I've been playing with some new products from the Summer Mini, which runs from December 1st. I am loving the 1 3/4" punch and have tried it with the Treat Cups and Something Sweet stamp set.
First I made a gumball machine, which seemed the most obvious place to start! This was fun and easy. I kept the design simple and bright and let the gumball machine filled with Smarties take centre stage. The Treat Cups are super-easy to use with adhesive backing. I made a 3 fold card which meant I had to punch out my circle near the top of the card (next time I'll do it differently as now this card is a little top-heavy with the weight of the Smarties).
The next card was stamped with the uber-cute Hello Again stamp set, and I simply punched out a 1 3/4" circle and filled the treat cup with mini marshmallows.
Then I went for a no-stamp card. I used the Good Morning Sunshine DSP (both sides of one sheet) and the new Chit Chat rub-ons from the Summer Mini.
Lastly I used some stamps from Something Sweet along with the 1 3/4" punch to make a friendly caterpillar.
His eyes are stamped with the gumball stamp and the mouth with the jelly bean stamp.
