I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Another favorite from the Summer Mini Catalog - Sweet Scoops....this set is just plain ADORABLE!  This is AGAIN - a fabulous card that I received in a swap...


It's actually a 2-Step stamp set - the zebra striped stamp shown below is super fun.  You ink up your ice cream and then stamp the inked up stamp with an uninked zebra pattern and it makes the ice cream look like real rippled ICE CREAM!!!  You can also use a different color of ink on the zebra striped stamp for a fun combination.....

Elements of Style


I just can't remember if I shared this card with you yet or not....I did a little searching and couldn't find where I did...can't remember anything here's my Cruise swap card from last month.  It also qualifies for the ED (Easy & Demonstratable) Late Nite Stampers Challenge this week!!!  All you need to do is use Brads or Eyelets on your card....and there's a Rhinestone Brad on the "Life is a Matter of Moments"


I am in LOVE with this stamp set - Elements of Style.  It's in the new SUMMER MINI CATALOG and it's ALL THE RAGE!!!  The black is the Groom Designer paper - I thought it really added alot of pizzaz to this one!
