Popsicle Cards

This is my face when it is hot in Arizona and there are no cold popsicles in the freezer. Bawahaha!

I mean, you must roll that paint across your gel plate quickly or the dry heat will desiccate your printing plans.

I was speedy!

These are the StencilGirl® stencils I used….

… to create this pile of never-melting Popsicle fun!

You can get Popsicle “forever stamps” at the US Post Office for a limited time! They are even scented.  (I think they smell like Jolly Rancher Watermelon Candy.) When I saw them, I knew I had to make cards!

I made gelli printed papers – some stenciled, some not, hand cut the Popsicles and sticks, and then used Inktense pencils, Sharpie Pens, a white pen, Prima Watercolors, and washi tape to embellish.

I confess that I ordered washi tape especially to match the postage stamps; I am getting ahead of myself.

Making cards was FUN! FUN! FUN! I stopped counting at a dozen.

Are you old enough to remember sharing the other half of your orange creamsicle with a friend? I guess you can still buy “twin pops” but I do not think they are made by Popsicle.

I made my “Anything is Popsicle” card first. The “half for me and half for you” creamsicle actually pulls out.

Then I thought, who wants a creamsicle when you can have a margarita?

It is no secret that I love the Loose Women stencils.

I flipped the stencil so her hand was pointing up to hold the creamsicle.

Before painting with water:

Many people like to make their own cold fruit pops! Yum!

Those stamps are too much! Watermelon and strawberry and lime, oh my! Looks like one is even dipped in chocolate.

Did you call those red white and blue Popsicle “bullets” or “bombs”?

I was on a roll! I even cut drips on a few.

Of course, I had to get snarky.

The line about the stick I read somewhere. The response, well, I had to have the last word 🙂

As long as I made one ice cream cone, I went ahead and made more.

Sure bet…

Get it?

Hey, I work from home. I must amuse myself  🙂

A different line could be: Our friendship is a sure bet.

Wishing you a cool rest of the summer chillin’ with your friends!

P.S. The stencils I used:

4 Flowers, Loose Woman 1 & 2, Sea of Grapes, Twist Lattice, Night Sky  Night Sky is not pictured –  it fell into the black hole in my desk!

Stencil Club: June 2018, Nov, Aug, and Mar 2017, Nov and Apr 2016, and Dec 2013  – also sucked into the black hole, but both stencils will somehow appear in the middle of my desk in the next 24 hours…
