My first project today uses Build A Treat and Build a Treat Borders. These dies and stamps are just adorable and concepted by Sankari Wegman. These sets will provide endless opportunities for building your own treats and borders. The sets are part of the Whimsical Wishes Collection and illustrated by Nancy McKinney.
Both Build A Treat and Build a Treat Borders have coordinating dies for even more creative fun! Build a Treat includes 30 images and sentiments to build the treats of your dreams. Build a Treat Borders includes 5 borders - each approximately 6" long with options for both coloring and solid stamping.
My first card is all about the ice cream cones!! My papers are I also used the Medium Scallop Border Die, ribbon, twine, and my sewing machine.
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa. I stamped one of the ice cream cones from Build a Treat, and used the die set to cut out my cone and two scoops of ice cream. My background is cut with the Take Note Die 2.
My border is made with the Build a Treat Border. First I stamped the cones in Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa. Then I stamped the ice cream scoops and colored them with Copics. Then I cut the cones and ice cream scoops out with their coordinating dies. Just so cute!! I love this idea.
Next up I used the new stamp set Sweet Party and Build a Border Die again. Sweet Party is a cute petite party set that pays homage to our very first stamp set - Sweet Celebration and was designed to help celebrate TE's 3rd birthday. The stamp set is illustrated by Jessie Oleson. You get the party scene image plus 3 cute sentiments. Purchase this Petite stamp set for $7.95 or get it for FREE with a purchase of $100.
I stamped the image in brown ink and colored with Copics. The cupcake paper is paper pieced. The papers are I added twine and stitching and the Large Scallop Border die.
I used Liquid Pearls to added frosting to my cake and cookie, and whipped cream on my pie. I sprinkled a little glitter on the Perfect Pearls while they were still wet. I used the Build A Treat Border to stamp my cupcakes. This time I used the solid cupcake image and stamped in VersaMagic Pink Petunia. I added rhinestones to my cherries!
