Jar of Sweets Birthday Card

Today’s card is focusing on the How Sweet It Is DSP and matching Jar of Sweets Framelits. I love that with these Framelits the jars were easy to cut out and then this card came together in a matter of minutes. If you prefer to stamp your own jars of sweets the Framelits match the stamps too so you can pick and mix to your hearts content.

I adhered my jars with Multipurpose liquid glue but you could add extra dimension by using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few strips DSP create the background and the stamped and die cut label adds a greeting.

Tiny Treat Box Sweet Wrap

Surprisingly today I don’t have a card project to share with you, instead I’m sharing a simple way to decorate one of our Clear Tiny Treat boxes. With sixteen in a pack these  little boxes would make the cutest party favours. As their food safe you can fill them with any treats you like, obviously mine has been filled with jelly babies to match the paper.

To create the wrap you will need a piece of DSP measuring 2″ x 11″. Turn the paper so the side you want on the outside in face down on the Simply Scored tool. Score lines at 1″, 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″, 9″ and 10″.

Take the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and punch each end of the DSP. Fold along all score lines and then wrap around your Tiny Treat Box. Thread some Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon through the top of the wrap to secure it to the box. The wrap is secure enough to stay on, but easy enough to slide off when your ready to eat your treats.

To decorate the wrap I added a label stamped from the Sweetest Thing stamp set and die-cut from the Jar of Sweets Framelits and then fastened onto the wrap with the Old Olive Linen Thread.

Hope you like this cute little idea, I’ll be back tomorrow with another card idea for you.

Sweetest Thing Lollipop Card

This week all my projects will focus of the How Sweet It Is Suite of products which are perfect for birthdays, Valentine’s and anytime you want to share something sweet with someone. For today’s project I’ve made a very simple card featuring fussy cut lollipops from the How Sweet It Is DSP.

For a little extra something to add to the card I covered both lollipops in a thin layer of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue, this dries shiny and clear so gives the effect of a sticky lollipop, its very hard to see on the photographs though.

A simple strip of Whisper White helps the greeting to stand out. This card could easily feature any of the jars featured in the stamp set if you didn’t want to fussy cut the lollipops.

Hope you can pop back tomorrow when I have another project with this suite to share with you.

Coastal Cabana Cupcake Card

Today I’m featuring a product made using one of this years Sale-A-Bration stamp sets Hello Cupcake. Sale-A-Bration is one of my favourite times of year as throughout January, February and March for every £45.00 you can choose one item from a selection of exclusive free items. Hello Cupcake is one of my favourites as its main images create these yummy looking cupcakes.

I’ve paired the stamped image with this  Coastal Cabana striped paper from the How Sweet It Is Designer Paper to create and bright and fun card.

To add a little embellishment to the card I’ve added some Powder Pink Iridescent Sequins with the help of the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and my trusty Take You Pick Tool.

I’ve also added some layers using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies which I think are a great addition to our die range and one I can’t wait to use on many more projects soon.

Niece’s Birthday card with Piece of Cake

My project today features a birthday card for my Niece’s birthday yesterday. Hope she liked it. I chose the background paper from How Sweet It Is Designer Paper as it reminded me of her sweet and bubbly nature.

The main image comes from the Piece of Cake stamp set and is stamped on a Whisper White punch out of the Starburst Punch, I’m not entirely convinced I got this part of the card just right as the candle don’t look right to me.

I grounded my birthday cake image by using a banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits and to finish the card I added some of the Clear Faceted Gems which I coloured Lovely Lipstick using a Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me again soon.
