Posted in Birthday, Cool Treats

Cherry Sunday

I just love it when a stamp set comes with coordinating framelits dies.  I especially love it when Stampin’ Up offers the stamp set and framelits in a bundle because I can save 10% by purchasing the bundle!

The Cool Treats Bundle (item 145181, page 32 Occasions catalog) comes with both the “Cool Treats” photopolymer stamp set and the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  I really put those products to use when I made my display board samples.

For today’s sweet card, I started with a 4″ by 5-1/4″ panel of Crumb Cake Card Stock and cut the center out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  Then I embossed the Crumb Cake mat using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.   Next, I stamped the sentiment from the “Cool Treats” stamp set in Watermelon Wonder in the center of a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base.  PRO TIP: I used the Crumb Cake piece to position the sentiment.

Next, I stamped a cherry in Real Red and Garden Green ink and cut it out with a Frozen Treats Framelit.  I adhered this to the Whisper White Card Stock, near the stamped sentiment.  I cut out several more cherries from Real Red and Watermelon Wonder scraps to use as the elements in the shaker piece.  I also cut a few spoons from a Silver Foil Sheet to use in the shaker.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a piece of Window Sheet behind the opening in the Crumb Cake mat and then added an Adhesive Strip around the opening.  I dropped in my cherries and spoons and then adhered the Crumb Cake mat to the card base using additional Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I used the Frozen Treats Framelits to make a sundae to add as an element to the front of the card.  I cut the dish from a Silver Foil Sheet, a Chocolate Chip, a Very Vanilla, and a Watermelon Wonder ice cream scoop, and  an Early Espresso chocolate sauce element.  I adhered these to the bowl using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This card is so cute (if I do say so myself–and I do)!!

Masculine Mondays

Here is another instalment of Masculine Mondays. The cards shown here can be used for the men in our life life for birthdays, graduations, thank you cards and just because I care… because they need to be shown little love too!

Are you ready for fun card which is perfect for celebrating any occasion worth celebrating? I mean really, how can you not be ready to have some fun when you see balloons, right? I used the Ballon Pop-Up Thinlets die to create the focal point for this fun shaker card.

When you use the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Die, it makes assembly even easier. All you have to do is cut out the cardstock for the inside of your card, and position the thinlit die in the center. There is a “point” on the thinlit die, to show you where to position the die to the center. Then it cuts out all pieces, and even does the score lines for you. I made it happen on the very first try. The stamp set itself is good for all ages.

There is even a greeting that says “Open me Already”, you could use this on gift tags for both birthdays and Christmas. The greetings in this set are split up, so that you can use different wording each time. For example, one time you could say “The best is yet to come, let’s celebrate” or the next time you could say “The best is yet to come, Party On” The balloons that are in this stamp set, also co-ordinate with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, so lots of uses with this card, for young and old.
Bundle and Save… if you purchase both the Stamp Set and the Thinlits Die together you will save 10%. You could also earn one or both FREE or discounted just by hosting your own class. If you want more information on hosting your own, email me today, I would be happy to give you the details.
