Lawn Fawn: Inspiration Week!

Hey there again! Lawn Fawn is launching its newest release today: Here's The Scoop! Yes, we are talking Valentine's Day already. Although, really, these are perfect for everyday love notes.

Ice cream story I must share. My father is a huge fan of ice cream. HUGE! When I was growing up, we lived in Rio de Janeiro, and my father tried out every single gelateria in town to find the best gelato shop. He asked them to make us custom gelato. As a matter of fact, my father would sometimes make his own base, haul it to the shop, and they would whip it into frozen perfection. That's dedication. He was making fig gelato before it was fashionable (and a few other awesome flavors). To keep our large inventory, we had a huge freezer just for it. We didn't have ice cream in the normal gallon size. Ours were those tubs you see in ice cream shops. Did I mention me and my siblings were really popular with kids our own age? Yeah. We were.

Back to the stamps and my card!

I used some Echo Park for the background paper. I topped the seam with Lawn Fawn's natural hemp cord. The ice cream cone was stamped and colored with alcohol markers, and trimmed out. Same with the heart. The ice cream scoops were stamped and cut out. Then it was simply stacking them and popping them up on the card. The sentiment is part of the set.

Don't forget to drop by the Lawn Fawn blog to see what the rest of the team created. And for a chance to win a lot of new goodies!
