Hot and spicy, eh? I can give that a go. I'm going with color and theme for hot!
Doesn't get much hotter than the sun, and these colors always bring summer to mind for me. The images are all Imaginisce Snag 'em stamps colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used my new Megabilities dies from Spellbinders for the scalloped layers. I embossed the main layer with the Cuttlebug Perfectly Paisley embossing folder--see my post on creative Cuttling for the how-to's. I accented the embossing with score lines made with my Scor-It. Finally I added some sparkle to the popsicle with a Copic Spica glitter pen and then attached my Primas with a Robin's Nest Dew Drop at the center.
