Goodbye…Jar of Sweets

Aww I’m so sad that the Sweetest Thing stamp set and matching dies are leaving us, I’ve had so much fun playing with these and all the co-ordinating products in the How Sweet It Is Suite.

Framed Jar of Sweets birthday Card 1

For this card I added the Rectangle Stitched Dies to create a background and a frame and then added a few die-cut jars and a simple greeting in the corner.

Here are a couple more of my favourite projects with this bundle:

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.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this bright fun birthday card which I think would work well whoever the sender.

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.

Simple Stamping – Sweetest Thing

I wasn’t sure if I could create a simple stamping project with the Sweetest Thing stamp set as for me I’m finding its a stamp set which needs you to do a bit of work to make a nice card. After trying various options I’ve found a simple card I can share with you that I like. The best thing about this card is it will look just as good whatever colour inks you use or how many different colours you use, so have a play and find your favourite colour combination.

I stuck with a scheme closely matching the How Sweet Is It DSP but that’s just because those were the inks out on my desk. So I used Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch, Melon Mambo and I used Old Olive instead of Granny Apple Green simply because I wanted to use the Old Olive Linen Thread to attach the little greeting tags from the Sweet Pins and Tags set.

Hope you can join me again tomorrow for another “Sweet” project.

Marshmallows Anyone?

I don’t know about you but as soon as I started using the Sweetest Thing stamp set one of the sweet stamps reminded me of marshmallows. How about you? I know they could also be Midget Gems of Jelly Tots here in the UK, I’d love to know what this cute little stamp reminds you of?

With marshmallows on the brain it was only natural to think hot chocolate and to pull out the Coffee Cafe stamp set and matching dies to make my marshmallow inspired card.

The background was created by randomly stamping those cute little marshmallows all over and then I coloured some in Dark Flirty Flamingo with the Stampin’ Blends to represent the pink ones which are a firm favourite in our house.

A little stamping and die-cutting and my hot chocolate cup was created along with a big dollop of cream and a straw in case you don’t want a creamy mustache.

To finish the card a matted my hot chocolate cup onto and oval layer to help it stand out from my marshmallow covered background and then added some of the Stitch Edge Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo pack to add a pop of colour.

I hope you like today cards and I don’t know about you but now I’m off to make my own mug of hot chocolate and yes there will be marshmallows too!

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.
