Royal Blog Tour: Sweet Scoops (of Ice Cream)!

(UPDATE May 4: Scroll down for Blog Candy Winner!)
Welcome to my UTAH Ice Cream Castle along the Royal Blog Tour featuring the SWEET SCOOPS stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog!

Confession: I have an incurable sweet tooth, and when it comes to stamps of food…I’m totally addicted! On the last blog tour, I used cupcakes, so it only follows that you need ICE CREAM with your cake, right? Did you know the average U.S. citizen consumes an average of 5 1/2 gallons of ice cream each year?ย 
ย The petite size of these “cones” make perfect gift tags. More trivia: More ice cream is sold on Sunday (Sundae?) than any other day of the week!
Is your mouth watering yet? I call this card Double Dippin’ (kudos to fellow princess Tami F. for the card pattern!) The sentiment is from the stamp set A Little Birthday Cheer and I’m so happy that Baja Breeze is one of the colors returning to Stampin’ Up!’s new color palette in July ๐Ÿ™‚
This next card is called Cherry Topper ~ have you ever had a dipped cone? Scrumptious! But at one time, it was illegal to serve ice cream on top of cherry pie in Kansas…
To make a “shiny” ice cream cone (like the Cherry Topper), just add Crystal Effects over your stamped image (Dazzling Diamonds glitter, optional).
Here’s the scoop: 25% of Baskin Robbins’ ice cream sales are Vanilla! This card covers the other 30 flavors (sentiments also from A Little Birthday Cheer):

So, dear traveler, if you are refreshed by your stop here and would like to enter to win my BLOG CANDY (yum…another food related metaphor!), please subscribe to my blog and/or newsletter in right column (U.S. non-SU! demonstrators only, please) and you could win the Lots of Thoughts stamp set and Tag Punch (shown below with one more Sweet Scoops sample)! That’s better than a hot fudge and caramel sundae, and with much fewer calories ๐Ÿ™‚

If you enjoyed your visit, please leave me a comment! Don’t forget to collect clues along the Royal Path to enter the BIG SHOT drawing at the Royal Blog Tour homepage, and if you are ever in Utah, let’s go out for ice cream!

Royal Blog Tour

Welcome to Utah, blog travelers! I am delighted to introduce you to the new Stampin’ Up! set On a Pedestal! The 2009-10 In-Color palette seemed to compliment the “party” feeling, so I used Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry for these cards:

For this pull-up card, I added a sentiment from the Chit Chat rub-ons…isn’t it cute? Below is the surprise you find when you pull it up ๐Ÿ™‚As another SWEET treat for stopping by, leave a comment along with your e-mail address and you can be entered to win my BLOG CANDY: the Spring Solitude stamp set and co-ordinating Solitude wheel (retired but brand new). I appreciate comments from everyone, but the drawing will be open to non-SU demos only and only to U.S. visitors but if you are a sister demonstrator or from another country feel free to comment anyway and indicate SU Demo/or country!

Happy stamping and visit anytime you need a shot of creative juice!
