Happy Wednesday!  Today I want to share with you a project I’ve wanted to try for a while now – a debossed card using one of my favorite stamp sets: Cool Treats.

I love how fun and fresh these images are!

This project starts out using the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders to create a valley on the Whisper White cardstock.  On this sample I’ve used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and Pool Party.

I did a few different colour versions to show that this can be done for either gender or any age.  For someone more sophisticated, I’d choose very soft colours, for example.   But who doesn’t like ice blocks or at least have warm memories eating one?

 

This colour combination is So Saffron, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder.  I’ve also switched the card base to Pool Party.

All the images are from the Cool Treats stamp set.  This can also be bundled with the dies for a discount, which are very useful for future projects.

This project is March’s Birthday Club project – purchase kits of this project, pre-cut and ready to go!  You can purchase just the kits or with the stamps, dies, and folder!

 

And please enjoy this video tutorial!

As promised, here are the pants (trousers!) I stamped over the summer.  It was a lot of fun and very cool to alter the fabric like this.   For this project, I used the large flourish stamp from Baroque Motifs.

Stampin-up-stamping-on-fabr
Unfortunately, although I drafted up the pattern to fit me, I drew it up last October when I was about to compete. So, I will have to give myself another month or so before I can get my bottom into this pair. Not so clever of me.

Stampin-up-pants-pocket
 It was a little tricky to get these two patterns to match with the pocket, but it's a patch pocket, so I had a little play.

Stampin-up-antique-brad-but
It took me a couple days of pondering to figure out how I could use those fabulous Antique Brads as a button.  In the end, I cut the legs of Brad and hot glued him to a an existing button shank.  I'll have to be gentle with it, but it will work great.  So no cookies when I'm wearing these.

Stampin-up-pants-yoke

I love how the back turned out!  I'm glad I stamped on the yoke bit, too. 

Stampin-up-pants-back-pocke
I used my bedazzler (I know, very 80's) and blinged up the flourish a bit.  Who doesn't love a few rhinestones on their bottom?

Hope you enjoyed and feel inspired to try your stamps on something new!

Yesterday just really got away from me!  I had four huge boxes arrive with orders, so many of you can expect your Last Chance List items to arrive shortly.

This is a very very cute project taken from a swap from convention.  The swap is not mine, so I don't have a name to give credit (If someone does, please add a comment), but it's darn cute.  Thanks so much for creating this!

This beautiful card is strongly based on a swap given to me by the lovely Vanessa Webb at last year's Incentive Trip to Noosa Heads.  I just loved it!

So I've redone it up here with current colours and a few tweaks:

Stampin-up-baroque

I just love those large, vanilla pearls. So elegant and they are the absolute perfect thing for an antiqued project.

Stamin-up-faux-suede

Although the layout is simple, this project features a couple of great techniques.  One of which is the faux suede:

(My girls were competing today for cheerleading, so had to snag the first person to knock on my door.  thanks Bron!)
