Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Cool Treats

Hello and welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. This week we are featuring the Cool Treats Bundle and Happy Celebrations.

If you're already hopping, then you've just come from the Talented Maike Ulbrich's Blog. If you're just joining, No Problem! Start here and Hop around with the button below!

So as you can see, I got the Cool Treats Bundle! Which I absolutely love! It's fun and playful and reminds me of summer. And Summer is exactly what inspired me to make these cute little drink charms, for those fancy summer beverages.

My charms are made from shrink plastic, which in Canada, we call it "Shrinky Dinks". It can be found at most craft stores.

These were really easy to make. I simply cut out a circle, die cut the images out and then brayerd the rough side with 2 different ink colours. Once that dried, I stamped the sayings on the shiny side and followed the directions to shrink them.

I decorated my rings with the co-oridinating Sprinkles Embellishments and used two crimp beads at either end to keep them from falling off. The rings and crimp beads can be found in the jewelry section of major craft stores.

Up Next is the Talented Mercedes Weber. Enjoy the rest of the hop!

  1. The first thing that comes to mind is: who, I want the same for evenings with friends this summer! It is so beautiful and practical also not to lose its glass! Here in France, crazy plastic is mostly on the internet and I have never tried, but seeing the result here, I tell myself, why not try? Bravo for creativity Martha!
