I was so excited to be able to play with one of the new sets for this release called Scoops! It's all about ice cream and other chillin' out treats that are always so wonderful in the summertime! Links to all of the CDD products I've used here are at the end of my post.
I used Scoops along with this Cool Cat Digital Stamp! It was the perfect pairing! I just love that sentiment! I cut out one of the banners from the Flag Banner Dies, cut it in half and stamped the sentiment. And LOVE those Doodlebug Sprinkles.. they were just the right green... there are varying shades in each pack so I can always find a match!
Of course I used my CDD Outdoor Landscape Dies for the waves and sand (cut from watercolored paper) and my Sky's The Limit Dies for the sun. And let's not forget the Picture Frame die that tries to contain my scene (let's give it an A for effort) and I used Fancy Frames to cut out the center window.
The accessories I used from the Scoops set aside from the sentiment are that cute umbrella that's shading my Cool Cat.. so he's even cooler... the little Kawaii face on my his coconut drink (there's a few of them on this set and they are adorable... you can add cute little faces to so many things!), and the pitcher full of coolness as well as the little ice cubes. There are SO many stamps on this set that you can use on SO many projects!
Notice since the pitcher was clear, I figured you'd be able to see the tree through it so I added some extra lines and colors for the tree and the sand and water... I'm pretty happy with how that turned out.. and I LOVE those little ice cubes!!
I decided to add a little more dimension to my tree (I printed the image twice in case I made a mistake and then decided to color in a few extra tree leaves and add them to what was there). I like to have extra pieces so I can easily cover up or fix any mistakes in my coloring or if I smudge some black ink where it doesn't belong. This is a regular occurrence in my craft room so I try to be ready and usually print at least two of my digital image...lol! But the extras also make for a great way to add layers and dimension. And if I end up not needing them, I save them for a future project!
And since I was adding dimension to the tree I decided to add some to the umbrella and stamped an extra of that too. Love the way it turned out!
