Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Sweet Thing Birthday

Happy happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope the week is progressing apace for you – and that the weekend is in sight!  I’ve got a massage today and – not gonna lie – I am READY for it!

Just want to remind you right quick that today is the last day to cash in on Double Peppermints!  Don’t miss out!

My card today is one that’s kind of out of my comfort zone color-wise, but…I think it turned out cute! I used the new Sweet Thing stamp set and a few pieces of How Sweet It Is DSP to make a fun little birthday card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Tufted Dynamic TIEF and then matted on Pineapple Punch for the card front.

Next are two panels of the How Sweet It Is DSP, both matted on Pineapple Punch and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of new Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and secured it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I cut the gummy bears paper with the largest square Stitched Shapes Framelits die, matted it on a scalloped square of Pineapple Punch and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the Sweetest Thing stamp set, is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Coastal Cabana card stock.  I also heat embossed the pretty frame.  When all was cooled off, I cut it with the die in the bundled Jar of Sweets Framelits and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the “bow”, I tied a short piece of the reversible ribbon around the length that was there, trimming the ends to look bow-ish.

I did a quick fussy cut of a lollipop and slid it under the “bow” – popping the candy part on with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I also cut a few gummy bears and added them to the sentiment with Liquid Glue and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used the gummy bears image in the Sweetest Thing set and stamped it multiple times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I did a little coloring with my Coastal Cabana, Pinepple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch mat and into my Coastal Cabana card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more gummy bears on the front…

…and a little more How Sweet It Is DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun little bundle?  So bright and cheery and looking like a party-on-paper!  Sweetest Thing is just one of the great new sets in the 2019 Occasions catalog – and…you can also get the suite at a sweet deal with my Special Bundle #3!  But only for a few more days – so, snap it up toot suite!  See what I did there?!?

    I love this cheerful and happy card. Those are fun layers. And that’s one muddy paw! Glad he’s on the rug!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – that’s a huge reason there IS a rug there! And – he’s so smart. If he’s all dry he just keeps on walking. If he’s wet – he stops right on the rug and waits for one of us to dry him off!! Thanks much, Susan! 🙂

  3. Such a cute card! Fun colors and papers, and I love that embossing!!
    Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
