WPlus9's "Sweets and Treats" Cards

Happy Thursday!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous day.

Today at work we are celebrating a new co-worker and saying good bye to two lovely women with a little celebration. I thought I would post a few cards that I created using WPlus9's "Sweets and Treats" set to start the celebration off. I don't know about you but I cannot resist a lovely cup cake. If you must know, cup cakes or a piece of cake are my downfall when it comes to eating well. Especially chocolate!!

The first card I created I die cut and stamped one of the cup cakes, a flower and a stand from the "Sweets and Treats" set. I then colored them in with my Copic markers.

I layered the cup cake over a piece of vellum that was adhered to green card stock base and a fun panel of purple checked paper. I LOVE these two colors together. They make me so happy!!

I then die cut a banner and stamped the fun sentiment. I then used adhesive foam to make it pop.

Next I used a pin and stamped a little banner for over the cup cake. My last step was to add an assortment of sequins and a little Wink of Stella over the flower. I think this card is one of my new favorites.


My next two cards I copied from one of the WPlus9's designers. In fact, her card made me want this set in the first place. I cannot find the link and I apologize on that. I like to give credit when I can.

On the original card, the designer stamped five cup cakes. I die cut a piece of white card stock and could only fit three cup cakes on each of my cards. I then colored them in with Copic markers.

I mounted the first card on a blue A-2 base.

This card stock from Simon Says Stamp matched perfectly with the blue polka dots in the right cup cake. Please ignore the coloring on the red cup cake. For some reason, red Copics always bleed on me!!

To enhance a few of the elements, (the polka dots, the cherry, the tiny flower and the red flower middle) I used glossy accents. It is hard to see from the photo but it gives these details a shiny appearance.

I used the same design for my second card.

However, I mounted the panel with adhesive foam onto a lime green card base rather then blue.

Again I used glossy accents on some key elements and a Wink of Stella pen on the daisy. Instead of blue sequins, I added white.

I really enjoyed making these cards too. They were simple but I think came out oh so pretty!!

That is all from me today. I thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!
