Let’s get started!!
Begin working on the layout, by stamping images and die cutting out. The cones and the tall popsicle are layering stamps, so using a stamp positioner like a Misti makes it easier to line up, but you do not have to use one.
Glitz Glitter Gel
If you want to use the Glitter Glitz Gel like I did, stamp your ice cream scoops in various colors first. After stamping them, you can either layer the Glitter Gel on the inked image or create a totally separate piece to die cut and place on top like I did. If you layer the gel on top of the ice cream scoop, you will have to hand cut the image.
In addition, you can mix the gel colors for some fun swirls for your ice cream cones as I did above. (I really want a snow-cone right now!). These will take about 1/2 hour to an hour to dry.
As you can see above, I used separate colors of the gel on the popsicle. I will give you a tip, don’t stamp too closely together, or it will be a little tricky to use the stencil! For these I had to hold the stencil, bending it a little so it wouldn’t touch the other popsicle! Next, you will die cut out your images. Look at all that fun!!!
As you can see below, these look fun lined up on a layout.
Electro-Pop Neon Flock Sheets
In addition to the ice cream cones, you will create the three flocked strips on the left-hand side of the layout. These strips were all created in the same manner, they are just cut at different widths. These strips use the new Electro Pop Neon Flock Sheets.
Begin this process by attaching a sheet of the Deco Foil Foam Adhesive to a piece of cardstock. I used an entire 6×12 inch sheet because I wanted the strip to go the entire length of my layout. Once you have your foam adhesive attached to your cardstock, cut your three strips of varying widths.
Once you have your strips cut, carefully peel back the protective covering on the foam adhesive to just a little past the length of your flock sheet (which is 6×6 for a sheet). To begin the process to transfer your flock, place your flock sheet face down on the exposed foam adhesive and press it really well to the adhesive. Before putting through my manual die cutting machine, I laid the protective covering for the foam adhesive back over the backside of the flock. I don’t know that you have to, I just did!
In order to transfer the flock, run the flock with the foam attached through your die cutting machine and carefully peel the flocked sheet away from the foam. Subsequently, you will repeat the process for the remaining part of the strip. Once you have completed this step, you will have a full 12 inch flocked piece and you cannot tell where the seam is for the two sections.
In detail, you can see the strips above do not show the seams! Besides, using flock gives such a fun texture to your projects and the sheets make it so easy to incorporate without a mess!
To finish up your project, cut layers of varying sizes for your picture focal point. Leave room below your picture to line up your ice cream cones! And you are done!!
So in conclusion, I am just going to drop this picture of the other ice cream cones and thank you for stopping by the blog today!
