Ice Cream Parlour - Summer Fun Blog Hop

Hello. 

Woo-hoo..it's a Blog Hop event at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  The theme is...Summer Fun!  Complete details of the blog hop can be found at the Challenge Blog.

If you're already doing the Blog Hop and have arrived here from Katie's blog then you are on the right track. If not, then you may want to start at the beginning. Here is the blog hop order:
Norma (you are here)
Suzanne
Cabio
Sheri
Eulanda

Just a mention here that if you leave comments along the way (in Blog-Hop participants' blogs including the Challenge Blog itself) they will be entered into a draw for a Surprise Package Prize from Magnolia-licious. 

Okay, moving on...here is my Summer Fun project...


I spent more time on this project than I had planned to--I got a bit too ambitious...LOL.  But it was fun just the same.
This was like constructing a mini doll house.  I didn't have plans/templates for any of the ice-cream-parlour items.  I googled 'ice cream parlour' on the internet and looked at the images and then made things up as I go along.  A lot of trials and errors and discarded items...LOL.  Except for the glass cover of the ice cream cooler--I used acetate sheet--everything is made of paper:  chipboard, cardstocks, designer papers, lollipop sticks.

The colouring of the images was done with my alcohol ink markers--Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.

Here's a list of the Magnolia images I've used:


- Tilda with Ice Cream from the Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009
- Tilda with Love Potion (altered) from the With Love Collection 2013
- Tilda with Prince Froggy (altered) from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
 
Maggie, you can't come in here!  Shoo, shoo...

- Tilda with Big Cup of Ice Cream from the With Love Collection 2013
- Mini Magnolia with Butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011 (Magnolia is the name of the little dog--I left out the butterfly) 


- Strawberry Ice Cream from the Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009
The 'Ice Cream Parlour' sign was computer generated.

Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious, carries a large selection of both the full size and mini stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you. 
Prices are discounted.  Along with excellent customer service, you get to earn 2% in-store credit of every order, to be applied to future purchases.  How cool is that!
 
Challenges for this project:
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenges - LRSBC57 Summer Theme
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Something Sweet
A Little Bit Crafty - Something Sweet
Deep Ocean Challenge #54 - Welcome Summer
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #176 - Animals
I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #173 - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Hot Hot Hot (makes me think of ice cream to cool you down)
Totally Tilda Challenge #74 - Going for a Song ('Ice Cream' by Sarah McLachlan)
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - Fun in the Sun
The Paper Shelter Challenge #117 - Anything but a card

That's all for me! Your next stop in this blog hop is the super-talented Ruby's blog.  I know she has a fabulous project for your eyes to feast on--that gal always does.  I've got dibbs on whatever she made...LOL.  Enjoy your day!

 
Materials and Tools Used:
Font used for the signRio Grande, free download from Dafont.com
