The new Sweet Centers stamp set (#116521, $29.95) from the Stampin' Up! 2009 Holiday Mini catalog is so clever. What a fun new product! Pair it with the adorable Sweet Treat Cups (#116802, 12 for only $2.95 - WOW) and you've got a cool card that even your husband will like. (And that's saying a LOT!)
I got an unsolicited, "Oh, that's a cool card", comment from my husband. I guess it's a winner!
Supplies: Sweet Centers and Birthday Wish (#114486, $6.95 on dormant list, but still available), Ballet Blue cardstock, ink & marker, Real Red cardstock, marker & Polka Dot Ribbon, Linen Thread, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Tag Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sweet Treat Cups
So how does it work? Glad you asked. Here's a mini Tutorial on how to use the Sweet Treat Cups on a card...
SWEET TREAT CUPS TUTORIAL
(Wanna reuse your Sweet Treat Card? Watch a "How'd She DO That Video"on the Heart Treat Cups and reuse your card over and over.)
FYI - The white you see around the edge of the cup is a "liner" you remove revealing adhesive.
Use the 1-3/4" to punch a circle for a perfect fit. I pushed the punch all the way in from the top. Then I stamped the Hot Air Balloon image with Ballet Blue. (FYI - depending on your project, some of other images work better stamped first, then punch out center)
Fill the Sweet Treat Cup with candy (buttons, jewerly, whatever will fit). Remove the liner and attach to cardstock piece (mine is 2-3/4 x 2-3/4).
Then run adhesive around the edge of the cardstock piece and place the Sweet Treat Cup into card from behind.
View from front is above and view from back is below.
I'm sure there are other ways to assemble these adorable Sweet Treat Cups. Just use your creativity!
