Cool Treats Suite (2017 Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

Cool Treats suite is one of my favourite suites in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue. It can be found on pages 32-33 in the Australian catalogue. I love the colours used for the papers (Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White). And the stamps- wow, the two step stamping really gives a dimensional look which is lovely. Plus some of the sentiments can be used with other sets – they aren’t restricted to the one set. Love this!

Today I am sharing three cards which are VERY similar. The reason I am sharing all three is that I wanted to show you how you can slightly change up a design depending on what items you have at your disposal. This card design is one which was originally shared by Stampin’ Up! to demonstrators and I just *loved* it! I wanted to re-create it as soon as I saw it.

Here’s my first card…
Happiest Birthday – Version 1

For this card, I stamped up the images, added a strip of paper to the right hand side of the card and a small strip just under the sentiment. It’s a very simple card.

For the second card, I added another strip of paper to the right hand of the card just to give it a little more interest. Then I added a few more rhinestones, because who doesn’t like a little bling?

Here’s the card…
Happiest Birthday – Version 2

For the last card I decided I really needed to invest in the coordinating Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape and the Sprinkles Embellishments to see if it would really lift the card that bit further.

Here’s the card…
Happiest Birthday – Version 3

So there’s three cards – almost the same, but slightly different. I think my favourite is the second one…although I do love the shape and texture of the cone in the third one. Which one is your favourite?

Should you be interested in purchasing this suite (or parts of it) for your own use, please visit my store at Stampers Workshop. And don’t forget to take advantage of all the Sale-A-Bration offers!

Happy Stamping!
