Inspiration Week: Introducing Sweet Shoppe Stamps & Word Die

Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of our inspiration week!  Today I am sharing ideas using our new Sweet Shoppe stamps and dies!  :)

Up first is a card focusing on the soft serve ice cream cone from the set.  I started by coloring one of the ice creams blue for fun which sparked the idea of coloring them in a rainbow of bright colors (your guess is as good as mine what flavors they are).  To add a little personality I stamped a happy face from the set onto one of the cones and then added glossy accents to the ice cream portion of each cone.

For my card panel, I inked the bottom portion up with Tumbled Glass Distress ink using a jumbo dauber.  I finished off my card with a sassy sentiment from the set.

For my next card I inked up my background with Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Broken Glass distress inks.  I then used those same inks to stamp a trio of sprinkles to form a subtle repeated pattern on my background.

I cut a 3" circle from white cardstock and stamped my sentiment using a MISTI tool and coordinating colors of distress inks.  By using the MISTI I could repeatedly ink up the individual letters until they stamped a solid image.  I then colored each of my candies with Copic Markers, arranged them around my circle (popping some up with foam tape) and then coated the centers of each with glossy accents.

For my third card I lightly drew diagonal lines across my black cardstock panel 3/4" apart and then repeatedly stamped the word "sweet" using clear VersaMark ink. I then sprinkled a rainbow of different embossing powders starting with red and working my way to the opposite corner.  If you don't have a lot of embossing powders on hand, you could also heat emboss in white and then use an alcohol based marker to color over the top.

For my sentiment I cut the word "sweet" using the Sweet Word die and colored it in coordinating colors with my Copic Markers.  I then cut 4 more sweet words from black cardstock to layer under the rainbow one.  It pops up the word and gives it a cool look when viewing it from an angle.  I completed my card with some simple machine stitching along the top and bottom of my sentiment panel, adding a simple cupcake with rainbow sprinkles.

For my fourth card I completely switched gears and went with a Neapolitan ice cream color scheme.  I adore pink and brown together, don't you?  To give my cones some sparkle I colored over the ice cream portion with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and then went over the top with glossy accents which really magnifies the sparkle.  For my pink scalloped edge, I stamped and die-cut the edge using our Sunny Borders Stamps and coordinating dies. I completed my card with a sentiment heat embossed in white and a sprinkling of some pale pink iridescent sequins.

For my last card I wanted to do a partial die-cut treatment of the sweet word die so I hung the bottom of the word off the edge of the cutting plates so that when I ran my sandwich through the machine it wouldn't cut along the bottom edge.  I then took my craft knife and a ruler and trimmed along the edge to form a small strip below then word.  I then trimmed one end off of using our Fishtail Banner dies.

The Sweet shoppe set comes with a stamp of 12 connected sprinkles that were designed to stamp on half the doughnut and then flip around and stamp on the second half of the doughnut. This allows for quick and easy decorating of the donuts, cupcakes and ice cream while still saving some space on the set for more images.

For the jelly filled doughnut, I cover the doughnut hole on my stamp with a bit of scotch tape, inked up my stamp, peeled off the tape and then stamped my image.  I then was able to stamp the swirl of frosting in the center.  I completed my card by giving the bottom edge a decorative scalloped edge with our Sunny Border dies.

This set can create 15 unique sentiments perfect for both card making and scrapbooking.  The sprinkles and toppings in the set can also mix and match for endless customized cupcakes and donuts.
