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.

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.
