Stamp Review Crew: Cool Treats

Hello and Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! This week's featured stamp set is Cool Treats! A fun and yummy stamp set!

If you're already hopping, then you've just come from the Talented Nikki Spencer's Blog. If you're just joining, No Problem! Start here and follow the buttons below!

So Today, you're actually in for a treat...
Today I'm sharing 2 samples!
YES, you read that right!
TWO samples on one post!!! (SHOCKER, I KNOW!)
If you follow my blog, then you know it's rare....
I mean...
I hardly get ONE done! LOL

The cards I'm sharing today are actually cards that I created for 2 different classes: a Shaker Card Class & a Cascading Card Class . My customers loved creating them and the "Cool Treats" Bundle!

Both cards use the "Cool Treats" stamp set, the co-oridinating "Frozen Treats" framelits, and the "Tasty Treats" Specialty Designer Series Paper. I Love this whole suite!

The good news is: the stamp set and framelits are continuing over...

The bad news: the DSP, Washi Tape and Sprinkles are not. <insert SAD face here>

My first card is the shaker card. The colours I used are: Whisper White (cardstock), Soft Sky (cardstock), Watermelon Wonder (cardstock and ribbon), Early Espresso (cardstock and ink) and So Saffron (cardstock).

To make the shaker component, I used the Window Sheets, Foam Adhesive Strips and of course the fun and colourful Sprinkles embellishment!

To make my chocolate syrup, I die cut 3 pieces of "dripping syrup" from Early Espresso cardstock. I then took the "ice-cream scoop" die and used it to cut off the top of 2 "dripping syrup" pieces. I then covered the 3 pieces with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and allowed it to dry over night! Doesn't it look so sticky and yummy!

My next card is the Cascading Card. How fun is this! The colours I used are: Whisper White (cardstock), Soft Sky (cardstock), Watermelon Wonder (cardstock and ink), Peekaboo Peach (cardstock), Early Espresso (cardstock and marker), So Saffron (cardstock), Smokey Slate (cardstock) and Delightful Dijon (cardstock).

Don't you think Delightful Dijon is just the perfect colour to use for butterscotch or caramel sauce!?! And of course, the Fine Tip Glue Pen just completes the look.

I used Early Espresso cardstock for the chocolate sauce and Watermelon Wonder cardstock for the strawberry sauce. Now all I need is some bananas!

The fun thing about this card is that it actually pops out, allowing you to slip in little components and embellishments to make up you card. This fold is great to create little sceneries with, and the best part: it folds flat to mail! Do the happy dance!

If you're wondering how to do this fold, just google "cascading card" and you'll find a ton of tutorials available.

Well, thanks for hopping in, I hoped you enjoyed my two cards today. Up Next is the Talented Ann Schach! Enjoy the rest of the hop and Happy Creating as always!
