Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments

Today, I have paired the Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Bundle with the Suite Sentiments stamp set, to create my card to share with you. These stamp sets are featured in the 2017 Occasions Catalog, and I’m loving them both.  I think they paired nicely, don’t you?

I also think this Designer Series Paper, Tasty Treats, is so fun to work with.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder (remember, this color is retiring in June!) .  First, I cut a panel of the striped Tasty Treats DSP, and adhered it to a panel of Crumb Cake.  I cut the other Tasty Treats design on a diagonal and adhered it also to the Crumb Cake layer.  A length of Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon (also retiring in June!) was then cut and adhered using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Watermelon Wonder card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the sprinkles stamp from Cool Treats, in Crumb Cake ink, all over a Whisper White Stitched Shape Oval, and backed it with a Watermelon Wonder scalloped oval.  The Crumb Cake ice cream cone was die cut using 2 of the dies from the Frozen Treats Framelits.  I stamped the ice cream in Watermelon Wonder, stamping off onto a scrap piece of paper first.   Then, I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments, full strength on top.  I had to fussy cut the ice cream because of the sentiment’s size.  Just Like You, also from Suite Sentiments, was stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink and I used one of the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies to cut it and its frame out.  The cherry was stamped and die cut, then glued on.  I cut a Lace Doily in half and adhered it to the ovals, then popped the art panel and the sentiment panel onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside sentiment, I chose a stamp from Cool Treats and decided to add a chocolate topped popsicle to the bottom left corner.  So, how do you think Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments worked on this card?  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts to create this card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats You’re Sweet!

I used the Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create a You’re Sweet birthday card to share today.  

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats You're Sweet by Cardiology by Jari

 

My card design was inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments #259.

HSS#259 sketch challenge

 

I started by adhering a panel of Tasty Treats Specialty DSP to my Watermelon Wonder card stock base.  Then I created another layered panel with Chocolate Chip card stock and Tasty Treats DSP

 

 

Next, I stamped You’re Sweet onto a panel of Whisper White.  You’re was stamped in Chocolate Chip and Sweet was stamped in Watermelon Wonder, making sure I left plenty of room in between the words for another sentiment.  I used the largest Stitched Shapes Square die to cut out the Whisper White panel.  Then I adhered it to a Watermelon Wonder scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits.

The thinner banner sentiment was then stamped in Pear Pizzaz and the ends notched with my Banner Triple Punch.  I did the same with the Pear Pizzaz card stock and adhered it to the sentiment panel.  Finally, I stamped two strawberries, a popsicle and chocolate topping, then die cut them using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  

 

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats You're Sweet Cardiology by Jari

 

Originally, I had planned to add an ice cream cone to the front of the card, but did not like it there, so I added it to the inside of my card.  Both the cone and the ice cream were stamped and die cut with the Frozen Treats Framelits dies. This Cool Treats Bundle is a favorite of mine from the Occasions catalog.  If you order the bundle and the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP, you will qualify for one free gift from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  Keep in mind though, that March 31st is coming quickly and I would hate for you to miss out on something you have had your eye on.  Don’t wait until the last week to order, or you may be disappointed!  Popular items may already be gone.  

A complete list of stamping products for this project as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Cool Treats for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday, and I am sharing a card that features the Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  This week we have a sketch challenge. 

Happy Inkin' Thursday Cool

 

Here is my take on the sketch with Cool Treats

Cool

 

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake for my card base.  Next, I cut two different panels from the Tasty Treats DSP and adhered them to a panel of Pool Party with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then, I cut a panel of Burlap Ribbon and attached it to the front and back with Tear & Tape adhesive.

 

Cool

 

Then, it was time for the fun part-the stamping!  I stamped three scoops of ice cream using the scoop stamp from Cool Treats.  I used Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink. The chocolate topping and cherry stems were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and the cherries in Watermelon Wonder.   Then, all were die cut using the Frozen Treats Framelits.  This set has 17 dies and when you purchase them with Cool Treats, you save 10%.  Add any of the items from the Cool Treats Suite found on pages 32 and 33 and you can choose a free product from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!  Yippee!!

The sentiment was stamped using the ink to rubber method, where I colored the letters with my Stampin’ Write markers, huffed on them a couple of times and then stamped onto a panel of Whisper White.  The banner was die cut with a die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.  

The Oval was cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies(now orderable!!) For the scalloped Crumb Cake rectangle, I first cut a square from one of the largest dies from the Layering Squares Framelits, then, cut off one side a little more to create a rectangle.  

Cool

The inside sentiments are also from Cool Treats, and I used Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party ink.

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Sneak Peek

I’m sharing a sneak peek of Cool Treats from the Occasions 2017 catalog today.  This stamp set and matching Frozen Treats framelits dies are available for purchase on January 4, 2017.  You are going to love this whole suite of products. There is Tasty Treats Specialty DSP, Washi Tape, Sprinkles Embellishments and a Peekaboo Peach Ombre Stampin’ Pad to add to your stash!  If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving your new catalog in the mail shortly.  Woo-Hoo!  

 

Cool Treats

 

 

My card base is Peekaboo Peach. Next came a layer of Soft Suede card.  The Whisper White panel was stamped with Peekaboo Peach using one of the background stamps from Gorgeous Grunge. I stamped a sentiment from Cool Treats in Soft Suede near the top of the panel. I then adhered this to a panel of Peekaboo Peach from the 2016-2018 In Color DSP stacks.   
Cool Treats

 

The ice cream cones were stamped in Soft Suede ink and cut out.  Then, came the scoops. They were stamped in Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron inks. I stamped some sprinkles on a couple of the scoops and stamped some chocolate and a cherry for the other. I cut them out and adhered them to each other and popped them onto the art panel with dimensionals.  
Cool TreatsAfter I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink, I stamped several of the sprinkles images in Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks.

Card stock cuts in inches and all the products needed to create this card will be at the end of the post.
