Stampin'Up Cool Treats!



Do you have the watercolor wash stamp set #139538?
Watercolor Wash Clear-Mount Background Stamp

I highly recommend it! That's how I created this fun background. I inked up the stamp with Soft Sky ink and lightly tapped Marina Mist ink on the centre of the stamp, then Dapper Denim ink on the top of the stamp using a Stampin' sponge. I love how it creates an ombre effect.

I used the Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits dies on the rest of the card. You can buy these as a bundle for $61.00 #145181 and then get the coordinating Tasty Treats designer series paper for FREE as a sale-a-bration item.

Do you notice the cute spoon?  It was cut from silver foil card stock.

All you need is 6" x 6" designer series paper and the Basket Bunch stamp set #143186.  If you own a Big Shot you'll probably want the Basket Builder Framelit Dies to go along with the stamp set.  The Bundle #144731 is $60.25 which will give you a sale-a-bration product for FREE.
