Stamp Review Crew – Cool Treats

Welcome to our Stamp Review Crew hop!!!

You’re joining a group of very talented demonstrators from around the world as we share with you the Cool Treats stamp set, and of course, coordinating Frozen Treats framelits.

This is the featured bundle….

I’m excited to share that they didn’t end up on the retirement list and we’ll be able to play with them for another year as they appear in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue!!!

You may have come here from the beautiful Ann Schach and her awesome Cool Treats creation!  Leave Ann a comment on her blog – she personally responds to all of them – amazing!!!


This is my Cool Treats project for the hop.

It’s cool…. but not ice cream themed!

I’ve used the stamps and framelits to make a cute little troll!

Do you remember these from your childhood?  I do!

It was the swirly stamp that first got me thinking down the character path.

And the framelits work really well for character art because they cut into the stamp.  No white border!

Here’s the pieces you’ll need to make your own troll:

Hair – swirl stamp* in Melon Mambo

Head – scoop stamp* (upside down) in Flirty Flamingo

Ears – spoon stamp* in Flirty Flamingo

Eyes – Cookie Cutter Builder punch in Whisper White & one of the dots sprinkles dots in Basic Black marker

Nose – spoon stamp in Melon Mambo cut down to size

Mouth – hand drawn in Flirty Flamingo marker

Dress – cone stamp in Bermuda Bay cut with even edges

Arms – straight stick stamp with strawberry top stamp in Flirty Flamingo  hand cut

Legs – tapered stick stamp in Flirty Flamingo hand cut

Headband – curved accent stamp in Emerald Envy hand cut

Flowers – from the upcoming Colorful Seasons stamp set in Bermuda Bay hand cut

* indicates cut with coordinating framelit


This cute little troll could be made it lots of colours!

I did have a moment when I was trying to make eyes without my long term favourite Owl Punch – can you believe it’s on the retirement list???

I’m going to have to be creative with my character art – all suggestions welcome!!

Next up on the hop is the always inspiring Yapha Mason

CASEing the Catty #120 Urban Underground

Hello!  Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

You’re joining me & my demonstrator friends as we share projects we’ve created that are inspired by the photos within the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

To “CASE” is to Copy & Share Everything.  Or Copy & Selectively Edit.  It’s a great way to make the most of your Stampin’ Up! catalogue!

We’re steadily making our way through the Occasions catalogue and today’s hop features the Urban Underground section of the catalogue & adjoining pages.

I love the Urban Underground suite!  One of my favourite colour combinations is yellow, white & black/gray.

This is the photo that caught my eye today…

Have close look at the card on the bottom right.

Did you know you can make a shaker pocket on a card using a cello bag?

How clever are the creative team at Stampin’ Up!???

It’s so easy to do.  Just measure your bag size, cut a piece of DSP or cardstock to fit, add your shaker pieces and seal!

You can then attach this to your card base and add all the embellishments you want.


The Urban Underground suite was designed to be blokey & masculine – and it’s great for that!!!

But, if you follow my blog, you will have seen some of my ‘girls like … too’ cards.

I thought this design would be perfect for that theme.

By changing up the tools to think & adding in traditional girly pink, this card goes from a sorry card to a tribute to a bestie!

Maybe one who has her own set of tools – because “girls like tools too”!

The loose screws & bolts in the cello bag move around as the card moves.

There’s not as much movement as a traditional shaker card – but enough to make it fun!

I decorated the inside of this card with more of the Build It Framelit die pieces.

How cool is the ruler?


This really is the easiest shaker card you’ll ever make.

So easy, that I whipped up another one in an ice cream theme.

The sprinkles punch (which has been gathering dust!) is perfect for the filling and goes great with the sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set.

Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added some swirly strawberry sauce to the ice cream.

Accidentally dropping it before it was dry added some extra texture!  I’m so impatient with waiting for things to dry!!!

The inside of this card was easy to decorate using the Tasty Treats Washi Tape.


Be sure to have a go at this style of shaker card.  You won’t believe how easy & mess free it is!!!

Please keep following the blog hop for more inspiring projects.

Next up is the gorgeous Rachel!

We’ve love for you to upload your own Urban Underground inspired creation to our Facebook page.  Join the fun!!!

Happy creating!

Cool & Cute Shaker Cards

Hello Saturday!  I’m in total awe of the weekends now that our weeks are so busy!

It’s a time to sleep in, catch up with friends and, when the weather is good, find some sun!

This weekend we have a 4th birthday party to attend, so I’ve been playing around with some girly shaker cards.

The first version is yesterday’s class card using the Cool Treats bundle.

How cute are the Sprinkles Embellishments???


The second version was inspired by the awesome unicorn card that Jenni from paulinespapier made.

I just loved the cute unicorn & couldn’t wait to add one to a card of mine!

The Sprinkles not only make for good shaker material – but also as a unicorn crown!


This is one of my favourite little sayings!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend with perfect weather & filled with the perfect mix of weekend magic!
