“How Sweet It Is” Sweet Treats

Today, I am sharing a variety of sweet treats highlighting the How Sweet It Is product suite.  I love the bright, colorful prints in the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  What makes it even better is the Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies perfectly match some of the candy jar images.  Plus the coordinating Sweetest Thing photopolymer stamp set offers more project options.  The stamps and dies are in the Sweetest Thing Bundle.

The design inspiration for the sample cards is from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. Coordinating cardstock colors are used for sample cards.  Each card measures is a 4″ x 4″square.  The sentiments on each card are from the Sweetest Thing stamp set.

Sweet Cup

One of the fun products in the suite is the package of Sweet Cups.  The sweet cups are perfect to package treats or small gifts.  To cover the cup base, create a template by tracing a deconstructed cup or contact me for a template!  Use cup template to cut a piece of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Wrap the paper around the cup base and attach with strong adhesive.   A coordinating piece of designer series paper is cut using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies (in the Annual Catalog).  

Notice the sweet cup lid?  The candy jar is standing upright.  It’s easy to do.  First, select the jar shape from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Then cut the jar with the matching framelit from Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies.  Next, cut a slit in the middle of the large circle designer series paper and slip the base of the jar into the slit.  Bend the base to create a tab to hold the jar upright.  Attach to the sweet cup lid using strong adhesive.  To complete the embellishment, use the Sweet Pins & Tags accessory kit and Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ reversible ribbon to add the finishing touches. 

This is a fun suite and the bright colors are wonderful for creating cheerful projects.  You can place your order via my online store and be sure to contact me for the Sweet Cup template!

The Beauty of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper

Have you seen the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper on page 11 in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog?  It is a gorgeous paper!  The beauty of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper is the elegant design.  In my opinion, the catalog photos do not do justice for the paper!  A vellum print from the designer paper creates the primary background layer on the card below.   The Floral Romance Suite includes the Wonderful Romance bundle with the Wonderful Romance Stamp Set and Wonderful Framelits Dies.  The sentiment and coordinating leaf embellishments are easily stamped and cut using the Wonderful Romance bundle.   The beauty of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) is that you do not need to add a lot of embellishment…let the paper be the feature!

Alternate Pumpkin Cards

With all the products included in the Paper Pumpkin box each month, you can create alternate pumpkin cards.  I like to experiment with the products and see what else I can come up with.  There is nothing wrong with thinking outside the box, so see what you can come up with too.  You will have so much fun doing it. 

Here are a few I put together.  It’s an adorable stamp set and creates the perfect cards for children to take to school. 

 

If you are not a subscriber of Paper Pumpkin, you can sign up here.  It’s always a nice surprise when that box arrives.  I take it into my craft room and put my creativity to work. I wish Paper Pumpkin was around when I first started crafting.  It’s a great way to help bring your creativity to life.
