Baby it’s hot out there…….

It’s a refreshing 41 degrees outside and about 51 in my craft room. I was really motivated to make lots of cards for today’s blog hop but can not bear to be in there. Luckily I have just come back from a four day scrapbooking retreat and used lots of Stampin Up products on my pages!

The theme for today’s blog hop is something sweet and I think the very versatile Cool Treats stamp set perfectly fits the bill.
 I was scrapping photos from my most recent trip to the USA and had some photos of a very healthy breakfast I wanted in the album……

This set incorporates two stamp stamping. This means you stamp a lighter colour and then stamp over it in a darker colour to add accents. I started by stamping my cups and ice cream.


The base of my ice cream was So Saffron so next step was to stamp the ice cream accents in a darker colour. I used Sahara Sand.


I was using a Project Life page protector from Stampin’ Up and I still had an extra space to fill and decided to do something I rally do anymore and use my own hand writing. I wrote it in pencil first and then used a Stampin’ Write marker to add the writing and accent it with dots.


Of course I rubbed out the pencil lines once I was done! The finished page……


I promise once it cools down to make some cards with this set.

Don’t forget my open house this Sunday 15th January. Just pop in anytime between 12:30 and 4:30.
