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

We got another dusting of snow last night.  It's a cold, gray day out today with the winds gusting.  Our weatherman is now saying that we should hit 60 plus degrees for this weekend and sunshine for both days.  We shall see!!!  That sounds pretty far fetched for Michigan in Mid February!

My share for today is the first 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 the first Card:

Stampin' Up's Cool Treats Bundle is another of my FAVE Stamp Sets and Framelits.  It allows me to make multiple items and be able to mix and match them as I prefer.  I also LOVE the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper as two of the sheets are single sided and have a clear glossy coating over the designs.  You will be able to see this glossy coating in some of the pictures that I'll be showing you in this post.

My Card Base is Watermelon Wonder Cardstock cut at 7" x 5" and scored and folded at 3-1/2".

My Card Front Panel is the Cherry/Berry pattern from Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper cut at 3-1/4" x 5".  I used a Sponge to apply Pool Party Ink to the Card Front Panel to create an Ombre effect.  (Pretty cool how it starts out on the dark side and fades away into the white of the DSP!)  I then adhered it to the right edge of my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  (Leave the space on the Left Side of the Card Base open to adhere your Washi Tape.)

I adhered the Striped Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape to the Left Side of my Card Base.

You can see some of the shine from the glossy coating in the upper right corner of the above picture.  It was not so easy to pick up the glossy shine in a picture as the lighting would make it a glare spot at times depending on the angle the picture was taken.
I trimmed out a rectangle Banner from the Pear Pizzazz Polka-Dot Pattern to measure 
1" x 3" and adhered it to my Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Cool Treats Stamp Set, I stamped the 'You're' in Pear Pizzazz Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Using my SU 2" Circle Punch, I punched out the word 'You're' making sure that the word was towards the top of the Circle.  I then adhered the Circle over the Banner with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I trimmed out another rectangle Banner from Crumb Cake Cardstock, stamped the word 'Sweet' in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, Heat set it with my SU Heat Tool, punched each end with SU's Triple Banner Punch and adhered it to the Circle with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.  Phew!  That's a lot in one sentence!  =)

Using SU's Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, I die cut 2 Strawberries from Real Red Cardstock (or you can use Watermelon Wonder) and 2 Strawberries from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.  I snipped off the leaves from the Real Red Strawberries, adhered them to the Pear Pizzazz Strawberries and to the Circle with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Optional:  I adhered 3 of the Square Sequins from SU's Sprinkles Embellishments randomly to the Circle with SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

Using SU's Old Olive Baker's Twine, I wrapped a 20" piece around my card and tied it into a Bow. 

I trimmed out a square of the Pear Pizzazz Polka-Dot Pattern to measure 7-1/4" x 7-1/4" to make my Envelope.  I lined the Left Edge of the paper up to the 4" 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.

What a fun Card.  LOVE that shine!!!

Thank you Stampin' Up!!!  I'll be sharing the other 2 Cards and the Gift Card Holder the rest of this week and Monday.

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!
