Stampin' Up Tasty Treats, Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Class - Card II

Today will be our last cold, cold day for a while.  A high of 30 and still the winds and clouds persist which makes the windchill into the teens.  I can't wait to see if the 50's still hold true for the weekend.  Mainly, I'm looking forward to the sun shining!

My female cat Natasha had been limping quite badly for a couple days.  My good friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, said that Natasha would be better in a couple days and then 'Look out Boris!"  Boris, being my male cat, is a real instigator and constantly picks rumbly, tumbly, Brotherly, Sisterly, playful fights with Natasha.  Well, Kadie was right!  Natasha is sure getting back at Boris. Natasha has long hair and Boris has short hair.  I think that they are part Persian.  Anyways, Natasha is doing a dive bomb on Boris.  Too funny!  There was a lot of growling and hissing going on too!  Sorry for the blurry picture; but, they are just too fast for me!

My share for today is the second card in a Cool Treats Card Class that Stampin' Up designed for their Stampin' Up Demonstrators to share with our Customers.  I liked this class for several reasons (besides 3 awesome cards and a gift card holder): different size of cards that I haven't made yet, the use of Washi Tape, a lot of stamping and making my own envelopes.

The Stampin' Up products that I used are Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper, Cool Treats Stamp Set and Frozen Treats Framelits Dies. 

Let's take a look at my second card:

Love, love and love this Sentiment and it makes for such a Fun Card!!!  So Stinkin' Cute!!!

My Card Base is Watermelon Wonder Cardstock cut at 3-1/2" x 7" and scored and folded at 3-1/2".

My Card Front Panel is the Watermelon Wonder Striped pattern from Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper cut at 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I cut about 12" of Stampin' Up's 3/8" Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon and adhered it to my Card Front Panel as shown in the picture above.  I Centered the Ribbon across my card and adhered it down with Mono Multi Purpose Glue in the Center of the Ribbon only so the Glue would not show through the Ribbon on the Outside Edges.  I then folded each end on an angle and adhered both of them down.  It takes just a bit for the Glue to dry.  I like to put a line of Glue down and let it sit for a bit so it gets tacky and then lay my Ribbon down or you could use SU's Fast Fuse.

My Second Card Front Panel is Whisper White Cardstock cut at 2-1/2" x 3-1/4".  

Using SU's Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, I die cut the Sundae Cup from the Crumb Cake Diamond pattern in the Tasty Treats DSP.

I then die cut the Spoon from SU's Silver Foil Sheet.

I adhered the Spoon to the Sundae Cup and to the Whisper White piece with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Cool Treats Stamp Set, I stamped the Sentiment above the Sundae Cup in Pool Party Ink.

I then stamped the Cherry in Watermelon Wonder Ink and the Stem in Old Olive Ink just above the Sentiment. 

I adhered the Whisper White piece to my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I just LOVE the Yummy colors in the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  And, yes!  They make me want to go have a Frozen Treat!!!  =)

I trimmed out a square of the Sundae Cup Pattern to measure 6" x 6" for a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Card size to make my Envelope.  I lined the Left Edge of the paper up to the 3" Mark on the Envelope Punch Board and punched and scored the paper.  I then lined up the score lines with the notch on the Envelope Punch Board and punched and scored three more times rotating my paper after each punch and score.  I then assembled my Envelope with SU's Tear & Tape Adhesive Tape.

And, another Fun, Fun Card.  Thank you so much Stampin' Up for this Card Class.

I'll be sharing the third Card tomorrow and the Gift Card Holder on Monday.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!



  1. First and MOST happy that Natasha is doing BETTER. I was sure Boris would get his pay-back once Natasha was back on steady ground. YIPPPIEEEE Natasha....YOU GO GIRL (Sorry Boris). And secondly.....what a darling little card you created. Good enough to eat. THANKS for sharing!!!

  2. I don't often post, but being a huge cat lover...I just have to!! Are they litter-mates? Or, have you had the two of them for awhile? Our male cats, that came from the same litter got into 2 bad fights after being together 11-12 years. It broke my heart & the sound(s) were horrifying. When the first fight happened they were on our screened porch & one of the cats ended up at the vets because his ear had been torn from top to bottom. It happened about 8PM; and while the Vet saw them she couldn't do anything until morning b/c he had eaten (the other cat had bites, but nothing bad). He came home stitched up & had a tiny notch out of his ear. About a year later...again on the porch, in the evening, another terrifying fight and I thought I'd never get them apart. The amount of fur ripped out-unbelievable. I got them separated but the fight continued when they ran inside, downstairs. What seemed like forever, I got them apart w/a broom (after urinating from pain from the fight). The Vet told us this often happens w/cats who have been together a long time w/no issues. What happened is they saw another cat in our yard; because they got aggressive, but couldn't get to the cat, they attacked each other. The same thing happened w/a friends cats who had been together over 15 years. I have to say both of our cats were the sweetest & loved each other (unfortunately one of them died 10 months ago @ age 13). Even hours after the fights they'd want to be together. So long story short, be watchful. It truly broke my heart that they fought; especially because of just seeing another cat!! After these fights when they'd see another cat out the window I'd have to separate them; window or screen didn't matter!

    Your cards are very cut too!!

    1. Thanks for all the information Gayle. Actually, Boris didn't hurt Natasha's leg or hip or whatever it was that made her limp. I think she injured slightly when she jumped off the bed. And, then Boris wanted to keep playing with her and, of course, Natasha did not want to play as she was hurt. Boris kept pestering her so when Natasha got better, she paid Boris back for pestering her.
      All is good with my two playful, Brother and Sister Cats. I will definitely keep your comments in mind though for future!
      Thanks for sharing with me!
