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? 
 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 :)
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 :)
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!


MAY 4th~Drum Roll please....and the Blog Candy Winner is:

GALE SEWELL!

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments, joining my newsletter and following my blog!
