Sprinkles of Life Pinkies Blog Hop



Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!
If you have arrived here from Lea's blog then welcome.

The Sprinkles of Life stamp set and matching punch I have used today was not on my original wish-list, but like so many other people, when you see a stamp set in use you suddenly NEED to have it yourself.

There are lots of images and sentiments in this set, making it great value at £19.00 and an added benefit is that this stamp set is sold to help raise funds to support the Ronald McDonald House charities.  £2 from every set sold goes to the UK charity to help families of children receiving medical treatment far from home

To make your crafting even quicker - there is a matching punch for 6 different elements.

Here are some samples made with the set, I can't decide which is my favourite.  
Not shown is the basket of flowers from the set.
Quick and easy cone with 3 ice cream layers

Chocolate cupcake ready for the birthday recipient - and NO calories
 
You might just notice that the outline of the tree leaves/ice-cream also doubles as a cloud. In this case I have punched out the cloud shape and very lightly sponged around in Soft Sky ink. I added Crystal Effects to the apples to make them look nice and shiny and good enough to eat.

 Which is your favourite? I'd love to hear your comments
