Welcome to the Welcome to the Just Add Sweets Blog Hop with myStamp BOX today!

Here is our Just Add Sweets Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone: -
Ellen Sosnoski ----> you are here! ;)

The design team's challenge was to take the theme of our blog hop and apply the colours of white, pink and orange to their creations. For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win a set of brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then return to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win! Have fun! Please hop along to the next designer........ Kim to check out her sweet work!



I absolutely love hot chocolate and coffee and ANYTHING warm during this cold, cold weather we have here in Northeast PA so I wanted to create a sweet treat around different ways I can carry my hot cocoa to and from work and running around. You and find these alterable mugs at your local craft store and use your paper from your stash and OF COURSE, your mSB stamps! and you know how I love to alter these coffee coozies, LOL! They are THE perfect gift and they are FREE! I know my scrubster will love carrying his coffee around in this on Valentines Day ;)

I used the Symbols set {these are so cute and fun!} and Colorful Companions and Straightforward Sets {see bottom of post for those images}




to stamp these butterflies, just mix some paint and modgepodge, cover your stamp lightly with the mixture, stamp and then add glitter!



here is a close up of another butterfly I made. My super talented scrapbooking guru whom I am always inspired by, Susan Stringfellow, had this challenge to mix paint and modgepodge so I gave it a whirl...




Here are the images of the stamp sets I used
