and the freezer meats are from Let’s BBQ!

If you want to color a much easier version of this card, you could just make a white-on-white freezer. Just stop the coloring after the spraying with the mister.
I know the ice cream does look a little oversized for this freezer. But since the person getting it REALLY deserves to treat themselves, why not a 10 gallon bucket? *grin*
The treat on the inside is definitely a little treat, too – we often forget about the inside of cards, but this one has a spoon ready to dish up a yummy bite!
One other tip – lots of folks haven’t tried Neenah because of the cost of a ream…did you know it’s available in a 25pack? So you can try it out without goin’ broke. You’re welcome, friends!

I hope you enjoyed my crazy little ice cream freezer today….OH! I hear the ice cream truck! Gotta run! 🙂
You are so creative. I love this one. I love ice cream.
Oh my goodness Sandy! You’ve outdone yourself with this amazing card! I hope you keep hearing voices! LOL
Oops, I hit enter before I completed my name…..sorry! But THANKS again!
What an cute card Sandy! What a great way to use the die cut!! I also wanted to thank you so much for the Hex chart you made! I have mine colored now and have used it over the past couple of days, and must say it is WONDERFUL!!!! I have been using Copics for about 2 years now but always seemed to struggle a bit with which colors to use. I would use the original Copic chart and pick 3 or 4 colors for my shading, but never seemed to be able to pick the right colors to get the “right” shades. This has made is so easy! I have colored using the chart the last couple of days and have been amazed how easy it is now to make the right color adjustments!!! I can’t thank you enough for the time you took to create this! You made my day, week, month, year!!! Thank you!
Great card!! Yes, ice cream should be bigger than everything else in the freezer. Amazing steaks, btw. Just wanted to throw that on the grill, while eating the ice cream. Life is short, eat dessert first. Right? I think I read that somewhere. ^_^
Silly, 10gals of ice cream is just about right. Who needs to put FOOD in that freezer anyway. Great card. You just keep on listening to those stamps…
Super CUTE card Sandy!
You crack me up! Ten gallons of ice cream sounds fine to me…lol. Love that kitchen you created and that freezer holds ten gallons of ice cream just right. Cute design…great card!! Love it. TFS
Love the card!
This card is too cute! What a creative mind you have! Hot here too, over the mountain in Spokane. 94 here today!!! Pass the spoon! Love this card! Keep cool.
Sandy, you’ve done it again. This is so adorable and c-l-e-v-e-r !!!!!!!!!!! I love it
Every day should be ice cream day. Just saying. I love Lawn Fawn and love your unique take on these sets!
TOO CUTE! I love them.
So cool. A little interactive card and who doesn’t like ice cream?
