I recently acquired the Stamin Up! Sweet Scoops stamp set and I tell ya I love it! I hadn't even seen it until my friend Linda pointed it out to me. I finished up my ink club and since it was my month to be hostess I got this stamp set for free! *okie so loves free!* I went with the clear stamp option, and even though they are not clear stamps they do store nicely in the DVD case and I believe I will be ordering in future stamps in this option.
Stamps - Stampin Up! Sweet Scoops
Inks - Stampin Up!, Cat Eye Chalk Ink
Cardstock - Stampin Up! Bazzil, Prism
Patterned paper - Daisy D's, Basic Grey
Embellishments - Fiskars Zingz
Embossed Rectangle and Scallop Rectangle - Spellbinders Nestibilities
I don't use my Nestibilities very often but I do really like them. I guess sometimes I find them a pain to use because I don't make just one card so I am constantly changing plates, rubber mat, chipboard shims, etc.
The inside sentiment is from a hostess level 3 set that I got from my Stampin Up! party back in February. Both the sentiments are stamped in Brocade Blue.
The Fiskars Zingz added just enough embellishment without making the card too ornate *for some reason okie thinks she has to have some type of embellishment on a card*
Here on the close up of the ice cream cone you can see how it was double stamped. I stamped the cone first and then the ice cream scoop. I did use my Stampin-ma-jig to get it lined up. On a seperate sheet of cardstock I stamped the ice cream scoop again and then stamped with the ridgy *okie has no idea if that is what it is called* stamp. I then cut out the scoop of ice cream and pop dotted it on top of the one stamped on the cone.
I can't wait to play with this stamp set again!
