I am offering this special because the end of the fiscal year at Stampin’ Up is June 30th and I am trying to reach a personal milestone. I always have goals and dreams during the year and although I hit two major goals for myself this year, I am hoping to hit another before the end of June because July 1st, it starts all over again.  To get Free Shipping, just email your order to me (or call instead #262-374-0219) and I will apply the free shipping.

Ice Cream, Ice Cream!

I will admit, I hear someone yell “Ice Cream”, and I immediately hear-Eddie Murphy Scream it in my head. Always!!! (Thanks Eddie!!!!)

Do you remember that Ice Cream bit? Loved listening to his early comedic days right out of Saturday Night Live. But, I digress, back to Ice Cream.

This New stamp set Sprinkles of Life will have you making Ice Cream Cones, dip upon dip, card after card. But there is sooo much more than that in this set. Think Project Life ideas too. But an ice cream themed card-it tops my list of the first thing I made with it.

I made this fun Mini Treat Bag for my Open House to show the versatility of the punch that coordinates with this set.

Mini Treat Bag-with Ice Cream cone

Layers of paper for Ice Cream

Oh, you just have to have the punch. It makes a great tree, and of course the ice cream can be a cloud.

Here are just a few things you can do with this set.

Dots and Ice Cream card


and since I am Always thinking of Autumn ideas all year long-

Good Things


Just like the statement says-good things ARE GOING TO HAPPEN. I don’t know about you but I believe THAT to be the truth. I love this new stamp set. It’s one of those that has great sayings and a really Nifty flower.


I embossed this flower in Gold on Shimmery White paper and water colored with the Watermelon Wonder ink pad. I loved how it turned out. Then I cut out the flower, added the new Mint Macaron dotted lace trim and made a quick tie.

The good things card.

Simple but elegant. Here are the supplies I used:
