Bombpops and Icecream

Hello Gazelle Lovers,

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.....and Bomb Pops!! Do you remember Bomb Pops? I remember the wonderful taste of cherry, blue berry and lemon bursting in my mouth!  Oh the gooey stickiness of the goodness dripping down my hands on a hot summer day! Talk about childhood memories; right? Then to top it off, a good ice cream cone...did I put you in the mood for a cool treat yet? I know what I will be serving on the 4th LOL!

For today's project, I wanted to have fun and give the girls some creativity freedom! We played with food!  I used the Ice Cream Cone file for the ice cream. For the cone, I used a score board to add the effect to the cone. I also used puffy paint and a red Viva Decor Pen for the cherry. The Ice Cream Cone file comes with cream and a cherry, but I wanted a little more shine, texture and dimension.

The Bomb Pop was made using basic shapes found in the software. I cut each color separately.  Finally, I added glass effects to the popsicle.  The words were cut using True Type Fonts. I added a shadow to them.

I did some splattering on the background.  I also added some Washi Tape ( thanks Mrs. Bosskut) to the background as well.  Again, this is meant to be fun and you can get the kiddos involved for 4th of July decor perhaps.

That's it! Thank you so much and Happy 4th of July!! Remember to stop by for more projects, files and inspiration! Enjoy your summer, Kenya~
