SSINK Cool Treats For the Kids

What kid doesn’t like ice cream? Actually, what adult doesn’t love it, too?!!  At my Open House for the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog recently, I had an Ice Cream Sundae Bar. I made my own Hot Fudge for the event! Yummers!!!
I’ll leave you with the recipe at the end of the post.

The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is focusing on KIDS today! So I made an Ice Cream Card:

I just love these colors!  This time I chose the colors from the Designer Series Paper:  Naturally Eclectic DSP.  Emerald Envy, Whisper White, Soft Sky.

Here’s the details:

  • Stamps:  Cool Treats
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Lemon Lime Twist
  • Paper:  Emerald Envy (5 1/2 X 11, score at 4 1/4), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4), Soft Sky (5 X 3 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Wink of Stella (see sparkles below!)

Cheryl’s Hot Fudge Sauce

4 oz. unsweetened chocolate

1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 cup whipping cream

1 tsp. vanilla

Melt chocolate in double  boiler.  Add butter, cocoa, & sugar.  Cook 10 minutes.  Whisk in cream & cook 5 minutes longer, stirring constantly.  Slowly add vanilla.

Best served while admiring a beautiful card you just finished up!  Enjoy!

SSINK Telescoping Cool Treats

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team is featuring “Unusual Shaped Cards”.  I’ve made a Telescoping Birthday Card!

Isn’t that fun?!  I just love the whole Cool Treats Suite!  There’s a cute stamp set, Designer Series Paper, Framelits Dies, Sprinkes, & Washi Tape!  Take a close look at this paper:

See the shiny embossed popsicles?  This is what makes it a “Specialty Designer Series Paper”.  When the paper says specialty, the pack includes 2 very special sheets of paper in the pack that are shiny, embossed, & really pretty!  That’s why those Designer Series Papers cost $13 instead of $11.  Now you know!

Just for fun (and some great ideas!) check out what the other SSINK Team members have come up with for Unusual Shaped Cards!
