I Hope Your Day Is As Sweet As You Are (Cool Treats Bundle from the Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

A very quick and simple card to share today using the Cool Treats bundle, once again, from the Occasions catalogue. As you can tell I love this set! A little trick for spacing the ice cream evenly is to use a piece of Press’n Seal by Glad. Simply space the images across the card. When you are happy with how it looks, take a piece of Press’n Seal and lay it over the top. This will grab the images. Lift up. Add adhesive to the images and press them down again. Rub over the images to ensure they are stuck in place and gently remove the Press’n Seal. Voila! They are exactly where you placed them!

Here’s the card…

Materials used: Stamps – Cool Treats; Dies – Frozen Treats Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits; Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Whisper White; and Stamp Pads – Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder.

You’re the Cherry to My Sundae (Cool Treats Bundle from the Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

The Cool Treats stamp set and framelits die bundle remains one of my favourite bundles in the Occasions catalogue (pages 32-33). The card I am sharing today uses products from this bundle and the coordinating Designer Series Paper. It is a simple card design. The only really fiddly bit was putting all the sprinkles on the top of the ice cream (and I’m sorry if you now want ice cream! lol).

Here’s the card…
You’re the Cherry to my Sundae

More Cards using the You’ve Got This Stamp Set (2016/2017 Annual Catalogue)

Somebody stop me! I just cannot stop using the You’ve Got This stamp set from the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue. Today’s cards are, once again, variations of the same theme but I hope you will enjoy seeing the different looks you can create. The cards are very simple to recreate and if you like colouring, you will love this stamp set! You might notice some of the cards are similar to cards I’ve previously posted. That’s okay! Don’t be afraid to try card designs you’ve previously tried but mix up the stamps you use, as well as the colours and embellishments. Okay, let’s get started!

Here’s the card…
You've Got This
You’ve Got This
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Diagonal Stripe Background; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Black; Wink of Stella and Rhinestones.

By changing the sentiment and the colours used to finish the card, you have a “same, but different look”.

Here’s the card…
Good Things are Going to Happen
Good Things are Going to Happen
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Diagonal Stripe Background; Stampin’ Write Markers – Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Black; Wink of Stella and Rhinestones.

Let’s change things up slightly. This time, let’s highlight the flowers with Smoky Slate. You could use a softer shade of gray or even a blue shade to highlight the images. You could also soften the edges to have it fade away. I also decided not to centre the stamped panel just to be a little different.

Here’s the card…
I'm Here for You
I’m Here for You
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Black; and Rhinestones.

 

Next up is a super simple card! I’ve used one stamp pad to ink all the images, including the sentiment. Then I’ve used just one marker to colour all the flowers. By adding a little of the clear Wink of Stella to the image you give it a little shimmer to make it a bit more interesting. So simple! You can certainly add additional colours, shading, embellishments, etc, but don’t ever feel like you have to!

Here’s the card…
Wishing You A Very Happy Birthday
Wishing You A Very Happy Birthday
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Big on Birthdays; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo; Classic Stampin’ Pad – Chocolate Chip; Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo; and Wink of Stella.

The next two cards are based on other favourite designs of mine and I will have many, many more cards like this to share soon. Once I get started colouring, I usually end up making lots of these cards.

First up, let’s change up the colour palette.

Here’s the card…
Happiest of Birthdays to You
Happiest of Birthdays to You
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Birthday Blooms; Stampin’ Write Markers – Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Smokey Slate; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder; and Rhinestones.

And last card for today, is one I have just finished. I LOVE it!

Here’s the card…
You've Got This

Happy Birthday Shaker Card Balloon Adventures Bundle (Occasions 2017)

Hi Everyone,

The Balloon Adventures bundle in the Occasions catalogue is another of the new items which jumped out at me immediately for its versatility and creativity. I thought it would be so fun to use it, not only to make a pop card like it was designed to do, but also it would be so effective as a shaker card. The colour palette may look familiar to you. It is the colour palette used for the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper. It was still on my craft table from my previous cards and I thought it would be a great colour combination for the card I had in mind.

This stamp and die bundle also coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Unfortunately I do not have this punch yet so I had to be a little more creative in order to achieve the look I was going for. The coordinating die set does have balloon shaped dies but they are patterned and I wanted to stick with a stamped look. It was easily fixed though – I just ran the main die again through the Big Shot but this time I used Whisper White cardstock instead of Watermelon Wonder. I then stamped the designs I wanted and carefully cut out the shape. It isn’t as perfect as it would have been using the punch but I am okay with that.

To create the shaker box, I used the brand new Foam Adhesive Strips. Love these. They are long and narrow which really made it simple to create the box. I also added very small pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips under the two outside balloons and a little under the sentiment too. I thought this might stop all of the lovely Sprinkles Embellishments from going to the bottom when the card was standing upright – and it did.

Here’s the card…
Happy Birthday

More from the Cool Treats Suite (Occasions 2017)

Hi Everyone,

Are you all loving the new Occasions catalogue? I am! So many things to inspire. I have made quite a number of cards using the Cool Treats Suite and I’ll be sharing more of them over the coming weeks. For the cards below, I have stuck with the colour scheme featured in the catalogue (Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Peakaboo Peach, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder). You don’t have to, of course! The main reason I did was because I stamped up a whole pile of images in one go and decided it would be best to have them match the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Once again I am sharing two designs which are VERY similar. All that I have changed is the dominant colour and I’ve angled the ice creams. I’d love to know which design you prefer.

Here’s the first card…
Happiest Birthday

Can you spy the texture of the card background?  All I did to create this was stamp the cone stamp repeatedly over the background.  I used Watermelon Wonder so it tied nicely with the card itself – not too overpowering.  The blue watercolour on the main panel is just Pool Party watered down and swiped over the cardstock.  Don’t be too heavy handed as it is not watercolour paper.  You don’t want it to pill or ruin the cardstock.   A little bit of water is fine though!

Now while I liked this card design, I thought I might change it up a little.  The use of Pool Paper really gives it a different look.  Once again I used one of the cones stamp to give the cardstock a look of texture.  This time I decided to angle the ice creams too.

Here’s the card…
Happiest Birthday

So can you tell which one is my favourite? I have to say that it is the second one. This type of card is super simple to create but it looks so cute! If you stamp up a lot of images at the one time you can relatively quickly create a whole set of cards ready for when you need them.

Don’t forget there is still time to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration promotion! For every $90 AUD you spend (before shipping), you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. And who doesn’t like free stamping supplies?!
