Something Sweet &Treat Cups

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.

How cool are those owls peeking out?

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.

He would be welcome in my garden, so long as he didn't eat my vegies!
