Stampin’ Up Sweetest Things for Hand Stamped Sentiments

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend? Did anyone get a lot of crafting done?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Bundle.  This is such a cheerful set with all the bright colors and fun designs.  Take a look.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #308.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Melon Mambo card base and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock and wrapped a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around it and tied a bow.  I adhered the strip to the left side of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped one of the candy jars from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the gummy bears, from the same stamp set, inside the jar in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in with my Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the candy jar out with my Jar Of Sweets Framelits Dies.  I adhered the jar, using Stampin’ Dimensionals, to an oval which I cut out using the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the oval just under the Melon Mambo strip.  I stamped the sentiment in Granny Apple Green on another scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut the smallest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I adhered the stitched oval to the center of the scalloped oval using Snail then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Granny Apple Green in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the gummy bears from the same stamp set along the bottom of the panel and colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candy jar and the gummy bears from the Sweetest Thing stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
