Something yummy for your tummy!

Yum! Chocolate raisins. I bought a BIG bag of these to use in test tubes, filled this one small test tube... then ate the rest. Oops.

But don’t they look yummy in there, with a matching Chocolate Chip label? The fab swirly stamp could be your Valentine’s Day present to yourself, too – and free if you spend £45! Yes, it’s another Sale-A-Bration stamp set, called Yummy. There are three stamps in the set; this one (obviously), a long stamp which says A Little Something For You (click the Sale-A-Bration label to see samples) and a small stamp with a heart and the words “with love”.

To stamp this image in two colours, I used Stampin’ Write® markers; Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red. I cut out the image with my paper snips (not brilliantly but it’s not my forte) and popped it up on a large tag made from Chocolate Chip textured cardstock. LOVE that textured cardstock! Finally, I mounted it on a larger tag made from smooth Ruby Red cardstock.

I punched a hole with the Crop-A-Dile™ and tied it on with lovely Caramel Gingham Ribbon.
