“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!

Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box

Today’s project, Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box, is a quick project that you can make for Valentine’s Day or for any time you want to share a little love with someone.  The attendees in the latest class were able to recreate the heart embellished mini pizza box for themselves. The mini pizza boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog are one of my favorite to use when giving a small gift or treat to family and friends.  The ways to decorate are endless. The steps to recreate the box are below the project photo.

Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box

Materials:
  • Mini Pizza Boxes
  • Cut the following from the All My Love Designer Series Paper (DSP): heart pattern: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ for top, 4 pieces of 3/4″ x 3-1/4″ for sides; Belly Band coordinating pattern: 1-1/2″ x 10″
  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″; 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ 
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Small floral heart from All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Meant to Be Cling Stamp Set
  • Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies
  • Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 
  • Basic Gray Classic Stamping Pad
  • 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon
  • Basic Rhinestone Jewels
  • Liquid Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals
Instructions for Embellishing Mini Pizza Boxes:
  1. Assemble mini pizza box. Note – the shiny side is the box interior.
  2. Use adhesive to attach the All My Love Designer Series Paper to tops and sides of mini pizza box.
  3. Wrap the coordinating strip of Designer Series Paper around the box to create a belly band.  Tip: wrap so that it paper meets on top of box – the embellishments will cover the seam.
  4. Stamp “Just for You” on Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray stamp pad.  Cut with the medium scallop heart die.  
  5. Cut the Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  One large narrow heart die and one with the medium scallop heart die.  Notice that the medium scallop heart die cuts both a heart and an open scalloped, stitched heart.  You will use the open scalloped, stitched heart.  (Save the small Lovely Lipstick heart for another project.)
  6. Texture emboss the large Lovely Lipstick heart using the Subtle Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder.
  7. Use the small heart die to cut the small floral heart from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.
  8. Refer to photo for placement of the hearts.  NOTE: Be sure that you only put adhesive on areas that will attach to the belly band.
  9. The sentiment heart is attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  10. Embellish with rhinestones and small Whisper White bow.

While grocery shopping, I saw individual packages of Pepperidge Farms Chessmen Cookies.   The packages fit perfectly in the boxes!Mini Pizza Box with heart embellishment and cookie treats
