Idaho Custom Creations JulyTiered Tray Kit & New Signs

It is time to reveal the July Tiered Tray kit and this month is ice cream theme!  
Not much screams summer louder than ice cream and I'm here for it.


As a reminder, the kit comes unfinished and with everything you need to complete it, including paint.  It is a monthly subscription through Idaho Custom Creations.  Michelle owns the company, I just paint for her and enjoy all her products!
She offers the subscription kit as well as regular products for sale in her shop, and she takes custom orders. 

I often use my own paint and this month is no exception.  The kit will have pink, mint, brown and white, but I used my own.
I will link my colors here in case you want the exact same.
I also used Marigold and Honey Brown not included in the kit.

I finish the backs and the stands with Folk Art Antiquing Wax.  


These are the pieces included in the kit and close ups are below.







Double sided jar filler ice cream cones.  
Can be painted as 8 single sided or 4 double sided.



Two new Interchangeable Sign choices this month. 
Also available with this link is the starter kit in case you want to get a sign this month.

Layering Wisteria

This is the beautiful new Layering Wisteria Stamps and Dies from Honey Bee Stamps.  This is a multi step stamp and builds the prettiest, dimensional looking flowers and leaves!


The background is ink blended with Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink, spritz with water and blotted with a paper towel.
I die cut a piece of white from the Garden Lattice Cover Plate and cut it to the area I wanted to cover before placing the flowers, stems and leaves.
Thank you sentiment is included in the stamp set.

Shopping Carts Filled With Printed Die Cuts

These cards use the shopping cart dies (both the right and left facing carts) and are flat to the card for easy mailing.  They die is actually a 3D shopping cart, but if you use only the front panel, you can make them flat.
Today I have filled them with the new Birthday Celebrations Printed Die Cuts Pack.


The background papers are from the new Cheerful Occasions Paper Pack.

The Birthday Celebrations Printed Die Cuts are so sweet.  They're all birthday themed for Spellbinders 20th birthday celebration month and include mini library cards, tags, sentiment strips, a couple pieces that have the holes at the top like you've ripped them from a notebook, calendar strips, tickets and so much more.  There are 104 pieces in this pack!

The flowers and green in each cart are from the new die set called Wreath Builder Etched Dies.  These are small and the stems are curved so you can easily build a wreath.  I clipped them and stuck them in the cart for a little more decoration.

Oval Hoops Die Set

I could not wait to get my hands on these new little hoops.  I literally set my alarm!
I've loved working with the hoops from Altenew and The Stamp Market but the cool thing about these is they are oval, little, three of them in the set and they have that all important backing piece! 


I used the largest of the hoops on this card; it is about 2" x 3"- ish.  I stamped and colored the 
floral piece and then centered the hoop backing piece over it and die cut.  I stamped the same floral image all over the back piece in light pink ink.  The sentiment is in the floral set.

The scallop rectangle is from Scallop A2 Card Frames.


You Should Know Stamp Set 
This might be discontinued, I can't find it on her website.

Paint Your Dreams Slimline Card

I'm still loving this Paint Your World Collection, especially this bigger paint brush with the daisies.  
This is a slimline card and I rarely make these, but the paintbrush was the perfect size  for one!


I colored the leaves and flowers with Copic markers and added a few springs in gold cardstock.  The background is the Splatter Embossing Folder and I lightly wiped a white ink pad over the raised dots.  I tied a piece of twine to the handle and added the embossed sentiment.
