Hi, it’s Therese here and it’s time for another Stamp Focus!  I have a wonderful set called Summer Swirls Stamp Set and the coordinating die set. I have three projects to share, so let’s get straight into it!

My first project uses the ‘no-line’ colouring technique.  I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I popped the images up on the front of a topfold card and stamped an Espresso Crisp Ink sentiment with the Invisible Alpha Stamp Set and Thinking of You Stamp Set.

Another icecream design this time and it’s a watercolour background using the images embossed with the Pure White embossing powder.

For my final card I stamped and coloured the ice cream van, I explain how I used the partial die cutting technique in the video below.

The background was stamped with A Splash of Color Stamp Set using Pink Diamond, Sea Breeze and Citrus Burst.  Then I added a sentiment from Birthday Greetings Stamp Set.
